Thoughts and Prayers Pop Up Diorama

I decided to try a pop up diorama flipped on its side and with ovals. It works. LOL.
I used one of my all time favorite sympathy sets and inked up the flower with SU coordinating markers then huffed and stamped on white. I used the punched out oval on the inside of the card to layer the sentiment.
Hope you like it. This will be it for me until Monday as I have to be up at 4am to work the rest of the week :(

Lottus Spring Blossoms Pop Up Diorama

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 519 - Blackberries and Pears Poolside, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 522 - Pop Up Diorama, and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #313 - Think Spring. I decided to add my pop up at the bottom, you know I have to be backwords right? LOL. I love this new stamp set from Stampin Up. I stamped of twice for the 1st solid image, once for the next layer and direct stamping for the 3rd part of the image. After looking at the sentiment and taking a pic I decided to replace the dots on the sentiment with bling. Hope you like it.

Love you in Numbers

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 521 - Negative & Positive, and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 312 - Age is just a number. This card started as also including today's Mojo Sketch but I failed at it so took a slight turn and still not sure I like the end result. I cut and embossed the solid red heart using both dies then cut out the pink heart and sponged with the die in place using cherry cobbler ink. I glued the removed sections out to the cherry cobbler heart and popped it up over the negative cut and sponged heart.
My sentiment was cut from Ginger alphabet form Quickutz, I used the 7 for the L , zero for the O, V for the V, and 3 for the E.
Hope you like it better than I do.

Jessie - My Anchor, My Love

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 527, Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 517 - A Cabana in Old Bermuda and Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 520 - Embossing Folder Stamping. Such a fun technique, lovely color combo and the sketch just worked perfect for me today.
I used a new embossing folder ,Anchor, from the Paper Studio to ink the negative side by daubers on the ink pads of all three colors. The 2 blues are so close in color it was hard to see where one stopped and the other started, :( of well. I stamped the sentiment in momento tuxedo black in the open top left corner. The white anchor cut from a die is popped up on dimensionals. I think this will be for my dear hubby who is my anchor. He keeps me grounded and I love him so much. LOL.

My mood did not show well enough so I popped it up on dimensionals along with my double layered hearts. I embossed the melon mambo base with a heart EF and the white vellum with the border heart EF with a strip of pink pirouette under it. Hope you like it.

Love Down Under

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 516 - Pink or White Melons, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 519 - Sentiment Down Under, and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENG3 # 310 - Love Is In The Air. Well this is what happens when you can not sleep, you look, you have a thought and you TRY to execute it. Not real happy with how it turned out but it is what it is. I may try something else if I ever get to sleep and wake up later. I just bought this embossing folder today at Joanne's. The name escapes me and I am downstairs trying not to wake the dh by going back upstairs to see the name. Will add later this morning. I embossed the folder on white then brushed melon mambo across the raised portions and matted on melon mambo and added some bling. I used some pink pirouette underneath and stamped the sentiment in melon mambo.
