Using Center

                                                     Simply use only the center of the top layer

                                              I chose the MFP Stamp Set autumn Friendships
                                             I gold embossed the gorgeous leaf and was done

Center of Top Layer Ch 259

                                               I know it is why it is called a challenge
                                                         This one really challenged me
                         challenge this week  SFF is to use only the center of the top layer
                         Sounded easy but I found it hard to stop once I did the center
                                                 I used the MFP Set Big Trees
                    AND it is the first time I have ever heat embossed on my handmade paper

FOSTV 163 Creatures in the Night

It took some thinking to come up with Creatures in the Night with the MFP stamps I have 

I used stamps from "What a Scream" MFP set
First I used the Haunted House Folder  on black card stock
                               Using sponges I rubbed gray silver and white until I got a look I felt spooky
                                   I  cut out the cat and saying and adhered then the google eyes
                                                         If it scares the cat I am good

FOSTV 162 Tri Fold

You will have fun making this TriFold for the challenge this week on friend of speedy TV 
I used the MFP set Black eyed Susan I stamped colored and cut out several of the flowers and arranged them on the panels
I use washi  tape along the edge on both sides 
The most work in this card is the cutting out and I am sure it could be done without that step 
Show us how you would do a tri fold

SF&F 257 Gold Embossed Background

                           I used a different method than the wonderful TT Pat has for you
                                               I used stamps from MFP Pandas
                 I first used the smooth side of the stamp to put the embossing ink circles
             on the card stock I lightly gold embossed a few and gelato colored the others
                           I then covered all of them with yellow gelato  in that area
            Then I did several layers of Ultra thick EP and covered that with a top layer of gold
             using the panda stamp covered in embossing ink I pressed it into the warm EP
                       The bamboo circle is gold embossed directly on the card stock

                                I am sure you would enjoy the TT Pat has
                                      or you have a method of your own
                        and you will come join us at Speedy fox and Friends
