Hello everyone! This month's challenge for the MFT Design Team's Creative Construction with Blueprints was scallops - a LOT of the Blueprints Die-namics sets have some great scalloped dies in them.
Make sure to check out MFT's blog post for links to all the other DT member's blogs to see what they've created!
I haven't been making many cards lately while I get myself and my house ready for the impending arrival of this baby (and deal with life in general) but this was a challenge I could definitely play along with. The Blueprints Die-namics make it pretty easy IMO to create with as SO much of the work is done for you.
I zeroed in on one of my favorite sets (which I get asked a lot, besides Set 1 and 2 which are go-to's for me for layering, I really love this set too!) which is Blueprints 14. I ended up making 2 cards with it - the first one following one of the sketches MFT provides with their digital downloads and then one just using some of the elements from the set.
While I was at it I played along with the latest MFT Color Challenge - that's another way to get a creative boost when you're feeling stuck or uncreative like I've been feeling lately LOL:
I used the new Garden Flourish background stamp on the Summer Splash card stock with Summer Splash ink, and stamped the sentiment onto the Whip Cream card stock with the same ink.
The flower is from the Blueprints set and I attached the button with one of my red line stickies I get from Jody - those things are SUPER-adhesive and perfect for things like buttons and hemp!
I finished off the inside with stamps from the Friends Like Us set - another favorite of mine.
On my second card I stamped the Simply Circles background onto the Nightshift Blue card stock with the same ink (sorry my camera took it up as REALLY dark - so annoying), and stamped another sentiment from the new True Friends stamp set with the same ink. I added a couple of the scalloped strips that I due cut from Sour Apple and Summer Splash card stock, and a little flower embellishment made with one of the dies from the Blueprints 14 set along with a button and some hemp.
I finished off the inside with another sentiment from the Friends Like Us set (one of my favorites LOL) and stamped hearts from the True Friends set and that was it!
