CCEE Stampers-Recipe


This week Kathy Bradley, as hostess, asked the CCEE Stampers to do a card following a recipe:
In addition to your card base, use two designer papers, 1 circle (oops--I  used more than one if you count my stamped image), one square, and whatever else your heart desires.

We hope you'll join us this week and let us see your project. Check out the rest of the team's cards and upload your card using the inlinkz button.

Stamps-Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom (sentiment), Sorry I don't know the name of my stamped image. Wish I did. My sis gave a group of them to me and didn't remember where she got them.   They seem to be a set of purple and white circle foam-like stamps. I have searched the internet for them and came up empty. If you recognize the image and know the maker,  I would appreciate if you let me know.

Leaves of Three

Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #57

I've been busy making cards this week, haven't I? The temps are in the 80's again today and I should be outside but I'm hiding from pollen. Of course, it will catch up with me soon and I'll be miserable for a couple weeks. The Southeast is the worst place for allergies in the U.S. Just look it up. Although, I am sure many suffer elsewhere.

 I've watched my friend, Bonnie, at Stamping with Klass makes such pretty Christmas cards for  the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge where she is a DT member and thought I needed to get on my Christmas cards again. So, I got out my holly image and went to work.

This week is a sketch:

I punched out some 1" circles with a Fiskars punch, handmade a banner, and used a Spellbinders circle nestabilitie for stamping my image. The bow is a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon/bow.
My image is Ornamental Holly Fabric Stamp Set by Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I am stamping on paper, though, not fabric.  It works well on both.

The paper is PTI White, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. Ink is Memento Bamboo Leaves. My sentiment is from Hot Off the Press/Christmas Words.

My card also fits the March Christmas Challenge 2013/Dirty Dozen Monthly Themes. It is a challenge for Fan Club Membesr  and is an ongoing challenge so you are welcome to play whenever you please.: SCSCCMarch13. The challenge is Leaves of Green or Three.

Travelling On

It's been so long since I've been able to play in the CASology challenge. I have a bit of time this week and thought I would join. Now, that Spring has arrived (we were in the low 80's yesterday--yippee), I am certainly ready for travel and that is what their challenge is all about this week.  My little van is sputtering along as fast as possible all over this land. Hope it heads to the beach as that is my favorite place.
