    The Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions mini session started March 31 and runs thru April 20!

    So today the designers have a special sketch to share with you all today. Mary has worked up another great little preview of what the Card "Create"tions for all Occasions is all about! You will also find this at the Create with Connie and Mary website but if you go to Mary's blog, you will also have a chance to win some blog candy!! We know how much you love blog candy!! So be sure to visit her website to find out how to win!

    So how did I use Mary's sketch? Well, check this out!

    A friend let me borrow her Secret Garden set and coordinating framelits dies. So I have been having some fun using this set as much as possible before I return it to her! Now this is not one of my sets for the special edition (so I really hope you subscribe so you can see those). I kept my card really simple just like the sketch! I adhered a strip of Wisteria Wonder designer paper with the end flagged to a card base of Whisper White. Then I adhered a strip of Elegant Eggplant with the end flagged to the card. Right above these I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Elegant Eggplant. Then I used an oval framelit die to cut an oval from Whisper White. I stamped two flowers from the Secret Garden set in Wisteria Wonder and then popped the oval up onto the card. Then I cut two leaves from Lucky Limeade designer paper using the Secret Garden framelits dies. I adhered these to the oval. I stamped the solid flower in Pink Pirouette onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card. Then I threaded some white baker's twine through a Regals designer button and adhered it to the flower center. Finally I added some rhinestones to the oval. 

    Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to find out how to subscribe to the Cards "Create"tions for all Occasions edition! You will also find Mary's special downloadable project sheet and don't forget about her blog candy! Have a super day!!
