It's Your Day!

Greetings everyone! Well as it is Monday it is time for another challenge with my CCEE Stamper friends. This week our challenge is the "Catchy Name Featured Stamper" (CNFS) challenge that we do each month. For this challenge one of us picks a member of SCS who has a catchy name and then we create our card around that name and send out cards to them.

This month our CNFS is Charmwarm! Cammie who is issuing the challenges this month instructed us to create a card that uses a charm. The catch is---no store bought charms---be creative and make your own.

First up I selected this image because it kind of reminded me of the name "Charmwarm" ... blowing kisses seems like a charming or warm thing to do right! The layout for my card is this week's sketch challenge over on SCS which I wanted to play with again ... it is a fun sketch!

For my charm piece I used shrink plastic. I die cut the shrink plastic using a scallop heart nestabilities die. I sponged pink ink around the scallop portion of the heart. I stamped the name "Charmwarm" in the middle of the heart using black ink. Then I used my heat gun to shrink it down to size. I attached my "heart charm" to my card using my tagger gun layering it behind the heart.

Want to play along???? Create your card and then link it on our CCEE Stampers blog, so we can see your card. You can also see the rest of the CCEE Stampers cards if you go to our blog.
