Tumble and Flip

Welcome to this weeks challenge card for the CCEE Stampers team challenge.

Lois is our hostess this month and says this is the 60th anniversary of my graduation from high school -- June 9, 1959.   So the challenge for the team this week is to make a card depicting their favorite subject in school. 

I can't say I really had a favourite subject at school so for my card today I went with the one I really didn't like at all. I am totally inflexible and uncoordinated so when it was time for gymnastics class I wished I was somewhere else.





I have used Waffle flower tumble on stamp set and the lawn fawn magic picture changer die.

Over the fence

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazy4challenges team.

 Summer’s here and hopefully we can all get outdoors and into nature. So this week let’s use wood grain on your project. Images, embossing, even real wood paper or veneer shapes.




I have this cute bunny set from Gerda Steiner designs and wanted to use most of the images to create my card. I liked the idea of the bunnies peeking over the fence , so I have used designer paper and the stamp image on each page.




I chose to make a waterfall card with Karen Burniston frame pull card die. You can find the tutorial that Karen shows you how to convert the die into a waterfall card here.

Wine and Coffee

Today I am sharing the card I have made for the Crazy4challenges team challenge.

According to the days of the year calendar it is wine day, create a card with this in mind.

I may just be using this sentiment quiet a lot in the next 12 months with both of my daughters making wedding plans for next year, it will be some fun times ahead.




The sentiment is from Riley and company and I have created a tag book using Karen Burniston's circle tag book pop up die along with her Coffee and wine charms.



Each charm element on the inside had been sponged with distress oxide inks, I have also added Karen's coffee stencil ( now retired).


Here a couple of close up of the charm elements.

Hope your day is......

Today I am sharing the card I made for the CCEE Stampers challenge. 

Frances says "I don't know about you, but I seldom seem to create a card these days that doesn't include at least one die in it's creation. So our challenge this week is to create a card using at least one die."



This is my first attempt at a card using the Lawn Fawn reveal die. It looks a bit difficult but it really isn't, the hardest part was finding the sentiment and stamped images that matched.




Supplies:
Lawn Fawn reveal wheel, Reveal wheel sentiment, reveal wheel stencil template, mushroom border die, simple wavy banners die, designer paper - spring fling and scallops and Your next stamp - Fairy tales homes, copic pens, oxide ink, wink of stella glitter pen.
