MFT June Creative Challenge - Frame It!


Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to the MFT June Design Team Creative Challenge!  Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our Design Team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique.  This month, we've been asked to Frame It!  Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have put their MFT Stamps/Die-Namics dies to work to create a piece of framed art for you!

I had SO much creating this!  I made this frame for Meredith's Kindergarten Teacher.  She is AMAZING and really has been SUCH a wonderful teacher.  I am SO thankful that she had a Kindergarten teacher that has taught her SO much, especially to LOVE to learn. 

This isn't the greatest picture...I just could not get a good shot, but hopefully you can see it!  Here is what I did!  I bought this frame in Michaels, and it came with the mat and has room for dimension in side.  I started with a piece of Sno Cone Cardstock cut to size and used that to build my scene.  I added two rolling hills that I hand cut from My Favorite Felt in Sour Apple and Jellybean Green and I stitched the hills with my Janome Sew Mini.

I cut two tree trunks using the Teardrop Tree Die-Namics using My Favorite Felt in Chocolate.  I then added the tree tops using the same Die-Namics once again using My Favorite Felt in Sour Apple and Jellybean Green.  I used the Rainbow Die-Namics to create the rainbow tucked behind the trees and I cut each stripe using Red Hot, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Gumdrop Green, Sour Apple, Berrylicious and Grape Jelly Cardstock.



I cut two clouds using the Flat Bottom Die-Namics out of My Favorite Felt in Puff Cloud White.  I pulled out the DARLING Pure Innocence Mud Buddies and I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I "fussy cut" her out and popped her up onto the hills.  I added a trio of flower clusters cut with the flower from the Notched Tag Die-Namics, and adorned each with a rhinestone.


I added a Kraft tag to the bottom corner cut with the Tag You're It Die-Namics.  I cut a panel for the bottom of the tag out of My Favorite Felt in Jellybean Green and added some stitching.  I then added a cluster of rolled flowers cut using the Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics out of Red Hot Cardstock, Rolled Retro Flower Die-Namics out of Orange Fizz Cardstock and Rolled Gardenia Die-Namics out of Sno Cone Cardstock.  The sentiment, "Thank You For Helping Me Bloom" was computer generated and printed out onto Sweet Tooth Cardstock.  I cut it out with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics and tucked it under the flowers.  I topped it off with a big gingham bow and added a Sno Cone button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics.


Here are the Copic Markers I've used:
