CCEEers Reach to the Moon, Stars, and Beyond


Maryann continues as our CCEE Stampers challenge this week.  Here is her challenge.....

 Another day on the days of the year Calendar is Moon and Space Exploration day, use this theme to inspire your card.

I stayed a bit closer to Earth and went with the moon.  I did masking and sponging to create the sky using my cloud template.  I then stamped the Cornish Heritage Farms tree image and extending its base by sponging black ink.  I layered it, added piercing and a sentiment.

Be sure to go to the CCEE Blog to see the other wordly creations by the rest of the team....most of whom went deeper into space tha I did.

Getting Sketchie with the Crazies



The third challenge of the month is time for a Crazy4Challenges sketch.  Here is my card based on that sketch with a few tweaks.....


I first stamped the water elements (which I extended across the card instead of stopping part way).  I then masked the pink rectangle area and first sponged and then did some final touches with a Copic marker.  I stamped the duckie on a separate piece of cardstock and but it ou, popped it up and then 'floated' it in the water.  Using my Misit I stamped the sentiment several times to make it dark enough.

Now be sure to visit the Crazies Blog to see the fabulous and creative ways the DT used this same sketch to create so many wonderfully varied cards.

CCEEers Have 'Rocks' in Their Heads


Maryann continues as our hostess for July......here is her CCEE Stampers Challenge for this week.....

According to the days of the year Calendar, today is international Rock Day - use the colors of stone ( greys, browns, black, white etc..) for your card.

I used a variety of stamps from Stampscape and Stampenous to create the scene.  I also sponged the ocean and the clouds.  The sentiment is from ????. I then cut the panel in three parts and added some piercing on the top and bottom of the base level.

CCEEers Mask It Up


It is time for another CCEE Stampers Challenge.  Here is Maryann with the challenge......

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another month of  challenges. It's Maryann here and I am your hostess for the month.
Hope you have fun with my challenges.

Create a card using a mask, whether it is using a masking technique of a stamped image of a mask.

I created a one-layer card......always a challenge for me, but something I do like to do.  I masked my rectangular 'panle', sponging on Cool Caribbean ink....I then used Memory Box stencil to add the dots to the background with Bermuda Bay ink.  I then removed the mask and, using my Misti, stamped the Technique Junkies image over and over again to get a truly black image.  I then paper pieced aroung the edges of the card.

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the fab masked creations by the rest of this talented and wonderful DT.

Hi everyone,
