For this week's Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I have returned to one of my favorite places---the beach. Could there be a more perfect way to end the summer? I don't think so!! I think it will be a great masculine birthday with it's seaside theme and tall design.
Images for this design came from the following Kitchen Sink sets:
This week the topic is insects. Anne's challenge to the CCEE Stampers is to make a card using bees, dragonflies, any kind of insect. She said to be sure to add some stickles to their wings (if they have wings!), but I forgot! Ooops! Sorry, Anne!
The sentiment is from Unity.
The ladybug dies are from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
The branch and leaves are Sizzix dies. Check out the buggy creations by the CCEE Design Team below:
For today's design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I have created a card for the Crafters of Faith Challenge. The Crafters of Faith is a group of wonderful Christian ladies who have joined together over on Splitcoaststampers in this faith-based group. Our mission is to encourage each other, chat with each other, lift each other up, pray for each other, and craft together with scripture as our focus. August is my month to serve as hostess of this challenge, and I have chosen as this month's scripture James 1:17 --- Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. I have encouraged the Crafters of Faith this month to celebrate life's simple pleasures which bless our days with joy and beauty and meaning in the cards they create.
The images from these Kitchen Sink sets were used to create this card:
Anne Harmon is our CCEE hostess for the month of August. For her first challenge, she has asked the CCEE Stampers to use any technique that involves embossing - wet, dry, resist - whatever floats our boats! So I did a little dry embossing on the background and wet embossing on my sentiment! The sentiments and die cut are both from Altenew.
Head on over and see the rest of the embossed beauties created by the CCEE Design Team!!
Today's card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps was created for a dear friend who was involved in a serious accident this week. It was created with images from 3 Step Butterflies, Multi Step Big Leaves, Letters from the Past, and Words of Comfort & Joy by Kitchen Sink Stamps. It was stamped entirely with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger. I can't seem to put them down these days! They do things that no other inks can!!

CCEE hostess, Maryann, has challenged the CCEE Stampers to create a tall thin card with any theme to celebrate Walk on Stilts Day this week! Here's mine. No stamping at all this week - just embossing and die cuts for this elegant white-on-white sympathy design.
This week's Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps is a tropical birthday card featuring single layer silhouettes from 3 Step Aloha and Multi Step Palm Trees. The red moon was created using Abandoned Coral and Black Soot Distress Oxides. The sky and water were sponged on with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and the silhouettes and sentiment were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
I cannot tell you how much I love the new Distress Oxides from Ranger. I received my shipping notice that the 12 newest colors are winging their way to my house this week. Unable to contain my excitement, I pulled out my old ones to create this colorful design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. The images are from Multi Step Carnation and Make a Big Statement.
According to the days of the year calendar, today is International Rock Day - so hostess Frances Byrne has asked that we use the colors of stone ( greys, browns, black, white etc..) for our CCEE Stampers designs this week.
I have used images from the following sets:
Flutter Stamp by Bo Bunny
Insightful Meadows by Unity
She Never Says Never by Unity
Itty Bitty Backgrounds by Stampin' Up
