CCEEers Honor Pirates

Well...here we are with the CCEE Stampers' next challenge for the month of September.  Kelly is our hostess and here is her challenge.....


Hello!  Kelly here with this week's challenge ~ Tuesday was "Talk like a Pirate Day!"
Create a card using anything pirate related and extra 'treasure/booty' for using a map
anywhere on the card! 

Somehow I never finished this post.......buut be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see all the pirate themed creations.  I used a Riley stamp for my pirate and a Penny Black (I think) palm tree.  I sponged on the sand and added texture using my old SU set.

CCEEers Are Toald Dahl Inspired


Kelly is our CCEE Stampers Challenge for September.  Here she is with this week's challenge.....

Kelly here with another challenge this week and
 the CCEE Stampers are celebrating Roald Dahl Day!
For challenge #1737,  create a card using any one of his books as your inspiration.
There are so many ~ and as an avid reader, 
I hope you find a way to use them in this week's challenge.

I am a long time Roald Dahl fan.  As a middle school teacher, he was an author I could use to get students interested in personal reading.  Each year I read aloud The Witches to my Reading class.  We had many a good time related to this book.

I used a Hero Arts set for both the images and the sentiment.   I made a designer paper panel to place my sentiment piece on the card.  I added some piercing on the top and bottom of the base panel.

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the other Roald Dahl inspired creations.  I'm sure they will be FABULOUS.....

The Crazies Get Glittery


Time for another Crazy4Challenges weekly challenge.....here is Rebecca's challenge for us....

Welcome back to Crazy 4 Challenges! This is Rebecca, your host for this month. Joining me is our special guest for this month, Teresa Kline! Thank for all your entries for my challenge last week! It's awesome to have your support!

Summer water + sunshine always makes me think of glitter! Let's use lots of glitter on our projects this week! You get brownie points if you use more than one colour or use it in more than one way!

I have weak peepers and therefore do not use glitter....don't need any additional eye problems.  In place of glitter I used glitter paper.  I used an ODBD die for my frame.  I cut the center out with a Spellbinder die.  I then used a flower die from Memory Box to cut out the blooms.  Pretty clean and simple, but in real life, the colors do pop a bit more than in this muddy pic.

Be sure to visit the Crazies Blog to see the glittery creations by the fab members of the DT.

CCEEers Play with the Bears


Happy September.  For the  CCEE Stampers Challenge, Kathy  is our new hostess for the month.  Here is her challenge.
Happy September from the CCEE Stampers!
Kelly here, and I will be the hostess during the month of September.
Saturday (9/9) is Teddy Bear Day ♥
Create a card usnig a bear somewhere on your card for challenge #1736.

I used a Sweet n' Sassy set for both the image and the sentiment.  It is actually a set I have gotten a lot of use from as the animals are sweet and they have matching dies.  I used a die from MFT for my main panel and put that on a bkgd of gingham designer paper.  Pretty CAS.....

Be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the fabulous bear creations by this wonderful team.

Crazy for the Ocean and Sunshine


A new month....a new hostess for the Crazy4Challenges DT......here is Rebecca with her first challenge for September.....

Welcome to all of our fans! It's Rebecca Ednie here, playing hostess this month! I love picking the challenges so I hope you all love what I've chosen!

Please welcome Teresa Kline as our Monthly Guest. I'm sure she would love to have you welcome her on her blog, Paperie Blooms!

I can't let go of summer. Let's make a card or other project using the ocean or beach as inspiration. Shells to sea horses, boats to bat-wing rays, mermaids to minnows, whales to walruses, dolphins to dories (or Dorys), even nautical narwhals; it all works!
Well....anybody who knows me, also knows this was an easy one for me as my happy place is near the ocean. I created my scene by sponging the ocean and the sky.  I then took a sun die and trimmed the rays of the sun from the outer edges on three sides...I then added the sentiment which I think goes perfectly with the scene.

Be sure to stop in at the Crazies Blog to see the sea/beach/shell/ related cards created by the Crazies DT.  We would love for you to play along as well......

CCEEers Stick to One Color


Anne Harmon is back as the August hostess with the mostest for the CCEE Stampers Challenge.  Here is her challenge for us this week.......

I once hostessed a challenge on SCS, asking our fellow crafters to make a one color card, and using only die cuts (you can also use punches).  The results were wonderful.  Let's do that again!

I am still using virgin supplies in my stamp cave....and probably could do so for at least a year or two....lol!!!  When I was out of commission due to surgery, somehow I could still be tempted to buy, buy, buy........!!!  Today I used a die by Creative Expressions (Sue Wilson).  I added a scribbled die cut flower and leaf (my only cheat.....) which are from Ellen Hutson.  This card will probably go to my gift card stash I am building up for birthdays and holidays.

Be sure to check out the monochromatic cards created by this wonderful DT at the CCEE Blog.
