MFT'S March Creative Challenge


Hi and thanks for stopping by for MFT'S March Creative Challenge. The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. 
This month, we are highlighting our favorite color combinations using MFT Ink, cardstock, buttons,ribbon, and felt. 
Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.



My first card uses the MFT Card Stock color combination of Pink Lemonade, Steel Grey, Sour Apple, and Whip Cream. 


I love MFT's buttons! Here I created a heart as the center piece of my card using Pink Lemonade Buttons. Down each side of the card I added borders with the Dainty Lace Border Die-namics.  The sentiment and button stamp is from the LJD Homespun Hearts Stamp Set.

The pattern on Sour Apple Cardstock is created with the grid paper stamp in the LLD Journal It - Graph Paper Notes Stamp Set in Sour Apple Ink.



Here is what I used to create my button heart. I cut a heart from Pink Lemonade Cardstock with the Heart STAX Die-namics. Using the heart as my base I glued buttons onto the cardstock. Then I coated the buttons with Glossy Accents and lightly sprinkled glitter on the buttons. 


Behind the heart I used the Rounded Banner Die-namics. I cut one in Steel Grey and in Pink Lemonade Cardstock. I stamped the dotted pattern in Pink Lemonade Ink with a stamp from LJD Darling Dots Stamp Set. Then I cut one more banner in vellum.



My card is for a bridal shower so on the inside I stamped a sentiment from LJD Gift Card Greetings II.


If you visit my blog you know I am a big fan of red, so I had to share one of my favorite red combinations, Wild Cherry, Black Licorice, Sno Cone, and sometimes just a pop of Gumdrop Green Card Stock.


I used one of my favorite à la modes stamp sets, Polished to Perfection, and added a sentiment from the set. The sentiment is stamped in Wild Cherry Ink and cut out with the File Tab Die-namics.

The flower is created with the Royal Rose and Royal Leaves Die-namics. I used MFT felt in Wild Cherry for the flower.

The bottom border is cut with the Scalloped Scallop Die-namics and I added MFT ribbon in Wild Cherry.


She is colored with Copic Markers and Prism Colored Pencils.


On the inside I added a gift card holder with the Horizontal Gift Card Die-namics, added a sentiment from the stamp set and a place to write a note.
