MFT Contest

IMG_8606 (672x800)

what fun this was to create this sweet fall card.  My Favorite Things is having a designer contest.  Check it out.  There’s $250 for each of ten people to win.  That’s a lot of MFT goodness.  Let me list all the products I used on here.  I started with cutting the card base panel from blue prints five with the rounded corners out of MFT Persimmon.  Isnt’ that a gorgeous orange?  For the next layer Whipped Cream MFT cardstock was used to capture the sun.  To color the sun I pulled out MFT sun rays stencil and used distress inks to very lightly make the rays and a bit darker for the sun.  Using MFT designer paper from the Fun and Frolic pack I cut a curved edge with my MFT pierced curved die.  But oh, oops the piercing was on the wrong side of the cut i wanted to use.  No problem.  Line up the die on top of the curve and emboss it through the Big Shot.  OOO…I like that look.  Next I die cut all the little mice from MFT BB Harvest Mouse  and then stamped them to see which ones i wanted to use.  It is so fun to color these little guys.  I die cut a pierced banner from MFT Field Green card stock with  MFT pierced fish tail dies.  I decided not to use the fishtail part and hid it under the hill.  Before adhering it I wanted to give it a bit of interest and used MFT swiss dots stencil and ran the banner through the big shot for a subtle pattern.  I colored all my images with Staedler water color pencils and used a blender pen to move the color around.  I popped up the little guy in the leaf pile and used adhesive spray for the other two.  Isn’t he cute looking like he’s going up the hill hauling that pumpkin and wondering why the other guy is playing in the leaves???  I added some crystal effects to the berries and wink of stella to the pumpkin.  Lastly I performed stamp surgery and spread the sentiment from MFT BB Harvest Mouse set to line up better with the layout I chose. I used MFT Paver Red Premium Dye Inkpad.  I had so much fun creating this little scene.  Thanks MFT for a chance to win such a generous prize.
