Hope Today Tickles You Pink–MFT May Creative Construction With Blueprints Challenge


Hi, all, it’s time for another MFT Design Team Creative Construction With Blueprints Challenge. This month we’re challenged to:

Infuse your cards with flora and fauna with this collection of Blueprints. From delicate to bold, graphic to detailed – we’ve got a style for every occasion. Featured Blueprints include 3, 5, 12, 14, & 19.


I’m using Blueprints 12 Die-namics and one of the sketches for my card today. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, added two Black Licorice card stock panels and created a shaker box for the circle element in the sketch. The center panel was cut from Grout Gray card stock and I used Heat Resistant Acetate for the window. The two fishtail flag elements were made from Tickled Pink card stock and Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Black Licorice dye ink and Striped Backgrounds. The flowers were cut from Tickled Pink card stock and Daffodil card stock and the Wild Greenery Die-namics leaves were cut from Sour Apple card stock. The sentiment is from Tickled Pink stamp set and, of course, the sweet Flamingo Die-namics was cut from Tickled Pink card stock with a touch of Sweet Tooth card stock and Black Licorice card stock and popped up on foam mounting tape.

Another sentiment from Tickled Pink stamp set was stamped on the inside.


And that’s it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
