Warning - LONG post

Michelle has been stamping!!!! What can I say?! I've been a busy bee this morning.  Sleep might have been preferred, but I think the creations turned out ok... you can probably tell the ones I did BEFORE I went to Starbucks.  The cards are posted in order of the HYCCT challenges, not in the order of their creation.  In any event, enjoy!

The first card for today was to make hand-made embellishments.  Not so sure I did all that swell on this... I made the felt flower, but the rest, not so much.

Stamp Sets: Make a Wish by Taylored Expressions
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Copics: None
Paper: River Rock, Make a Wish Pantry Project Kit by Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Jumbo Button (from Holiday Mini Catalog - can't remember name), Baker's Twine, Felt, Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions (on sale until tomorrow! don't forget the Embellie Gellie!)
Punches: None
Big Shot:
Spellbinders Flower
Challenges Used: HYCCT21

For the next card, I was supposed to use 3 DSP, 2 embellishments, and 1 ribbon.  I used the sketch by Karen Giron for the Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge.  You'll notice there are 3 embellishments - you can't really see the doily transparency in the back, so I added some pearls for good measure.  The challenge didn't say ONLY 2 embellishments.
Stamp Sets: Moments in Bloom by Unity Stamps
Ink: None (used markers)
Copics: Sand Spica
Paper: Confetti Cream, Elegant Eggplant, rest from September Key Ingredient Kit by Taylored Expressions

I decided to go simple on this next card to really feature the bird because Cancer truly IS for the birds!
Stamp Sets: Punch Potpourri, Moments in Bloom by Unity Stamps, Everyday Sentiments by Hero Arts
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Regal Rose
Copics: None
Paper: Baja Breeze, Confetti White, Wild Wasabi Textured

This next card is for the Gettin' Glimmermisted Wit It challenge where you should use spray ink that's sparkly.  I still have no Glimmer Mist... I know, I know, what's wrong with me?! So I used my trusty Smooch Spritz.  I may have to break down and get some Glimmer Mist... maybe a blue... ok, I digress.  The sketch for this card is based on Taylored Expressions sketch for this week.  Just about all of what you see from the Pet's Place Project Pantry Kit - of course I have that, but it's ON SALE until tomorrow, so grab it!  One thing you can't see in the photo - the pearls in the scallops I made to look like little Hershey's kisses... time to dig into the Halloween candy!
Stamp Sets: None, Nada, Nope, not a one!
Ink: Zip here too

The last card for today was to have your only stamped image be a sentiment.... ok, I admit it, this one was pre-Starbucks.  There is seriously a LOT going on with this card - HOLY "STUFF", Batman!  I think my body was taken over by Sankari, because this card is VERY sparkly!!! Since my stamp room was not equipped with Pearls, she had to use Twinkles instead.  In any event, I like this card, except I should have made the blue piece on top smaller - I was going for a cake-looking thing with stacked square panels... maybe the corner chomper, too... oh well, next card!
