My Favorite Things Stamps...Color Palette Challenge # 1...Hello!


Hello Stampin' friends! Did you see the exciting news on the MFT blog?! My Favorite Things has started a NEW monthly challenge, the Color Palette Challenge. Well, I couldn't wait to make a card with this month's color Palette...MFTCPC1!

This month we're to use the Classic MFT color palette...Pink Lemonade, 
Black Licorice and Sweet Tooth.

I made my card-base 5.5X5.5 from Black Licorice Heavyweight Card Stock and matted with MFT Pink Lemonaide and Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock. I dug through my pattern paper and found these pretty Carta Bella 6x6 Papers called Paris Girl...they were perfect!

  I inked up the sweet NEW Wendy Burns - Best Friends girl and coloured her up with my Copics. I cut the image out with my Pierced Oval STAX and matted with the OVAL STAX 1 and 2. I left the image in the Pierced Oval STAX die-namics and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I also used the Monarch Border from Blueprints 5

I made pretty little flowers with the flower die-namics from Blueprints 3 and added Black Licorice open leaves cut with NEW Layered Leaves Die-namics. I stamped a sentiment from the WBD - Best Friends Stamp set with Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink on Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock cut with the tag from Blueprints 2.

Here is the inside...I used the Square STAX and Pierced Square STAX, more flowers from Blueprints 3 and used the stitched sentiment strips from Blueprints 2 cut from Pink Lemonade Heavyweight Card Stock and stamped the sentiment from the Wendy Burns Designs - Stylish Friends Stamp set in Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink.

Well, thanks SO much for popping by and having a little look at my card for this month's My Favorite Things Stamps Color Palette Challenge # 1...Black Licorice, Pink Lemonade and Sweet Tooth!
