CCMC 221 and Guest Designer!

Posted on

A very good morning to you all! I have some exciting news to share with you today. I will be a guest designer on Create with Connie and Mary for the months of October and November!! I’m so happy to be a part of such a talented team for the next two months! I have been a fan of theirs since I started with Stampin’ Up! last year. What an honor! For my first week with the talented ladies we have a sketch…

I love the simplicity of it and I’m a big fan of flags! I wanted to keep the card clean and simple so I thought the best stamp to showcase would be the Heart of Christmas. The base of my card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Primrose Petals with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The flags are created from strips of Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper. I stamped the Heart of Christmas Stamp in Lucky Limeade and again in Early Espresso. I cut out the center of the sentiment on the Early Espresso piece and mounted it to the Lucky Limeade piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. It’s backed by a piece of Real Red and a piece of Early Espresso before being adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Heart of Christmas stamp is definitely one of my favorites out of the new Holiday Catalog. I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card this week. Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and post your card for this week’s challenge, I look forward to seeing what you do with the sketch! Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!
