MFT May Creative Challenge–April Showers Bring May Flowers


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, April Showers bring May Flowers!  Look forward to an assortment of flower-filled creations from today's participating designers.  Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have a project to share with you today.

Hi, all, I’m ALWAYS ready to play with flowers so I’m loving this challenge!! I have two cards to show you today, so let’s get started!

I did some stamping on the first card. On
Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped the hounds tooth image from LJD Spring Backgrounds with Sour Apple ink, then I stamped the sentiment, from All Smiles, with Black Licorice ink.

Then I cut out the flowers from Die-namics LJD Roses and Leaves and stamped the flowers from
LJD Sweet Roses with Black Licorice ink in Smooth White card stock and colored them with Copic markers. Same for the leaves, then I adhered them, the larger one is popped up on foam.


To finish it off, I added some black enamel dots. Here’s the inside with another sentiment from All Smiles:


For my second card, I’m using Die-namics Sunflower for a bright accent. Also on a Sweet Tooth card stock base, I stamped the sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Art, with Hot Fudge ink, then adhere a Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish cut from Sour Apple card stock. The Sunflower was cut from Lemon Drop card stock with a Hot Fudge card stock center. To finish it off I tied around a narrow brown gingham ribbon.


And here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:
