Let's Have Fun with the CCEE and the Stampin B's

Stamping B's Challenge #57
Botanical
Our challenge this week was to use something green/botanical. I went with my new fav ferns from I Brake for Stamps. AND....I literally went ALL green....lol!!!

I used my Nesties for the main panels, punched the corners, added a Martha Steward punched border to some MS designer paper.

Then I tied it all up with some SU celery ribbon.
Now be sure to go to the Stampin' B's blog to see the work of the rest of the team.  And...if you have some time, please play along with us.

CCEE Challenge 1018
Mother's Day Card
We have a new hostess this month.  Frances is expecting her first grandchild, a boy, ao she has connected all of May's challenges to this upcoming event.  This week, it is a simple one.....make a Mother's Day card.

I used a Fiskar's combo border/corner punch, my fav Marvy scalloped corner rounder, and a Marvy regular corner rounding punch.  I used some fab ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers and some bling to finish it off.  My image is from Penny Black (I think!!).

The CCEE blog awaits your gazing pleasure......lots of wonderful designs I am sure!!!!


AND...just one more thing....if you are an Innovative Stamp Creations' stamp owner, the inspiration challenge found here is still ongoing.
