This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 408 - Inchie on a Twinchie and today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 201 - Inspiration from a Photo.
I used a retired set called Holiday Blocks for my inchie stamped in riding hood red. I cut it out and matted on kiwi kiss them on a 2 inch square of riding hood red cs. My white cs base was scored around the 2 inch block. I stamped the sentiment in old olive ink. I used some stickles on the lines of the silver bell after coloring with copic C3.

Trust God

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 405 - Soft Saffron Breeze and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 200 - Inspired by Fabric.
I embossed the Baja breeze panel left side only using an M-Bossability folder and can not remember the name of it. I cut embossed and sponged the leaves and pine cone using Nestability Fall Follage dies sponged with soft suede. The Baja breeze panel is divided with a strip of soft suede topped with some ribbon then I stamped the sentiment in soft suede.
Hope you like it. My stamping therapy time has been SO limited lately. I need a vacation so I can stamp, LOL.

Snow Globe Snowman

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 404 - Misty Cherry Espresso, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 406 - Make A Snowman, and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 199 - Sketch. My base is vanilla and is stamped in the center with the snowflake from the Snow Globe retired SU set using marina mist ink.
I stamped the snow globe image in espresso ink then colored the base with copics and cut a top for the top of the hat out of early espresso cs. I matted my focal panel with early espresso cs then popped it up on dimensionals. I used some google eyes, buttons and ribbon for the face. I used some dp for the panel across the bottom and tied 2 strips of ribbon.
Hope you like it, now off to work I go.
