CCEE1434, Back to School

Back to school --- Amber's kids start back to school today and she's doing the happy dance.

Amber wants us to make a card or item that can be given to the teacher at open house or the first day of school.  Laynee started second grade yesterday and I made this card for her to give her new teacher.  I used two Sassy Cheryl digitals ... first, I sized the books like a big stack and then the little gal smaller to fit on top of the books showing she's "on top of things".  Used the computer to write "2nd Grade....Ready to Learn1" and had wrote the math problems.  Paper piercing finished the card.

Hope you like it and hope you will join in with the CCEE team.  Link back to the CCEE Blog and add CCEE1434 to keywords on SCS.

Hey, I bet a lot of you are doing the happy dance!

FS393, Hi

Today's Featured Stamper is Fionna51...Diane has a marvelous gallery full of eye candy.

Didn't take long to find this pretty card to case.

I used my Cricuit to cut out the Iron Gate and various punches and dies to complete the card.

Thanks for some great inspiration, Dianne...enjoy your time as the Featured Stamper.

Today's challenge comes from a site called Design Seeds Blog. What a great source for color inspiration.

I chose this chalice as my inspiration Page 3.

This is my first attempt at freehand water coloring. Van Gogh I am not, but it is what it is. Man, do I need practice!!!!

QFTD223, Dini

Today's Queen is none other than Dina. Dini..our fearless leader of stamping questions and techniques! Big shoes to fill!

I chose this awesome card to case.

I watercolored most of my background, added some Lava Red Metallic Rub, some PearlEx and called it a day. Certainly not Dini's card, but close and I do like it.

Enjoy your reign, Dini...thanks for all the assistance you give us with questions and techniques. Your work is amazing!

CCEE1433, Saying Goodbye

Amber continues on as hostess this month.  She says to make a card saying good-bye.  Could be a sympathy card, safe trip, farewell....anything saying good-bye.

I found this quote from Donna Gable Hatch on the net and thought it would make a good sentiment for a Good-bye card. I used a digital image which I cannot find now, so don't know who did it and colored it with Copics.  A Spellbinder branch with flowers and Heidi Swaps stencil finished my CAS card.

Please join us in this challenge and link your card back to the link on the CCEE Blog.  Add CCEE1433 to your keywords if posting on splitcoaststampers. 

Have a great, creative day!

SC501, James 1:17

Today's sketch challenge is 3 circles in the left hand corner. I'm hoping that my 3 flowers count...if not, listen for the sirens from the Challenge Police.

I had made this watercolor paper for a previous color challenge and decided to use it. I actually cut the die out of it and then cut it again with the brown card stock. I then pieced all the water colored petals back into the die. The whole die is imbedded in the watercolor paper. A little time consuming, so I'm adding it as my sketch challenge.. POLICE???

Have a fun day!
