a day of only stampin' - here's 3 :) woo hoo!

Taking a break, so thought I would post....yes, still in PJ's and lovin life!!!!
These 3 are all for challenges at Gina K.

This one is for the STVPF29 challenge from Melanie.. "out of the lines"...the idea is to go outside of the card perimeters but make sure it still fits in envelope...starting serious Christmas cards and liked this little sign..not sure if its a keeper or not...but always love the mosaic stamp!

Stamps: Inspiration Mosaic, Sign stamps says "Azdi", mini stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Paper: SU Green Galore and dp
Ink: Memento Black
Embellishments: colored sign and mosaic background with Copics, puffy paint for snow, stickles, gold ribbon

This is for the sketch challenge STVSC28 from Tina (keeping you and your family in prayer, Tina)...did my clouds on large piece of card stock and then used it for balloon background also. I staggered my scalloped mats on the balloon and sentiment to give it the feeling of the balloon going higher and higher. Balloon is colored with copics and clear embossed.

Stamps: Gina K's Eclectic and sentiment from Tropical Window
Ink: Memento black, SU Navy
Paper: SU Night of Navy, white and dp (btw, the dp SU stash, it's not gray but a real light blue, it says Mon Ami across the bottom... so I was glad to use it here...dont know I would have ever used it with those words)
Embellishments: Clear Embossing, ribbon

This is for the color challenge STVCC28 by Vicki - I love this combo but instead of stamping, I wanted to try just doing a card with the Cuttlebug. I embossed both card stocks and then cut out the pink a little smaller and mounted on the background. Oh! forgot to say the background grey is GinaK's new Moonlit Fog - love it !! Sponged it very lightly with their new Memento ink - London Fog - love it!!!
Added the ribbons and left the pearls white instead of coloring them pink.

Stamps: sentiment from Wordsworth
Paper: Gina K's Moonlit Fog and Black, SU's Blush Blossom
Ink: Memento London Fog
Embellishments: Ribbon - grey and black, white pearls

ok - now will go post these over at GinaK....then maybe eat (I think DH just got home)...then come back to stampin'......need to finish up my swap cards!

Oh, Happy Day!
Hope you all get a stampin' day this weekend - or doing something that gives you joy! LOL

Linda, These cards are fabulous. Love the Christmas card, it popping off the top is just lovely! Like the other two as well...the hot air balloon one is so cool looking. Well, you have had a fun day, maybe you can take off one day a week for "personal time" :o) (right!)...from the poster above....Hhmm, are you up to something secret? :o) (big ole' grin!)

Linda, these are just fabulous. I love the christmas card. I love how you handled the paremeters of the challenge and added so much dimension. I'm feeling the chilly weather of the holiday season already. You created such great imagery with each card.
