Day One ISC Release PLUS CCEE/Stampin B's

Release Day One---
Innovative Stamp Creations
Are you ready to be dazzled? 

Do you love realistic nature images?

Well.....starting today and continuing for the next three days, the Creative Architects of Innovative Stamp Creations will be surely jump start your creative juices.  We were challenged to create unique card folds with these new lines.  Variety is the spice of life, right????  This challenge surely challenged ME!!!

Today we start with 2 card designs using Beautiful Butterflies II and III.  This first card is a Pop Out Frame Card.  I have taken a few pictures of this one from different angles.

The first, larger photo, shows the front of the card.  The smaller photo to the left shows the card opened, with an overview of the fold. while the other small photo shows you a straight-on view of the card opened.

Beatiful Butterflies II was the set used to make this card.

Can one ever have enough butterfly stamps????  I think NOT, so let's go on to my next card which was made with the Beautiful Butterflies III set. sure to visit the blogs/galleries of the other Creative Architects for even more are the links to help you do that.  I am sure you will be dazzled!!!

CCEE and Stampin' B's Challenge Card

Today my CCEE challenge and my Stampin B's challenge were almost exactly the same.  NancyRuth was our hostess for the Stampin B's and she asked us to make a card that screamed 'SUMMER'.  Shirley, our CCEE hostess for June asked us to make a summertime card that used a flower, flower ribbon, or both.  I went with the single flower.  The image is by Stamp Camp, and, as usual, I forgot who made the sentiment.  Just leave a comment if you want to know and I'll get back to ya'.

Now please be sure to check out the work of the fabulously creative members of both these challenge teams.  Here are the links to get you to the team blogs.

Omigosh! No wonder you're buried in the stamp cave.....look at these magnificent creations! The beautiful pop-out frame card totally rocks (I hope there's a tutorial somewhere for this); the red, black and white card is simply stunning in color and design; and I just knew you'd have to use some kind of water scene for your summer challenge card, which is peaceful and inviting. Awesome cards, JoJo!
