August MFT Creative Challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for the MFT Creative Challenge!  This month we are adding texture and dimension to our projects using the FABULOUS MFT Felt!  I LOVE MFT cuts like butter, and MFT has a GORGEOUS array of colors!

For my first project, I created a card with felt flowers.  I started with a Smooth White Card Base, and I then cut the main layer, and mat, using the Blueprints 5 Die-Namics and Blueprints 6 Die-Namics, using Nightshift Blue and Smooth White.

I embossed the Nightshift Blue panel using the Triangle Screen Die-Namics, just like the awesome Barbara showed HERE on the MFT Blog!  SO easy, so fun, and I love the end result!

I cut a Smooth White panel using the Pierced Circle STAX Die-Namics.  I love these...alot.  I stamped, "Thank You" from Sweet Roses in Black Licorice Ink.  I cut Razzle Berry Felt using the Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics.  I cut the leaves from Sour Apple Felt with the Royal Leaves Die-Namics, and the purple flower from Grapesicle Felt using the Pretty Posies Die-Namics.  I added a Sweet Tooth Button to the center of the purple flower tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside, I cut two more layers of Smooth White Cardstock using the Blueprints 5 Die-Namics and Blueprints 6 Die-Namics.  I stamped "You're A Sweet Friend", also from Sweet Roses, in Black Licorice Ink.

Here are the MFT products I've used on my card:

Next, I used felt to create flowers to adorn hairbands and hair clips!  SO much fun!  With two little girls, we are always searching for cute accessories...and it was SO fun to make them myself!  I can't wait to make them barrettes to match each and every outfit!

First up, I adorned a hairband.  I cut Razzle Berry Felt with the Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics, Blu Raspberry Felt cut with the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics, and Grapesicle Felt cut with Pretty Posies Die-Namics.  The leaves were cut from Sour Apple Felt with the Royal Leaves Die-Namics.

My Meredith modeled this one for me!

Next, I created a three different pairs of adorned hair clips!  These were so fun!  I used the same Die-Namics and felt colors that I used for the hairband, and just made single flower hair clips!

My Avery is modeling the purple flower hair clip...purple is her favorite color!

Here are the MFT products I've used on my hair accessories:
