Create with Connie and Mary 237

Posted on

Woo hoo… it’s Friday! The end of another work week and the start of the glorious weekend! Do you all have some good stuff planned for this weekend? I’m off to Manhattan on Saturday morning and then I plan to have a relaxing day on Sunday. There is always so much to do and just not enough time to do it all. If I could give up sleep I gladly would! I could get so much more done!

Today’s post is for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary. This week we have a sketch challenge from the ladies…

CCMC 237

A nice clean layout with some great possibilities. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Midnight Muse with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Before I adhered it to the card with SNAIL I used some Sticky Strip on the ends of the Pool Party ribbon from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack to hold it in place. The panels are Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and are cut out with the Scallop Rectangle Clearlit. I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut 1/3 off of each one and adhered them to the background with SNAIL. The fun little whale is form the Oh, Whale! Stamp Set and is stamped in Midnight Muse and cut out with the Happy Whale Clearlit. I mounted him to the card with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and used the same to adhere the greeting that is from the same stamp set and is stamped in Pool Party. I punched it out with the Word Window punch, it fits just perfectly! I really like the Pool Party and Midnight Muse together and the whale really is cute. I hope that you like my Create with Connie and Mary challenge card for this week. Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fantastic Friday!

  1. Thanks Justin for sharing this cute card! I just love the Whale stamp set, I’ve made a bunch of cards with it. Yes, we have great plans for this weekend because it’s my daughters’ 18th. birthday on Sunday! Happy Birthday to Sara! Tomorrow we(my older daughter Shay, Sara and I) will go into the city for some Birthday shopping and then on Sunday we are having a Superbowl Party around 3pm. When that is finished we are all taking Sara out to dinner for her birthday! You have a fun weekend! Take care,
    Donna from California!

  2. What a cool card. I had to look up the Scallop Rectangle Die – guess what I’ll be ordering next week! I love how you’ve cut it. I will have to give this challenge a go myself. It’s Saturday here in New Zealand so it’s time to get the chores done then some crafting time this afternoon. I hope you have a great weekend and thanks for sharing your wonderful creations. I look forward to seeing your posts every day.

    • Thank you Paula! That is the forst time I have used it and I reallik it. I kept thinking that I needed to use it with a stamp! Friday work day is almost over here and not soon enough. Good luck with your crafting later. Thank you very much for stopping by! 🙂

  3. Wow – you can even make a whale look elegant! Excellent card! Have a Fabulous Weekend!
