CCEE1535 bows



Frances is again bringing you her last challenge for the month.

Apparently tomorrow is Bow Tie Day, so for our challenge this week let's include some sort of bow on our cards this week … it doesn't have to be a Bow Tie as long as it is a bow.


Please join us and link your card up using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post. If you upload to another site such as Splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1535 to your keywords.

Now let's  check out the cards our Design Team created for us this week.


I got a little wild and crazy with my creativity this week. I had a die to cut the bow, so I just hand cut all the rest of this card to come up with this little chef. The sentiment is from a retired Satmpin' Up set. His bugged eyes were made with white brads and I colored the black part with a sharpie!!  Tie one on with us and have as much fun as I did!!  Then link it over on the CCEEStampers blog here.

CCEE1533



Hi all,

 Frances is again bringing us another fun challenge. 

She says:
"This week we are creating Screen Divider Card - I have been meaning to make one of these style cards for some time now … so let us create one for today's challenge. Here is the link to the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers

Please join us and link your card up using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post. If you upload to another site such as Splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1533 to your keywords.

I made mine rather simple using some old Florishes images of a tulip and sweetpea. The scriputer stamp is from Stampablities (I think). The images were colored with Copic markers. I used a diecute to cutout the bottom.

CCEE1532


Frances is our new hostess for August. In honor of National Golf  Month, she has asked us to create a card that features some sort of sport, but of course, there are bonus points for a golf theme.  She also requested use of green somewhere on your card.


Come join in on the fun and link it to the CCEE Stampers blog linky found here. While you are there, check out the sporty cards made by the other team members.

I used kraft paper, Graphics 45 design paper, used a seasoned stamp from my collection and added the golf flag (my added green) and used my Itty Bitty stamp to make my green grass and also the speckles on the golf ball.

You may or may not know that July 31 is the day that both Harry Potter and his creator, J. K. Rowling celebrate their birthdays. Today the challenge is to create a card or project that honors the remarkable literary character, Harry Potter.

I've not read any of the Harry Potter books, but did a little research on the books and when I saw "flying keys" I was inspired to do this card.

Just Add Ink #272


This multilayered butterfly is a stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps. The fern is from a retired Stampin' Up set, and the sentiment is from Verve. This card is made for the Just Add Ink Challenge #272.  The minute I saw the challenge was to stamp a butterfly, I could not resist the challenge!

Lynn is again our hostess and her challenge to us was to use the watercolor bokeh method.  I used this sentiment from Our Daily Bread to be the focal point of this card and added a few sequins and pearls and added this diecut border.

Hope you join us on this fun technique this week and link it over on the CCEEStampers blog.
