MFP Stamps Challenge 40

Good morning!  It's time for a new MFP Stamps challenge.  This week is another Clean And Simple challenge (my favorite) and it's CAS with a bird.  

I pulled this little cutie from Birds and Trees.  Of course the sentiment came from the same set.  I stamped my bird on my card base.  Then I created a mask for the bird and sponged in my yellow background.  Next I colored my bird and stamped in my sentiment.  As I reached for my cup of coffee (yes, I live dangerously with coffee near my stamping projects), I knocked the pink gems off my spinning rack.  I thought that the universe must be telling my something and so I applied five of those little buggers right on my card.

You will want to play along with this week's challenge, right?  There are many ways to win.  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 and Trees (MFP); Paper: Snow Storm Smooth (MFP); Ink: Tuxedo Black, Wild Honey; Accessories: Corner Chomper, Copic Markers, Kaisercraft Hot Pink Rhinestones, stampin' sponges.

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.
