Specialty Papers

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to the CCEE Stampers blog. It's time for another fun challenge are you ready to play??

This week our challenge hostess Deb challenged us to make a card using any specialty type of paper. Some possibilities....vellum, acrylic, foil, flocked, metallics...anything beyond the typical cardstock and printed designer papers. (you know, those papers you bought because they were so beautiful and unusual, then put them in a folder and never used...oh wait, that was me). the rest of the materials is up to you, as long as you have some of the specialty paper somewhere on your card.

Sound like a fun challenge!

So are you going to play along this week??? All you have to do is create a card using some type of specialty type paper (vellum, acrylic, foil, flocked, metallics etc). Once you have created your card/project come back here and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword CCEEC. We can't wait to see what you create!

OK now it i s time to check out what the CCEE Stampers created this week.

Everyone did such a great job on their creations. I love this idea of using specialty paper because I think sometimes we get too comfortable with using the same media.

I enjoyed looking at these earlier in the week. So today and last night I got out some special papers. Thanks, Dawn, for the motivation to use my velvet paper and stop just thinking about using it :D.
