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 were challenged to create clean and simple projects - without the use of any pattern paper.
Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a clean and simple project to share with you today.
Hi, and welcome to this month’s MFT Creative Challenge! I LOVE CAS designs so I was super excited when we got this challenge. I’ve got two cards for you today, each one different but both CAS.
My first card is really CAS :) I’m using LJD Spring Backgrounds on both cards, but for this one, I stamped the hounds tooth pattern once on Sweet Tooth card stock with Sno Cone ink. Then, using a sentiment from DC Just My Type, I stamped “happy birthday” with Black Licorice ink. I thought it needed a little something else, so I trimmed off 1/4” from the front flap and lined it with some Black Licorice card stock. To finish it off I added a few clear jewels for balance.
Here’s a close up of all that:
And here’s in the inside with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays:
For my second card, I started with a Kraft card stock base and stamped the front with the flower design with white pigment ink.
Then I cut out a Die-namics Designer Labels 3 STAX and stamped the bottom of the sentiment from My Favorite Sentiments. Then I cut out the larger double-ended flag from my Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon set and stamped “DREAM” with Razzle Berry ink. I love how this really “pops” with the neutrals. And just look at the coverage—MFT’s ink rocks, I tell ya!
I popped both layers up on foam and added a few clear jewels to this, too. Here you can see a little dimension really brings a CAS design to a new level without being bulky.
And, finally, here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:
