CCEE1422 Number It!

For her last week in May, Frances challenged us  to make a creation including a number or numbers.  We were encouraged to make an aged birthday card, or use number themed designer paper, number themed embossing folders or dies.

Here's mine:

I put Core-dinations black paper into my number embossing folder, and rubbed it with a sanding block.  The image is from Rubbernecker Stamps.  The outside says, "Don't worry!".... and inside it finishes by saying "...I'll never give up your secret."

My Secret Agent is stamped in black, and I couldn't resist some RED to add a little zing.

Please join us, and link  your card HERE .

CCEE1421 Clear Creations

Frances has challenged us this time to create a card or project using acetate.

I chose to make an acetate card.  Here it is:

This is how it looks on the outside, stamped with Stazon ink, and then a stamped sentiment backed with matte silver paper.  I added a punched flower, a popped-up stamped flower and some silver domes. Below is how it looks on the inside, with just the message and a stamped flower.  The backing for the sentiment is on the reverse of the acetate, so no glue shows. 

Pretty neat, huh?

Please join us this week in making a card with acetate.  There are lots of tutorials on Splitcoaststampers to help you.  Then post your card or project on our blog HERE so we can see what you've done.  see you again next week for another challenge.
