Wow, the third week of May already! As you probably know,our hostess loves to make Fun Fold cards. So she asking all CCEE Stampers to make a card that includes more than one fold on it. IShe says it doesn't have to be complicated; it just needs to have more than the normal "fold in half." My card is a three level seaside diorama.
Stamped Images and Sentiment are from
High Tide by Stampin' Up

Lois Bak, May hostess for the CCEE Stampers, is back with another challenge. The second week in May is Wildflower Week so this week's cards need to feature flowers! I am sharing a little Tim Holtz love today as I have used my new Distress Oxides to create my card as well as his new Wildflowers #2 dies. The sentiment by our past first lady is from a wonderful Texas stamp maker, deadbeat DESIGNS. The following Distress Oxides were used on this card: broken china peeled paint iced spruce fired brick fossilized amber spiced marmalade
See the beautiful blossoms featured by the rest of the CCEE Stampers:
For Let's Make a Scene #50 sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I made this peek into an apartment window into a quick and simple birthday card. The bricks were created with Studio 490 Stencil Basically Bricks sponged with fired brick Distress Oxide. The window is a die from Poppy Stamps. The images come from Multi Step Baskets, Multi Step Get Well Teddy, and Make a Big Statement.
Lois Bak is starting her month as hostess for the CCEE challenges and she has found a truly weird celebration to start off the month. May 4th is National Candied Orange Peel Day. To celebrate, she has asked that the CCEE Stampers include the color ORANGE (which just happens to be one of her favorites!) on our cards.

For Fun Fold #8 sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I have used the classic gate fold to hide a bouquet of beautiful roses inside my Mother's Day card! I hope my mom likes her surprise!

Spring is here and flowers are blooming. That is probably why April is National Garden Month. For her final challenge as the CCEE April hostess, Joanne as asked that we make a card that includes floral or garden images.
The fourth and final Monday of April brings with it a new Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. Today's card was inspired by the hummingbirds that have returned to my part of Texas in recent weeks. I can sit for hours watching them flit from flower to flower in the backyard!
Images from the following Kitchen Sink Stamps' sets were used to create this scene:
Hostess Joanne Grzelak has invited the CCEE Stampers to have some fun with this third April Challenge! April is Global Astronomy Month. Create a card having to do with astronomy, such as moons and stars, but not limited to that. You could also fantasize about alien creatures and space travel. Use your imagination….Dazzle us!!!

Fun Fold #7 sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps is a simple window box frame folded from a 5 x 5 inch piece of designer paper. I marked dots at 2.5 inches on each side and then scored the paper as shown in the first photo.
Here the paper has been scored and folded:
For the first sample, I added a 3.5 white panel inside for stamping. On the last two I stamped directly on the designer paper.
For our second April challenge our hostess, Joanne, informed the CCEE Stampers that April is National Humor Month. She reminds us that there are many occasions when a funny image or sentiment can make the day of someone facing some type of challenge (or an "aged" birthday). So this week she has asked the CCEE Stampers to make cards showcasing humor. For me and my friends, every birthday is a challenge these days. Here is the card that I have made for a friend celebrating an unnamed birthday this month!
