Sending Handmade Hugs–MFT Color Challenge #116

Hi, all, I'm back with the latest MFT Color Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s color combo: Blu Raspberry, Coral Crush, Limelight, and Cotton Candy. 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 wanted to make this card super simple so I got out Big Hugs Die-namics and started looking through my Paper Packs to see if I could find all four colors in one pattern. I found them in the two Tiny Checks collections so it was all good! I cut each letter out with a challenge color and affixed foam mounting tape to the backs. On a Sweet Tooth card stock panel I laid my letters out to figure out where to stamp the sentiment, from Lots of Hugs Stamp Set and stamped it with Black Licorice dye ink.

To continue the homespun theme, I used three of the Homespun Stitch Lines Die-namics—because gingham and stitching is perfect for this, amiright? I popped that panel up on a Sweet Tooth card base with foam tape, adhered the letters, and finished off with some enamel dots! Love it!

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!
