Oddball Eyes

 

Good Morning Crafting Friends

Last month I went to a craft show the first one in a couple of years, it was good to see so many vendors in the one place.

Beccy's Place was there and I picked up a few sets, this set was so goofy I just had to get it.

May is Healthy Vision Month so show us your cards with glasses,

eye charts, any kind of eyeball as the  focal point!


This is just a quick and simple card just using the stamps and coordinating dies.

Coffee anytime

Hello Crafting Friends

Last Month I shared a card for a friends special 60th birthday, needless to say as we are packing up our house in plans for relocation. When it came time to use the card I couldn't find it so here is the hastily made copy, I didn't have the same supplies of paper so I had to change a few things.




Here is the link with the previously shared card, with the listed supplies.

Take care
Maryann

Celebrate the little things

  Hi Crafting Friends,

This week on CCEE Stampers blog our challenge is to use die cuts.

Die Cuts Only - create a card that is created using dies only, no stamps. If you must, you can use a stamp for the sentiment, but bonus points if you use dies.

I have a friend who has a special birthday this month. As she loves her coffee dates, I chose to use Karen Burniston's Coffee cup pop-up for my die set today.

My card is another 5 x 7 card, the size wasn't planned but I did want to show off the designer paper. I made the coffee cup as per instructions, instead of added coffee beans I used the Happy from the Happy Birthday die and the numbers from the numbers set. The lace is a lace sticker from my stash.


On the front of the card I added the die cut sentiment panel from the card pack.

Supplies :

 DCWV designer paper - Navy Florals

Karen Burniston dies: 1040 - Coffee Cop pop-up, 1031 - Numbers, 1030 - Happy Birthday, 1056 - Crosshatch squares

Spring Butterflies

Hi everyone,

It's a brand new month  on the CCEE Stampers blog. Which means our new challenge hostess for the month is Frances

Just like Slimline & Mini Slimline cards, the 5 x 7 inch card size is becoming more and more popular. For this week’s challenge create a 5 x 7 inch card.

I haven't really thought about making 5 x7  cards before, but they are an ideal size for showing off designer paper backgrounds.

I like this bright designer paper is super paper for a spring card, so I added some die cut butterflies for the theme and a die cut sentiment for a fun card.


I added some more die cuts inside to finish the senitment.

Gold Black and White Wedding


Happy Crafting Morning
I made this card for the Challenge on the CCEE Stampers Blog.

February is also National Wedding Month. Make a wedding card to send to a couple who might be tying the knot during this month of love. 


I have used the charm set that I like to use for wedding cards, it is now retired but fits great with Karen Burniston dies. This time I have used the Little Labels pop-up to pop up the charms. I didn't include a wedding sentiment as I thought the card would be suitable for a golden Anniversary.
The front is simple as the inside is the main focus of the card.


Supplies
Karen Burniston dies - 1183 - Little Label pop-up
1184 - Labels Crosshatch
1032 - Happily Ever after
1188 - Wedding Charms ( retired- ECD)
Tonic Studios dies - everyday sentiments

Hi Crafting Friends,

I recently joined a challenge to use scrap paper. This is what I came up with, using a fishtail banner die I made a bunting strip out of scrap paper. I heat embossed the butterfly with black embossing powder and die cut it and coloured it with copic pens. I added a black strip to the top of the bunting and added the gemstones.

Penguin Step Fold card.

Today on the CCEE Stampers blog the Design team are sharing their cards with Penguins.

 It's Penguin Awareness Day.  Put a penguin or two on your card. 

I made this step fold card with my scoring board. The base card folds flat for postage, the front panel is sized to suit the stamp that I have used. I dug through my supplies for a penguin stamp and found this clear stamp from Stampavie. It is never to early to start you stash of Christmas cards. I am not sure if  the stamp set is still available somewhere. The sentiments and banner die is from Lawn Fawn.
