Mushroom & Dreams

Hi there!

I've got a couple of challenge cards to share today.  First up is for Freshly Made Sketches.  I finally broke out these Essentials by Ellen stamps and did some layered stamping to get some shading on the mushroom.  The sentiment is hard to read but it's a worthy pun - Thank you so mush!  Love it!  The paper is ancient Basic Grey paper and I added a few little Crystal Drops as accents.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Lucky 12x12) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (All from Snailed It) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Blush, Rouge, Crimson, Velvet, Sand Dune, Rocky Shore, Mocha) Altenew
Die:  (Zig Zag Stitched Oval) My Favourite Things
Glitter:  (Nuvo Ebony Crystal Drops) Tonic
Glitter:  (Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss) Tonic

Next is a card inspired by Tracey's gorgeous design at Muse.  The flower and leaves are from the same EBE set as above and I paired them with a Neat & Tangled sentiment.  I paper pieced the banner part of the sentiment to make it pop a bit more.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Rose Red) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower & leaves from Snailed It) Essential by Ellen, (Sentiment from Dreams) Neat & Tangled
Inks:  (VersaFine) Tsukineko, (Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, Bamboo, Parrot, Olive) Altenew
Gems:  Recollections

Just thinking about the weather where you are makes we feel warmer. Anything but spring here, 8" of snow yesterday after only a week ago I was waiting for my tulips to spring up. Love that sweet mushroom and sentiment and pretty flowers and sentiment for this weeks Muse. Thank you for sharing with us at Muse this week!

Two more cards. You've been busy, Jen. Love the mushroom and of course you had to use a pun for the sentiment. ;) That strip of paper is wonderful.
