Clean sheep...

The base card is cream textured card stock with a layer of gold card stock and then black card stock as per the sketch.
The top layer is a piece of patterned paper with clean sheep on it.
The verse from Taylored Expressions "Knit Wit" set is stamped to another piece of the cream textured card stock with StazOn jet black ink.
Two of the corners are rounded with a corner rounder then  piece of black card stock applied to the back with the same corners rounded.
At this point it is glued to the front of the card as per the sketch.

Grey and green...

...who knew?

The base card is white linen card stock that I folded in half and using the JoAnn's Buttercream Laser Stencil and Distress hickory smoke ink, I sponged the front of the card.
I trimmed the bottom two circles to match the white edge around.
One the inside bottom of the card I sponged a line of Distress peeled paint ink.
On a separate piece of white linen card stock I stamped the verse from Wordsworth stamps using Distress hickory smoke ink, trimmed out a strip and applied it to the front of the card.
On yet another piece of white linen, I actually only used one 8" x 11" piece in total, I sponged the Distress peeled paint then die cut the butterflies by Verve stamps "All Aflutter".
On one half of the butterflies I used glossy silver Wink of Stella.
I applied them to the front of the card and to finish I applied dots down the center with white Nuvo drops!

Having a friend over to quilt in an over sized chair...

...that's the kind of invitation I love to send out!

The base card is cream card stock.
The chair from Impression Obsessions's CL467 Have a Seat was stamped on the base card using StazOn timber brown ink.
Also I stamped the chair using the same ink on a piece of patterned paper and then cut it out to glue it to the chair on the card front.
The set also has the verse I stamped using the same ink.
The coloring was done with Prisma pencils.

Luckily Mr. Holtz released the Distress Oxides I needed for this challenge...

It all started when I opened my email this morning and found the link below...

That lead me to find my Impression Obsession set "Smile" and it's coordinating die.
The base card is cream card stock.
Using my Misti I stamped the verse using Distress Oxide wilted violet ink.
I cut out a mask using the die and placed it over the dried word.
Using Impression Obsessions "watercolor wildflowers" and Distress inks spiced marmalade, fossilized amber and lucky clover I stamped the flowers to the card.
After removing the mask I used the splatters stamp by Recollections with Distress Oxide wilted violet to apply the splatters.
I finished the card by sponging around the edge with Distress Oxide spiced marmalade.

This is a three challenge card...

2017 fall hop
The base card is brown textured paper.
I turned the sketch on it's side and added the Tim Holtz's "On The Go" embossing folder kraft card stock pieces to match the sketch.
The Professor (Paper Smooches "great chemistry") was stamped onto cream textured card stock with StazOn jet black ink as well as the cup (Paper Smooches "healthy vibes).
The verse on the outside of the cup is from Fiskars coffee/tea set and stamped with the StazOn.
The coloring was done with Prisma pencils, using Autumn colors, and then he was trimmed out and glued to the front of the card.
