MFT Challenges

I decided to join in the MFT Challenges this month and wanted to share them with you.

Ambassador Challenge #1
This was to make a Spring Card using no flowers and no black. How can you do a spring card without flowers? I had quite a few ideas for stamps to use, but they had a little flower somewhere, so back to the drawing board. I finally decided to use a bunny and some bright colors. Here is what I came up with:

Card Recipe~ all items SU unless indicated
Stamps: Bunny Hugs, Sentiment - Michael's
Ink: Pixie Pink; Memento - Brown
Paper: Pixie Pink, Green Galore/ White- Gina K / DP - DCWV
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Ribbon, Dew Drops (Robin's Nest), White pom pom (unknown), Nesties, Martha Stewart Border Punch , Prismacolor and Bic Mark It Markers


Ambassador Challenge #2
This was to make a card using the color Pumpkin, paper piecing, and some bling. I have only used Pumpkin Pie cardstock as an accent color, so I was worried about how this would turn out, but I was pleasantly surprised with the end result. Here it is:

Card Recipe~ all items SU unless indicated
Stamps: MFT - Shower Time, SU - Live Your Dream (thank you)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Memento - Tuxedo Black

MFT Idol Challenge
For the entry, you could do any type of card/project you wanted. After tonight, all entries will be judged and the top 10 will move on to the next round with a winner being announced on June 3rd. The winner will receive a $250 shopping spree ~ how fun would that be!?! There are a bunch of fantastic entries, but as they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained ~ so I decided to give it a shot. Here is my submission:

Stamps: MFT - Maid For You
Ink: Chocolate Chip; Archival Ink - Black
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip; White (Papertrey); DP - K & Co

Jodi,

I love this card even though I have a huge huge aversion / severe allergy to brown (big joke with me and my close blogging buddies!!!)

Anyway I made hubby a V-Day card with this set on my blog on the day after v-day and I really love what you did with this!!!!

I really do not think I have seen this set used better yet!!!

Great Job!!

Heather
