March Creative Challenge- Color Combos

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, we are highlighting our favorite color combinations using MFT Ink, cardstock, buttons,ribbon, and felt. 
Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.

For my projects tonight, I chose two different sets, but two of my most FAVORITE color combos!! I am in love with Wild Cherry, so it is featured in both combos...and who could blame me, it's so PRETTY! 

For my first card, I paired Smooth WhiteWild Cherry with Jellybean Green and Kraft cardstock. I used the new Poppies set, which was stamped using both Wild Cherry and Jellybean Green ink. You can tell by the close up picture that the ink covers so well!



I used Kraft ink to stamp my sentiments, and cut them out using the Blueprint 1 Die-namics. I also used one of the sketches provided along with the Die-namics. 




I embellished with a Wild Cherry button which has some twine through it, Michael's brads,  and Kraft ribbon.


For the inside of my card, I used more of the same supplies.

My second card features the super cute new Party Time Doodle Garden set. She was colored with Copics, and paper pieced as well. The color combo on this card is my favorite right now-Smooth White,  Wild Cherry, Berrylicious, and Gumdrop Green. I LOVE how bright and cheerful it is!



You can see by the close up photo that I cut out her arms, and present separately to give them some dimension. If you don't do this while paper piecing, it tends to make the arms look funny and lost.



For my sentiment, I again used the Blueprints 1 Die-namics, and some buttons in all of my colors: Wild Cherry, Berrylicious, and Gumdrop Green. My ribbon is Wild Cherry.


For the inside, I used more of the same supplies!

Here are the Die-namics I have used:



Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to head on over to the MFT blog for a full list of designers participating in this month's challenge!! Have a great day!
