CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Favorite New Catalog DSP

Good Morning, Stampers!

Welcome back to the Create with Connie and Mary 
Saturday Blog Hop!
This week, we are sharing our favorite new designer papers!


I love the bold, abstract patterns on the Garden Impressions
designer papers. The colors are so beautiful and vibrant!

I cut the papers into 1" squares and adhered them to 
the Whisper White panel. Then I ran the entire panel
thru the Big Shot using the Tuffted embossing folder.

The butterfly was die cut and then glued to the 
designer paper and cut out. A great card that
can be used for any event or occasion!
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Eastern Beauty
Ink: Pacific Point
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Melon Mambo, Garden Impressions
Accessories: Tuffted embossing folder, Decorative Ribbon Border punch, Springtime Impressions thinlits

Wait until you see what the rest of the
design team has created!
Go forward to see Connie's project
or back to see Debbie's project.

Celebrate Dandelions

Good Morning, Stampers!

Do you recognize this stamp set? It's one of my new favorites from the Annual Catalog - Dandelion Wishes! It's pulling double-duty as a fireworks celebration for today's project! I had some festive fabric from another project that I added to the card in a small knot in place of ribbon. Adding a pop of color in the centers using a sponge dauber is so easy and fun!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Dandelion Wishes
Ink: Versamark, Night of Navy, Real Red, Smoky SLate
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Heat Tool, Silver embossing powder, embossing buddy, feative fabric, Celebrate You thinlits, Sponge Daubers, Basic rhinestones
