On the Bright side

Hi Crafting friends, Today is challenge day with the design team on CCEE Stampers.

Pickles Yes Please!

Today is challenge day with the Crazy's team on Crazy 4 Challenges.

 Apparently today is Pickle Day! Are you in a right pickle or a cool as a cucumber??? Create a card inspired by a pickle, either by including a pickle or food that goes with pickles on your card, use the color green … or incorporate a pickle themed sentiment.

 Well I didn't have any pickle images for this challenge, I do love pickles on my burgers.



 My stamp set is from an Australian company called Beccy's Place. I made the base card using a flip die.

Dear Santa

 It is beginning to look like Christmas for the design team on The CCEE Stampers Blog. Our challenge is to create a Christmas card.

Dear Santa …. It’s *Dear Santa Letter Writing Week*. Create a card showcasing a letter to Santa. Maybe your image shows a critter or child or even an adult writing a Christmas wish list or letter to Santa.

I have had this stamp for quite a few years, but it is a Christmas favourite and perfect for this challenge.

Thankful for you

Today is challenge day with the Crazy 4 Challenges design team.

 Give Thanks – Create either a Thank You card or a Thanksgiving Card

The inspiration for my card is a layout design card made by Karen Aiken the Double Charm Accordion, using Karen Burniston Charm Accordion die. Karen has a photo and a video on how to double the Charm Accordion die on her blog, follow the link.


I had the designer paper in my stash for sometime and I decorated the card using the Lawn Fawn tree before and after stamps and dies. This a great slimline card that fit into a business size envelop.

Black Cat Awareness

Today is challenge day with the CCEE Stampers blog design team.

October is Black Cat Awareness month, incorporate a cat of any color on your card this week.



Earlier this month I saw the video tutorial by Eileen Godwin using Lavinia Stamps and stencils. I love the Lavinia stamps range but I didn't have any of their stencils, so I gave it a try with a stencil I did have.
I used distress oxide inks in, dried marigold, tumbled glass, antique linen, weathered wood, to create the background. I used my misti platform to position, Mooch the cat and Tree Goddess Luna and stamping them with jet black ink.
I love the way this turned out and can't wait to play with some more with stencils.

Copper Haunting Highlights

This card is for the Crazy4Challenges design team challenge.

 Create your card using copper accents. Maybe some copper embossing, mirror cardstock, metal embellishments like paperclips, brads, sequins, eyelets or gems.

I have been playing with my glass mat and distress oxide ink pads to create this background for this card. After I was happy with the pattern I added some copper paint speckling with a wet paint brush. I then stamped the tree branch. Using the Lawn Fawn build a house die, and cut it out of stone designer paper and decorated it with the Halloween add on. I also added the copper paint to highlight the black card to look like timber embellishments. I then added the ghosts, bat and spider.

3D cube pop up box card

Welcome to my challenge card for the challenge on the CCEE Stampers blog.
Today we are asked to a card with more than 1 Fold.

Create a card that has more than one fold … Gatefold, Z Fold Card, Easel card etc.


I came across this type of card while I was looking on Pinterest. It has different names depending on where you look, 3D cube pop up box, mini cube card, triple popup, mini cube card, whatever the name they are really fun to make.
 


I made the card in white card and decorated it with designer paper. I then used the Lawn Fawn Snow globe scene stamps and dies. I added them to a circle die cut out of glitter card to create the snow scene.


The card folds flat for posting and you can write your message on the underside.
