MFP Stamps Challenge #26 - Color Challenge - White

 
 
The challenge at MFP Stamps blog this week is to use white as the main color.  For my card, I used a Maryanne Designs embossing folder and layered a black panel behind it.  The flower image is from the MFP Stamp Shop Great Flowers stamp set and the sentiment is from the Sayings Galore stamp set.  The flower was colored using Copic Markers and Glossy Accents brushed on it to give it some shine.
 
We hope you'll share your cards and/or projects using white as the main color with us this week.  You can find the challenge HERE.

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Coffee is ALWAYS Better with a Friend!

 
 
 
The Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop ends later today.  For my final summer entry I created a gift card holder.  The stamp is from Latina Crafters called Coffee is better with a Friend.  The base of the holder is a tissue paper tube (aka toilet paper tube).  I used a Gina Marie Designs stitched circle die to die cut the stamped image.  The donut is from PaperStudio Spare Parts Knick Knacks.  Ribbon is from my stash.  A very easy and fun project!
 
The blog hop has been a lot of fun.  There's still time to enter!  Check it out HERE.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Create Your Own Background

 
The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge is to create your own background on your card or project.
 
For my card, I used the PTI Mini Blooms stamp set and the little cat die cut is from Serendipity Stamps Little Critters Dies.  I colored directly on the blooms stamp then spritzed it with water before stamping it onto the watercolor cardstock.  I did a partial distress ink sponging and water spritz at the top of the image panel.
 
We hope you'll create your own background and share your creation with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters.
