Like my card yesterday, the one I made for the last day of the blog hop also was made using an Elizabeth Craft Designs die set, the Oval Pull Card. 


Here's the inside of the card.  To line up the scene on the front with the one on the inside, I first stamped the trees and the fisherman on the inside panel.  Then I mounted the black panel on the front oval, laid a piece of waxed paper over the entire card, then mounted the white oval with removable tape on top of the waxed paper.    Then I could line up the stamps (the trees and the fisherman) and stamp on the front.  The waxed paper protected the underlying panels.  I removed the waxed paper and adhered the white oval permanently on the black oval.


The MFP Stamp Shop sets used on this card were Get Reel and Tree Scene.



Please check out the rest of today's hop.

Today's card is a bit more complicated than my two earlier cards.  I used a die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs called Hot Air Balloon as well as the MFP Stamp Shop set Hot Air Balloon on this card.  Riding in a hot air balloon is one of the things I have crossed off my bucket list.  It was a 50th birthday present from my late husband.


This inside of the card shows how I used the die set.


Here's the stamp set I used.

CCEE1625 - Birds

Vicky Gould continues as hostess for the CCEE Stampers and this week reminds us that she loves birds.  She said, "Let's use birds on our cards this week . . . Crazy Birds, Real Birds, Cartoon Birds . . . whatever trips your trigger!"  I recently bought a pad of tags from K & Company and thought I could use one of the tags as the background for my bird -- a cockatoo.


Check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see what birds the rest of the team used on their cards this week.

I used a trifold on my card today.  I think it's the first time I ever used this particular technique.

CCEE1624 - Birthday

Today is Vicky Gould's sister's birthday, so she asked the CCEE Stampers to make a birthday card.  We all need birthday cards, so this challenge was no challenge at all!


Stop over at the CCEE Stampers blog and see some more birthday cards.

CCEE1623 Donald Duck Day

Vicky tells the CCEE Stampers that Donald Duck has been around since 1934.  She invited us to celebrate Donald by using a duck -- real or imaginary -- on our card.  I didn't use Donald, so I didn't get any extra points for this week's challenge. 


Stop over at the CCEE Stampers blog to see if any one of the team used Donald on her card.
