Sprinkling Happiness (CCMC184)


This week it’s time to play along with a great sketch at Create with Connie and Mary. I am even more excited than normal as today they’ve announced that I’ll be a Guest Designer for the Occasions Edition of Create with Connie and Mary!



My project today showcases the products I’ll be using on my original project that will be showcased in early February.  You can only view this project (and so many wonderful others) if you subscribe to Create with Connie & Mary Occasions 2012 Edition. Join now and take advantage of the early bird pricing of just $29.95 – a $5 savings – for 6 weeks of amazing projects by some very talented artists! (early bird offer ends January 14th)


I wanted to use the Gnome Sweet Gnome set in a bit of a different way so I used the watering can and sentiment only. I stamped the image with Basic Gray and used the Pinking Hearts border punch to get that tiny little heart which I added on with some Tombow.



Along the bottom of the Crumb Cake card stock, I embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder. From far away, this has the look of ruffled paper! Over the seam is some Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon and a little Basic Gray button was tied on with some Linen Thread.


Hope you like what I’ve shown you today and I strongly suggest you head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and subscribe for the Occasions Edition or just head on over there and play along with this week’s challenge!
