Create With Connie and Mary 217

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited to share with you that Holly Endress will be joining us at Create With Connie and Mary for the month of September as a guest designer!  I sure hope you'll pop on over to her blog to show her some love!  

Today Connie and Mary have cooked up quite a great sketch for you.  I think it's perfect for showing off gorgeous DSP and some fantastic stamps.  Take a look:



I couldn't resist using my Wonderfall stamp for this sketch. I love layering the leaves and they are perfect for a little rock-and-roll coloring.  I added some pretty baker's twine and button for a finishing touch!  I actually waffled a bit about whether or not I should add a sentiment to this card but decided against it.  I often like to leave cards blank so that I can add an appropriate sentiment at a later date.  One thing for sure is that fall is definitely in the air because the challenge this week at The Paper Players is to use leaves or trees on a project.



There's still time to sign up for the Create With Connie and Mary 2012 Holiday Edition.  Don't forget to head on over to Create With Connie and Mary to find out all about it and to check out the latest inspiration from the design team for this latest sketch challenge. You won't be sorry!

Love your use of the DSP! The cool sponging on the edges of the stamped leaves is fantastic. Perfect without the sentiment!

Gorgeous!!! Love how your card shows off the beautiful dsp! Love those beautiful buttons!

Love the whole warm, fallish affect. Reminds me of leaves on a platter setting on a gingham table cloth. Love the Rock-n-Roll affect on the leaves, too.

Gorgeous card, Jen! Love that DSP...almost a country feel to it combined with the leaves. Definite feel of FALL in your card! Great job with the sketch challenge this week!

Blank card are always good to have. I always loved have the Sincere Salutations set for that purpose - because I could quickly add what I needed.
