A few challenge projects

Hi gals,
Well I got a chance to do some playing along with a couple of challenges so I have several cards to post. Not a ton of detail cause I'm ready for bed now.

First up - Joan's Garden -Joan is hosting a new weekly challenge so I wanted to try and play along this time. We were to use any Just Rite floral stamp set and to use pink, green and yellow. So here's my card:

I used the Plant a Little Love set from JR. It's beautiful and I love the large size! I colored with copics and did a second layer which I cut out and popped up for some dimension. I added a little yello-green glitter to the flower centers, used some tiny pink rhinestones around the scallop and larger rhinestones on the corners. The DP is Lemonade from Basic Grey.

Here's a closer look:

Next up - A joint effort card from Selma Stevenson and me... when Selma and I returned from Joan's workshop we had a little time to play. Selma created this card and I finished it up (heh - all I did was add ribbon and the large flowers). But I was able to send it to my DD in Germany just to let her know I'm thinking about her - her last visit home got cancelled because of that volcano in Iceland.  Check out how Selam makes the fabulous vellum flowers. Here tutorial is HERE.

I also had a chance to get back over to Stamp TV for a couple of quick challenges. First up is this week's color challenge - Pink, Orange and Green.  SERIOUSLY? Oh boy now this is what I call a challenge - BUT I think I got it... and here it is...

I used the Spring Florals set from Gina K Designs - masked and stamped 3 sets of these fun flowers. Colord some pink and some orange.  Nestie matted with the Large scallop oval and then added another mat of green. Some CB embossing and a MS punch - ribbon and sentiment. All done!

Here's the inside - super fun to carry through the flowers...

Last up - one more Stamp TV challenge - to make a Christmas card and let the sentiment be the main focus of the card.  Here's my simple card for this one.

Stamps are from Gina K. I added a little bit of Eskimo Kisses DP and used the sketch from Waltzingmouse Stamps again.

I added another senti to the inside:

Whew - ok I'm officially tired now - I think I was in my stamp studio for a good three hours!
Thanks for popping in - do you have a favorite from these? I'd love to know which one if you do.

Have a great rest of your weekend.
Hugs n Smiles,
