Favorite New In Color – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Thank you for join me today and the Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Our theme this week features Favorite New In-Color.

Ok. Tough one. They are all easily a favorite!!

Thursday, I featured a card with tones close to Lovely Lipstick. So, today, shades of green for the new In-Color, Call Me Clover.

I randomly stamped the small and large leaves in Call Me Clover on Soft Sea Foam, also a new color. I inked them once and stamped them up to three times before inking them up again. Made for the softer colors.

The framelit cut leaves are really cool as you cut the outer shape, then emboss the leaf pattern in the center. Either order works. I can’t wait to play with these more!

Well, ‘you are wonderful’ for stopping by!

I am curious to see what the others favorite colors are! Go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown.

Love What You Do Bundle – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Happy May 5th!!!!

Playing with new stuff for Create with Connie and Mary and our Saturday blog hop.

Our theme this week features the Love What You Do Bundle.

It will be in the upcoming catalog, but is available for purchase now. It’s a really pretty suite of products. You can see them here.

I went with a brighter card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Love What You Do, Got To Have It All Bundle, Layering Circles Framelits, Share What You Love DSP, Rich Razzleberry 1/4 Velvet Ribbon, Pearlized Doilies, Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, CCMC, Stitched Shapes FramelitsThe colors in this suite are absolutely gorgeous!

My base here is Rich Razzleberry. I layered on the new color, Grapefruit Grove, then a piece of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.

It’s hard to see, but the Grapefruit grove was embossed on the ends with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.

We are all creating cards using the suite pf products! You’ll be so inspired! Go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown. They’ll have awesome creations!

The Designer Series Paper is just fabulous! Here, I cut the flowers out individually for the sketch! When you look closely, you can see that they are pearlized –

All About Neutrals – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

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

Our theme this week features cards containing neutrals.

Who doesn’t love neutrals?? Just about every card ever created uses at least one neutral!

I created this ‘sweet’ card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Sweet Cupcake, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, CCMCSadly, this is a retiring stamp set and framelits.

This card is fun and whimsical. The icing is layered neutral colors. Just plain fun!

This card would be great for a variety of occasions : someone you’re thinking about, just to say hi, a birthday, to name a few.

I’m sure both (forward) Debbie Henderson, and (back) Mary Brown have some lovely cards!

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – CASE a Blog Hop Member

Happy Easter my friends! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and see my creations!

I decided to CASE this post from Mary Blocher of Power Huff stamping. Take a quick peek, but come right back so you can follow the hop! She made a set of narrow cards using this Designer Series Paper, oval and circle framelits, and flowers.

These are my cards –

libbystamps, stampin up, Yay You, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 2 1/2 Circle, Petal Passion DSP, BFBH, blog hop

They are the Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes from the Occasions Mini. The set comes with Whisper White, but I made mine in these soon to be retiring In-Colors. These are cut 9 x 2 1/2, scored at 4 1/2.

Here is an up close of each card and a little about them –
libbystamps, stampin up, Yay You, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 2 1/2 Circle, Petal Passion DSP, BFBH, blog hopThis is Flirty Flamingo card stock. I used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper on all the cards.

libbystamps, stampin up, Yay You, Petals & More Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, 2 1/2 Circle, Petal Passion DSP, BFBH, blog hop

This is Peekaboo Peach. I used two different framelits on the set, Petals & More and Stitched Shapes. I have gotten so much use from these two – well worth the investment!

This is Sweet Sugarplum card stock. All the sentiments are from the hostess set in the Occasions mini, Yay You. Very encouraging words – I love them!

Hippity Hoppy Easter Favor – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Happy Create with Connie and Mary blog hop day!

Our theme this week features Easter favors.

Perfect, as I made these sweet little Easter bunny treats for my co-workers and Card Buffet attendees on Sunday.

libbystamps, stampin up, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Petals & More Framelits, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, Classic Label Punch, Leaf Punch, Tutti-frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins, CCMC, Easter treats

Aren’t these just too sweet? I originally saw these from a European demonstrator. I modified them to fit American nugget chocolates.

Super, super easy!

libbystamps, stampin up, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Petals & More Framelits, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, Classic Label Punch, Leaf Punch, Tutti-frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins, CCMC, Easter treats

  • Bunny is a strip of designer series paper, 1 x 12. Score at 2, 5 1/4, 6 3/4 and 10. Nugget wrap is 1 x 3.
  • Use Tear & Tape on the ends, folding in, towards the center on the ends.
  • The two center score lines, fold towards each other.
  • On one of the ends, doesn’t matter which one, where the edge is adhered, apply another strip of Tear & Tape.
  • Stand bunny up, and adhere two ears together.
  • Wrap nugget and insert in bunny base.
  • Decorate. I used the Silver Baker’s Twine from the Spring mini to tie around the ears. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes punches with the Classic Label Punch. Pink flower is from the Petals & More atop the trimmed Leaf Punch

The side view shows the beautiful colors of the paper –

It took way longer to write out the directions than it did to whip up a batch of these! it’s a nice favor because you can use any kind of designer series or patterned paper you have on hand. Great for those scrap strips too!

I am so excited to go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown to see their Easter treats! I might be making even more treats for friends!!!

Happy Easter Peeps

Before we know it, Easter will be here – it’s about two weeks away!

Made any cards to send out yet? Perhaps, I will inspire you today!

Our challenge this week at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday is a layout challenge –

Challenge #360. Theme : Easter

I love this sketch! It’s fabulous! Nice, clean, bold blocks of color.

I went with a nontraditional Easter theme on my card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Hello Easter, Foxy Friends, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Petal Pair EF, Basket Weave EF, TSOT, Easter

It’s just adorable! Wouldn’t you agree?

I started out with my colors and then went to adding the embossing and placement on the card.

I cut the ‘bunnies’ from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I removed the ‘arms’ with a straight cut. And, I cut the ears a little deeper and longer. Stamped the face from the Foxy Friends and this is what I call a bunny!

The other Design team members created some nice Easter cards too! Check them out on our blog. If you like to link up a card, you can do so on our blog or our Facebook page. Hope to see you there!
