MFP Stamps Challenge - Turquoise Color Challenge

 
 
This week's MFP Stamps Challenge is a color challenge to use Turquoise.  Can also use white, black, and one other color.
 
For my card I used the MFP Stamps Shop Shello stamp set.  I sponged Tempting Turquoise ink on the die cut circle then stamped the sea turtle image, used a mask of the turtle and stamped the sea grass so it appears behind the turtle image.  I also did a little water splatter on the circle and used sequins to embellish my card.
 
We hope you'll share your Turquoise cards with us this week.  You can find the challenge HERE.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Let's Get In Shape!

 
The challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters is to create a shaped card, exceptions:  no square or rectangle card shapes!
 
For my card, I used the Spellbinders Octagon Dies to cut out my card shape.  I then used the same die to cutout the layering panel that I sponged distress ink to create the sky and sand.  The sentiment is from a MFP Stamp Shop stamp set; the dies are from Impression Obsession.
 
We hope you'll share your shaped cards with us for the Let's Get In Shape! challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  You can find the challenge HERE.

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge - Color Challenge!

 
The Ruby's Rainbow Challenge is to use Red, Green, and white/cream colors.
 
For my card, I used white cardbase, red and green layering panels.  The bright colored panel was created using Yupo paper and red and green Adirondack Alcohol Inks.  The stitched panels were die cut using Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangle dies.  The sentiment banner was cut from banner dies, the butterfly was punched out using a Stampin Up punch.  Sentiment stamp is Stampabilities Celebrate You.
 
We hope you'll share your red, green, white/cream cards with us at Ruby's Rainbow.  You can find the challenge HERE.
