Welcome to another challenge with the CCEE team, and here is Maryann's final challenge for the month I hope that you have enjoyed all the cards over the last month.

 I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's set back stamping tutorial, using stamps and dies, something different to the normal layering that should be fun trying.

Here is my card which I used Our Daily Bread Design stamps and die:

Welcome to the CCEE Stampers blog, it is Maryann who is out hosttess with this weeks challenge.

According to the days of the year calendar it is Fortune cookie day, use this to inspire an oriental themed card.

I have not one fortune cookie stamp, and didn't have time to hunt down the very few oriental stamps I have, so I purchased these stickers for my card. This is a fast card, because I have been out of town this week as well, and it was the best I could do for this challenge.

The team has some great cards, so check out what my friends did on the CCEEStampers blogsite that is located HERE. While you are there, I hope you are motivated to play along with this week's challenge.

TLC707 and Dragonfly journeys challenge

I did this card for the Technique Lovers Challenge on SCS today and also for the paper piecing challenge over at

Coral is one of my very favorite colors and I loved these new design papers in a 6 by 6 pad I found at Tuesday Morning. It matched perfectly with this old cameo coral I have had in my stash a number of years. I added some speckles with an old SU itty bitty background stamp with versamrk ink and covered them with gold embossing powder. The lovely girl image is of course from Unity, and the Dream is a diecut. I added a few sequins just for a little extra sparkle, as dreams should include all the glitter and pazazz it can so we can shoot for the stars, right??

CCEE1836 shadow box card

Welcome to the CCEE Stampers blog. It is Maryann here as our hostess for the month. I do hope you come and join in the challenges.

Shadow box card - This card has been around for a lot of years but lately I have noticed some modern twists to it, so give us your version of a shadow box card.

Here is my card, made with kraft and ivory paper. The stamps I used were from Unity, and I used some of my favorite paper punches to embellish it.
