Sadly, several people close to me have had to face the loss of a loved one this autumn. Today's Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps is a masculine sympathy card which I made to send to one of them.
The challenge this week at CCEE Stampers is to create a one layer card. I am currently in Christmas card mode as I prepare sets of cards for an upcoming charity auction. This design came together pretty quickly and easily. The images are from Ornamental Pine and Merry Little Christmas by Stampin' Up. I stamped the pine needles with Memento Olive Grove and the cones were stamped double, first with Memento Rich Cocoa followed with Memento Potter's Clay. I then sponged the edge all around with Memento Bamboo Leaves and then the cones with Stampin' Up Soft Suede. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and then embossed in gold. As a final touch, I dabbed Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse around the outside edge.

For this week's CCEE Stampers' Challenge the theme is Get Well which is great since I am always needing more get well cards. I created this quick and simple design with Kitchen Sink Stamps' Carnations Multi Step Clear Stamps and The Stamps of Life Get Well Soon die. I actually finished a dozen of these in 30 minutes (thanks to the MISTI)!
We would love for you to join us in this week's challenge and post your get well design on the CCEE Stampers' Blog! Here are links to the get well designs by the CCEE Team:
I discovered when I needed to send a thank you card last week that my supply was depleted so the cards I design for the rest of this week will be thank you cards! With the inventory of cards I have on hand, there is no excuse for not having what I need at a moment's notice. That being said, today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps are thank you cards featuring the beautiful PearsMulti Step Clear Stamps. The sentiment for each is from Make a Big Statement Clear Stamps.
