April MFT Creative Challenge - Jazz Up Your Blooms!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for the April MFT Creative Challenge, and this month the Design Team is jazzing up their blooms by stamping or adding texture to our flowers!  SO much fun!  I have two cards to share with you today!

My first card today features the amazing new Blueprints 14 Die-Namics, which is one of my favorite Blueprints!  These have not left my stamp desk since the last Release Countdown!

I cut the main panel from Kraft and cut a mat from Smooth White Cardstock using the Blueprints 3 Die-Namics.  I stamped the Black Licorice panel using the Chalkboard Greetings Too set with Versamark and then embossed with White Hero Arts Embossing Powder.

I used the Blueprints 14 Die-Namics to cut the remaining elements, and the Razzle Berry Flower was stamped with Razzle Berry Ink using the Woodgrain Background.  I topped it off with a Black Licorice Button tied with Hemp Cord.  The leaves, which I LOVE, were cut from Gumdrop Green Cardstock.

On the inside, I again used the Blueprints 14 and Blueprints 3 for the main panel and mat, and stamped another sentiment from Chalkboard Greetings Too using Black Licorice Ink.

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

I stamped her with the new Black Licorice Hybrid Ink (LOVE) onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  I then cut out the panel with the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-Namics.  I cut another panel with these Die-Namics, this time from Grout Gray Cardstock, and layered all the panels.

I used one of my most favorite flower Die-Namics, the Pretty Posies Die-Namics, and I cut it from Pink Lemonade Cardstock.  I stamped it using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink using the Sheet Music Background.  I added a Black Licorice Button tied with Hemp Cord.

I used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics to cut the main Pink Lemonade panel and Smooth White mat.  I stamped the Pink Lemonade panel using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink with the Sheet Music Background again.  I cut a piece of Smooth White Cardstock with the Ticket Tab Die-Namics, and I stamped the sentiment, "You're So Tweet" with Black Licorice Ink.

On the inside, I've again used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics for the main panel and mat, and I stamped this PI again using Grout Gray Ink.  I stamped another sentiment, "Happy Bird-Day" using Black Licorice Ink.

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