First up, the Mojo Monday Challenge (my first)
Moody for Reading. I love the Moody line of images from that company. This image is just my style. I love the big scarf, the cute casual bag and her adorable hat. I printed her out with a laser printer and colored her in with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Life is Good set. The sketch is from the Mojo Monday challenge.
Next up is a combination of two challenges: JUGS 66 and StampTV Release Challenge #3
The JUGS challenge was to make a card and matching envelope with a liner. Above is the card with matching envelope and below is the envelope with the embossed liner to match. I used my favorite Mugs and Kisses set to make the fun embossed turquoise mug. The sentiment is from Grand Damask. The StampTV challenge was to use something new. I used the cute little flower charm that I purchased recently in a set with some other cute little charms.
StampTV challenge was to use the color combination of Turquoise, Chocolate and Kraft. I stamped the main panel with Vivid Aqua on Kraft using the large stamp from Wild at Heart. I did some stitching on this one too. I love sewing on cards and don't do it nearly enough. I sponged the embossed panels to bring out the design and make a bit more aged looking. There is also a lot of pearly bling on this one. A strip of white on the ribbon, a strip of brown on the sentiment panel and lots of small white and brown pearls in the center of the flowers.
My final card to share in this post is for the Card Patterns sketch 97
Mugs and Kisses. I added some clear glaze over the coffee to make it a bit more realistic. I was inspired by some of the images over on the Moxie Fab blog with gray and decided to play around with some old Going Gray from my stash (I wish Stampin' Up had not discontinued that color). It's mixed with Turquoise and Green Apple.
Well, that's it for tonight. I may stamp a bit more before heading to bed. I found out earlier today our apartment building does not have hot water and they have to wait until tomorrow morning to fix it. So I am hoping I can get a shower before going to work tomorrow.
