Emerald Faries




Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazy 4 challenge team.

The gem stone for May is the emerald. Use some shade of green on your card—bonus points if it’s emerald green.

I have used Distressed inks to create my background, for this card, sponging several layers of ink, with a mist of water in between the layers. I have use Lavinia fairy stamps for this scene. The sentiment is from a clear Kaisercraft set.

Wildflowers in the sunset sky

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another challenge with the CCEE Stampers Team.

  The second week in May is Wildflower Week.  Let's include some flowers on our cards today.


I created my background with distress inks, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry, dried marigold,mustard seed and a brayer. And stamped images from an Indigo Blue set that was free in a magazine some time ago.Then die cut it with the Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched rectangles and layered it on to card stock.

Fairy Dreams


Welcome to another Month of Challenges with the CCEE team, this month Lois is our hostess.

 I found a weird celebration to start off the month.  May 4th is National Candied Orange Peel Day.  To celebrate, let's include the color ORANGE (which just happens to be one of my favorites!) on our cards.


I chose to play with some distressed inks, orange, yellow, pink and purple to create my background. All images are from the Lavinia stamp range.

When    I    think    of    April    I    also    think    of    flowers….spring    is    here    and    flowers    are    blooming.        That    is    probably    why    April    is    National    Garden    Month.        Make    a    card    that    includes    floral    or    garden    images.

Tea Cake


Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazies from Crazy fro Challenges.


Yesterday was Tea Day … so for our challenge this week let's incorporate something Tea related on our cards …. Not into tea then what about coffee!

What is a cuppa without something sweet to go with it?
This stamp from Stampendous with the tea cup and and cupcake, just looks the treat for this challenge.


The card flat for posting.


On the inside I have used this doily designer paper to showcase this tea set die from cottage cuts.


It is just simply a few scored fold lines to create an easel card. The top of the coffee pot is mounted on foam tape to act as a stop for the easel.

Space Advenutre

April    is    also    Global    Astronomy    Month.        Create    a    card    having    to    do    with    astronomy,    such    as    moons    and    stars,    but    not    limited    to    that.        You    could    also    fantasize    about    alien    creatures    and    space    travel.        Use    your    imagination….Dazzle    us!!!  



I decided to make this fun slider card to show case these cute stamps. Even though there are specially designed dies for this technique I just used two different sized circle dies. I attached the spaceship with foam tape to a button so that it moves around the planets.
