Fairy Day with the CCEE

Frances shares with us her last CCEE Stampers Challenge for June.  Here it is.....

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our CCEE challenge blog. Frances here again with my last challenge for the month.

Saturday the 24th was Fairy Day …. So let's include fairies on our card this week

I used a fairy die from Joanna Sheen along with a sentiment from MFT Stamps.  I sponged the background using a stencil and distress inks.  This was a really easy card to create.

Frances is our hostess for the CCEE Stampers Challenge this month.  Here is her challenge for this week......

Hi everyone, 

Frances here again as your challenge hostess. 

Today is World Ocean Day, so the challenge this week is to create a card that reminds you of something related to the ocean.

I am late to the party, but really wanted to play as i love and collect stamps/images having to do with the ocean.  This was a virgin C.C. Designs stamp which I did some simple coloring of.  I added a sentiment, rounded the corners and that was that..

Crazies Repeat

Hello.....Welcome to the Crazy4Challenges challenge.  It is the first week of June, so the hostess duties fall to me, Joanne.  Here is our first challenge for June.

Today is Repeat Day. On your creations this week, you are to repeat some part of your design at least three times. This could mean three same sized circles, three of the same flower.......three of something on your card.  Can't wait to see what you create!!!

I went CAS this week.  I used a stamp set from Altenew for my 'blobs' and sentiment.  The blobs and the brads are my repeats for the challenge.  I used a Spellbinder die for the image panel and dry embossed the base of the  card.

As this is our first challenge for June, we have a new hostess, Frances.  Here is her challenge for this week.....

Hi everyone,

It's Frances here, and it is my turn to host the challenges this month.

Apparently the 2nd of June is Doughnut Day so for our challenge today create something that had some type of "hole" in it. It could be a doughnut, cheese, fancy fold card with a hole … anything.

I used a stamp and die set from Memory Box to create this CAS card.  I used a sentiment from Penny Black to finish it off.

Be sure to stop by the CCEE Blog to see the hole-y projects by this wonderful DT...I am sure you will enjoy stopping by.
