You’ve been Boo’d – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

What, about three (OMG) two more weeks until Halloween? Well, we’ve got lots of great ideas for you here on the Create with Connie and Mary blog hop for the next three Saturdays.

Our theme this week is funny, ‘you’ve been boo’d’! We are using the word ‘boo’ on our cards.

Not a problem. I’ve been wanting to use the Creep it Real stamp set a few more times before the month is up.

I just started stamping the word ‘boo’ and set it aside. Found some black and white Designer Series Paper from Pick a Pattern (it’s on special until the end of the month!!!) and looked for something that resembled ghosts.

I don’t have the Paisley Framelits, which make awesome non-ghost ghosts, but, I do have the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits. There is the Pick a Pumpkin bundle that has a gourd stamp and framelit. The framelit worked like a charm to create a little ghost! And, the eyes from the Spooky Cat worked soo good here!

I added the smallest Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the inside of the eyes for some added drama. It was indeed the right added touch!

So, for more added BOOness, go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown. I know you’ll be inspired!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Creep it Real, Spooky Cat
  • Framelits – Patterned Pumpkins
  • Card Stock – Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie (duh), Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White
  • Ink – Black Memento
  • DSP – Pick a Pattern (on sale)
  • Punches – 1 1/4″ Circle
  • Other – Black Rhinestone Jewels
Happy Stampin’

It’s Black & White, Hugs & Kisses

Happy Thursday to all! Ready to be inspired by another Create with Connie and Mary challenge? We got a new one –

Simple, bold layout.

I went with a black and white beauty –

libbystamps, stampin up, Lovely Inside & Out, This Little Piggy, Lovely Words Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Lovely Inside & Out Bundle, Pick a Pattern DSP, CCMC

It’s a square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card. It’s a scrap I had ready to go! Don’t you just love that??

libbystamps, stampin up, Lovely Inside & Out, This Little Piggy, Lovely Words Thinlits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Lovely Inside & Out Bundle, Pick a Pattern DSP, CCMC

A sweet addition to this card is the little kisses behind the ‘hugs’. They’re from the, This Little Piggy stamp set. It was the perfect detail to add behind the sentiment. It was rather plain without it.

The other Design Team members created some lovely cards using this sketch, check them out on our Create with Connie and Mary blog. To link up a card to our challenge, you can do that on our Facebook page.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Lovely Inside & Out, This Little Piggy
  • Framelits – Lovely Words, Stitched Shapes

  • Card Stock – Basic Black, Whisper White

Pieces & Patterns Thank You

Happy Thursday! Got one last catalog challenge for Create with Connie and Mary today –

This is a fun one because there are a four ideas to choose from. I chose the lower right card.

libbystamps, stampin up, Pieces & Patterns, Pick a Pattern DSP, CCMC

I haven’t taken the time to play with this adorable stamp set and coordinating paper yet. And, it was some of my first items to purchase when the new catalog was available to us! I was afraid to use new stuff I guess!

libbystamps, stampin up, Pieces & Patterns, Pick a Pattern DSP, CCMC

This is a 4×4 card layered with the Designer Series Paper, Pick a Pattern. The sentiment is stamped from the coordination stamp set, Pieces & Patterns. The two sweet dinosaurs and plants are fussy cut from the pattern paper in the pack. It has some really cute images suitable for just this purpose!

It’s just an adorable set. Now that I’ve pulled it out, I will play around with it more!

The Design Team created some really terrific card for this challenge. Check them out on our blog. To participate in our challenge, head to our Facebook  page. You can submit a card there.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Pieces & Patterns
  • Card Stock – Sahara Sand, Whisper White
  • Ink – Emerald Envy
  • DSP – Pick a Pattern
