I needed a Get Well Card for a very special male this weekend and this week's Sketch & Stamp Challenge was just what I needed for inspiration. Sketch and Stamp 118  http://www.stampingandbloggingblog.com/sb-sketch-stamp-118/

SB118 - 08.22.15 001

Cardstock: Very Vanilla (basic 5½x4¼, 5x3¾ & 2½x2½), Early Espresso (5¼x4 & 2¾x2¾, 5x½), DSP (Adventure Bound Paper Stack 5x¾)                                       Stamps: Guy Greetings, You've Got This     Embossing Folder:Brick Wall                     Ink: Early Espresso.

Stamp the car on the piece of 2½x2½ before you emboss it. Stamp the car again on a piece of scrap very vanilla and emboss it with clear embossing power. Fussy cut the image out and pop it up with dimensionals. I also stamped the car on the envelope.

I love Fall, it's my favorite season. The last few years it hasn't lasted long; shortened by a long summer and an early winter.  My eagerness for Fall has prompted my entry for this week's MoJo Monday Challenge, MoJo Monday #411.

 MoJo 411- 08.17.15

The standard card base is Very Vanilla and the 2nd layer is Chocolate Chip, cut ¼" smaller. I laid Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim topped with Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon on the diagonal.   I added a 3x4½ strip of DSP Paper Stack and a 2¾x2¾ square of Chocolate Chip and a piece of Very Vanilla cut ¼" smaller.  I used the stamp set For All Things  and embellished with Vintage Leaves. I laid strips of Washi tape on a piece of scrap cardstock and punched out an Elegant Butterfly as the final embellishment.

All the products can be purchased in my online store 24/7; just click the button in the upper right corner. If you enjoyed this card be sure to "Like" and sign up/subscribe to be notified of all my posts. I appreciate your comments and support.

I spent the weekend at my sister's celebrating our mother's 92nd birthday but arrived back home in time to submit this card in this week's Sketch and Stamp Challenge.

2015-08-16 08.17.15 Challenge 003   SB117  SB117

Materials & Dimensions  

Cardstock: Crumbcake - 11x4¼, folded at 5½ & 5x 3¾  Chocolate Chip - 5¼x4 & 3¾x2¾  Whisper White - 3½x2½ & 3x5  Inks: Tip Top Taupe,Hello Honey,Tangelo Twist,Rich Razzleberry,Cherry Cobbler,Versa Mark  Stamps: For All Things, Hardwood, Vintage Leaves  Leaflet Framelits, Clear Embossing Powder, Washi Label punch, Thick Baker's Twine

I stamped the smaller piece od Crumbcake with the Hardwood stamp and mounted it on the Chocolate Chip. I randomly burnished all the inks individually on both pieces of Whisper White. I stamped the Vintage Leaves on the larger piece of Whisper White in Chocolate Chip and cut them out with the Leaflet framelits.  I stamped the cut out leaves with Versa Marks, dipped them in Clear Embossing powder and heat embossed them. I stamped "Hello Fall" on a piece of Hello Honey cardstock and cut it out using the Washi Label punch. I then mounted all the layers on the cardstock base. So, what do you think?  What would you do different? I welcome your comments.
