Create with Connie & Mary CCMC145

I can't believe a new month of Create with Connie & Mary is here! I so love to participate as a Design Team member. Remember, we only use Stampin' Up! products now for our challenges.

Today's card features the "Always Elegant" stamp set and a sketch challenge:

This sketch lended itself to a "Clean & Simple" (CAS) card:

I used a "Blush Blossom Stampin' Write Marker" to color in all the open circles on my stamped image and added a "Glimmer Brad" in the center. I also snuck 2 "Decorative Label Punch" shapes on the side of my stamped image layer. It really didn't take much to make this card elegant.

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Blush Blossom, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz
  • Stamp Set: Always Elegant
  • Inks: Basic Black, Stampin' Write Markers
  • Accessories: Seam Binding Ribbon In Pear Pizzazz, Glimmer Brads
  • Tools: Decorative Label Punch, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, Large Oval Punch

Won't you come play with us this week? I appreciate all of your comments. Tell me what you think of our new "Stampin' Up! only challenges!


  1. This really is elegant - love how it turned out!

  2. Love the embossing! The Pear Pizzazz adds the perfect "pop" of color!

  3. Deb this is gorgeous!!! I love those colors and embossing. I agree the pop of green is beautiful. Hugs,
