Crazy4Challenges AND Speedy's Friends

The sponsor for this week's Crazy4Challenges challenge this week is Paper Pretties.  The team was lucky enough to be offered some digi stamps to work with.  This digi stamp is called  Pink or Blue.  Our challenge this week was to use die cuts.  Well, I did use my Spellbinders to die cut and emboss the main image.  I then created diecut hearts with both Spellbinders and a Martha Stewart heart punch.  I also played around with lace and ribbon quite a bit, as well as with a Martha Stewart border punch.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the background, and added a few rhinestones here and there.

Now be sure to visit the Crazies Blog to see the creations of the rest of this dynamic team.



The Speedy's Friends' Challenge this week was to use the color combo of red, black, and white.  Well, since that is my fav color combo, this was an easy one for me.  I used the new Greet the Day with Gerber set, heat embossing it on red with white embossing powder.  I also used ribbon (MFP), Spellbinders Labels die, Martha Stewart border punch, and my piercing tools.  A rather simple card.....yet sure to brighten someone's day if they are ill.

Now be sure to stop in at the MFP/Speedy's Friends Blog to view the fabulous creations of the rest of the team.
