Supplies: Stampendous stamps, Studio G sentiment, Faith papers by Paper Studio, $1 star punch, Cuttlebug frame EF, Cheery Lynn branch die - purchased at Joan's Gardens.
The challenge at Joan's Gardens is to include paper piecing. She has a link to a video on piecing a die. I did not have a suitable die, but tried to replicate the technique with this stamp. You may not be able to see it, but the palm branches are two layers - for a bit of the second color and also more dimension.
I did the same with the shepherd's crook. For the tree, I cut a lighter green piece - sort of cutting outside the lines. Then I stamped on a darker green, cutting inside the lines. This gives a sense of a few lighter fronds - our palm trees have different shades of green. I also pieced the shepherds robes - and decided to make it look light the one on the left is facing the other way. For the MFP challenge I used a second stamp to do the sheep on the left - the Stampendous clear stamp set has 3 images and a sentiment. I used 2 of the images.
Recipe (1 die (branch), 2 images (see above), 3 colors (red, green, beige):

The image is from Beccy's Place. She used it for a sample - it has lovely highlights that I was not able to duplicate - I tried chalk. The bird and branches are Cheery Lynn dies from Joan's Gardens.

These chickens are so cute! It seems to me they are enjoying the end of summer - dressed to the nines as well! I used some scraps of dp, a tiny punch, vanilla half pearls, and Prismas.

At any rate, here is one of the cards I worked on during that time. The image is from my printed stash of digis - now I cannot locate it in my file so I do not have the artist's name. Does anyone recognize it? She is colored with some Prismas but also with shiny metallic pens - especially the boors, flowers and watering can.

Selecting this card also gave me a chance to try what I would call a "shabby chic" style - though maybe that is not the best term for a masculine card. I used this cute turtle and funny saying - from my Wish RAK stash, so I am not sure where it came from. This Paper Studio dp has leaves - more masculine - in colors that work well with Kraft. I used a Memory Box stamp on some kraft, and then used the same stamp to edge the image - though I used a bit more than I should have. The turtle is colored with a chalk pencil I added twine, washi tape, an arrow by Basic Grey, pine branches by Cheery Lynn, and another sentiment.
Whew! I finished with plenty of time to get ready for church!
