Blessed–Color Throwdown Challenge #470

CTD470_2017nov22

Hey everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she has some gorgeous Autumn colors for us based on this yummy inspiration piece.

So, I could not think of anything better to do with these colors than to use Modern Trees. I didn’t want to do a “scene”—although I love them I’ve been doing a lot of them lately so wanted to do something different. First, I dry embossed Sweet Tooth card stock with Radiating Rays Stencil (WHAT will I do if it’s ever retired????) then sponged it with ink, starting with Tangy Orange, then Orange Fizz, and fading to Daffodil. I popped it up on foam on a card base then stamped the trees with the same colors added Chocolate Brown for the trunks/limbs.

Then I cut Blessed & Blessings Die-namics three times from Chocolate Brown card stock, stacked them, and added them to the card front with a little foam tape and it was done! Really loving this card.

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 CTD470 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd470 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 incredibly talented November Guest Designer, Kelly Lunceford!

Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge—Holiday Tags

CCwithBP_2017nov16

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this month’s Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this month’s challenge: Holiday Tags. All of the details about the challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration 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.


MFT_CreativeConstruction_SideBar

You can’t have too many gift tags, can you? Handmade gift tags are a gift themselves—a bonus to accompany the actual gift. I have two very different tags for you today. First, I created a small scene on a Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics base using Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics.

CCwithBP_2017nov16b








































The sentiment is from Snow Globe Sentiments and I finished off with some ribbon and baker’s twine.

My second tag is a see-through shaker tag. I cut Tag Builder Blueprints 6 twice, inserted a Circle Shaker pouch in each, added 6mm Winter Snow Shaker Mix and Silver Shimmer seed beads, then glued the two halves together.

CCwithBP_2017nov16c

The sentiment is also from Snow Globe Sentiments and was heat embossed with Silver Zing! Glitter Embossing Powder on Cornflower card stock cut with Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. I added a Let It Snowflake Too, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and the grommet cut from the same. I finished off with some crinkled seam binding from my stash and baker’s twine.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the

Celebrate–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #359

MFTWSC359_2017nov15

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 Challenge & Inspiration 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.



MFT_WSC_359


Goodness, this card was fun to make! I started by sponging some balloons on Sweet Tooth card stock using Big Balloons Stencil (ink colors listed below). I “tied” on some strings with a black Copic multiliner and splattered some gold Kuretake Gansai watercolors.

MFTWSC359_2017nov15b

Then I created my shaker element using foam tape, Heat Resistant Acetate, Black Licorice card stock cut with Stitched Square Frames, and filled it with Twinkle Lights Sparkly Shaker Selection sequins, Silver Shimmer seed beads. For the horizontal element I cut Celebrate Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock and twice from Sweet Tooth, stacked them for strength, and adhered it to the shaker frame.

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 $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

You’re One of a Kind–Color Throwdown #469

CTD469_2017nov15

Hey everyone! Welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s colors are brought to us by the lovely Vickie based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.


swatch469


I simply couldn’t do anything but a snowflake card with these colors, now could I? I brought in my two blues with a watercolor wash background, then stamped a few snowflakes from You Make My Heart Melt stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from Snowfall of Blessings Stamp Set and was heat embossed with silver embossing powder on Black Licorice card stock.

CTD469_2017nov15b

Next I added some Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics, cut from Silver Sparkle card stock and elevated a bit on hot glue. Otherwise, dimension was achieved with foam mounting tape.

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.

My Favorite Things November Release Replay

releasereplay_2017nov14

Hello and welcome to MFT’s October Release Replay! 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!


Print
I’ve had this color palette in mind for a while to use with Snowflake Splendor and this seemed like a good time to use it. I stamped the images, alternating colors, on Sweet Tooth card stock, cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics, and stacked them with foam tape between each layer.

releasereplay_2017nov14b

I added a strip of Homespun Gingham paper pack down each side of my card base then popped up a panel of Sweet Tooth on foam tape. I added the snowflake stack then embellished each with either Nuvo Jewel Drops – Rosewater, Nuvo Jewel Drops – Sea Breeze, matching colors. I finished by adding a sentiment using Peaceful Words Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, stacked three layers deep and adhered beneath the snowflake.

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
