Eat Drink and be Merry

Welcome to the last challenge of the year with the CCEE Stampers team. It is time for a break to spend some time with family, but we will be back early in the new year.

Apparently the 8th December was Gingerbread Decorating Day and yesterday 12th December was Gingerbread House Day. So for our challenge this week create a card or project that is a Gingerbread theme.



For my card today I have used some Christmas paper from my supplies. The gingerbread men  stamps are from Becky's Place and I used the retired stamps & dies designed by Karen Burniston, Anita Frames pop-up and Label & Circles.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers have created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.

Ripper Chrissy


Welcome
Here is another card made with stamps in the same stamp set from Beccy's place. I found this designer paper in one of my Christmas paper stacks. It was way cute and match the ones in the Kangaroo pouch.

Trio flip

Hello, I have made a few Christmas cards that I will be sharing over the next few days.

This one used the Sizzix triple flip die for my base card I have had it for a few years and it is great to use when you need a quick card. I have added stamp images from Lawn Fawn.


This card also fits this months theme that I do with some friends.
Challenge make a card using Christmas or Sizzix products.

Elf Antics

Welcome to the CCEE stampers challenge card. Today our challenge is Elf Antics.........

 One of the traditions I love to do at Christmas has to do with Elf of the Shelf. I know some people love them and some people hate them … I am in the love category :) For our challenge this week include an elf on your card.


I made a center pop up card using Karen Burniston dies in designer paper and added the Fawn Lawn elves.

FGM Arrow Fold

Welcome, today my card is for the challenge that I do with some friends each month, so that we take the time to craft in our busy lives. This month our challenge was to create an arrow card.


This is the first time I have made one but there are quite a few different styles out there if you search for them. I used the Gerda Steiner stamps for my card. We had a debate on whether the flap should be glued down and decided it was a matter of personal taste, I haven't in this photo but I am considering it.

Circles and Squares

Welcome to today's challenge with the CCEE Stampers team

Circles and squares are simple geometric shapes. Make a card using at least one of each.



It is the time of the year when you just need another Christmas card, I like the idea of having the star floating in the center circle and the little Santa Bear flying through the stars.
I used  gold foil card for the Merry Christmas die cut for a little bit of glamour.

Take a hike

Welcome to today's challenge with the Crazy 4 challenges team.

Last week, on the 17th, it was Take a Hike Day. Be inspired by a hiking theme. You could create a scenic card or have one with hiking boots, use your imagination.


The thing I like about challenge is that it make you use supplies that you have had for awhile. That is that case with the this bear stamp. I created the scene background with distress oxide inks and fitted it into the backdrop window so that it looks like Fred Bear is taking a long hike. I used a die cut portion for my center insert.

 

Supplies
Lawn Fawn Stitched hillside backdrop, forest border dies
My Favorite Things Fred Bear takes a hike.
Distress Oxide inks, copic pens, foam tape
