The CCEEers Create a Garden of Loveliness


Joanne here with your CCEE Stampers Challenge for this week.....


Around here spring came late, so we are still enjoying the blooming of flowers.  Please create a card with multiple flowers.

Can't wait to see the floral creations.  Please play along with us. 

I used a tulip stamp by Stampendous.  I love a bouquet of multicolore tulips so that is what I went with.  I added paper piercing around the edges of the main panel and a get well sentiment.

Be sure to stop in at the CCEE Blog to see a virtual garden of flowers.

Crazies Go Masculine



Frances contiinues as our June hostess of the Crazy4Challenges DT.  Here is this week's challenge....

Welcome to another Crazy 4 Challenge challenge.  

This week our challenge is ..... Masculine Cards – Father’s Day is coming up in the Northern Hemisphere, so this week let’s make male cards. It does not have to be a Father’s Day card.

I used my last masculine sympathy card recently so I thought I would use this challenge to rstart replenishing my stash.  I used a stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps along with a sentiment from, I think, MFT.  I added some paper piercing and fabulous plaid dp.

Be sure to stop in at the Crazies Blog to see some fine examples of masculine cards.

CCEEers Use Virgin Stamps


Well.....here I am with the first June Challenge for the CCEE Stampers Challenge....and here it is....

I don’t think  I am the only one with unused (or ‘virgin’) stamps.  This week I want you to go through your stash and ink those virgins to create this week’s card. 

My unused stamp is accompanied by an unused die as well.  The set is by Spellbinders, and I have had it for at least a year.  I used a Lil Inker background die for my base lever and a ODBD die for the sentiment panel.  I added some tiny star rhinestones to the upper corner of the sentiment panel to balance the design in my mind.

We really should have this challenge on a regular basis so I can untilize some the virgin stamps I just jad to have but have never used.

Be sure to go to the CCEE Blog to be inspired to use your virgin stamps.

Crazies Go Barefoot


Frances is our June hostess for the Crazy4Challenges DT challenges.  here is her weekly challenge....

Apparently yesterday was "Go Barefoot Day" include something on your card that is barefoot.

 I could not find the stamp I planned to use which would have been so perfect for this challenge.  Apparently I filed it in the wrong place.  So then Ii had to search for a barefoot image.  Well.....that was not so easy, but finally I found this unmounted stamp.  The sentiment I used is from MFT.

Sorry too for the muddy picture....having some photography issues lately.

Be sure to stop in at the Crazies Blog to see the other barefooted creations.

jCCEEers Emboss Away


This is the last weekly challenge for the CCEE Stampers Challenge for the month of May.  Anne, our May hostess, has given up this challenge.......

For my last challenge of the month, use your embossing folder/s on your card today.

I used two embossing folders.  The first was a frame embossing folder while the second was a floral one.  I took my picture from the side in the hopes that you can see the effects of both folders.  I added the horizontal sentiment panel with using a stamp from Lown Fawn.

Be sure to stop in at the CCEE Blog to see the fab work using embossing folders.  I am sure they will inspire you to play along with us.
