Monday Morning Make Up

Good morning everyone and welcome to another make up Monday!!! I have several cards to show you today that I made for challenges last week but didn't have time to upoad to my blog.
This is my submission for Unity's Bachelor Bro Challenge week 2. We were to use something shiny or glittery, one sheet of patterned paper, two buttons, and Unity Stamps. I used glitter on the Unity Owl and shiny rhinestones, glitter patterned paper from K&Co., two buttons, and I added glitter on the wood flourish by Kaiser. All the images are from Unity's June KOM and Bevy of Butterflies set. The owl was stamped twice and one was cutout, colored, glittered, and popped up on dimensionals. One of the rhinestones was glued to the top of a button for a little extra glam.
Stamps: Unity June KOM, Unity Bevy of Butterflies
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, K&Co. dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Glitter, Wood Flourish, Copics, Ribbon, Two buttons, Two Rhinestones, Brown Twine, Dimensionals

I made this card Saturday for the Inspiration challenge on Splitcoast. Stef found a wonderful on line store called Pajama Squad for us to find inspiration.
I found my inspiration in the Bird Love Print...loved the colors, images, and the white matting with the vanilla based image. The Rubbernecker Wildflowers were colored with copics and half pearls and Dew Drops were added to the centers. A Stampin Up! die cut was used for the birds and the Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages sentiment and ribbon tabs finish it off.
Stamps: Rubbernecker Wildflowers set #465, Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages
Paper: Whisper White, Vanilla, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Copics, SU die cut, Half Pearls, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Dew Drops

This card was made Friday for the Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast. We were to use three things in our design: S-O-S.

My SOS card contains: S - Sewing, O - round pearls for the O shape, S - Snowflakes. The Serene Snowflakes were stampes with Versamark, embossed with clear ep, and a white crayon was used to color in the open areas on the big snowflake. Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red were sponged over the snowflakes and then it was misted with Perfect Pearls and water and dried with the heat tool. Whoohoo, Charlene...I finished my crayon resist for your DDC challenge!!!! I'm only 2 weeks late but who's counting!!! You can see all the DDC cards here. The sentiment is from Snowflake Serenade by Papertrey Ink and the shear ribbon from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Store.
Stamps: Serene Snowflakes, Snowflake Serenade
Paper: White, Real Red, Stampin Up! dp
Ink: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Shear Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Heat Tool, Silver Pearls, Nestabilities, Clear ep, White Crayon, Dimensionals

I made this card Wednesday for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. It's also for a very special tea party.
Since our famous Tea Pot Tuesday leader took a much needed break, Marilynn thought it would be a good idea to have a tea party for Ms. Mudder. I'm not sure where we are going but where ever it is, the critters on this sweet Stampavie are ready!!!! Thanks for all the Tuesday fun, Cindy....hope our little shower brings you a smile, sweet friend!!!
