CCMC 262!

Have I told you lately that I'm addicted to gray? I was so happy to see the colors for Create with Connie & Mary included our new "Smoky Slate" this week along with 2 more colors shown below:


I'm into the clean & simple with lots of white space lately. This card came together so quickly and beautifully...exactly how I had pictured it in my head. I have a few new products for you today that are available in the new Holiday Catalog, can you spot them?

How  about the chevrons? Do you recognize them? This is a new punch called the "Chevron Border Punch" that you can use in two different ways. The first is by punching the chevron shape and using the pieces that are cut loose like I did above or you can use it as a border punch to cut out the "chevron holes" in your cardstock. I cut 3 different colors of cardstock and glued them one-by-one as you can see above.

I also added a piece of some brand new Silver 1/8" Ribbon tied at the bottom of my chevrons. This ribbon is so light and wonderful to work with and is also new to the Holiday Catalog. 

Below are the two stamps that I used:

First I stamped the "Off the Grid" background stamp using the Smoky Slate Ink and then stamped the sentiment from the "Million and One" stamp set using Jet Black StazOn Ink on top of the grid image.

I hope you plan on visiting Create with Connie & Mary as there are more gorgeous samples to give you some inspiration from the Design Team!
