Acetate Window

It is time to join my friends at CCEE Stampers blog for this weeks challenge.

Create a card that includes acetate on/in it in some way.


I wanted to showcase this sentiment in a different way than the usual layering. So today I have made a Acetate window card. I have used several dies to create the window, sandwiching the acetate in between and added the Tattered Lace couple die to the side.






Supplies:
Stamps: Clearly Besotted sentiment
Dies: Elizabeth Craft Designs - Stitched circles, Circles
Tattered Lace - Couple
Kaisercraft designer paper

Sweet Desserts

What a sweet challenge we have today on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Did you know that today is national dessert day?! So you know what that means?....please make a card with any sort of yummy dessert on it!  Ice cream, cake, cookies, tarts, pie, Popsicle...whatever you deem to be dessert!!


For my card today I located a old unmounted rubber stamp from the Alota stamp company. In the past I found it difficult to get a clear image with this stamp but with the misti tool I was able to re-ink and stamp the image several time to get the depth of colour that I wanted.
I coloured the image with copic pens and add glaze pens to add dimension to the sprinkles.

Seeds of friendship

Welcome to today's fun challenge with the CCEE stampers team.

Did you know that today is "Old Farmers Day" - let's show our appreciation to our farmers by creating something farm related today.

An hours drive from home is the farming district where they grow fields of sunflowers, so that is the inspiration for today's card.
I recently purchased a magazine with a free stamp set that contained these sunflowers and the sentiments that I have used for my card. They worked so well with the Art Impressions His and Hers gardeners set. I have used the Cherry Lynn step die for the base of my card.


I decorated the inside of this card, to showcase the lovely sentiment and added the picket fence and another sunflower.

Birthday Balloons

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the CCEE Stampers challenge.

Apparently today is “Balloons Around the World Day”. So this week let’s add some balloons to our card.



For my card I have used My Favorite things dies blueprints 26. I very rarely make a card with just die cuts and with out any stamping. I then used some more parts of the set to create the inside of the card.

Bon Appetit

Welcome to another week with the girls on the CCEE Stampers Blog.

Let it snow

It is time to get creative with the Crazy4Challenges team.

Welcome to Kathleen Adams who joined the team while I was away travelling.
Rebecca has issued the challenges for this month and her guest designer is Teresa.

Let's make an interactive card. There are so many cool dies out there for slider, shaker, popup, spinner, lift-a-flap and so many more. If you don't have dies, many of these cards can also be built by hand the way we did it before all the dies! These cards bring so much joy to the recipient! And they are tons of fun to make!


For my card I am trying out the magic card die a Nellie snellen creation from Nellie's choice. I have used the Stampendous images and Sizzix snowflake dies.


I created a belly band to keep the card closed until the wow reveal.

Ahoy

Hello everyone, Welcome to this weeks challenge with my friends on the CCEE stampers blog.

Well I have been missing for sometime, travelling to the United Kingdom and Europe. After having such a fabulous time, it has been rather difficult coming back and getting back into the routine of daily life.

I would like to take the time to say Hi and Welcome Kelly, who joined CCEE Stampers while I was away. Kelly has issued the challenge for this week.

Create a card  to celebrate talk like a Pirate Day that was earlier in the week.using anything pirate related and extra 'treasure/booty' for using a map
anywhere on the card!

For my card I created a twisted easel card using designer papers and La La Land Luka Stamp and some sentiments and dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
