This week's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored slimline design is a Father's Day card featuring images from Mallard Ducks, Ocean Waters, Shoreline Rocks, and Seaside Seagull. The clouds were created with KSS' Cloudy Skies SVG cut stencil. The sentiment is from Bold Holiday Greetings.

CCEE May Challenge Hostess, Liz Williams says, "Wow, it has finally arrived, and I have had all my vaccines, so maybe this year can mean a road trip!! May 28th is National Road Trip Day!! Your creation might include a map, a wonderful scene, or an exhausting shopping spree to a great out-of-town spot you haven't ventured to in quite some time. You might want to include the car if you would like on your card. Have fun, and if a road trip is still not on your agenda, take a virtual one in your imagination."
Sounds good to me! I can't wait to get out on the road again. My card features some of those fabulous girlfriends from Art Impressions.
Check out the travel plans of the rest of the CCEE DT:

This Monday I am here to share with you a Spring Thanks design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. It features images from Water Lilies, Cattails, Spring Daffodils, and Watercolor Thanks. I also used the SVG cut stencils Cloudy Skies and Waves & Splashes.
I also used my Cricut Joy to cut the lily pads, the water lilies, the frog, and the thanks using the KSS SVG cut files which come for free with your stamps if you put them in the basket at the time of your purchase. If not, you can purchase them anytime for 99¢.

May 20th is International Tiara Day, and also the birthday of Queen Victoria. So Liz Williams, our May CCEE Stampers Hostess, has asked the CCEE Stampers to get out our crowns, gemstones, and gold to see what we can create that would be fit for a queen. She says it can be a card or crown for the favorite little princess in your life, or maybe you love the look of Victorian styled art and decor. All she asks is that we have fun and be creative.
I used my WeRMemory Keepers Word Punch to create the sentiment bars.
Glitter is a stamp by Crafters' Companion.
Here are the designs of the CCEE DT fit for a queen:

I tried something new (to me) on today's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored card. Although I have been using my Cricut Joy for almost a year now, until this morning, I had never inserted the pen and used it to create my sentiment. That will be changing today. What fun to print some of my favorite quotes directly onto a card front featuring my favorite images!
It is no secret to my followers that the ocean and the beach are two of my favorite places to be, as well as, favorite themes for my cards. In this time of challenge and change, this William James quote spoke to me and I felt it was perfect for this design.
Images on this card came from the following Kitchen Sink Stamps Sets:

May CCEE Challenge hostess, Liz Williams has the CCEE Stampers celebrating May 13th which is Chocolate Chip Day. Who is not won over with a chocolate chip cookie in their life? So, on our cards this week Liz has asked us to represent this day any way we would like from chocolate chip cookies, to chocolate of any kind, or making use of brown as our main color focus.
I mixed together images from Stampin' Up's Nothing's Better Than set and the birthday girl from With Age Comes New Skills by Unity.
What chocolate delights do the CCEE DT members have prepared for you today?

After a wonderful weekend of celebrating Mother's Day with my family, I find myself in need of several Thank You cards. Today's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored design is one of those cards!
The background was created with their newly released SVG cut file, Herringbone Slimline Stencil. I first inked the entire panel with Distress Oxide Ink in scattered straw. I then brushed on the herringbone with DO ripe persimmon. The splatters were created with abandoned coral Distress Spray Stain.
