Hello, I'm a Guest Designer!!

Hello, everyone!! I am so excited to tell you that I am going to be a guest designer for the Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection! I don't want to reveal anything about my project yet so you will have to come back here on Wednesday to get a hint of what my project will consist of. I will also have a fun surprise for you on that day!! I will have more information for you at the end of this post but if you just can't wait and want to sign up for early bird pricing then, by all means, click the link above and sign up!! You won't be sorry!!

Today's card is another one for my stamp club last week. I really liked the way this one turned out! I was going to put a small flower under the sentiment but then thought this could be a fun card for a guy! So I added two mini brads instead. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Layer of Etcetera designer paper that was sponged with Baked Brown Sugar and adhered to card base
  • Stamp oval chevron image from Oh, Hello set in Baked Brown Sugar onto Baked Brown Sugar and cut out using Ovals framelits
  • Use Essentials Paper Piercing pack and pierce around oval then sponge with Baked Brown Sugar and pop up onto card
  • Trim the ends of a strip of Night of Navy card stock at an angle and adhere to oval
  • Stamp greeting in Baked Brown Sugar onto Very Vanilla, punch out using 1 3/4" circle punch, sponge with Baked Brown Sugar, add two mini brads and adhere to oval
  • Punch the chevrons from Old Olive with the Chevron punch and adhere to strip
