3 cards today, 3 challenges

Sherrod Studio Ella set has so many wonderful images that can be used for a variety of projects (stayed tuned for new fall releases happening next week.....!) This grouping of presents worked well for my christmas card. I tried a new technique called stained glass. You stamp on vellum with versamark and melt EP on your image. The star tree from SU! Peace on Earth set worked wonderfully! Turn over your vellum and color in from the back. Turn back over and you have the look of stained glass! I just have to work on that excess powder that sticks to everything! The DP comes from ARound the Block.
I just love my new DCWV stack called Green Stack!!!! They are 4.5x6.5 and work great for the larger cards (which i have been doing lately for the embellies i am now using!). Chipboard letters, nesties for the frame (which is the sketch challenge over this week at Unscripted Sketches #16), misc ribbon that I picked up today at a thrift store and bobunny rubon. Love Love Love (did i tell you i love this new paper stack!) It!
Finally, this card (5x5) is for the Cupcake Challenge #50- to use green, pink and brown, animals and flowers. Yup, got all of the above. The papers are a mixed batch that I ordered from Taylor Expressions (some basic grey, mme, etc...) Misc ribbon and small primas (that I am desperately trying to use up.....they are like rabbits and multiply in my bag LOL!) I wasn't too happy with the coloring of the monkey (jsut a clear stamp) so I sprinkled on some glitter and Viola! The girls thought this card was A-DOOR-A-BALL, and are laying claim to it for the future! yah mom!

see you tomorrow (don't forget to stop by next week August 7-10th for the sneak peeks of the sherrod studio new releases! we will be doing a challenge and Kim is giving away a new stamp set!)
