CCMC261!

Welcome back Create with Connie & Mary challenge players. Our last challenge lasted 2 weeks due to the Stampin' Up! convention but we are now back to our weekly schedule. We have a cute sketch for our challenge this week:


And I decided to go "Clean & Simple" with this one:


Don't you just love black & red together? Always makes for such an elegant duo. I stamped the large focal image from "Beautifully Baroque" using "Jet Black StazOn Ink" and then added the sentiment to the very bottom of the card. The sentiment is from the stamp set "Really Good Greetings" in "Real Red Ink". I then added the cute butterfly from the "Best of Butterfly's" stamp set, hand cut and glued in place with "Stampin' Dimensionals":


Stampin' Up! Supplies:
  • Inks: Jet Black StazOn, Real Red
  • Stamps: Really Good Greetings, Beautifully Baroque, Best of Butterflies
  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Large Scallop Edgelits, Stampin' Dimensionals
All of us girls on the Create with Connie & Mary have a great line-up of projects to show you this week so don't forget to hop over there and visit!


Thanks for stopping by to visit!
