Going RED with the CCEEers



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

This is Anne with my second challenge.  My birthday is in two days.  Make me happy by using some RED on  your card!

I used a single stamp from ODBD as my image.  I used a Cottage Cutz die to cut my oval main panel, while using a Lil Inker background die to create the back patter.

Be suure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the fab RED creations by the rest of the team, honoring Anne's birthday.

CCEEers Enjoy May Flowers


Today it is time for another CCEE Stampers Challenge.  Anne is our hostess for May and here is her challenge for us this week....
.
 This is Anne Harmon.  I am your hostess for the month of May.  Since April showers bring May flowers, my first challenge is to fill your card with pretty flowers.
.
I used a set by Waltzingmouse Stamps for the greenery.  I then used an Altenew set for the rose image.  The sentiment is from a biirthday set (I think it is by MFT...but not sure).  The die I used to cut the main panel is by ODBD.

Can;t wait to see the floral creations inspired by this challenge/?????  Stop in at the CCEE Blog..

The Crazies 'On Thin Ice'


Time for another Crazy4Challenges challenge.....and here it is.....

Hi Everyone,
It is Maryann here with this month's last challenge. Firstly I would like to thank Kelly Santi for joining as guest designer. I hope you have been having fun with our challenges.


This week my challenge is a play on words - Create a card using these words for inspiration "Skating on thin ice"

 I went with a pretty literal used of the phrase with my penguins on think ice.  Now I have another card for the holiday stash.  This set is by Mama Elephant.  I used a frame die from MFT and a snowflake embossing folder.

Sorry about the muddy picture....it is crisp and white in real life.

Be sure to visit the Crazies Blog to see the other interpretations of 'skating on thin ice'.

CCEEers Inspired by Poetry



Lois has an inspiration challenge for the CCEEers this week.....and here it is.....

Lois here with my final challenge of the month.  April is National Poetry Month, and today is Poem in Your Pocket Day.  I'm asking that you create a card using a poem as your inspiration. 

I used Joyce Kilner's poem, Trees' as my inspiration.  In grammar school we had to memorize poems and this was one of the poems we learned.  Unfortunately I only remember the first few lines now.  My second choice would have been e.e. cummings 'in Just spring', another favorite poem.

I used this tree stamp ( I think it is by Penny Black) along with the sentiment from MFT.  I also used an oval die from Cottage Cutz.

The CCEEers Take a Ride on a Bike



It is time for the Third challenge of April for the CCEE Stampers Challenge DT.  Here is Lois, our hostess, with her weekly challenge.

Lois here . . . continuing as hostess for the CCEE Stampers.  Today is Bicycle Day, so I'm asking you to put a bicycle on your card.  If you don't have a bicycle, use anything with wheels.  I have a confession to make:  I didn't learn how to ride a bicycle until I was an adult.  My husband taught me!

I used a die from Joanna Sheen for my bicycle/tricycle (only two wheels are showing...lol)!!!  What you probably can't see is that I used a birthday sentiment stamp from MFT with versamark in the background of the main panel.  It might be my weak eyes, but I don't really see it in the picture.

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the wheeled creations by the rest of this fabulous DT.

Time for another Crazy4Challenges challenge......and here it is......

Hi Everyone,

It is time for another crazy challenge. Maybe with a hit of Caffeine in there as well.

Perfect blend - Create a card with coffee for inspiration in the form of colors, stamps or dies.

I used a stamp set by Altenew for the images and the sentiment.  I used a die for the mail panel from Cottage Gutz and added some paper piercing in the upper corners.

CCEEers Create with Critters


It iis time for another CCEE Stampers Challenge.  Lois is our hostess for March, and here is her challenge for this week.

Lois here, continuing as hostess for the CCEE Stampers this month.  There are many lists of "holidays" on the internet.  One of them listed yesterday (April 11th) as National Pet Day.  I asked the team to use a pet (dog, cat, bird, whatever) on their cards.

I have once again been trying to use 'virgin' stamps.  So many toys and so little time.  The iages come from a Stampendous set by Laurel Burch.  The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I used a cloud template from MFT as well as dies that match the images.

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