CCEE Stampers-It's All About RED



Hope you like RED because that is the challenge this week at CCEE Stampers-Use Red. Our hostess, the month of August, is Anne/Inking in Red, so there is no surprise that this was the first challenge. I think red is pretty awesome, too.

I made a simple card using a stamp I think I purchased in the $1 bin at Jo-Ann Stores. Good bargain as I happen to really like it. The stamp is Studio112/Summer Mini Assortment.

Hope you'll get RED this week and join us. We would love to see your creations.

Recipe:
Paper-PTI white cs, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler
Ink-Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler
Accessories-Copics for coloring candle flames, EK Success zig zag chain punch, SU Cherry Cobbler ribbon, embossing folder came with a new Cuttlebug (no name)

Oh, just a few more weeks and you will be seeing and using a lot of red (and grey/gray) as it is almost football season!!!! This birthday card rocks Benz. It is such a great involved CAS card -lots going on but still very clean. The ribon is wonderful and that $1 stamp is a fab find! Hey someone should start a blog about fab finds they pick up so the rest of us can run out and find it too - I vote you and Bearzi get together and start it since you two are the Queens of fab finds.

Great card! Hugz!
