Hiya friends and welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! This week the gals have a sketch challenge for you:
I wasn't sure at first quite what to do with it--there's a lot of parts and pieces--but I just received a pack of the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit and was inspired by all the paper and colors:
I just love the happy colors and modern prints in this kit! It's a pretty straight-forward card with clean lines and clean stamping--not a distressed edge or spritz anywhere! This is more the style of stamping I did when I first started before I was lured to the "dark side" with sponges and spritzers, files and blades, oh my! LOL! It is interesting how our styles evolve and it's fun to go back to the roots now and then, right? My little tree is stamped in Lucky Limeade with the Pennant Parade set and rests on a Whisper White oval made with the Ovals die.
I kept the fun going on the inside with another tree and a sentiment from Petite Pairs. It can be tricky to line up the tree stamp exactly with the little pot, so for this one I stamped the pot but used a punched piece (with the Petite Pennant punch) for the tree. That way I could put it exactly where I wanted it!
It's been a long day so that's it for me folks! I hope you enjoy today's card, please let me know if you have any questions. I do hope you'll check out the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary design team and consider playing along with us. Thanks for visiting!
