Die cut blooms

 Today is sketch challenge day on Crazy4Challenges blog.

I had this sheet of die cut paper toil panels that I picked up from a discount store sometime ago in my supplies. I thought it was about time that I used them. The card is a bit bigger that normal so it would be mailed for double postage.



I added the sentiments in die-cut circles to match the sketch.

Tower Pinwheel

Today on the CCEE Stampers Blog the design team are celebrating Swap Ideas Day.

Tomorrow (9/10) is Swap Ideas Day. For today’s challenge, find a card you have seen using a new technique to you, or a new color combination, or anything you’ve never done before and make a card. Be sure to credit the person whose idea you have used.

For the swap ideas card I chose the Tower Pinwheel card that I had seen recently. I have since discovered that there are different ways to fold the card. I made my card by scoring the base card to create the box and 1 arm and then I added the other arms.


The card is sized to fit a stitched rectangle die that I have used to cut out the designer paper background.


I have used dies to decorate some pages


And stamps on other pages.


The top view of the pinwheel, it folds flat for postage.


The inspiration for this card came from Karen Aicken. Karen posted her card on her blog Painted Mountain Cards in August.

Supplies:
Karen Burniston - 1143 Holiday Charms, 1177 Merry Christmas Shadow, 1065 Merry Christmas
My Favorite Things - Stamps - Secret Santa

Sapphire Birthday blue

Today the on Crazy4Challenges Blog. Hostess Karen has issued us this challenge.

 September is my birth month. To start my birthday month celebration, make a birthday card with some dark blue - as my birthstone is the sapphire

I have made my card with designer paper, often in the paper packs there are decorated sentiment pieces that you can cut out.

I used the Rockin Rectangle die to make the card base. The front of the card is clear using a piece of acetate so that you can see the designer panel.


When you open the card the mechanism pops out the panel.


Supplies:
Karen Burniston - Rockin Rectangle pop up 
American Crafts designer paper pack- patio party

Honey bees

Today is challenge 2135 on the CCEE Stampers Blog.

 September is Honey Month. For our challenge this week, include something related to honey on your card – bees, honeycombs, beehives.



My card today has been made purely with designer paper from the DCWV water color garden paper stack.
I made the front of the card a fold back so that the double- sided paper would be highlighted. I then found a little sticker bee and added it to the bee hive.

Farmers Market

This week on Crazy4Challenges we have been asked to create a card with the Farmers Market in mind.


 What’s in season to eat at your farmers market? Make a card inspired by your local harvest. Even if it’s 6 months ago for the Southern Hemisphere. You can but don’t necessarily have to use the actual fruit or veg. You can just use the colours or textures. Like pink and green or pink with black dots for watermelon. Yellow plaid or use a square stencil for corn etc.

I have had this image for awhile but it is a favourite. I stamped the image and coloured it and stencilled the background. I have used the Cherry Lyn step die to create the base card and it has extra dies to cut the designer paper panels.



The designer paper stack had these cute sentiment panels, this one just matched the stamp so well.


Just showing the side view of the step.
