Hi everyone. I’m back today with the My Favorite Things September Creative Challenge. 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 were challenged to create a card or project with no patterned paper. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.
I created a trio of cards…all using no patterned paper. Whew. :)
This was indeed a challenge for me as the very first thing I choose (after the stamp) is the paper.
It’s Your Big Day
I used Copic Opaque White and a toothpick to add dots to Tangy Orange cardstock. Once the dots dried, I die-cut several layers of Botanical Beauty Die-namics and added a couple of Royal Leaves cut from Gumdrop Green cardstock.
On the inside, I stamped “Congratulations” (also from Big Greetings) and added another row of dots.
On the inside, I added another sentiment from Big Greetings and a couple more flowers.
To add a bit of dimension to the pumpkin, I cut two thin strips of Gumdrop Green cardstock, wrapped each tightly around a bamboo skewer and then secured to the pumpkin with a tiny brad.
I stamped a couple of flourishes with the three little pumpkins along the bottom on the inside of the card.
Be sure to check out the MFT blog for more inspiration!
Thanks for so much for visiting today! :)
