ISC Sneak Peek --- CCEE Challenge -- Stampin B's Challenge

CCEE Stampers' Challenge 1011
Host - Tosh
Challenge - Inspiration

Tosh challenged the CCEE team to another inspiration challenge this week.  The picture to the left is from William-Sanoma.  As you can see, I took my inspiration from the nest of eggs.

 I colored my image with my Copics, used my Classic Oval Nesties to cut the image and the mat, CB'd my trio of mid panels, and paper pierced around my background layer.  I added some fabulous ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers and hung a charm I bought at Michael's.

Now please be sure to visit the CCEE blog as well as the blogs of the individual team members.  You will be dazzled and amazed at the talent!!!


Stampin B's Challenge #50
Hostess Nancyruth
Challenge - Monochromatic/Green
Nancyruth was our hostess for the week and she challenged us to make a card using any shade of green.  I must admit that I was totally influenced by these fab mint green rhinestones I purchased recently.  The sad thing is that they really don't show up very well in this photo.  I used some mint green cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers which matches perfectly.  I then used one of my absolute favorite stamps EVER, which is my fern set from SU.  I heat embossed it in white on the mint card stock.  I used my Nesties to cut out the sentiment and mat, added some piercing with my SU piercing tools, and used my fav scallop corner rounder on the corners on the right side only.  I used a new-to-me CB embossing folder on the background.

Now be sure to visit the Stampin B's Blog to see the wonderful creations of this fabulous team.  Remember there is more to see now that we have 8 team members rather than the original 6.  More fabulous creations for you to gaze upon.


Innovative Stamp Creations
Sneak Peek
Friends Are Special Set
Tomorrow is the release date for Innovative Stamp Creations' newest stamp sheets.  You will truly be amazed by them.  They are not only fabulous on their own, but they are sets that can be used in so many ways with some of the stamps you already own.  The sheet represented here uses the Friends Are Special sheet.  On this card I created the dimensional flower with two of the flower images, made the background with another large image, and added one of the fab sentiments from the sheet.  On the background I used the emboss resist technique.  I embossed in white on white and then sponged on olive ink.  Love the way it blends with the graduated colors on the ribbon.

I have also connected one or more of these cards to the following challenges.....
Divine Divas (first card in this post)

You are just like the Energizer Bunny: you keep on ticking and pumping out one GORGEOUS card after another! Each of your samples today are absolutely lovely. I've never been overly fond of mint green, but you've managed to make it look stunning with your white embossing and that beautiful "new-to-you" embossing folder. Awesome cards, JoJo!

I love the birds nest on the first and the layout, the simplicity of nature in the second and the third is probably my most favorite with those gorgeous colors and flowers and texture. You aced all of these, Joanne!! Now go take a rest.
