CCMC 269

Good morning, Friends! It's time for another Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week it's a sketch challenge! Take a look!

And my card:

I wanted to use stamps that have been neglected as I seem to be using Halloween, Thanksgiving and even Christmas stamps more now. So I pulled out Notable Notions and went simple. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Layer of Baked Brown Sugar that was run through the Big Shot using the Argyle embossing folder
  • A layer of Etcetera designer paper was sponged with Baked Brown Sugar
  • Flag a strip of Etcetera designer paper and adhere to sponged piece
  • Adhere a strip of Night of Navy card stock that was trimmed at one end then adhere panel to card
  • Stamp tag from Notable Notions in Baked Brown Sugar onto Very Vanilla and cut out
  • Punch hole in tag and thread some 7/16" Naturals Trim through and tie a piece of linen thread around this then pop tag up onto card
  • Use the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch to punch the scallop circle from Pool Party and lightly sponge edges with Baked Brown Sugar
  • Use the 1 3/8" circle punch to punch a circle from Calypso Coral and adhere to scallop circle
  • Stamp sentiment from Notable Notions in Night of Navy onto Very Vanilla and punch out using the 1 1/4" circle punch then adhere to other circle
  • Pop circle element up onto card
  • Add a Calypso Coral candy dot to center
Be sure to see what the other designers did with this fun sketch at the Create with Connie and Mary website! I hope you will be inspired to play along with us this week! We always love to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Love the color combo Deb, nice to see that dsp used and I love the pop of coral.

  2. Deb, I just love your clean and easy style. It's very relaxed, but precise and I love it. This card has fun details that keep my eyes moving so I can catch them all!

  3. I like the very light sponging and the hint of Calypso Coral is perfect!

  4. I don't have the Etcetera DSP, so I had to go look at it...darn it! Might need that now! Great card! Love all the little details!

  5. Love your clean and simple style! The colors look fantastic with the pop of coral!
