Noel

Well it is time for another challenge over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Maryann Einam continues as our challenge hostess for the month.

Maryann has asked us to create a card using photos, photo stamps etc.

Well I don’t have any photo stamps and my printer is out of ink so I can’t print any photos. What to do? I decided to share a Christmas card I made back in 1996! Since I have 4 kids, I decided to take a picture of them each holding a letter that would then spell out Noel.

Easy you say? Sure, if you didn’t have a 9 month old holding the letter L wanting to eat it! lol

JordenL1 Only took a handful of shots of her to get the one I used on the card!

Stamped snowflakes in the background and used matching ribbon and cardstock to finish off my card.

Movember Gnome

mustachgnome

Time for another CCEE challenge!! This being a brand new month, it is time to introduce Maryann Einam as our challenge hostess for the month.

Maryann has asked us to celebrate Movember by created a card that features a moustache.

I racked my brain for the longest time trying to think of what image I had with a moustache. I thought I was going to have to sit this one out as I didn’t have a single thing and then it hit me. I have the Gnome What? set from North Coast Creations! duh! The Gnome has a moustache!!  So that is what I used.

Colored image with copics and used a white gel pen for his moustache and beard. Did a little out of the box cutting with the mushroom stamp.

I made two cards for today using both sets that I have. Tommy Turkey and Snowman Family.

For Tommy Turkey, I colored him with copics. Layered his beak and hat 3 times and his face twice. (Forgot to take a side picture! duh!)

For Snowman Family, I embossed them in silver and cut it out completely. Adhered it to the vellum with pop dots.

For my Snowman Family card, I colored the image with copics, used white gel pen for the balls on the ends of their hats and also on the tree as ‘snow’. Sprinkled some “snow” Flower Soft on and did a little faux stitching around the image.

Tommy Turkey is looking all proud colored with copics and cut out completely. White gel pen was used on his collar and a Spica pen on the buckle of his hat. He is also attached with dimensions.

Happy Anniversary

amberfallinspiredcopy

Time for another challenge over at the  CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostesses for the month Liz and Lynn has another fun challenge for us.

This time round the challenge is to Create a card using the rich, wonderful colors of autumn.

I used an image from Paper Pretties for my card. Now you may say well that doesn’t look like an autumn card. Well let me explain. Today, 21 yrs. ago I was waking up for one of the most important days of my life…. my wedding. So this card of course represents that crisp fall day using fall colors. The clothes are paper pieced.

Of course the above looks nothing like my husband and I so I thought I would share a picture from that happy day oh so many years ago. (and really we were happy, this was just one of those serious shots)

    Happy Halloween

    pumpkinscary

    Challenge time over at the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostesses of the month, Liz Williams & Lynn McAuley continue to bring us fun challenges.

    Create a card using your favorite ghoul, ghost, monster, or witch to scare up some Halloween fun.

    I don’t do Halloween so I have no ghoul, ghost or monster images so I went with a Jack ‘o Lantern cupcake using Paper Pretties Holiday Sweets I instead. Colored the image with copics. Added yellow stickles to the stars. Pulled out some “Halloween” design paper that I have and made my card. The sentiment also comes from the Holiday Sweets I set.
