Create with Connie and Mary 251

Hey there! How are we all doing today? I’m doing great! Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous, lots of sun and topless driving! I did my cleaning in the morning and then some crafting, went and had lunch with my friends, did some more crafting, went to my daughter’s school to see her art exhibit and then went to dinner with Anthony and Bill. A very nice day indeed! Today it’s supposed to rain so it will be a good day to do some more crafting!

Today’s post – Create with Connie and Mary Sketch 251

CCMC 251

I’m really liking the new Photopolymer Stamps, they have a nice modern feel to them and lining them up is a breeze. The base of my card is Smokey Slate Card Stock*. The lines up the card on the right and all of the other stamped images are from the Show & Tell 2 Photopolymer Stamp Set and are either stamped in Bermuda Bay* or Smokey Slate*. The piece of paper is from the Floral District Designer Series paper Pack. The chevrons are cut out with my Paper Snips and the panel of DSP is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. It’s a nice simple modern graphic card. Thank you very much for visiting with me today to see my Create with Connie and Mary Sketch 251 card. Have a great Saturday no matter what you do!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
