CCEE1416 – What Movie

savingMrBanksajh

Time for another CCEE Stampers challenge!

This week Kathy Bradley has asked us to Make a card that reflects your very favorite movie or movie star.  Don't forget to identify the movie and/or star!

I thought this was going to be a tough challenge as I was thinking what stamps do I have that I could combine with a movie? Talk about brainstorming! Then it hit me… I have a Sweet ‘n Sassy set that would work perfectly for my newest favorite movie…. that I won’t tell you just yet… let’s see if you can figure it out from my card first.

Colored the image with copics and did a little paper piecing for her dress and kite. Used white gel pen for the trim on her dress. Pulled out my cloud stencil for the sky.

So did you figure out what movie? “Saving Mr.Banks”, to me this image represents the part in the movie when she realizes “Mr.Banks” fixed the kite and she finally “breaks”. Of course I am always in tears at this spot. Love, love, love the movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it for the entire family.

Make sure you head over to the CCEE Stampers blog to see what the movies/actors the rest of the team have been inspired by.

Masculine Grad Card – PWC306

masculinegrad

This week’s  challenge over at Paper Pretties is Masculine Cards.

Graduation will be here before I know it so I decided to make a masculine graduation card. But instead of using an image, I used Inspirational Quotes for my card. Pulled out some masculine colored papers and some brads and went to work. Sentiment is on dimensions. (background and sentiment paper is cream colored)

CCEE1415 - Bunny or Egg

hoppyeasterajh

Time for another CCEE Stampers challenge. “The Easter Bunny is coming to town on April 20th, so this week Kathy Bradley has challenged us to  make a card using a bunny or an egg – or both if you like!”

I pulled out “Hoppy Easter” from North Coast Creations for my card. I had the image all colored when I completely changed my mind 360 degrees! I went with just embossing the image in white! No color at all on the image and I love how it looks. Stamped the sentiment and sponged around it in same ink. To add a little color, I went with the layer underneath and a “pop” of the button.

PWC303 Me Heartie

mematey

Time for another Paper Pretties challenge. This week is Paper Piercing.

I used Pirate Cooper for my card. Colored him with copics. Paper pierced around just the oval for a change and added some pirate brads. Found some Halloween paper that worked perfectly for a pirate! Cut sentiment apart to make it fit in the space.
