Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday and it truly is a happy day!  The Design Team has been busy getting ready for the debut of our Mini Session  at Create with Connie & Mary which will happen tomorrow for all of our subscribers  and today we post our Saturday Blog Hop! First lets talk about our Mini Session. Please be sure to visit my blog tomorrow as I will have a project showcasing the stamp set I will be featuring in our Mini Session.

There are 5 of us designing for this session and here's what we've got in store for you:
  • A mini session includes the tutorials for FIVE projects with full step-by-step tutorials:
    • Each mini session includes THREE card sets, each with 4 cards
    • Each mini session includes TWO 3D items perfect for your club or stamp camp
  • All FIVE projects are available once the mini collection opens so you immediately have all projects (and tutorials) right there at your fingertips
  • AND we are showing 'snippets' of the projects and letting you know what sets we used!
  • Mini session goes live on July 26th
  • Cost is $8.95
  • Sets used for this collection
    • Made with Love
    • Cottage Greetings
    • Over the Rainbow
    • Awesomely Artistic
    • Garden in Bloom
AND FINALLY...here's a little teaser for our July Collection...

There's still time to sign up and receive all of our projects in one sitting! Make sure you do that okay? Now let's move on to our Saturday Blog Hop:

So our theme for today's hop is "Can't Resist Me". There are several ways to achieve this. You can use the Color Me Irresistible DSP or the resist technique with Clear Embossing Powder. I chose to use the designer paper for today's card:

I used the designer paper that has little tear drops that are embossed in clear over white paper. I added color to my paper by sponging three ink  colors. I started at the very bottom with Island Indigo Ink, followed by Pool Party Ink and finally finished the sponging with Soft Sky Ink:

All of the stamped images are from the "Land To Sea" and "By The Tide" stamp sets which I hand-cut and glued to my card front. I will list all the products I used at the bottom of my post but for now, here are the links to view the remainder of the hop. You can click in either direction to get there:
