Power Poppy Challenge


I'm entering this card in the Power Poppy challenge to "cut it out".  After stamping and coloring my Powerpoppy Dancing With Daffodils digitals and coloring with Copics, I cut around the top.  Please note the black background is not part of my card, but an effort to hide my "stampin' stuff" from the photo.

I love, love, love Power Poppy flowers!!!  Hope you like my card.

Joanne carries on as May Hostess.  This week, Joanne says "This week we are going to have fabric and corrugated paper on our card/project.  The corrugated paper can be made using a crimper or already be crimped.  The fabric must be something other than ribbon.

I used a Spellbinder cattail die and crimped it.  My background is burlap.

CCEE1520, Acrylics and Inks


Joanne a/k/a jojot, carries on as May's hostess with the mostess!  This week, Joanne challenges us to use acrylics and inks to create a background...not stamps or embossing folders on the background!

I made my sand and surf with Memento Inks.  Then, I took white acrylic paint and dabbed at it with a paint brush for my "surf" crashing on the beach.

I am sure you are getting tired of seeing this type fold, but I still have 4 to make...this is #8 of 12 for a card swap we're doing at the local Scrapbook Station store.  I am trying to keep my "theme" to an ocean/water one....I love how this one turned out.  Hope you like it too!

Please join us in this challenge.  Add CCEE1520 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to the CCEE blog here,

CCEE1519, Josh and Courtney


Joanne, a/k/a jojot takes over as the hostess for May.  This week, Joanne issues a challenge to use an embossing folder, brads and a self-made flower.  You can use dies to create your flower if you want.

My cousin is getting married and I made this card for his wedding.  My center flower is a Sizzix die, My embossing folder is from Darcie and the little heart in the center of my blue flower is a brad.  Check, check and check!

I love that heart embossing folder.

Hope you will join the CCEE stampers and show us your creation by linking back to the CCEE blog.  If you post on splitcoast stampers, please use the keyword CCEE1519.

Have a fun, creative day!

CCEE1518, Stars


For Frances' last challenge, she says that April 28th was National Astronomy Day.  So, let's create a card/project which includes stars in some way.

I chose to do a Ghirardelli box.  The little box holds 4 Ghirardelli Chocolates!  You can find the tutorial on splitcoaststampers here.  It's a really easy little box, but next time, I think I'll just use my designer paper as I actually did this box in a sparkling blue, but then in order to qualify for this challenge, I ended up pasting my star designer paper over top.  In any event, it holds those 4 squares and will go with a birthday card to my neighbor.

Won't you join us and show us your "star(s)" card.  Please add CCEE1518 to key words on SCS and link back to the CCEE Blog.  Have a fun, creative day!

WT528, Inside and Out



Today's WT challenge is to match the inside and envie with the card.  The first photo shows my card with an insert showing the envie.  The second is the inside.  My grandson turned 30 yesterday (party on weekend)...how the heck did that happen????

I love this pull tab....once pulled, he'll get his "cash" prize!  I computer generated the pull tab sentiment, but have ordered the matching set with various sayings.  I used Michael's straws to make my candles and found the verse on the net.  I hope he likes it....I love how it turned out.

You have the best day evah!  {{{hugs}}}
