CCMC Saturday Blog Hop: Celebrations Edition Week 2


Hello everyone! It's time for another Saturday Blog Hop from the Create with Connie and Mary design team! We have finished up Week 3 of the Cards "Create"tions Celebrations edition! Wow! Time flies when you're having fun! I hope you all were inspired by the fabulous projects that were shared! If you didn't get a chance to subscribe, it's not too late! You can still subscribe to the edition and see all the fabulous ideas that were shared over the last three weeks! I am your stop after the super talented Debbie Henderson!

I used the Pictogram Punches stamp set this past week. I love this set for its versatility and for the fact that it's so easy to use with the coordination punches - the itty bitty accents punch pack! We have gotten two graduation announcements! WOW! I can't believe that these young ones are old enough to graduate! One of them I taught when she was in fifth grade! Anyway, I thought that the sentiment "you're a star" was a perfect for a graduation card! So I used the school colors (blue and white) and added a bit of silver to make a money holder. What graduate doesn't want money?


And a picture of the inside where you can see I used the envelope punch board to make the tab...


  • The base is Pacific Point
  • Run another piece of Pacific Point through the Big Shot using the Lucky Stars embossing folder and then adhere to base
  • Cut the two stars from Whisper White using the Stars framelits and adhere to the money holder using dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Pictogram Punches onto a piece of Whisper White using Pacific Point then flag the end and round the top left hand corner with the Project Life corner rounder then adhere to the holder
  • Add a strip of silver foil paper 
  • Punch a star from silver foil paper using the itty bitty and adhere to the sentiment

Now it's time to send you on to see what the fabulous Connie Babbert has to show you! If you would like to see a list of all the stamp sets that were used during our edition, you can find that at the Create with Connie and Mary website. And while you are there, why not sign up to see all the creations made with those sets! Thanks for stopping by and for all your support! Have a great day!

Argyle Greetings

Hello everyone! It's finally Friday! After I get out of school today, we will be headed to Denver for soccer games. I think Nick is healed! Yea!! Nick is very bummed that he has to miss Fat Tire Festival here but it is supposed to rain all weekend. Of course, I don't think that would have slowed him down anyway - lol!

Today's card is another easy one! I was going to make it for a swap but then came up with another idea. So I thought I would show you all this one!

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Run another piece of Very Vanilla though the Big Shot using the Argyle embossing folder (note: I wanted the argyle going up and down so only part of the piece of card stock was embossed)
  • Adhere the embossed panel to the card base
  • Adhere a strip of Basic Black to the card where the embossing ends
  • Punch a circle from Basic Black using the 2 1/2" circle punch and pierce around the inside edge using the Essential paper piercing pack
  • Stamp the shoes image and the greeting from Guy Greetings onto a piece of Very Vanilla using Tuxedo black Momento ink and punch out using the 2 1/4" circle punch
  • Adhere stamped circle to the black circle with dimensionals
  • Adhere circles to card with dimensionals
  • Add two Basic Black candy dots to card
Super simple!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Guy Greetings; Paper- Very Vanilla, Basic Black; Ink- Tuxedo black Momento ink; Accessories- 2 1/2" circle punch, 2 1/4" circle punch, Essentials paper piercing pack, Neutrals candy dots, Argyle embossing folder, dimensionals

Bright Balloon Bash

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going super! I keep thinking - will this week ever end? Ugh! I also keep thinking - will this month ever end? It just seems to be dragging. We are supposed to head to Denver tomorrow because the soccer team has two games over there this weekend. But Nick has been sick with allergies and I am not sure we will make it. It wouldn't bother me to stay home - lol! We will see...

Today's card was an experiment. Not sure I am thrilled with it but it's bright and fun and very mailable!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Stamp the two balloons from the Balloon Bash stamp set onto the card base using Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry
  • Stamp the greeting onto a piece of Whisper White using Tempting Turquoise and cut out using the Chalk Talk framelits then adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones
Super easy! Did you know that the Create with Connie and Mary Cards "Create"tions Celebrations edition is in its third and final week? Wow! I hope you have been able to see all the wonderful creations that have been shared! If you haven't subscribed it's not too late!

Control Freaks Blog Tour: Time to Celebrate


Hello everyone! Welcome to the Control Freaks Blog Tour! We are so excited to inspire you with our ideas with the theme of Celebrations! I am your stop after the talented Patty Bennett! Please note that if you are viewing this before the 20th, all the links may not be working. Be sure to stop by again on the 20th when everything should be in working order! Now on to my projects...

For my first project I used the Cheerful Critters stamp set. I just think these little guys are the cutest! And you can put any small sentiment inside the signs! I love it! I thought that this little guy would be great for a young boy's birthday or achievement! I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch to help me with the layout.

  • Card base is Whisper white
  • Run a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock through the Big Shot using the Lucky Stars embossing folder and adhere to card
  • On a piece of Whisper White stamp the image from Cheerful Critters using Tuxedo black Momento ink and stamp the sentiment inside the sign
  • Color the bear using Crumb Cake and a blender pen and his shirt using Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz markers
  • Cut a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock and use the fringe scissors to fringe the end then adhere to the stamped panel
  • Tie a piece of linen thread around the panel and then tie a button gold basic metal button on
  • Adhere the panel to the card with dimensionals
For my next card I went a little more sophisticated. I love sunflowers. So I wanted to try to recreate a sunflower since I don't have any sunflower stamps. I found an idea where someone had layered the stamps from the Petal Potpourri stamp set and a light bulb went off (trust me, it doesn't happen often - lol)! I love how this turned out!


  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On another piece of Crumb Cake stamp the sentiment from Because You Care stamp set using Early Espresso ink
  • Adhere the panel to a piece of Early Espresso card stock and then adhere to the card base using dimensionals
  • Stamp the butterflies stamp from the Perpetual Calendar stamp set onto the card base using Crumb Cake ink
  • Stamp the solid flower image from the Petal Potpourri stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White card stock using So Saffron ink then stamp the lined image right over the top using Hello Honey ink (note: it is most helpful to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig)
  • Punch the flower out using the Flower Medallion punch
  • Stamp the flower center onto a piece of Whisper White using Early Espresso ink and punch out with the 7/8" scallop circle punch then adhere to flower with dimensionals
  • Cut the leaves from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Flower Fair framelits and adhere to the back of the flower
  • Adhere flower to the card
  • Thread a piece of linen thread through a gold basic metal button and tie a bow then adhere to flower center
I hope you have gained some inspiration! I now send you on to the fabulous Wendy Weixler to see her beautiful creations! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a super day!

Hello everyone! And welcome to Week 2 of the Create with Connie and Mary Cards "Create"tions Celebration blog hop! We have just finished week 2 and we end each week with a fun blog hop featuring the stamp sets that we used during the week! I am your stop after the fabulous Debbie Henderson!

This week I used the Snuggles & Smooches stamp set! This is such a fun and versatile set! I decided to create a candle centerpiece. I haven't done a stamped candle in so long I had almost forgotten how to do it - lol! I did forget how much fun this was to do! And it is really very easy!


  • Stamp a piece of white tissue paper using the large and small scribble images using Crisp Cantaloupe and Bermuda Bay inks and then stamp the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar
  • Use a piece of waxed paper and the heat gun to melt the tissue paper into the candle (the tissue paper was used to hold the tissue paper in place)
  • Stamp the large and small scribbles onto a piece of Whisper White using Tuxedo black Momento ink
  • Use a Crisp Cantaloupe marker to trace the lines of the larger scribble image and cut out then use a Bermuda Bay marker to trace the lines of the smaller scribble image and cut out
  • Use the large oval punch to punch three ovals from Pistachio Pudding card stock
  • Adhere the leaves to the back of the flowers
  • Adhere the smaller flower to the larger flower using dimensionals
  • Adhere a strip of Bermuda Bay sequins to the back of the flowers and then adhere the flowers to the candle with dimensionals

What the what?! I could not believe it! And it snowed for half the day! So I am happy for the rain. Guess I had better find my umbrella!

Gold Butterfly

Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is going great! Mine seems to be going really fast! The wind blew yesterday and now my allergies are really bad. Ugh! I wish it would rain!! Hopefully today will be a little more calm. All this dust just gives me a headache! I did get a lot done yesterday! I got all my cards done for stamp club which happens tomorrow night and a few others! Today is a day of stitching and then I really have to get the laundry finished up! And then it's another busy week at work!

Today's card was inspired by one I had pinned. I liked how the card used the washi tape. It seems that I get all this washi tape and then never use it so I decided to experiment here. Not sure it's my favorite but I like the sparkle!

Busy day again but it will be fun! I will miss my parents and hope they have a safe trip back home. Whatever you are doing today, I hope it is filled with many special memories and blessings!

Today's card was inspired by a sketch at Sweet Sunday. And because the blendabilities are no longer available, I had to come up with another way to color these beautiful blossoms - markers and blender pens.

  • Color the image in using Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral markers and a blender pen
