Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #604 Dressed to Impress

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a sketch.

CCMC604

As I began to think about this challenge, my Best Dressed Designer Series Paper was lying on my desk.  I just love the beautiful flowers in this pack.  I had to use it.

CCMC #604 Best Dressed by Jo Anne Hewins

My base is Blackberry Bliss.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.

The patterned paper is cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I wanted just a small border around the edge.

The next Blackberry Bliss paper is cut to 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.  The designer paper is 3 x 4.

The Petal Pink strip is cut to 1/2 x 3 3/4.

CCMC #604 Best Dressed Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The banner for the front is cut from Whisper White using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The saying, in Blackberry Bliss ink, is from the Dressed To Impress stamp set.  

Stamp the flowers in Blackberry Bliss.  I used the Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends and the Dark Old Olive Blend to color the flowers.  The center is in Dark Daffodil Delight.  Cut out with the All Dressed Up dies.  I have used the stamp set and dies.  The Dressed To Impress bundle is a better value.

CCMC #604 Best Dressed Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside is from the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  Stamp in Blackberry Bliss.  Stamp three flowers along the bottom in different orientations.  Color as on the front.

A Little More Forever Blossoms

I'm a sucker for a flower stamp.  There, I admit it.  That's why I ordered the Forever Blossoms bundle as soon as I could.  As a review here are a few links to earlier posts that feature this bundle.  Click here and here and here and here.  Here is my card for today.

Forever Blossom in Purple Posy by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card I used the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 3 3/8 x 4 7/8.  I cut this to stamp on since I'll be using Blends to color.  The color does bleed to the back.

Stamp the flower stem in Memento Black ink.  Color in using the Light and Dark Purple Posy and the Light and Dark Old Olive Blends.

The patterned paper is from the 2019-2021 6 x 6 In Color Designer Series Paper.  It is cut to 3/4 x 3 3/8.  I always use my Grid Paper to make sure that glued paper is straight.

Forever Blossoms Purple Posy close up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying on Whisper White in Memento Black.  Cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and adhere with dimensionals.

Add the single flower and leaves to the banner.  Color them with blends as above.

I used 2 different pieces of the Purple Posy designer paper.  Which do you like best?

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #593 Small Bloom Punch

Happy New Year and welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #593.  I've taken a little time off, but I am back.  I'll be trying to post now on Monday, Thursday, and Friday.  I hope that you will take a look on those days and that you'll enjoy my samples.  

When I last posted I had fallen and dislocated my right shoulder.  For now I'm wearing the sling all the time and trying not to move the shoulder very much.  I go back to the doctor on the 16th and hopefully I'll begin therapy soon after.  I can still stamp, but movement is limited.  I am not in pain at the present.

CCMC593

Our colors for this week are Purple Posy, Petal Pink, and Mint Macaron.  I chose to use the Small Bloom Punch and the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set that coordinates with it for my sample today.  Both can be earned for free from the Sale-a-Bration brochure on pages 12 and 13.  The punch is free with a $100 order.  The stamp set is free with a $50 order.  Best of all, we have been told that the Small Bloom Punch will be available in the next annual catalog!  A $150 order gets you both if you choose them and host benefits!

CCMC #593 Small Bloom Punch by Jo Anne Hewins

When looking at the photo, I see that a few of my centers had moved.  Can I blame it on being crippled?  Well, you know how it should be!

Start with a base of Mint Macaron that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Purple Posy layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set, stamp stems at the bottom left corner in Mint Macaron.  I also stamped the stems going out for my bouquet from the top of the stems just stamped.  I randomly stamped in the large leaf stamp over the area where I wanted to place flowers.  I wanted them to show through in the space left between flowers.

The flowers were punched from Purple Posy designer paper from the 2019-2021 6 x 6 In Color Designer Series Paper.  I used 11 of them.  Stamp the center for this flower using the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and the Purple Posy marker from the 2019-2021 In Color Stampin' Write Marker set.  Just color directly on the stamp with the large end of the marker.

Stamp on Petal Pink designer paper from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Make sure that one of the petals points is straight up and you'll have no trouble punching them out.

Use a bone folder to curl the petals back.  Place the flowers on a Stampin' Pierce Mat.  I then used the handle end of a paper piercer (retired) in the center of each flower and pushed down.  This makes the flower look more 3 dimensional.

The centers of the Purple Posy flowers are from the 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.  The centers of the Petal Pink flowers are from the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.

CCMC #593 Small Bloom Punch Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Adhere all flowers with glue dots.

Add additional leaves in Mint Macaron if you see they are needed.

Stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron.

Add a bow using the Petal Pink Organdy Stripe Ribbon with a glue dot.

CCMC #593 Small Bloom Punch Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of my card.  It's all from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set.

CCMC#593 Small Bloom Punch by Jo Anne Hewins

This card might look hard, but the punch makes it pretty easy.  Don't we all love free stuff!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #568

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #568.  This month we will CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from the new 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  We might decide to copy the layout, the colors, or elements of the card.  This week we CASE the card found on page 22 of the catalog.

CCMC568

I copied the layout of this card.  I also noticed that the flowers on the catalog card were cut out from designer paper, so I incorporated that element as well.  Here is my card.

CCMC #568 Free as a Bird by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Old Olive 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The CASE card has some stamping along the bottom of the base, so I stamped off the bird from the Free as a Bird stamp set and stamped that along the bottom.  That covered a little over half of the bottom of the base.

The Daffodil Delight patterned paper is from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Both pieces are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.  The first is added with snail from the top and toward the right.  For the second daffodil layer, there is a 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of  Old Olive paper with keys.  I added a cut out of birds from yet another sheet of the Bird Ballad paper.  Include the branch and some of the lovely flowers.  Add the Daffodil Delight layer with dimensionals.

CCMC #568 Free as a Bird Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The sentiment is from Free as a Bird.  Stamp in Old Olive on a 1/2" scrap of white.  Add snail to the bottom of the thank you and dimensionals to the top part.  Add along the olive key paper.

CCMC #568 Free as a Bird Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Free as a Bird.  The birds are more cut outs from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  This pack of paper is so beautiful!  It makes card making super easy!
