Create with Connie and Mary #250

Posted on

Happy Friday! Not so happy for me as I have to work tomorrow. Sigh… oh well what can you do?! It was gorgeous here yesterday and is supposed to be a little chilly today and then back to beautiful tomorrow. I really do love riding around in my car with top down. It’s so nice to feel the sun and the wind on you face. Sometimes it’s the little things that make our day! What’s on tap for your weekend?

Today’s card – Create with Connie and Mary Colors #250…

CCMC 250

A very neat color combo and I immediately thought of This & That Epic Day goodies. The base of my card is Pool Party. Some Epic Day This & That Designer Series Paper makes up the background and the hexagons that I cut out with my Paper Snips. For the chevrons I used my 1″ Square Punch to punch out some Calypso Coral. The greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set* and is stamped in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Ticket Duo Punch to punch it out and the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack to create the backing. I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary Color challenge card for this week and thank you for stopping by. Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors!

Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
