In my thoughts

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

Today is Cancer Awareness Day! You can make a support card for someone who is
currently fighting cancer, or a card of cheer for someone who has won his or her
battle!


For my card today I used the Altenew  In my thoughts stamp set. Along with various Elizabeth Craft Designs dies to make and easel card.
The circle card fits perfectly into a square envelope.

Have a ball

Welcome to today's challenge with the CCEE Team.

This week Hostess Joanne has said "As you all know, I love my two pups. They are both rescue pups from Tennessee. Well, October is Adopt a Shelter Dog mont.h. Let’s create cards with dogs on them."




Our little dog loves to chase the ball, so I thought it would be fun to create a interactive card with this in mind. I was't sure how I was going to make the dog run after the ball without spinning so I made the ball as the movable element. If I try this again I think I will make the grass element larger so I can add a bigger spinner behind to make the dog run after the ball. I think you get the idea anyway, it is fun to tilt the card and have the ball move on its own.

Lets get festive

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazy 4 Challenges team.

Today is World Card Making Day! So make a card! It can be any shape and any theme you want to make.


Since I could make any themed card for this challenge I chose to make a Christmas card. This one is using stamps from an Australian company Beccy's Place. This set is called Emu Parade, she has some cute digital stamp images but I love the photo polymer ones.
For the inside of the card I used Karen Burniston's cupcake pop-up as the generic platform. I also used the nature edges to showcase some of the designer paper that has some printed words that worked well with the theme.

Mythical Creatures

Welcome to this week CCEE stampers challenge. This month Joanne is our hostess.

This week we are going to make Halloween cards with nontraditional Halloween colors. If you don’t celebrate Halloween, do the same for Thanksgiving cards.


Since I don't celebrate Halloween or Thanksgiving, I went with a Mythical Creature theme. I created my background using various Distress Oxide inks. Once it was dried I stamped the spiral of spell stamp with versamark ink and heat embossed with seafoam white powder. When that cooled I then did the same with the flower fairy stamp and black embossing powder. I then created a watermark using the moon pods stamp and the versamark ink.

Autumn Happiness

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

It’s now fall and I know this because I see it on my calendar even though you wouldn’t know it in Florida. Let’s put leaves, or trees with beautiful fall colors, or anything that says fall to you on our cards this  week.


                  

I found this cute little dragon in my supplies, it is rubber so I have had him for awhile, but I thought he would look good on a reveal wheel card from Lawn Fawn as they had a leaf window too. I chose not to use any sentiments on my card yet as it is not fall for me but spring. I just coloured the inside of the wheel is shades of Autumn/fall leaves, so you card reveal which season you wanted.

You are awesome

Welcome to this week challenge on CCEE Stampers.

Set back stamping - I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's set back stamping tutorial, using stamps and dies, something different to the normal layering that should be fun trying.


For my card I used the Altenew build a flower Magnolia stamp and die sets along with Altenew ink cubes.

FGM interactive card

My card for today is for the challenge that I do with some friends. Each month we challenge ourselves to use our supplies. This month our challenge is to create an interactive card. This month I chose to use dies from my favourite interactive die designer Karen Burniston. I have followed Karen over the years, when she has designed for other companies, she now has her own and this is the first time I have used the Charm accordion die set.



I decided to make this a four page booklet, to show case the flower images from the Australian company Uniquely creative. The set is called sweet succulents photopolomyer stamp.


I used a black glaze pen to make the hinges look like they have metal fastenings.


The four pages fold flat for posting.

Flamazing 60th Birthday

Welcome to another challenge with the Crazy 4 challenges team.

Make a birthday card and put numbers on it. For example -the recipients age, use background paper with numbers on it, or even a numbered candle die cut if you have one.



Well this challenge was perfect timing for me as I needed a card for my work colleague who was celebrating a big zero birthday. She absolutely loves flamingos, I have been saving the designer paper for such occasion and when Karen Burniston came out with the flamingo charm I knew it was a must have die set. I have also use Karen's Circle charm pop-up dies and since the numbers and word dies are still on my Karen Burniston's wish list, I just used what I had that would fit. MFT- numbers and sentiment and fishtail banner die, Sue Wilson creative espression Happy Bithday die.

Baby Tag Book

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the CCEE Stampers team.

Baby - Create a card using baby as your inspiration, example: new baby, baby shower, grand baby, baby animals or even just a baby sized card.

For my card I have used the picket fence Jungle babies stamp set.



For the inside of my card I used Karen Burniston's Tag Book Pop-up die set. Instead of making a tag book, I added it to the inside of a card. I have seen a few of the design team use this technique for their cards so I thought I would give it a try.


I love the way this has turned out, an unexpected surprise when you open the card.


Here is the side view of the center pop up tag.

Wedding charms

Welcome to the September Sketch challenge with the Crazies team from Crazy 4 Challenge blog.


I was asked to make a floral wedding card, that is great about sketches you can use them to make cards for any theme. 
I found this pretty paper in a designer paper pack and used that for my theme, I first used the stencil with embossing ink and white embossing powder for some texture. My bride and groom are die cut charm pieces from when Karen Burniston designed for Elizabeth craft designs, but my circles are from her circle charm pop- up set. 



Supplies:
ECD - KB wedding charms (retired) KB Best wishes stamps (retired)
Karen Burniston - circle charm pop-up dies
MFT - Stitched fishtails, ECD - congratulations die
Kaisercraft - stencil, versamark ink, seafoam embossing powder.
