It's Saturday which means the "Crazies" are back with another fun challenge for you all.
Tammy, our challenge hostess finishes off the month with something sweet and tasty!

It’s almost time to put on your costume and head out for Trick or Treat! Incorporate CANDY into your card design today!

It is also with sadness that we say farewell to Tammy today from the C4C Design Team as she has decided to step down to spend more time with her family. It's been a fun working with such an incredibly talented lady!

Well I don't know if I got the challenge I did not make a CARD...but it certainly incorporates candy!! LOL!! I'm making these fun treats for my kids to give to their class!

Here's a close-up of the tags! The images are from SU!

Feel free to join us this week with your 'sweet 
treat' creation! Be sure to link it back at the C4C Blog using the Mr. Linky provided there so we can have a chance to check it out and let you inspire us!!

Hilarious Christmas Cards!

It's Stampalicious Monday over at the Totally Stampalicious Blog and this week we're making SETS of Note Cards! If you'd like to play along just be sure to leave a link back at the TS Blog using the Mr.Linky provided!
With the NEW RELEASE of Margaret and Gus I thought it would be fun to do a TRIO of  humorous CHRISTMAS Cards!!!! I know plenty of people that would get a real kick out of these!!
Now I know Christmas is a time for family, peace, love, friendship and all those other wonderful things, but it can also be stressful and sometimes humor is the antidote!!!

You can find all THREE of these stamp sets at Totally Stampalicious NOW!

C4C110 One Layer Wonder

For the Totally Stampalicious Christmas Release Blog Hop Click HERE!

Happy Saturday!!!
It's time for another fun challenge from Tammy, our Crazy 4 Challenges hostess!!! This week she has creating ONE LAYER CAS Cards!!! We are allowed one cut out image or die-cut embellishment....and hopefully ribbon....'cuz my card needed some ribbon!!! LOL!!!
I did, however, manage to keep it on ONE SINGLE LAYER, which, as some of you might know can be excruciatingly difficult as there is ZERO room for error!!!
 This here is Winterbird Snowman, a BRAND NEW RELEASE from the Totally Stampalicious Bugaboo Line!!

I used a CB folder that I've had for years and I think this might be the first time I've used it!! It didn't quite fit the image but I think it's still OK.!

I have to admit though...I really do LOVE CAS cards!!!! I even enjoy the challenge of a single layer card!!!! 

Well thanks for stoppin' by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee and if you feel like playing along, be sure to link your card back a the C4C Blog using the Mr.Linky provided there!

Hi everyone,

It's Saturday which means the "Crazies" are back with another fun challenge for you all.

Before we get into today's challenge, as this week is a sponsored challenge, we need to introduce this month's sponsor which is Outlines Rubber Stamps. They have lots of fun stamps on there site, so if you haven’t visited them before you might want to head on over there to see their range. Outlines has generously offered a $25 gift certificate for one lucky person who plays this week's challenge.

Now it is time for our challenge, Tammy is back to challenge us all this week. The holiday season is heating up! So our challenge today is to create something for an upcoming holiday and to incorporate heat embossing in your creation!

Here is my creation using this GORGEOUS stamp from Outlines!
I heat embossed it in Silver EP on some CTMH paper! Added a little twine a bell...done! That's the beauty of heat adds so much you really don't need much else!!

And here is another one where I simply flipped it around...that's TWO more Christmas cards done!!
Well that's it from me today!!! We hope you'll play along with us this week for a chance to win a super cool prize from Outlines! Just be sure to head back to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and leave a link to your blog or on-line gallery using the Mr.Linky provided!

It's challenge time at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog and this week our challenge hostess Tammy Hershberger has given us another fun challenge.

Our challenge this week is a .... Recipe Challenge – Use only LEAF images, your card must include a rust or burnt orange color (but is not limited to only this color), only 2 fibers (ribbon, lace, twine, fabric) and only 3 embellishments (but whether you choose to use just 3 embellishments, or 3 different types of embellishments is your call!) No leaf images? Use a plant or flower with leaves image!

I used a leaf from an old SU! set, colored them with Copics and cut them out! Idecided to keep this Clean and Simple and was happy with the results!

If you'd like to play along, be sure to leave a link back at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog using the Mr.Linky provided there!!!

Mad Embossing!

I had such a great weekend of hanging out at home! My kids had friends over so they left me alone to get a little crafting done!!! Lol! I actually got TWO cards done for the Stampalicious Monday EMBOSS IT Challenge!!

This first one uses Fairytale Charlotte! She is from our Sylvia Zet line and I absolutely LOVE Sylvia's unique take on this pretty Princess!! She's so unique!
I used some CTMH papers so that I could make use of the white core cardstock! I lightly sanded the polka dots to really make them stand out!

And here's another creation using Red Hat Stella....featuring my brand new Pennant Punch that my awesome pal, Becky, bought me for my B-day! I used TWO different embossing folders on the background here...I'm pretty happy with the effect!
Well that's it from me today!!! Thanks so much for stopping by for a little Stamps 'n' Coffee!
