CCMC237 – Hearts a Flutter

Posted by: | Comments (10)


It’s Thursday which means it’s time for a creative challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.  Here’s the sketch we got to work with:


Isn’t this a fun and different layout?!

Here’s what I came up with:


My first thought upon seeing the sketch was to cut up a scallop square and use that as the background.  Once that was decided, I flipped open my new package of Print Poetry DSP and picked a pattern to work with.  I took my color cues from the pattern and formed the focal point using those colors and the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching framelits.  I finished it all off with an Itty Bitty sentiment. 🙂

Supplies used:

Stamps – Hearts a Flutter, Itty Bitty Banners

Ink & Paper – Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Basic Grey, Print Poetry DSP

Accessories – Big Shot & Hearts a Flutter framelits, Polka Dots embossing folder, Bitty Banners framelit, Scallop Squares Duo die, 1 3/4″ circle punch, stitched satin ribbon, dimensionals

Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary to see their interpretation of the Color Challenge! And…sign up for the Spring Edition 2013 of Create with Connie and Mary while you are there!!! You’ll be glad you did!

Ten Never-Before-Seen Images!

Stampin’Up! has had a great response so far with single stamps. So much so that they are offering ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps available through March 31, 2013.

Single stamps can be ordered in the online store or as a customer order.

These won’t be sent in typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).

This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.

There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.

These stamps are only available through March 31, 2013, so get them while you can!




Dude youre welcome-2


At Stampin’Up! we had an idea – as a guy, it’s not always easy to express yourself. You know you want to say it, but you just don’t know how. That’s why we’ve created the Dude, You’re Welcome! Kit. Quickly build a card that says just what you want it to say, whether it’s “#%&@!” because you messed up (when does that happen?), for a Special Occasion (you know the occasion), “I _____ You” (love, adore, miss, see?), or a simple “Thank You.”

We’ve got your back.

Dude, you’re welcome.

This new kit includes:
* Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted)
* Twelve 4″ x 6″ postcards in four different (manly) colors
* Twelve gray envelopes
* A Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad
* An instructional guide (for those who look at instructions)
