Full of sparkle


Welcome to this weeks challenge with the CCEE Stampers team.

Saturday the 24th was Fairy Day.... So let's include fairy on your card this week


Several weeks ago a friend told me to keep a look out for a copy of Parpercraft Essentials magazine at the newsagent, which included a free set of stamps/embossing folder called Fairy Wishes. As you can see I found the magazine. I also used distress ink for my background, I really like the look of this background colours. After sponging on the colours I used my misti to place the stamps with black ink I then embossed the dandelion flower and highlighted the embossed areas with black pen.

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
