MFT Creative Challenge with video

Pin It
 The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we were challenged to create Holiday Home Decor using our MFT Stamps and Die-namics.  Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.

I have a fun and easy to make home decor item today. I just love the new Poinsettia Die-namics from MFT! I decided I wanted to make some to pin to base of my candle. 

I have a video below showing you how I made these!

 As you can see up close they have a pretty glossy appearance. You could use these to make hair pins, broaches for your coat...the ideas are really endless.

I airbrushed these flowers with my copic airbrush system so they are quick and easy!

 Here is a look at the card to go along with the candle....this could make a nice hostess gift.
For the card I used the new Seasonal Sentiments stamp set.

 A close up look at how I stamped the sentiment. I used Shell pink and cranberry adirondack pigment ink. I inked the shell pink first and then used the cranberry for the edges.

I did the same technique for the inside of the card and also embossed the poinsettia Die-namics on the inside as well.

Stamps: Seasonal Sentiments (MFT)
Ink: “Shell Pink”, “Cranberry” Adirondack Pigment Ink (Ranger), Versamark (Tsukineko)
Paper: “Paver Red”, “Sweet Tooth” (MFT), Aluminum Foil Heavy Duty
Accessories: Copic Markers (R30, R39), Copic Airbrush System, UTEE, Crystal Stick Pins (Maya Road), Heat Tool, Fringe Ribbon (Melissa Frances)
Finished Card Size: 4x6
