Dream...MFT February Creative Challenge 39

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 18, 2013 @ 10:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the February MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! Just 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 projects using a "clean and simple style" - without the use of any pattern paper. Yep, needless to say, this was quite the challenge for me but I'm always up for a great challenge so I pulled out a variety of MFT stamps, inks, buttons and Die-namics dies and had a boat load of fun! :)

First up, is a card featuring a trio of stamped / die cut butterflies that were made using a combination of the butterfly stamp from Die-namics Tag, You're It Die & Stamp Set along with one of the butterfly dies from Die-namics Butterflies
The sentiment is from Die-namics Let's Toast Die & Stamp Set. The butterflies were stamped using the following MFT inks: Sno Cone, Kraft, Jellybean Green.
The next card features a beautiful stamped die cut butterfly that was made using Inspired by Butterflies along with a coordinating Die-namics Inspired by Butterflies die. Both the butterfly and sentiment from Finishing Flourishes were stamped using MFT Black Licorice ink. 
I layered the butterfly on a gingham stamped / die cut label that was made using Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Die & Stamp Set. I topped it off with a Whip Cream button and Pink Lemonade rolled rose that was made using Die-namics Mini Royal Roses.
I really went super simple with this one ~ not even a stitch! LOL This card features a stamped / die cut label that was made using Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Set which I layered on top of a library card that was made using a stamp from LLD Journal It - Library Card and coordinating die cut made using Die-namics LLD Insert It - 3 x 4 Insert.
 I finished it off with rolled rose that was made using Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses and Die-namics Royal Leaves.
Lastly is a garden full of hearts :) Seriously, could it get any sweeter than that?! 
I stamped a trio of hearts using stamps from LJD Homespun Hearts on die cut coordinating hearts that were made using Die-namics LJD Rustic Hearts

Be Sweet :)
