CCMC Card "Create"tions Week 1 Favor

Good morning, Friends! We have come to the end of our first week of Card "Create"tions at Create with Connie and Mary! What amazing cards and ideas! I am so excited to see what week 2 has in store! And if you are not a subscriber, you still have time to sign up! Don't wait! There are great ideas ready for you to use! And by signing up you get the downloadable tutorials to help your card making be as simple as possible!

At the end of each week of the special edition, each of the designers share a little "favor" or 3-D item using the stamp set that they used for the edition. This week I used the Harvest of Blessings stamp set. I had a lot of fun with this set! I don't own this set and had to borrow it from my friend Becky (thanks, Becky). So the only way to see any of the cards that I have made using this set is to be a subscriber! For my favor today I am sharing an idea that I got from the current Stampin' Up! catalog. These are a sort of plant poke. It's still a little early to be planting vegetables and things but I was thinking how cute they would be at a Farmer's Market stuck in a basket of vegetables! Or as a gift to someone who is an avid gardener! To make these is a super simple process!

  • Cut a piece of Naturals Ivory at 4 1/4" x 2 3/4" and a piece at 2" x 3 1/2"
  • Use the circle framelits to round the top/end of each tag
  • On the bigger tag, stamp the tractor image from Harvest of Blessings in black StazOn and the basket image onto the smaller tag
  • Use a blender pen and inks to color the images (I used Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake)
  • Stampe the sentiment onto the smaller tag with black StazOn
  • Stamp the verse onto a strip of Naturals Ivory that measures 5/8" x 3 1/2" using black StazOn
  • Flag both ends of the strip and adhere to larger tag with dimensionals
  • Tie some linen thread through two of the Basic Metal buttons and adhere to tags
  • I adhered my tags to the sticks with scotch tape but glue dots would work, too

  • 3 weeks of FABULOUS card ideas - 18 different sets (not including our two Preview sets). 
  • Each SET is presented with 4 cards...for a total of 72 EXCLUSIVE card ideas NOT SEEN ANYWHERE ELSE!
  • Each Saturday we will each do a small favor as a bonus item using the same set we use during the week.   These WILL be displayed publicly but only subscribers will see the cards!
  • Featuring designers:  Melissa Davies, Debbie Henderson, Deb Currier, Nicole Tugrul, Connie Babbert, and Mary Brown
The Create with Connie and Mary Card Create-tions session runs from March 30 thru April 19!
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
