Welcome...MFT November Creative Challenge 62

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 26, 2012 @ 10:00 PM | , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all off to a great start of the Holiday Season! I'm here to share a project for the MFT Design Team December Creative Challenge. 
In case you are not familiar, 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 Holiday Home Decor using our MFT Stamps and Die-namics. 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 mixed media holiday wall hanging using a variety of Die-namics along with several MFT stamp sets. After creating the textured brick wall, I randomly stamped the larger dots from LJD Darling Dots on the wall for a little added texture and depth. I think it also adds character ;) LOL
I added a trio of multi-layered Poinsettias that were made using Die-namics Poinsettia  which I sprayed using heidi swapp Sweet Cherry Color shine. I finished them off with a dusting of glitter and a rhinestone brad. 
Tucked behind the Poinsettias are beautiful die cut flourishes that were made using Die-namics Medium Fancy Flourish and Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish.
I made a couple of Christmas tree topiaries using Die-namics Jumbo Banner Day STAX. Once the trees were die cut, spritzed and assembled, I randomly stamped using LJD Darling Dots. The pots were made using Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome and each topped off with a star made using Die-namics Star STAX.
Once the wooden door was completed with all the texture and color, I adhered a die cut wreath that was made using Die-namics Winter Wreath and fashioned a stamped sentiment on it. The 'Tis the Season sentiment is from Inspired by Christmas and was stamped on a die cut strip that was made using Die-namics Sentiment Strips
In case you are interested in a nearly step by step more detailed tutorial, please take a peek at the tutorial I put together shown below:

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my mixed media holiday wall hanging as much as I enjoyed creating it! Remember to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a Holiday Home Decor project for you today!
Be Sweet :)
