CCMC 212

Good morning everyone! Welcome to the first Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge of August! I still find it hard to believe that we are into August! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these fun colors.                                     


Real Red, Sahara Sand and Basic Black. A lot of neutrals with a pop of color. Love it!! Since the Holiday mini has been debuted, I decided I wanted to use the cute Googly Ghouls set. So here is what I came up with.


I just love this little mummy!! And Frankie, from the same set, also stole my heart! I used the sketch at Retro Sketches. his is just a super fun sketch and I knew that everyone would come together! So I adhered a piece of the Basic Black designer paper to a card base of Sahara Sand. One end of a piece of Basic Black card stock is punched with the scallop edge border punch and the other end has the two corners rounded. On top of this is a piece of Whisper White and the panel is popped up onto the card base. Then I stamped the mummy in black StazOn onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut him out. He is popped up onto the card. I added a flagged strip of Sahara Sand and a black button with some white baker's twine. My pop of red is a little heart punched with the owl builder punch. And we can't forget the googlie eye!! I love these!! Under the panel I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in black StazOn. So fun!!


Be sure to visit Create with Connie and Mary to see what the other designers have done with these colors. I hope that you all will play along, too! I always love to see what you do with our challenges! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
