Belated Birthday Wishes - MFT Color Challenge #121























Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Pineapple, Orange Zest, Poppy, Blu Raspberry. All of the details about the color challenge are available on the MFT Blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.




I had to stop myself from doing a tropical sunset and water with these colors, LOL! That seems to be my go to so I thought I should go in another direction this time. I stamped Flower Silhouettes Stamp Set on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Extreme Black hybrid ink then sponged my colors with Pineapple, Orange Zest, Poppy, and Blu Raspberry dye inks. 


Then I adhered the card front to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape, added a sentiment from Bitty Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics, and finished off with some enamel dots.



And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

You're a Ray of Sunshine - MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #445


















Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.





The first thing I thought of when I saw this sketch was clouds. I tried some other things but kept coming back to clouds so I let it be :) To begin, I sponged my background using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil, Blue Breeze dye ink, and a sponge dauber on Sweet Tooth card stock. Then I dry embossed Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base.

























Next I cut Stitched Clouds Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered them to the card front and finished off with the sentiment, heat embossed on Translucent Vellum.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

I'm Tickled Pink for You - Color Throwdown #551
















Hello and welcome to a brand new
Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has some sweet colors for us based on her equally sweet inspiration piece.




Instead of a flamingo I used SY Piggy Pebbles Stamp Set and Die-namics for my pink element. The little piggy was stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black Hybrid ink, cut out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored it with Copic markers. I stamped SY Scene Builder Stamp Set with black ink and did not color it, allowing the piggy, popped up on foam tape, to be the total focal point.






















To add the gold touch, I framed the piggy with A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics, cut from Gold Sparkle Card Stock popped up on foam tape. The sentiment, from BB Hog Heaven Stamp Set, was heat embossed on Black Licorice card stock cut from Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics and also popped up on foam tape and finished off with some enamel dots.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD551 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd551 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our amazing July Guest Designer, Susie Moore!

Friendship is Like a Rainbow - MFT & Friends Feature, July Edition











All of our July Release products are available in the
MFT Online Boutique NOW! Today our team is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present. We can’t wait to share our ideas with you so be sure to also stop by the MFT Blog to see who else is participating!




I didn’t get around to using this awesome new Magical Rainbow Die-namics during Countdown so I got it out for this card. I REALLY love that there’s a base to adhere each stripe to—so easy to put together!! I coordinated my rainbow colors with the new Over the Rainbow Paper Pack, which I used to outline the Cute Cloud Outlines Die-namics. After I got everything assembled, I lightly sponged Berrylicious dye ink for a background and popped the card front panel up on foam tape on the card base.


















To tie in with the sentiment, I added a couple of hearts, from Fairy-Tale Friends Stamp Set and Die-namics, colored with Copic markers. To finish off I heat embossed Rainbow Sentiments on Folded Fishtail Banner Die-namics, which was cut from Black Licorice card stock, and adhered it with foam tape as well.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
