June Bride

For this weeks CCEE Stampers Challenge Liz shared a memory from her past, A June Bride feature segment in the local paper. Our Challenge was to create a card featuring a bridal couple or a wedding cake.
Liz didn't know but this challenge was extra special for me, as I was a June Bride. Two days ago we  celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary.

For my card I have used all dies, a couple of them were new purchases at the last craft show.
Spellbinders - floral oval
Tattered Lace - Couple
Crafter's Companion - Edge'ables congratulations
Ultimate Crafts - Australiana collection ironbark branch

You can find all the other team members creations on the CCEE Stampers Blog

Everythings coming up Roses

The flower for June is the rose. There are so many varieties and colors in roses. So, Liz's challenge to you for this week is to make a card or project that makes use of a rose or a bouquet of roses. Come join us in the rose garden this week and share your creations on our CCEE Stampers link.

For my card I have used a new die from Little B designer dies. The front panel was die cut in black card, the bottom of the die also has an embossed panel. I have used the micro fine glitter technique and copic pens to colour in theses flowers.

Brewed Beer

My Daughter works in a craft beer brew house and one of the customers bought in his sample brew for them to try after work. This is the thank you card we designed together, I know exactly how I wanted the inside of the card to look like but the front was another matter. With Kait's great photoshop skills she created some panels for the card front.
 I have used the Karen Bruniston designed pop n cut coffee mug (from when Karen designed for Sizzix. Karen now designs for Elizabeth craft designs) and changed it into a Beer Mug.

After cutting the mug in brown card I then die cut a mug out of acetate and embossed and attached it to the card. Then cut another mug out of designer paper removing the mug and used the rest of it for a backing sheet.  The foaming bubbles and the sentiment panel were cut with Elizabeth craft design dies.

words- rub ons, acetate, distressed inks. designer paper

Rolling into the season

Hi, It is challenge day with my CCEE Stamper friends.
 Our June hostess Liz says "Summer seems to just be "rolling" right in. This week is going to be a technique challenge to use a brayer. You can google "stamping techniques using brayers" to get some fabulous ideas to try. If you don't have a brayer, try some other things that can roll on ink or paint! Be creative and have fun!"
Well it is certainly not rolling into Summer here in Australia but into Winter. I live it what is called the sunshine state as it mostly warm and sunny but this first week has seen our morning temperatures drop to 1ºC= 33.80000ºF  we never see snow but there has been some falls in the southern states.

For my card I had to dust off the brayer. It was nice to pull out a tool that I used to use a lot. I also dusted off all the other items to make this card. To make the background I used the brayer with Kaleidacolor dye ink on semi-gloss photo paper. And used some wood mounted Stampscapes rubber stamps to create this early morning scene. Making it into a birthday card with the Happy Birthday stamp.
