Glimmery Christmas Greetings

Hi Thursday friends! Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge!

What an awesome layout to get inspired by! A great starting!

I went with a Christmas themed card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Merry Patterns, Card Front Builder Thinlits, Merry Music Specialty DSP, Classic Label Punch, Winter Wonder EF, CCMC

Photographing this just does not do it justice!

I started by flipping over the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper and framelit cutting the trees. I did this to have the trees angled like this. It matched the sketch a little better. I placed that on top of the Silver Glimmer Paper. It’s reversed of what we normally would do.

The other elements I just built after I created the focal point. I like the size of this sentiment from Merry Patterns. It fit the card nicely.

Everyone had a different take on our new sketch this week. Check out the other Design Team cards at Create with Connie and Mary. Link up your cards from the sketch on our Facebook page.

Eclectically Missing You

It Thursday. You know what that means. Time for an awesome challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.

We are doing things a bit different for a few weeks as you can see. We have a neat sketch from the catalog to spark the creativity. You go with the layout or the colors in the above picture.

I went with the layout –

libbystamps, stampin up, Classic Label Punch, Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Layered Leaves Dynamic EF, Oh So Eclectic, Oh So Eclectic  Bundle, Stitched Shapes Framelits

I am totally loving this Oh So Eclectic Bundle! The watercolor pattern paper is called Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper – matches perfectly! It’s part of the suite of products that all coordinate!!

The flag sits upon a an embossed layer made from the new Layered Leaves Dynamic embossing folder. It’s really cool in that it makes different heights of leaves on the paper that is embossed.

libbystamps, stampin up, Classic Label Punch, Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Layered Leaves Dynamic EF, Oh So Eclectic, Oh So Eclectic  Bundle, Stitched Shapes FramelitsI stamped the flower image and then framelit cut it out. Made for a really pretty flower without cutting out the whole thing – there is a separate shape to do that! The sentiment is also in the set too!

You can see what the other Design Team members created on our blog. To link up a card, head to our Facebook page. Join us! Challenges are SO much fun!
