...just a little challenge... Beloved!

Tonight I'm posting a new project, a new tutorial and this new challenge! There's lots to read... grab a coffee and hang out a while!

My Beloved Challenge:

Since I'm so excited about these stamps, this paper, the "Beloved Box" and the completion of my tutorial, what better time to have a challenge!!

Please use my Beloved box as an inspiration for your own valentines gift for a loved one. To play along, use any (or all!) of the following elements in your creation:

  • Watercoloring
  • MFT's Pure Innocence
  • MFT's Bling Bet
  • Beloved Paper from MME
  • Pearls
  • Machine Sewing
To enter, add your creation to my Mr Linky box below. The challenge will be open for one week - entries should be submitted by Sunday, January 17th at 9pm EST. At that time, the Mr Linky widget will close to entries.

I'll pick my top five favorites to share with you, and one lucky winner, selected at random will win three stamp sets: Pure Innocence Fairy Girl, Flower Girl, and My Balloon! I'm also adding a pack of Beloved Paper from My Minds Eye and a $20 Gift Certificate to MFT Stamps! **stay tuned, who knows what else I might add!**

My faves, and the winner will be announced on Monday, January 18th at 9am.

I haven't done any watercoloring in a bit- but I did add some pretty pearls to this card... :)
Maybe I'll get busy on some watercoloring too- thanks again for the inspiration!

Adorable! I don't have any MFT stamps, though, but I will find some pearls and play along! Fun!

I'm glad I stopped by! This was a fun challenge. I used some stitching and some pearly dewdrops. Adorable box by the way - and what a great idea for a college student!!

Rachel Hope said...

WOW! Stunning!!!! I am working on a card with Beloved paper, it is SOOOOO pretty, added the one I made with pearls!

I hope it's OK that I am linking more than project! I started focusing on your color combo and pearls, and I have just been stamping away, adding pearls to everything! ;) I just may have to head back to my stamp table to see if I can work a button-y bow into the mix as well! Awesome project... Thanks for the challenge!

MelissaS said...

this was a perfect boost to use my new Bling Bet set!! Thanks for the inspiration - I LOVE your box!

Kathleen said...

Thanks for the fun challenge! Your box was very inspiring. I had just bought some Beloved paper last weekend, and thanks to you, I have now cut into it rather than hoarding it. LOL. I LOVE your blog. I don't often leave comments, but I check it out every day.

Fabulous challenge Joanne! The box is just cute cute cute!

Chris said...

I had fun playing along with your challenge. How could playing with the PI's be anything but fun.

Cynthia said...

Fun challenge, and any excuse to ink up the new stamps is a good one! I also used hoarded and never before utilized baby braddies as hardware on my swing. Love your project, as always!

Renee' R said...

Your challenges always seem to get me motivated! I definately need to work on my technique, but your watercoloring tutorial was awesome! Thanks Joanne.

Augh!!! My link is requiring a log-in to view! Have no idea why as it's worked before, so here is an alternate:

It's an altered Prima tin with my new PI girl swinging from her sparkly Prima tree in a sparkly felt park.

Absolutely gorgeous! I just watched your watercolouring tutorial, it's going to be so helpful next time I try to colour!
