Honey Bear

Welcome to today's challenge is with the CCEE stampers team.

Apparently September is Honey Month, so for our challenge this week use this as your inspiration…. Honey, bees, bears, even stamp companies that have honey in their name!

 I decided to make a shadow box card using Lawn Fawn dies and the Park add on, along with the Butterfly kisses stamp set. I used the acorn is the die set to create a bee hive and added a random bee from my stamp supplies.

Stay Sharp

Welcome to today's challenge card that I have made for the Crazy 4 Challenge theme. 
Our challenges this month are brought to us by Frances. 
This week it’s all about Color Blocking …. Incorporate this technique onto your card using cardstock.



I had this image coloured and used cardstock to match for my card. I even pulled out an old spellbinders die to create the background panel. I liked the sentiment but couldn't fit it on the front so I used it inside.

Magical Ponies

Welcome to a new month of challenges with the CCEE Stampers team, Frances is our hostess.

Apparently the 3rd September was Skyscraper Day. For our challenge this week let’s make tall cards.

My inspiration for this card is the many different ones I have seen on pinterest.
I love the shades of distress oxides to great clouds in the colours of the rainbow.
I fussy cut out the ponies and foam mounted them to the card. I also added nuvo drops to the manes and a few drops around the card for some added magic.

Happy House Warming

Today I am sharing my card for the Crazy 4 Challenges theme.

Shape Up - Shaped cards are so much fun and with dies these days can be so easy to create … so for our challenge this week create a shaped card.


For my card I have used the Lawn Fawn Mushroom house die. It is rather small so it is a gift tag card for a housewarming gift.
 I didn't have any small fairy images so I have your the girl elf from the Holiday helpers set.




Here is a peek inside.

Beyond Blue

Our challenge for this week on CCEE Stampers blog is to - Make a card or project that encourages someone, and send it!

To make my card I have used the stamp and stencil set that were free in the Simply cards & papercraft magazine issue 186.

They are samples from Ranger and feature designers Dina Wakley , Letterit and dylusions.
I have used Tim Holtz distress oxide inks.



My card is for someone who suffers anxiety and depression, in the lead up to R U OK day, to let them know that they are not alone.

Swing side to side baby


My card today is made for a challenge that I do with friends, so that we use our supplies each month. This month our challenge was to make a swing card.
I have used the My Favorite Things interactive swing die for my swing element and added the Gerda Steiner designs stamp set Hello Little one. 


When you tilt the card the baby swings side to side.

The other day I shared an engagement card, well today I have another one. Yes my daughter is engaged, but a big surprise two weeks later so is her sister.......

So while I had out my supplies I created another card this one is just a little bit different, using most of the same Karen Burniston dies.





Next year will be a busy year with two weddings to plan. Luckily then will be a few months apart.

Cut up stamping techinque

Today is challenge day with the Crazy 4 Challenges team. Our challenge is to revisit Cut up staming technique.
This isn't a new technique and I have done it many times in the past in various ways.
However Jennifer McGuire shared this fun technique a few months ago, so I thought it would
be fun to revisit this technique. So for our challenge this week create a card for our challenge today
using this technique.

Love in a fancy fold

This week on the CCEE Stampers blog our challenge is to create a card with fancy folds. I needed a card to celebrate my daughter's engagement.
My favourite fancy fold cards are dies from Karen Burniston. To make the centre pop up I have used the Heart Pivot panel die and the twist panel pop-up die. I have also used the wedding charms (retired) as added embellishments.
