Exciting News!!!

I am beyond thrilled to announce that I have been invited to be a Guest Designer at Create with Connie and Mary!  They are getting ready to begin their Spring Collection 2014 and you can join now at the Early Bird rate of $24.95 US and save $5 off the regular $29.95 US price.  You will get tons of 3D and card ideas...make sure you hop on over to their blog to see all of the details and to sign up at this great Early Bird price!

This week is Preview Week at Create with Connie and Mary and I am sharing with you a sneak peek of the set I will be featuring for my Guest Designer project, Perfect Pennants.

This is such a versatile set and the first one I ordered from the Occasions Catalog.  I wanted to do something with a masculine touch, so I chose my colors first...Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse. I used markers to color in my "Make a Wish" stamp and cut it out with the coordinating Banners Framelits Dies.  I stamped the "a" again in Gumball Green, punched it out with the small circle punch from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and popped it up on a Dimensional.  The striped pennants were stamped on Whisper White cardstock and cut out so I could layer them between my Gumball Green and Whisper White banners. To finish my card off, I stamped the stars in Daffodil Delight and covered them with Dazzling Details.  I made sure they were completely dry before I cut them out and adhered them to my card with Dimensionals.  

I hope you enjoyed my preview card and don't forget to head on over to Create with Connie and Mary to sign up for the Early Bird special!
