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!

Paper Folded in Half

Hello my Thursday friends!

I have a wonderful card created for Create with Connie and Mary and our newest color challenge –

Lovely colors!

And, I used them to create this lovely birthday card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Birthday Wit, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Sweet Soiree DSP, Balloon Builder Punch, Journaling Pens, CCMC

Fun, colorful! A card suitable for anyone – young, old, male, female!

I started by stampin the greeting in two colors, Old Olive and Calypso Coral. I hand cut Happy Birthday from one of the images. The other one, I framelit cut close to the words. That way, adding the Happy Birthday, it’ll hang over the edge!

I added those to a Whisper White card base with a full 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Designer Series Paper on the front. The balloons added a nice ‘birthday’ touch!

Check out the other Design team cards on our blog. Want to create a card and show off your work? You can do so on our Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing you there!

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!

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

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!

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!

Featuring Flowers – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Hello my Saturday friends! Time for a Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Our theme this week features flowers.

Or in my case, a flower –

libbystamps, stampin up, Beautiful Day, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Petal Passion DSP, CCMC

I love this Beautiful Day stamp from the occasions mini! I’ve used the butterfly several times. Now time to show this gorgeous flower some love!

I colored it in with one of our Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers. The leaves I colored in with the Old Olive Blends. I’m not sure why I used two different markers for coloring. But, it worked out well.

I softened the background by using a vellum oval off to the side. I added more leaves because the image only has one. Simply done!

The others on the team have created some lovely flower cards as well! Go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown. I know you’ll be inspired by all of us!
