Celebrate Baby!

It's Monday and time for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge from Techno Stamper.  I love Mary Jo's sketch for this week, it has so many possibilities!

I made a card with the fun new set Celebrate Today.  I really love this set, you have sooooo many design options!! For today, I went with a baby card.

How sweet is this?!!  I pulled my color inspiration from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  Not only is the paper gorgeous, but it's FREE too!  I started out with a Pool Party card base and a layer of designer paper.

Another layer of Pool Party became the basis of the focal point.  I sponged stars with the star decorative mask to give a soft pattern behind the balloon.  The So Saffron balloon was die cut with the matching framelit (gotta love that!) and stamped with mini stars.  As I've said before, photopolymer is my new favorite style of stamp because you can SEE where you STAMP!!  It made stamping the stars on this balloon a piece of cake!  I added a fun banner and twine to make the balloon perfect.

 The sentiment came from Big News.  I wanted something larger to cover the banner.  I went subtle and used Sahara Sand cardstock and stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  A couple of candy dots at each end completed the look.  Lastly, a twine bow was added along the bottom of the card.  The best part about this card, you can change up the paper and colors easily, you could even change up the sentiments. How awesome is that!  I am going to have to sit down and make baby girl cards, birthday and wedding cards in the same fun design.  It will be easy to do since I have the layout ready to go!

Now, how about a little more inspiration?  Just pop on over to Techno Stamper for more cards from the Design Team.  I hope you will join the challenge as well and make a card with us this week!

Spring Collection Week One Blog Hop!

Wow!! Hard to believe week one of the Spring Collection 2015 from Create with Connie and Mary is coming to an end.  I have really enjoyed all of the Sale-a-bration projects that were featured.  We have a fun blog hop today to share cards made with products we used all week.

You should be arriving from Melissa's fabulous blog, I just love all of her cards!!  My card features Best Year Ever, one of the sets that I used for my project.

I love how cute this card turned out!  It's not hard to come up with ideas when there are so many fabulous Sale-a-bration products to work with.  The Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper has a beautiful group of colors that are truly inspiring!

The card base is Coastal Cabana with a fun tulip style paper design.  The sentiment is two layers, the bottom was cut with a circle framelit and the sentiment is cut with a starburst framelit.

The inside also has designer paper, I love this bohek inspired design.  I stamped a sentiment on the right side and a few flowers along the bottom center.  The sentiment on the circle is from the Circle Flip Card Thinlet set.  I cut four layers in Coastal Cabana and stacked them using a glue pen for adhesive.  This gives the sentiment a bit of dimension and makes it pop a little.  Lastly, I added a few In Color sequins, I can't have a card without any sparkle!

I hope you have enjoyed my card today!! There are lots more to see on the hop!! Debbie Henderson is your next stop, you will love what she's made!

Thanks so much for visiting!!  Make sure you hop all the way through and stop at Create with Connie and Mary to check out more information about the Spring Collection 2015.  We may be starting week 2, but you can still subscribe and join us, there are many more amazing projects to come!

Big Day!

Today IS a big day, my first project for the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Collection 2015 went live this morning!

I am so excited to be on the Design Team again, I really love creating projects for the collections.  Since my first project is all about Sale-a-bratin products, I used one of the sets I featured on this card set.

This FREE set is soooooo much fun!!!  You can do all sorts of cards, including these quick little 3" x 3" ones.  I kept all of them simple, doing two of each style.  One set is in Bermuda Bay and the other in Calypso Coral.

I love the simplicity of these cards, they are easy to make in lots of colors.

The first card is a simple monochromatic with the celebrate sentiment.  The second has a birthday greeting and cake colored with blendabilities.  The best part is how quick they come together.  Now I have some great little cards ready to go!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed today's card set!  Don't forget to go to Create with Connie and Mary to find out more about the Spring Collection 2015!

Happy Stamping!
