May Creative Challenge - Flowers Made from Die-namics

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today!  The MFT Design Team has been challenged to Get Floral for the monthly Creative Challenge.  MFT has a plethora of Die-namics that can be used to create a garden of flowers.  :)  Be sure to check out what the rest of the team came up with HERE on the MFT Blog

First up, I created a Red HotKraft, and SmoothWhite card that is clean, yet (slightly) rustic.  I used one of the digitally provided sketches from Blueprints 3 for my card.

The rooster from Life's Direction was stamped in Black Licorice on a Kraft circle from Blueprints 3.  I stamped Distressed Background Blocks in the foreground, with a stamped-off, Kraft-inked stamped.  The flower was stamped with another stamp found in Distressed Background Blocks in Red Hot ink.  I love the pizazz it adds to the flower die.  I added a Kraft Button with extra long Hemp Cord.

I tucked a Woodgrain Fence behind them.  Under that is a strip from Blueprints 3, and a Smooth White Scalloped Border, from the same die.

Up next is this card using Life's Direction stamp set for the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment apart and stamped it using both Kraft and Red Hot inks.  It is framed in a piece created using Blueprints 3 Die-namics.

I added an arrow accent created with the Feathers and Arrows Die-namics.

I discovered when playing with this flower die, that the smallest heart from the Heart STAX Die-namics, fits perfectly in the petals of the flower.  I added them on top in the same color to add a little more detail and dimension to the flower.  I stamped a strip of Darling Dots in white pigment ink along the base of the kraft strip.  Then, just because I was feeling adventurous, I added a TEENY strip of Blu Raspberry Card Stock under it.  It adds an unexpected pop of color.

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog to see what the rest of the team came up with for this fun challenge.
