Crazy for Numbers


After being MIA for a bit, I am back to share my entry for this week's Crazy4Challenges cards.....here is our hostess with the week's challenge.....

Hi everyone,

Raquel with you again this week with another challenge.

September is my son's birthday month, so I challenged the Crazy 4 Challenges team to make a birthday card and put numbers on it.  Let's see what the design team came up with
I used a bold sentiment from MFT on a panel cut with a Cottage Cutz die.  I used assorted designer papers aloong with some skeleton leaves dies.  I added a few brads, and.....voila.....a masculine card was born.

Be sure to to visit the Crazies Blog to see how the rest of the DT used numbers on their creations.

Babies 'R Us by the CCEEers



It is a dreary day and my pic is muddy....sorry about that.

It is time for another CCEE Stampers Challenge and here is our hostess with this week's challenge.....

Welcome friends, it is Maryann here with another challenge.

 Create a card using baby as your inspiration, example: new baby, baby shower, grand baby, baby animals or even just a baby sized card.

I used a stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps along withh a die from Cottage Cutz.  I added some gingham designer paper.  I could not find my 'Welcome Little One' stamp so I will be addiing the sentiment when I find it.

Be sure to stop by the CCEE Blog to see the baby inspired cards by the rest of this fabulous team.

Crazies Give Thanks


Raquel Mason is the hostess for September with the Crazy4Challenges DT.  Here is her challenge for this week....

It's grandparents day tomorrow, so I've challenged the Crazy 4 Challenges team members to make a card to show someone you love or appreciate them for what they do for you. 

As you can see, I went very CAS for this week.  I just have not had much stamping time.  I added a touch of paper piecing around the base.

Crazy for Techniques


IIt is time for another month of challenges for the Crazy4Challenges DT..  Here iis this week's challenge from Raquel........

Hello my crazies, it's Raquel Mason here for the month of September.  I would like to introduce the very talented Fran Sabad as guest designer.

For today's challenge, we're making cards using any technique!  The technique can be something you've never tried before, something you've tried many times, or even a technique that you're inspired to try.

 I went with some simple techniques that I use often.  I used masking, stenciling, sponging, and paper piercing.....all to creat a true one layer card   The flower is a stamp by Penny Black.  The sentiment is from either MFT or Sweet 'n Sassy.

Be sure to check out the Crazies Blog to see the techniques used by the DT.

CCEEers Play with Flowers


This is the last challenge for August, and Frances has a great challenge for the CCEE Stampers Challenge team.  Here it is.......

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's Frances here once again to bring you the last challenge for August.

In my part of the world (Australia), Saturday is the first day of Spring .... Flowers are beautiful at any time of the year so for our challenge this week we are to add some flowers to our card.

Unfortunately we have had the need for sympathy cards so my stash is nonexistent at the moment, so this CAS one will be the beginning of a new stash of sympathy cards.  I used a background stamp by Penny Black and a sentiment stamp from MFT.

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the gardens of flowersof all colors and types used by the DT on their fabulous cards.

CCEEers Ride the Wind


Frances is the hostess of the CCEE Stampers Challenge for August.  She has a great challenge this week, and here it is.....



Hi Crafty Friends

It's Frances here again with another fun challenge for you all.

Today (23rd August) is Ride the Wind Day, this day was created to celebrate the anniversary of the first man powered flight. There are so many things that rely on wind for them to work, so let's include something that needs wind on our cards today. Some examples include kite flying, windsurfing, Hang Gliding; Sailing Boats, Birds Flying, Hot Air Balloons, Balloons, Paper Planes etc.

 I did not have much stamping time, so I didn't do any....lol.....instead I made a CAS card using a die from Tutti Designs.  Not much else to say......

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the more detailed work by the best DT in my book.

CCEEers Visit the Jungle


Frances continues as the CCEE Challenge hostess this week.....here is her challenge for this week.....

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's Frances here with this week's challenge.



Apparently Tomorrow is World Lion Day .... Lions are also often referred to as the "King of the Jungle" so lets see some jungle animals appearing on our cards this week … bonus points if you include a lion.

I used an unmounted stamp for this card.  I apologize that I did not write the company name on the back so I could share the maker of the stamp.  If someone knows, share that info with me please.  I sponged the background, used my Misti to stamp the image in deep black, then added a thin frame of black cardstock.  I then covered the front of the base card with black and white dp for a tropical look.

Be sure to visit the CCEE blog to see the various jungle creatures the team used in their designs.
