CCEE1642, One Layer Card

Joanne (a/k/a jojot) continues on as hostess for October.

This week, she says she has a double challenge for us.  First, we must make a true one-layer card...nothing popped up or embellished.  Second, the card must have a Halloween or Thanksgiving theme.

I chose this Northwoods image and did a Thanksgiving card.  I like how it turned out and was amazed that a one layer could look good!  I think I will do most of my Thanksgiving cards this way.  Thanks, Joanne!

CCEE1641, World Sight Day

Joanne continues on as the hostess for October.  She says today is World Sight Day.  We are to include glasses, eye charts, or a sentiment related to one's sight on our cards today.

I have nothing with glasses, so I went on Pinterest and found this eye chart.  I think it makes a pretty good note card for a friend!

CCEE1639, Christmas/Winter Card

Easel Gatefold Closed

Easel Gatefold Open

For her last challenge this month, Lois says Summer is over!  Let's make a Christmas and/or Winter Card.

I saw a tutorial on this card, except it was a 5x7 and I thought it was pretty cool.  So, I downsized it so it would fit into an A2 envelope.  It closes and opens with the Gingerbread man band, which slides to the top to void those poinsettias at the bottom.

I hope you like it.  Won't you join in on this challenge.  Hey, Christmas is coming faster than you think!  Please add CCEE1639 to your keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to the CCEE blog here.

Have a fun, creative day!

CCEE1637, Dies Only

Lois carries on as hostess this  month.  She says to make a card with no stamping....just die cuts.  Hope the sentiments don't count!  Challenge Police?

Susie Australia made this card back on July 1st and I fell in love with it.  I made mine for Laynee's 9th birthday...think she'll get a kick out of it!

Here's Susie's (thanks for the inspiration, Susie!)

Does Susie win the "most creative pereson evah" award!!!  She is such the wonderful artist.  Who would think of making a Crazy Bird into a fish!!!

How about joining us and showing us your "dies only" card!  If posting on splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1637 to your keywords!

CCEE1636, W-O-R-D

For her second challenge this month, Lois says:

"I think most kids are back in school by now.  So, let's have a Word Challenge--the word being WORD.  Include something on your card that begins with each of the letters in W-O-R-D."

I decided to double challenge myself and see if I could incorporate all four letters in one image.  I did it.

W - Woods
O - Owl
R - Ringless Honey Mushrooms - not the ones on the tree, but the little circular ones between the trees to the left of the deer.
D - deer

I love this image; think it makes such a wonderful masculine card....specially for a hunter!

Come on and join in on the fun.  If you post on splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1336 to the keywords.   And link back to the CCEE blog here.
