Color Challenge this week.

It;s that time at MFP Stamp Challenge this week
. It is a color challenge and the color is PINK
a project with lots of pink can also use neutrals white and black. Mine is pretty simple today. 
A dotted swiss embossed stripe with a Spellbinder design down the center.
 The teacup and sentiment is from the Relax A Bit Set.I added silver to the edges
 of the cup lip and the design down the side however 
I see it looks like some smeary stuff
. Well it is what it is not redoing it!

Inspiration Photo

Happy Saturday, it is time for a new MFP Stamp Challenge and it is photo inspired!

Our inspiration photo has many different possibilities

The black white and lime really jumped out at me so thats my choice.
 I cut all the pieces in several different colors trying to decide what worked best, 
so here is my take.
Decided on a black background and then added the green layer cut
with a Spellbinder I think its called Radiant Rectangles.
Then some white and black layers. The bottom
stripe is a piece of Washi Tape.
The flower is from the Gardenia Set
and sentiment is from the  Dogwood Set.

Tuesday Throwdown Sketch

Today we are using a Sketch for our Challenge.

Our Sponsor is Lacy Sunshine and I am using the Pickles Mad Hatter Tea Party

Isn't this image the most fun, it made me laugh, a frog at the Mad Hatter! 
So after coloring the image
I matted it and everything else in black. A left over piece of dp
blended with the image and a piece of recycled See's candy wrapper
 for the black & white. I used a Stampin UP die to cut the scalloped piece
 and them dry embossed. 
The black resin dots were perfect for the three embellies. 
Be sure to stopover at Tuesday Throwdown to see
my teamies creations and you will want to stop over at 
Lacy Sunshine to see all of her great Stamps and Digis!

Challenge # 37

Today at MFP Stamp Challenge is Technique Week....Twine wrapped block.
 I used a small square stamp as my block as I didnt have a acrylic block and it 
worked fine.First added random color to my card then
 stamped with the string alternating directions on each row
 and then dry embossed with the dots.
. Using the Pansy image from the 
Today Tomorrow and Always Set.

 I stamped and colored them then cut them apart to add to the oval.
 The sentiment is from the Friends Set.
It is always fun to try something new and find 
all the different ways you can do it. My talented teammates
 got creative with this one so stop 
over and check out the great inspiration they have for you.
Looking forward to seeing all of your ideas and creations too!

Happy Birthday!!

Sadly today is my last week as guest at City Crafter's
I have had a great time joining in with this talented
 group of ladies, thanks so much for having me!! 
So today we are challenging you to make a birthday card. I have used a Poppy Power
 image from their Short Stack Set. I love these fun cups stacked and the sweet bird.
I first embossed the card base with a Dotted Swiss Folder, then colored my image.
 After coloring I added dimension paint  to the cups then 
matted it on a Scalloped Spellbinder Rectangle. 
The Sentiment is from the same set repeatedly stamped and
 a Stampin Up border die added. A little string and sequins for a bit of embellie. 
We would love to have you join in the fun this week***

Color Challenge

Happy Saturday !  Want to say sorry I havent been around commenting but I have had 
a two week bout with EXtreme Vertigo and It's been a crazy ride.Couldnt sit up or stand.
 Im a bit wobbly but at least upright and praying that it will soon be gone!
 I will show great compassion to anyone who suffers from this horrible stuff! 

So anyway on to the challenge. Here at Marks Finest Papers our challenge this
 week is to use the color orange. Now this is certainly Not my favorite color but actually
 wasnt as hard as I thought it would be. I found some Stampin Up paper and started from there
. I have used  pretty  image from the Roses Set,  colored it
 orange and mounted on some vellum..
 Some lace a little die cut and sentiment finish it.
 So take the plunge and try using
 orange, we would love to have you join us!!
