Hi everyone,

It's Frances here with our new  challenge for you all this week.

Yesterday was World Music Day; Music Day and Make Music Day .... so let's include something music related on our cards this week.

If you would like to play along, don't forget to come back here and post a link to your card on the Mr Linky over at the CCEEStampers blogsite that can be found here. Check out the team's cards while you are there. 

For my card, I used a stamp from Layers of Color. I also used an embossing folder that I inked with amber fossil oxide distressed ink. The pretty design paper I found in my stash of hoarded paper. Loved the little gold spots on it. I added some punched butterflies with pearled bodies. 

My three challenge card

I have been having such fun with my Oxide Distress inks. This time I used them on a piece of design paper that looked like ledger paper. I did some subtle stamping of a smaller image with butterflies from Unity with these same ODIs, then added the scripture (from Sweet and Sassy stamps) and the diecut butterfly and image from ODBD. I added the diecut leaves and punched flowers as my final embellishment. I went over the butterfly wings with a sparkle pen, although it doesn't show up so well in the photo. I am using this in the following challenges this week:
The Mustard Seed Faith challenge - to use birds, butterflies, or Natural scene
Simon Says challenge - to used patterned papers either printed or handstamped
Mod Squad Challenge - use many colors.

I created this background paper on a piece of design paper, and liked the way it turned out. After the stamping and colors were done, I glued it to a light blue card base.

Another MSC Make a Square

I just had to do another Power Poppy card for the Make a Square challenge over on Mod Squad this week. I love this digital of the dogwood and I am always in need of cards with this sentiment for my Care Team obigations at my church.  You can find the challenge here.

Make it Square

I used a Power Poppy digital image and digital sentiment for this square 5 and 1/2 square card for this card for the Mod Squad Make it a Square card challenge. I colored it with copic markers, sponged lipstick pink Oxide ink around the edges. I have been making my cards more mail friendly lately so this is a one layered card. Here is where you will find this challenge.

Hi everyone,

It's Frances as our hostess again with another fun challenge for you all.

According to the Days of the Year Web Site - Friday 16th is Flip-Flop Day. So for our card this week let's make flip flop cards! That can be the flip-flops that are shoes (thongs for us in Aussie) …. Or Flip Flop Cards or both …. Or you may have another flip flop idea whatever works for you :) 

Want to play along? Don't forget to come back and add the link to your card using Mr Linky that you will find here on the cceestampers blog.

I tried to make a fancy fold card and making my own pattern. Kind of crude, but had fun experimenting. No stamps, just cut paper, and even did my own hand written message.

Paper Players challenge #348

Below is my card for this challenge. I used one of my newest purchases from Unity stamps to make this card. I stamped it with versafine black, and colored it with copic markers. These seemed like the perfect colors for this cute image. I came closest to these colors with what I had on hand. Hope it works. Here is the link to this challenge.

Now let's see what the Design Team has created for you this week ........
over on the blog site here

I have been having such fun with my new Distress Oxide inks and created this background behind my stamped image of the ship from Flonz. I colored my sails with a white galaxy pen and the wood with a brown copic marker.
