Jessie's Birthday Card

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 579 - I Lost my Honey in a Gray Lagoon, Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 373 - It's About Birthdays and Monday's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 444.
My darling hubby will be celebrating a birthday in August and as I put this together it just screamed for him so I went on and wrote his name on the envelope so I wouldn't change my mind later. LOL.
I used some dp from MME - Home stack for the 3 panels and unusual for me I used the basic gray cs for my card base. I usually use either white or vanilla since they are in more abundance and easier to restock.
I used white on the inside so I could stamp the sentiment and stamped in lost lagoon the Birthday Innies sentiment from sweet-n-sassy stamps.  I love this sentiment and can not believe it is the first time I have used it.  On the envelope I used the balloon stamp from Favorite Teddy Stampin Up set in hello honey ink. 
I lost my SU demonstrator and have to find a new one. I also thought I had lost my mojo since a month had past and I just could NOT get inspired by the challenges. Still not sure I ever had any mojo but gave it a shot today anyway. Hope you like it.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Favorite Teddy, Birthday Innies, SNS, 
Paper: White, basic gray, My Minds Eye - Home, hello honey, lost lagoon 
Ink: hello honey, lost lagoon 
Accessories: HB Die - Impression Obsession 
Techniques: CAS, 3D, die cuts

Smackin' Essence of Love

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 584. My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 574 - Crisp Sahara Cake. I used Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 577 - Smackin' Acetate for my left sided panel and heat embossed the image after stamping in versa mark. On the envelope and inside of the card I stamped the small butterfly in crisp cantaloupe both front and inside for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 368 - Spring Critters.
I also stamped in sahara sand on the inside a sentiment from Blessings from Heaven.
I am so having trouble with this computer or my internet connection as it took 30min just to edit the front view pic. I will keep working to edit the inside and load it as well. I hate time restrictions but that is what happens when you have to work to earn more money to buy more stuff. LOL

Flight of the Spring Butterfly

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 577 - Smackin' Acestate following the tutorial found HERE I used so saffron, marina mist and pistachio pudding markers on my acetate, misted then pressed it onto white cs. And for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 368 - Spring Critters I inked up the solid image with crushed curry, island indigo and wild wasabi markers, huffed and stamped over my smackin' acetate section. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig for placement to stamp the floral section after inking with island indigo. I chose a butterfly as my cute spring critter. I always love to see them and the birds return in the spring.
For the inside and envelope I used so saffron and island indigo inks.

Because I Care I Made this for you

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 581 and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 571 - Wonderful Party with Pizzazz and for dessert - flowers. Well I think I covered them both.

Do you know someone or are you one of those type of people, like myself, who just can not leave well enough alone? I was just not satisfied with just the flower on the inside so I stamped the sentiment in pear pizzazz over the stem. MISTAKE that can not be fixed. Oh Well. I have to go to work now so I can afford to stamp another day. LOL

In My thoughts with Hope

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 570 - Honey and Cherry Meadows, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 573 - Revisiting Emboss Resist, and Monday's MOJO MONDAY'S SKETCH CHALLENGE # 435.
I have been MIA all week last week sick with sinus junk and just not feeling well enough to play and I think it is coming back for round 2 but I wanted to make something today. It started as a sympathy card and turning into encouragement for a co-worker who has worked hard all of her life and just at the peak of her career she goes and has a major stroke leaving her child-like in mentality. Such a sad situation as she was the breadwinner for her family. There is still hope that her faculties might return but not back where they were. The white embossed trees are a sign of winter when the leaves die off and the branches are bare. The mossy meadow tree popped up is the hope of the future that ins the spring the leaves and branches come back to life again. 
Off to work I go.
I stamped the single tree on the inside after stamping off 2 times then the sentiment on top of the tree.  I hope she likes it.
RECIPE:
Stamps: In My Thoughts, Lovely as a Tree, Word on Word 
Paper: White, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Bo Bunny-Forever Fall dp

Trust God Anniversary

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 578. My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 568 - Saffron Gray Sky. I used a technique called INK, SPRAY, AND SMASH for my focal panel and found out the hard way it is NOT easy to heat emboss on glossy white cs. I stamped the flower and sentiment in versa mark then added some black embossing powder and heat embossed. Did you know glossy paper will bubble up if you hold the heat tool on it too long? LOL oh well. Next time I will just stamp the sentiment in black ink. The flower was ok but the sentiment sorta smudged in some places. This attempt was for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 571 - Naked Stamping Shannon aka (e3stamper) celebrated her 14th Anniversary on Tuesday and we get together Sunday to actually celebrate so this will be their card.
On the inside I stamped Happy Anniversary sentiment.  Hope she likes it.

I had to use my smoke slate marker to color some white ribbon. This is matted on soft sky then white card base. I did stamp on the inside but something happened to my pic and short of time no time to go back upstairs and retake it.

Sweet Talkin' Valentine Card

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 570 - Dry Embossing with Stencils, today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 361 - Sweet Treats, and today's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 432. I am backing up a couple of weeks and using COLOR CHALLENGE # 565 - What's black and white and red all over? for my color combo.
I tried embossing with my cuttlebug and almost broke a plate and ruined my embossing folder that had 4 different patterns. I was able to save my heart section so I went to my light box. If a hidden camera was around it would be a riot. I have not used my night light in such a long time. It took me forever to remember what and how to dry emboss then I could not remember where my stylet tool was.
Awe finally it all came together. It was a site only my friends at SCS could appreciate. LOL. Now off to work.

My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 565 - What's Black and White and Red all over?". How could I resist making a valentine card with these colors in this weeks challenge?

I dry embossed the Darice Hearts diagonal embossing folder on white and matted it on the white cs base then cut the heart from some real red cs. I popped up the black ribbon under the LOVE sentiment cut from black cs.

It is small but the message is mighty and will work very well on a friend's desk that I give to.
