CCMC 361 & 362

Good morning, Friends! Are you getting ready for a big Fourth celebration? We are all leaving for a big Kansas celebration! Usually we go and have a big firework display at my parents' house. My son LOVES to shoot them off there because they allow the BIG fireworks! Here in Colorado it's a "no-no". But this year is a bit different because we are going to celebrate my parents' 50 anniversary! We are going to spend time as a family doing some fun things in the big city of Kansas City! I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and being together!! And since we will be seeing the Royals play tomorrow, I do hope they help us celebrate with a WIN!! Lol!! It will be a short trip but a very fun one!!

For today's card I decided to use the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge from last week and this week's color challenge! Another super simple card!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Stamp the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge onto the card base using Crumb Cake ink
  • Cut a strip of Lost Lagoon to make a banner and run both pieces through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder then sponge the edges using Lost Lagoon ink and then adhere to card
  • Stamp the crab image from You're Sublime using black StazOn ink and color in using an aqua painter and Real Red ink then punch out using the 2 1/2" circle punch and adhere to card with dimensionals (I also added some Soft Sky around the image)
  • Thread a piece linen thread through a gold basic metal button and tie a bow then adhere to card
Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team did with these fabulous colors! Such great ideas and all so different! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
