CCEE1703, Black and Cream (Ivory)

Well, I continue on as the CCEE hostess for January.

This week, I challenge you to make a black and Cream (Ivory) card.  No other colors on the card.  You may use die cuts, punches, stamps....anything you want as long as there is no other color on your card but black and cream (ivory).

Have fun with this challenge....not a very hard one, but I bet the cards turn out really cool.

Have a wonderfully creative day!

CCEE1702, Tri-fold card.

I've been having a lot of fun creating these tri fold cards.  This one was made for my aunt and she loved it.

There are lots of instructions on splitcoaststampers and You Tube....I'm not going to limit you to any one in particular.  Find one you like and show us your stuff!  This one is quite simple, but the end results are something else.

Here's another I made for a lady in my card club:

and one for a lady at church:

As you can see, I had fun playing with this fold and will be using it again in the future.

Have a fun, wonderful creative day!  Don't forget to add CCEE1702 to key words on splitcoaststampers.

CCEE1646, Party with Your Bear Day

Frances carries on as hostess.  She says November 16th was "Have a Party With Your Bear Day".  So, to celebrate, let's feature bears on our cards.

I fell in love with this little mama bear and her cub and decided to make a Christmas card.  Because of the high cost of mailing cards now, I am trying to make as many CAS cards as I can.  I hope you like it.

Please join in with our challenge and show us your favorite bear.  Add CCEE1646 to key words on splitcoaststampers.

Have a fun, creative day!
