Heck Yes! MFT Birthday Project

Heck yes, you’re here!!! Thanks for popping in and hanging out for a little bit. Today I have a bright, simplish card to share with you. This one features bright colors, and a stamp set I’ve never used before.

MFT’s July Birthday Project challenge is Birthday Bouquet. I don’t have many flower sets from MFT, and the sets I do have are older. I ended up picking a stamp set I’ve never used before, even though I’ve had it for 2 years. I’ve used the matching dies, but never the stamps.

Scribbled Roses was one of the first sets I purchased from MFT, nearly 2 years ago. I loved the idea of using the matching dies, but always struggled with it. This time I’m using the stamps. I like the sketchy look if the lines.

I started out by trimming down a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with MFT’s Mod Rectangles. I stamped the base layer of the smallest flower with Altenew Pink Diamond, then created a mask. The next layer was stamped with Altenew Pinkalicious (all inks used are Altenew). I masked off the flower, then stamped the middle flower with Sunkissed and Orange Cream. I created another mask, and moved on to the third flower. I used Blush and Rouge for the third flower. With all the flowers masked, I started on the leaves, using Limeade and Lime inks.

Once I had every thing stamped, I removed the mask and let the panel dry. Then, I stamped the sentiment from MFT Anything But Basic Birthday Wishes with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I added Gina K Clear Detail embossing powder and heat embossed it.

I added the stamped panel to a Gina K Design Barely There card base with fun foam. I finished off the card with Nuvo Jewel Drops in Strawberry Coulis, Orange Marmalade and Limoncello.

I’m really digging these brighter color pallets. They aren’t my normal go to, but ever since I made a card for a challenge that featured bright colors, I find myself using them more and more. Do you find yourself sticking to a specific color pallet?

Thanks for stopping by!
