Hi all! Happy Mother’s Day! Hope you are having a lovely day with your families. My daughter and I spent some time this morning making cards. She had asked to do one of the MFT color challenges. I hadn’t participated in quite some time, so this worked perfectly. Hopefully, it will also help in perking up my MOJO, which has been rather flat & squashed lately.
First up is my daughter’s card.
I love how she put this together! She pulled out my Mini Chicken Wire cover up die and cut a piece of Orange Fizz. She glued that down to a white card base and then watercolored a few purple splotches, using my SAI Watercolor Markers. She then cut two butterflies using the Flutter of Butterflies dies. Finally, she cut a hello out of Limelight using a Top Dog Dies die. She matted it on white and then added a piece of fun foam behind it for even dimension.
Now for mine:
I purchased the Gumball MFT kit a few months back and hadn’t used it yet. I was struggling with all of the bits and pieces to the machine. For the color challenge, I thought this would be the perfect way to accomplish the colors and get a machine made. I cut my gumballs with each of the color challenge colors – Orange Fizz, Grape Jelly, Grapesicle and Limelight. My machine was cut in Grout Gray. I did opt for a shaker card and used one of the Shaker Pouches and filled it with some card stock gumballs. Finally, I stamped a sentiment in VersaFine Onyx and embossed it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you again soon!
