this is not really much of a challenge for me, it's pretty much the only technique I do anymore. Your examples are fabulous.

Here is one from me:
Image
I stamped, die-cut and colored the wine cups and grapes. The kiddish cup was stamped, colored, and fussy cut. 
Inside, I added another stamped, colored, die-cut cup plus I stamped the Hebrew sentiment, but edited it by hand:

I used versamark to stamp my images on the black cardstock. Then I used blue pearl-ex to set it.  I'm looking forward to more of these kind of challenges!!

I frequently stamp and colors my cards but recently have been trying textured pp's.   Makes a lot of difference what kind of paper your card is made from, at least in stamping and coloring with pencils.

Just testing out stamping on my scrapbook pages but I did cut around the tag at the top plus make a border of Christmas lights then colored them in at the bottom.
