Under the sea

Welcome to this weeks CCEE Stampers Challenge.

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



When I was searching for some inspiration for this card, I came across this background  that I had made awhile ago, using a double embossing technique. The stamped images are from a long ago company called PSX but I am sure there are now various other stamps that would suit this technique.

1. Start with a rectangle of white card stock.
2. Stamp and heat emboss the black fish
3. Sponge the background with ink to create a pattern.
4. Add other stamped images and gently wipe the ink off the embossed fish you want them clean.
5. Cover the whole card with a anti-static pillow, then cover the entire card with embossing ink and clear powder.
6. Heat the card, you will see as you heat the top layer, the previous fish will also melt and look like they come up to the surface.
7. Complete your card, I have used various dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs

3 times the fun

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazies team.

Today is Repeat Day. On your creations this week, you are to repeat some part of your design at least three times. It could mean three same size circles, three of the same flowers...three of something on your card.


For my card I chose this little house mouse juggling the 3 dice. I chose to to add 3 sets of dice down each side. After I completed this card I noticed that the total number of dice could be divided by 3. Not that important just a bit of trivia.  LOL



Supplies: Stampendous House Mouse, Elizabeth Craft Designs Oval Pull card die, Kaisercraft designer paper and sentiment, Handprint art stamps dice.

Emerald Faries




Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazy 4 challenge team.

The gem stone for May is the emerald. Use some shade of green on your card—bonus points if it’s emerald green.

I have used Distressed inks to create my background, for this card, sponging several layers of ink, with a mist of water in between the layers. I have use Lavinia fairy stamps for this scene. The sentiment is from a clear Kaisercraft set.

Wildflowers in the sunset sky

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to another challenge with the CCEE Stampers Team.

  The second week in May is Wildflower Week.  Let's include some flowers on our cards today.


I created my background with distress inks, ripe persimmon, picked raspberry, dried marigold,mustard seed and a brayer. And stamped images from an Indigo Blue set that was free in a magazine some time ago.Then die cut it with the Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched rectangles and layered it on to card stock.

Fairy Dreams


Welcome to another Month of Challenges with the CCEE team, this month Lois is our hostess.

 I found a weird celebration to start off the month.  May 4th is National Candied Orange Peel Day.  To celebrate, let's include the color ORANGE (which just happens to be one of my favorites!) on our cards.


I chose to play with some distressed inks, orange, yellow, pink and purple to create my background. All images are from the Lavinia stamp range.

Tea Cake


Welcome to this weeks challenge with the Crazies from Crazy fro Challenges.


Yesterday was Tea Day … so for our challenge this week let's incorporate something Tea related on our cards …. Not into tea then what about coffee!

What is a cuppa without something sweet to go with it?
This stamp from Stampendous with the tea cup and and cupcake, just looks the treat for this challenge.


The card flat for posting.


On the inside I have used this doily designer paper to showcase this tea set die from cottage cuts.


It is just simply a few scored fold lines to create an easel card. The top of the coffee pot is mounted on foam tape to act as a stop for the easel.
