CCEE2233 ~ Pluto Demoted Day!

Hi friends!

BEEN a hot minute since I've posted

and I have a lot of cards card kits stuff to catch up on,

but first!

It's time for a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers!

Frances is our hostess for August and this is her challenget today:

According to the Days of the Year web site, yesterday 24th August was Pluto Demoted Day,

 this day marks the occasion in 2006 when Pluto was demoted

 from being a planet to a dwarf planet. 

For our challenge today, create a card that has a space theme.

Oh poor Pluto!

I grew up knowing Pluto as a planet so to see it demoted

envokes a tiny bit of awwwwww!

But here's my card!

A bit cheeky but a fun one!

I created the background using old nailpolish and water

and dipped the cardstock into the water ~

hences, getting this galaxy-ish, tie-dye-ish look!

Good enough :)

I added the astronaut from My Favorite Things set

as if he's floating about in space and the sentiment

which is a perfect match - was one I found laying on my desk!

Good.  Thing.  I.  Didn't.  Clean.  Up!

Be sure to check out the CCEE Stampers blog

and see what everyone has made today!

CCEE2232 ~ National Peach Month!

   Hi friends!

    You're a peach!

And so is the month of August :)

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers blog

with our hostess, Frances and this is her challenge!

Apparently August is Peach month and Monday 22nd August is National Peach Day, 

so for our challenge this week create a card that features one or more things

 that begin with the letter "P" .. 

A punched image; patterned paper; pansy; paint; person 

or a product that is from a company whose name starts with “P”.

Wow that is a lot of P's but creative enough that I'm sure 

you'll find something in your crafty stash to play along!

For my card, I used a stamp from Pink Fresh Studio

as well as as Paint (watercolor) for my image and background.

I also used Peaches and Cream cardstock (Fun Stampers Journey)

and Peach colored enamel dots (Altenew).

Be sure to head over to the CCEE Stampers blog

and check out all the DT cards

as well as link up yours, too!

CCEE2231~ Embossing folders!


                                                                  Hi Crafty Friends,

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers from our hostess, Frances.

She writes:

A few months ago, Jennifer McGuire shared a technique using embossing folders.

 Let’s give it a try. You can find Jennifer's tutorial here

For my card, I did use an Altenew embossing folder called mega succulent.

It's an extraordinary one to use!

I ran it through the Gemini Jr 

and then blended distress oxide inks onto the top of the cardstock

to highlight certain areas.

Be sure to see what the Design Team has created by heading to the blog!

3M: Wildflower bouquet!


Hi friends!

I have a new card to share today for the 3M card group

 ~ the 3 Musketeers ~

and it's a wildflower beauty!

We are 3 friends that create cards virtually

and take turns sending a mystery stamped image 


we each make a card with that stamped image using our own supplies :)

Here's mine!

I wanted the image to be the focal point of the card

so I added a sentiment to the inside of the card.

I normally only show the front of my cards

so the recipient can be surprised

but this one is heading to a local nursing home

for my son's carddonation so I'll share a peek :)

Thank you, Barb, for a beautiful image to work with this month.

To see what Barb and Jeanette created using this same image,

head over to their blogs



and we will be back next month with another mystery image!

Thanks for stopping by!
