All you need is Love

This week on Crazy 4 Challenges, Karen Aicken is our Hostess hostess  and this is her challenge for the week:  "Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Make your project reflect love or appreciation. Make a Valentine, Anniversary, Thinking of You or card showing support."

Valentine themed cards always seem to have flowers and a female theme, when I saw this stamp set from Your Next Stamp, I knew I wanted to make a male card. I also used the coffee stains stamp set from Kaisercraft and some aztec themed washi tape.
I heat embossed the sentiment and coffee cups for dimension and popped one cup up with foam tape.

Love

Hello friends!
Welcome to CCEE Stampers challenge, Kelly has issued the challenge this week.

  It's almost Valentine's Day, so this week, instead of making  a traditional Valentine's Day card,
we're making cards showing something we love ♥

I love Karen Burniston designs, since I started following Karen, she has worked with different companies so I have used die sets from each, Sizzix, Elizabeth Craft Designs and her own Label Karen Burniston.


 My base card is made with the Sizzix Card square w/ornate edge pop up, Pop n cuts insert, Love set.
The flowers and leaves are from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Flower Pot pot stand set. The labels and small blue hearts are from the current Katherine Label pop- up set.
I also added Nuvo drops for flourishes and flower centers. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things set - Flamazing

Chocolate just for you


Welcome to this month's first challenge on Crazy 4 Challenges, our hostess is Karen  and her guest designer is Kristine Reynolds.

Add a heart to your project this week. You can make a Valentine, put a little heart on a critter, make a heart shaped card - just show us a heart!


Chocolates on Valentine's day makes the heart happy.
This Art Impression image is so much fun.


I made my background of hearts by creating a stencil out of a old x-ray film with the background die, which I then applied distress ink using the sponging tool. The x-ray film is very sturdy and easy to clean and able to be reused several times.

Sassy ol' gal

This week on CCEE Stampers blog Kelly has issued the challenge.

Today is National Spunky Old Broads Day!
So, we're making a card using any spunky old gal(s), and I'm sure it will make you smile to see this card line up!



For my card I could't go pass the Art Impressions shake your booty. It has a front and back image which is perfect to use with this pull card die. I added the spring behind the booty so when you open the card it wobbles for a bit on fun. Added the die cut flowers and some Novo drops as embellishments.


Supplies:
Art Impressions - Shake your Booty & random sentiments
Karen Burniston - Rectangle pull card and flowers from the Flower pot pop up ( both retired)
wobble sping, copic pens, distress inks and Nuvo drops

Thanks for Looking
Cheers

Stencil and Watercolour

This week's challenge with the CCEE Stampers team is to show us your favorite technique in cardmaking. Maybe it is embossing, fancy folds, paper piecing, multilayered stamping, paper piercing, collage, etc. We will enjoy seeing what you have to offer in fun techniques.

I really don't have a favourite technique but dabble is a few things and enjoy them all, but my go to for a quick card as I am generally time poor, is using a stencil and a sponge for a background and watercolouring with distress inks.
