Favorite New Catalog Bundle – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Saturday Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Our theme this week features our Favorite New Catalog Bundle!

Perfect chance to play with some wonderful new stuff. I’ve been having way too much fun with the Broadway Bound Suite. Time to give some other products some love.

How about the Bouquet Blooms?

It’s a really interesting set because the pieces interlock together!

Looking into the inside of the card, you can see it more apparent as it opens.

The inside of the card has the detailing base that gets decorated on the outside.

Going back to the card front, I cut additional Call Me Clover leaves and trimmed them to place over the pink ones cut into the card front.

I also stamped and framelit cut several flowers in Pineapple Punch. I placed one over the pink flower also cut into the card front. The others were placed randomly on the card front.

I tucked one aditional leaf behind the flowers and added the oval sentiment.

To create this lovely card, you start with a 5 x 9 piece of card stock. The framelits line up at the ends to cut the detailing. They even leave a tick line so you know where to score to fold the card.

The finished card is 3 1/2 x 5. Perfect for an envelope from our Note Card & Envelopes or make one using the Envelope Punch Board.

I’m anxious to see what everyone, including Debbie Henderson, and Mary Brown have chosen as their favorite new catalog bundles! I know we will both be inspired to see all of the projects on the hop!

Bold & Bright Colors – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Happy holiday weekend! Thanks for taking time out for the Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Our theme this week features Bold & Bright Colors.

This is so fun since Stampin’ Up is introducing new colors officially June 1st!

I decided to mix old with new for this summerish beauty –

libbystamps, stampin up, Abstract Impressions, Petal Burst EF, Daisy Punch, Petal Pair Embossing Folder, Petal Burst Embossing Folder, CCMC

The newest color on here is Pineapple Punch, the bright yellow! Followed by Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay for some added interest.

These colors are definitely bright, bold and eye-catching!

The embossed panels added some dimension and interest to the card.

I’ll be featuring this card on my card Buffet on Sunday!

Go forward to see the bright fun Debbie Henderson has to offer, and back to Mary Brown’s inspirational color choice. I know you’ll be inspired by all the Design Team!

Serenade Thank You

Happy Thursday. We have new colors to inspire you at Create with Connie and Mary.

Our new challenge for the week –

I had lots of fun creating this card for the challenge –

libbystamps, stampin up, Southern Serenade, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, CCMC, Blends

I hadn’t played with this Southern Serenade stamp yet – and so happy it’ll be in the next catalog!

I stamped the flower image in Basic Grey first. I used an Aqua Painter and ink pads to color the leaves and the flowers. After that dried, I took the Light Pool Party Blends and went around the image to so soften it. So pretty!

I finished off the card with Baker’s Twine and the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy also outlined in the Blends.

I think this Light Pool Party Blends is my favorite new tool!  

The other Deign Team created some beautiful cards with these colors! Check them out at Create with Connie and Mary. You can also show what you did with these colors on our Facebook page! We’d love to see your creations!

Sweet Rose Thank You

Happy Thursday! I’ve got a beautiful card designed for Create with Connie and Mary and our new color challenge this week –

These color are soo pretty!!

I needed a thank you card so I pulled out a new stamp set to create this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Abstract Impressions, Whisper White 1/4 Organza Ribbon, CCMC, 2018-2019 Stampin Up

All the images are from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, even the ‘thank you’ sentiment. I made a generously sized square card, sized at 5 x 5 to showcase the beautiful image.

I look forward to playing with this set many more times!

Hello, Are You In?

Happy Tuesday! Time for a Try Stampin’ on Tuesday new challenge –

Optional Theme : Shades of One Color

Since Stampin’ Up is having a color revamping – this is a perfect time to showcase the new 2018-2020 In Colors!

I am featuring the new Blueberry Bushel here –

libbystamps, stampin up, Accented Blooms, Petal Palette, 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 Assortment, Tailored Tag Punch, TSOT, 2018-2020 In Colors

And the rest of the colors here –

libbystamps, stampin up, Accented Blooms, Petal Palette, 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 Assortment, Tailored Tag Punch, TSOT, 2018-2020 In Colors

Top is Grapefruit Grove and Blueberry Bushel. Lower row is, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch.

The two stamped sentiments are from a new upcoming stamp set, Accented Blooms. They’ll be available June 1st. The stamped dots are from the Petal Palette.

These cards, the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes are a new size too. They are for the Memories & More kits – makes making cards from the kits way easier. They will come in two sizes for the two sizes of cards in the Memories & More kits.

Here, I just cut the card, 3 1/4 x 8 1/2, then scored at 4 1/14. I did these myself because I like the fold at the top of my card. I’ll use the envelopes included in the kit for these cards.

The Designer Series Paper is in the new In Colors. And, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I can see this will be a popular item!

Check out the other lovely Design Team cards on our blog at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. You can link up a card there, or on our Facebook page if you’d like to join the challenge. It’ll go on for two weeks.

Thank You, Thank you, thank you

Hello my Thursday friends!

You know its time for a Create with Connie and Mary challenge!

This week, we have a new layout –

Took me no time to pull out some soon to retire Stampin’ Up items to create this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Rose Wonder, Lots of Labels Framelits, Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Pick a Pattern DSP

Black and white are always a classic!

I started with creating my focal element, using the Lots of Labels Framelits. The flowers and leaves are from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. I will so miss both these versatile items!

As I adhered the while flower to the black base, I only added Tombow glue to the center of the flower so it stands away from the base.

The ‘thank you’ is from, also retiring stamp set, Rose Wonder. I inked it up and stamped it three times, not reapplying ink. (Looks like my stamp has some lint on it…..it happens!)

Everything was placed on a piece of Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper, which was adhered to a Whisper White card base.

Quick. Easy. Elegant.

Check out the other Design Team cards at Create with Connie and Mary. I am sure you’ll be inspired! If you’d like to add a card to our challenge, you can do so on our Facebook page.

Stampin’ Up Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Rose Wonder (retiring)
  • Framelits – Lots of Labels, Eclectic Layers (both retiring)
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Basic Black
  • Ink – Black Memento
  • DSP – Pick a Pattern (retiring)
Happy Stampin’
