'Mustache' You to Play with the Crazies

Frances is the hostess for the Crazy4Challenges DT for November.  She gave us this challenge.

Let’s Celebrate “Movember” by including a mustache somehow on your cards … big or small all mustaches are welcome! It can be Mustaches on your images, designer paper, die cut whatever as long as there is a mustache somewhere on your card/product ... hint if you get stuck Santa has a mustache ;).

Well....I happened to have a virgin Mustache set sitting them waiting to be used.  It is by The Craft's Meow.

Thanks for stopping be sure to visit the Crazies Blog to see the fab mustache creations by the rest of the team.

Going Scenic with the CCEE Stampers

Lynn and Liz, our CCEE Stampers hostesses for October, end the month with a challenge to create a scene.  (NO...not the kind of scene that you get in trouble for.....just use images/die cuts/dp to literally make a scenic card.)

I embossed the background and added a window.  The image I used is from La La Land stamps and the tree is a Cottage Kutz (I think).  Thiis was a pretty easy card to make, but I must admit I really do like the way it turned out.

Be sure to visit the CCEE Stampers Blog to see the fabulous scenes created by the rest of the team.

The Crazies Are Inspired

I was unable to grab the photo Jess gave the Crazy4Challenge DT for inspiration this week.  You will have to travel to the Crazies Blog to see it.  While there you should check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the tesm.

I kept mine simple, using a Penny Black pooch stamp, and adding a bi of texture to the mid panel.  I also added a touch of piercing and some brads.

Thanks for stopping in.

The CCEE'ers Enjoy Autumnal Colors

This will be a quick post as it is minutes to posting time.

Lynn and Liz, the CCEE Stampers Challenge hostesses for October, asked us to use the colors of the season on our creations this week.

I used a set by Sweet n' Sassy Stamps to create my background, and a sentiment stamp by Stamp Studio to finish it off.  The leaves were hear embossed with copper embossing powder.  To the sentiment panel I added a border with a MS punch.

Be sure to check out the autumnal gallery at the CCEE Blog.

Crazies Sketch

This is the third challenge of the month for the Crazy4Challenges DT so a sketch challenge it is.  You can see the actual sketch on the Crazies Blog as well as the fab creations of the rest of the DT and our guest designer.  I stayed very true to the sketch.

Besides designer paper, I used stamps by MFT and Penny Black.  I used a Marvy corner punch and MFT die cuts.  I dry embossed the green mid panel.

Thanks so much for stopping sure to check out the Crazies Blog.

Crazies Get Ready for Halloween

Just a quick post tonight.  The Crazy4Challenge goal this week was to create Halloween objects.  I have a goal creating things I will actually use as much as possible, so  I went with a simple card using this subtle skeleton chair image that was still a virgin.

Be sure to visit the Crazies blog to see the celebratory creations of the rest of the DT.  You will be dazzled by their fabulous packaging ideas.  Amazing!!!

The CCEE Gets in a Musical Spirit

Lynn and Liz, our CCEE Stampers hostesses for October, informed us that this month is also International Drum Month.  They asked us to make a card using a drum or other musical instrument to celebrate music as the international language.  I just love the idea of this.  I have done a bit of traveling over the years and have found myself in situations where I find myself unable to communicate as I do not speak any language other than English.  However, whenever the situation involved music, it seemed to bring us together whether the lyrics were in Polish, Japanese, or any other language.

This is the only musical instrument stamp I have.  I bought it as I have a dear friend who is a master on the saxophone  This will be his birthday card for next August.....and I know he will LOVE it.....

Be sure to see the musical gallery at the CCEE Blog.

Crazies Play with Colors

Jess challenged us to a color challenge this week.  The Crazy4Challenges colors are orange, green, and purple.  My guess would be that most people went with a Halloween theme, but I have a tendency to NOT send Halloween cards, so I went with a card that could be used for a birthday or a thinking of you card.

I forgot to write down what stamps I used, but I 'think' the floral is Penny Black and the sentiment is MFT.....but I could be totally wrong.  If you really need to know, say so in a comment and I will get back to you.

Be sure to visit the Crazies Blog to see what the rest of the DT did with these colors.
