Welcome to a brand new week at Create with Connie & Mary. We have a color challenge for you this week. We are using these colors:

I used the new "Banner Punch" that you can earn for FREE in our Sale-a-Bration Catalog along with the coordinating "Banner Blast" stamp set that you can also earn for FREE:

The embossing is from the embossing folder "Scallops". Don't you just love all the rows of scallops this folder creates in one swoop of the Big Shot?

Make sure you visit the other girls on the design team to see what they are up to this week. I promise they won't let you down!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Smoky Slate
  • Inks: Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Scallops Embossing Folder, Banner Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Baker's Twine
  • Stamps: Banner Blast, Really Good Greetings
Thanks for stopping by to visit!



  1. Pretty CAS card. love the color combination. The blue and yellow go so well together.
    Such a wonderful and meaningful sentiment.

  2. I've yet to do a banner with that banner punch, and love how you used it along the greeting, too! Great job with the color challenge!

  3. Love all the banners you created! Such a great mixture of prints and colors! Looks so cool against the scallop background!

  4. This is so pretty - loving the colors....reminds me of sail boat sails....so pretty and bright! I used the stamp set and punch to make a similar banner for Valentine's Day for a nephew and family...SO EASY and fun to create....great idea and wonderful card!!!

  5. This is awesome! The scallops remind me of ocean waves behind your banner. And I love how you added little details to some of the banners. But my favorite part is the the 2 banners offsetting the sentiment. Cute!

  6. This card is sure to brighten anyones day! I love the bright banner against the Smokey Slate!

  7. This is such a super cute card! I love the banner at the top that goes in two directions. Plus the two little banners next to the sentiment is just perfect! You did an awesome job with this week's colors!

  8. Love the way you used the banners on this card. Looks like clotheslines crossing over with fun towels hanging on them! A cheerful card! Great working with you on Create!
