MFP Stamps Challenge 39

Good morning!  I'm sorry for the late post this morning.  Saturday has arrived and brought with it another MFP Stamps challenge.  This week the challenge is a color challenge.  

Pink is the color of choice and I opted for a Christmas card.   I like to make both traditional and non-traditional Christmas cards so this was fun!  I mocked up my card to look like an old school Polaroid picture.  Who remembers shaking those babies?

Let's not forget that there are several of ways to win with the MFP Stamps challenge.  Be sure to check out the blog for rules and guidelines.  Link up your project HERE, so we can see your amazing work. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

MFP Stamps Challenge 38

It's that time again.  It's Saturday and time for another MFP Stamps challenge.  This week the challenge is an inspiration challenge with a couple of photos to work from.  
I'm sure that it is abundantly clear from which photo I drew my inspiration.  I just couldn't resist when we have such a great sports themed stamp set.  I stamped, colored and fussy-cut the footballs and baseballs. Then I pieced together a couple portions of two sentiments to make my greeting here.  

Let's not forget that there are several of ways to win with the MFP Stamps challenge.  Be sure to check out the blog for rules and guidelines.  Link up your project HERE, so we can see your amazing work.

MFP Stamps Challenge 37

Hey again!  It's Saturday and time for a new MFP Stamps Challenge.  This week the challenge revolves around a technique called the Twine Wrapped Block.  I just grabbed one of my acrylic blocks and adhered a short piece of Scor-Tape.  I removed the adhesive backing and then wrapped my twine around it.  I used an emboss resist technique to make my main panel.

I die cut my panel, backed it with a slightly smaller oval and then another panel with the stamped sentiment.  I stamped my crane, colored it, trimmed it and then adhered it to the main panel.  A few rhinestones and some stampin' dimensionals finish off the card.

There are multiple ways to win with the MFP Stamps Challenge.  Be sure to check out the blog for rules and guidelines.  Link up your project HERE, so we can see your amazing work. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Details - Stamps: Birds of the Orient (MFP); Paper: Whisper White, Black Licorice (MFT); Ink: Versamark, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Stamping block, Scor-tape, twine, heat tool, clear embossing powder, paper snips, Copic Markers, Touch Twin Markers, Spellbinders Nestabilities, stampin' sponges, Recollections rhinestones, stampin' dimensionals.

Using Hexagons

Today's Ways to Use It challenge on Splitcoaststampers is all about using hexagons!  I'm not today's hostess, but Sabrina is.  Be sure to check out all of the amazing cards that have been made with hexagons. 

For my card, I stamped the hexagon background first and then sponged the edges of the background.  I hit it with a sentiment and then stamped my butterflies.  I used a technique called thumping.  After inking up the butterflies, I used a darker blue to tap or thump along the edges of the wings.   I matted my focal panel and then laid it against the vanilla card base.  It looked a little too clean, so I sponged the edges of the base too. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Details - Stamps: Honeycomb (Flourishes), Artist in You (Unity), Dandelion Dreams (Skipping Stones Designs); Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip; Ink: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Island Indigo; Accessories: sponge dauber, stampin' dimensionals.
