MFT Creative Challenge - Home Decor

Hi, everyone! It's time for another MFT Creative Challenge! Today we've been challenged to use Die-namics dies for a home decor project. What perfect timing! I've had SPRING letters on my To Do list for several weeks and this was just the push I needed to get them done! Be sure to check out Kim's blog to see what other designers are participating today.

So, I covered my letters with some new Prima Sparkling Spring papers and set to decorating them. I used Die-namics on every letter except the "P", where I just stamped the tree from Grow Love and cut it out. The only other stamping I did was the medium flower stem from How Does Your Garden Grow.

Here's the whole set. I already have it proudly displayed on my corner china cabinet, but the lighting is not photo friendly so it was in my light box for this picture :)

And the last two:


And here are all of the Die-namics dies I used. It was such fun to pick out which ones I'd use on my project!






Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a new MFT Wednesday Sketch Club and CTD card!
