CCEE1846 Topaz

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to another CCEE Stampers challenge  and Anne is our hostess. 

The November birthstone is a TOPAZ. Make a card using the colors in the yellow to amber range. 

Let's see what our Design Team have created for us this week .Hope you play along and add your link over on the CCEEblog you can find HERE.

I used this old Flourish stamp in my collection because I love this sunflower and the wonderful art of Marcela Hawley. I used the gingham washi tape as my panel and embossed the inked basket weave embossing folder to add to the topaz look. I used my Oxide inks in various ways on this card.

Mod Squad Grid card

A little short on time for this challenge, the real challenge became getting it done in the time that was left on the linky over at Mod Squad, You can find the challenge HERE. I used a Unity stamp for the main image and some small SU stamps for some of the grids.

CAS507 and C4C460

This card fit many purposes today. I needed a sympathy card, the SC CAS challenge was color blocking, and this week's Crazy 4 Challenges was one one layer card (my favorites). So I used an old retired SU stamp to do the blocks of color with some of the purples in my Distress Oxide Ink collection. It used the black DOI for the image from Stampabilities and the sentiment also a Stampabilities stamp.  I also only took me 10 minutes to do this card.

Crafty Calendar Challenge - paper piecing

I have been so excited about using my Kedsom brushes especially with my oxide inks and my stencils. I did this on kraft paper. I stamped the Unity image onto the kraft paper, then I stenciled the background carefully not to get on the stamped image. I paper pieced her sweater and glued it on.
Then I stamped the sentiment. I colored her hair with alcohol markers and blended it with a blender pen.

CCEE1845 Tongue Twister Day

Apparently, it is Tongue Twister Day. This was a great challenge to me as none of the tongue twisters  I knew I didn't have stamps to go with, or the ones I did, someone had already used that tongue twister. So, I just got really creative and made up my own to fit one of the stamps I had. I was lucky too to find this nautical paper pad I found that had this sheet of  dp with crabs on it. So, here is my created tongue twister for you:  This crazy, creepy crab cries for crispy, crunchy crackers!!  

Have fun with this one, and join us over on the CCEE blogsite HERE and check out what the other team members came up with this week to challenge your tongue and its twisting abilities!!
