CCEE2038 Shake


Hi Crafting Friends,
It is time to join in the challenge with the CCEE Stampers blog design team.

Apparently September is "Shake Month" which is a day to celebrate all things Milkshakes! 
One of the very first interactive cards Frances created when she first started stamping over 30 years ago was a shaker card, so for a our challenge this week, let's incorporate some sort of shaker element on your card. Bonus points if you include a milkshake!



I started making the shaker card by die cutting the window and added the acetate, before adding the sequins and glue it to the card base. I added the flamingos to match the designer paper.

Slimline Eclipse

Today is challenge day with CCEE Stampers blog designer team.

  Slimline Cards seem to be very popular at present, especially with a few companies have been releasing dies especially for the use of creating this style of card. I know I have become addicted to this style of card las have a few of my friends. So much so that I created a Facebook Group dedicated to Slimline Cards called Slimline Card Addicts.

  For our challenge this week create a Slimline card. The most popular sizes for Slimline Cards are either  8 ½ inches x 3 ½ inches or 4 inches x 9 inches and should fit into a standard business sized envelope.


For my card today I have used a panel of designer paper, cut to size with slimline dies. I have used the eclipse technique for my sentiment.

Life is just Peachy

This is my card for the CCEE Stampers blog challenge Peach. I went and dived into my older stamps and found this Penny Black/Mo Manning image from a few years ago.

Liz is hosting her last challenge for August today and  perhaps you did not realize August is Peach Month, and peach is also Liz's favorite color. So on your cards this week use the color peach or perhaps even a peach image or peach pie! Yummy!

Timeless Owl

Hi Crafting friends 

This week on Crazy4Challenges blog, we have been asked to make a card with a collage theme.

Make a background from various different paper

elements or use a paper that already looks like a collage.


My colour scheme was inspired by the designer paper. I chose the timepiece die pieces to match the owl and carried the theme into the inside of the card.

Go Wild little Monkey


This week on the CCEE Stampers blog we have been asked to honour National Zookeepers Day by creating a card with a zoo animal on it.


I have used the Karen Burniston's Paper frames pop up die from the April 20202 release for the center of my card. I have teamed it with the palm tree from the palm tree pop up die set and Jinx the Monkey and sentiment stamp set from her Elizabeth Craft Design days.
The front is just a simple lead into the main focal point inside.

Picnic Invitation

Today I am playing along with the CCEE Stampers blog design team, for this week's challenge card.

July 15th was National Hot Dog Day.  Make a card using something you would have at a picnic -- a hot dog, a hamburger, a checkered tablecloth, or maybe some ants!

I don't think ants receive an invitation but it certainly would't be a picnic without them.

 I have used some Lawn Fawn Slimline dies for my card base. I have used Stampendous stamps, that I have had for awhile, for my main image. Quick and easy stamp, colour and sponge in the clouds, layer and the card is finished.

Summer Fun

Hi Crafting Friends,

I have a fun interactive card today using the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel.
I made this card for the Crazy4Challenges design team challenge.

It’s the peak of summer in the North Hemisphere so let’s make a card or project inspired by your favorite summer activity. Beach, pool, travel, picnics, biking, hiking, sports, flying kites? What ever you love to do that makes summer fun.

 

 

 I die cut the reveal wheel and before assembling I coloured the pieces with distress oxide inks and stamped the sentiments. Once assembled I added the waves and the girl from the MFT - drink up the sunshine stamp set

Space Riding

Hi Crafting Friends

I have this interactive card today for the Challenge with the CCEE Stampers blog design team.

Today is World UFO Day. Make a card with something from space – the sun, the moon, a planet, a UFO, a rocket ship. Or, create a galaxy background for your card.


I have used dies from Karen Burniston to make my card. On the front I used the space charms and sentiment die sets. For the inside I use the Rocket pop up die set.
