CCEE Stampers

You can find my blog hop card one post down for day 3 of Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company.

This is my card for CCEE Stampers . I've been through quite an ordeal as my blog disappeared and didn't come back for about 6 hours or more. Now, that is quite scary. It was the first time it had happened to me. I was assured by other bloggers it would return and I'm certainly glad it did.

The challenge (CCEE1207) was given by Shirley this week to make a white on white card. You may add color to your image and use a colored ribbon if you like. I did sneak in a bit of lavender behind my cutting and embossing folder. :-)  I do love white on white cards. Hope you do, too. The members of the Design Team have made some beautiful cards. Check them out!!!

I'm using a Flourishes stamp set called A Year of Flowers 2 and it is the tiger lily. The sentiment is Stampendous Encouraging Words.  I used Copics to color the lilies in purples and added a ribbon by Ribbon Boutique in light orchid. Spellbinders Labels 3 is the frame I used for my image .The cutting and embossing folder is Marianne Design Designables Swirls Cutting and Embossing folder.

Cardstock used: PTI white, World Win ColorMates Light Lovely Lilac

Stunning card, Brenda! I love the die cut background with the purple peeking through! Fantastic coloring of the beautiful flowers! Glad your blog came back! The same thing happened to me awhile ago and it was an awful feeling!

Marisa said...

Gorgeous lilies and I love the bits of cut out. Beautifully done. Glad your blog reappeared too!

Emily Keaton said...

Those purple tiger lilies are STUNNING, Benzi!! I don't think I would have thought to make them purple, but I absolutely love the result. I have that Flourishes stamp--I just may have to give purple tiger lilies a try! Of course, my card could never be as beautiful as yours without that stunning embossed/diecut background. WOW! This is such a beauty, my friend. :)

Wonderful color on this lovely Card Benzi. I am so glad your blog appeared again - you seriously may need to get one of those force fields put around your house so Pamzi's spy equipment doesn't mess with the computer signals and other technical stuff. Hugz!!!

What fantastic embossing. I've never thought of cutting sections out and layer colour under it. Very effective.
