Create with Connie and Mary 232 & Sneak Peek

FRIDAY! FRIDAY! FRIDAY! A very good Friday morning to you! I have finally recovered from all of the junk that I ate on Christmas day. I do love some chocolate and I made some Chocolate Walnut Fudge that was not bad if I do say myself! LOL! What are you all up to this weekend? I’m off to Manhattan tomorrow morning, I think I will be taking the train in because we are supposed to get some snow. Have mentioned before that I’m not a fan of the white stuff? I hope it will be minimal and gone fast.

For today’s post I have my Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card. I was one of their top three picks for last week! Thank you very much ladies! This week we have a color challenge…

CCMC 232

Nice and cool colors and and some bling! I went with a Valentine’s theme for my card. The base is Whisper White Card Stock and for the background I embossed a piece of Pool Party with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used the 1/2″ Circle Punch to “ticket” the corners and adhered it to the base with SNAIL. The main image is from the Love Heart Single Stamp and is stamped in Pool Party and punched out with the Full Heart Punch. Under that is a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper that I cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies*. The heart is adhered to the Glimmer Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The larger heart under that is cut out with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies and I used the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack* and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce around the edge. The tickets are from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set* and are stamped in Pool Party and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. For the smaller hearts I punched out some more Silver Glimmer Paper with the Small Heart Punch. All of the elements are adhered to the background with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the cool color combination and the ticket stamps are one of my favorites out of the Spring Catalog. I hope that you liked this week’s card for Create with Connie and Mary. Thanks for checking in with me and enjoy the rest of your Friday!

  8. Oh the chocolate this holiday season! I love chocolate and I’m trying not to eat it all at once you should see the box my boys gave me for Christmas – the biggest thing I have ever seen and really not what I needed! Great Valentine card!

Thanks for joining the color challenge this week at Create!
