CCMC251!

Good morning stampers and welcome to a new sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary!


I wanted to use the stamp set "Moving Forward" one last time before it disappears forever! This stamp set is part of our "Help Us Make A Difference" to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The image that I used below had not seen ink yet so it was time to use it!


This little hot air balloon is so sweet. I like the little flag banner that I colored with a Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker. I also created clouds for my background. I have a free tutorial on my tutorials page if you would like to learn how! Just click HERE to be directed to the page.


I used such an array of products on this card to make it interesting. How about Rhinestone Jewels, Designer Buttons, Rhinestone Jewels colored with a Permanent Black Marker and a few stamped images in the background from the Clockworks stamp set:


Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler
  • Inks: Craft White, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Pool Party
  • Stamps: Clockworks, Moving Forward
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels, Designer Buttons
  • DSP: In Color Paper Pack
  • Tools: Word Window Punch, Big Shot Machine, Bitty Banners Framelits Dies, Labels Collection Framelits, Scallop Circle Punch, Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by to visit!

  1. TOO cute...love the little banners trailing behind the blimp! We have a friend that flies planes trailing these types of banners, this card would be perfect for him! Great job with the sketch!

    1. Thanks Connie, I almost didn't use this card for our challenge this week as I thought it may be a tad bit too busy for my liking!
