Favorite Color Combo


Hi everyone,

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 are highlighting our favorite color combinations using MFT Ink, cardstock, buttons,ribbon, and felt.

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a project to share with you today.


My very favorite color is blue and I love love love MFT Stamps Blu Raspberry cardstock …. I have been using this a lot recently with the new Electric Red cardstock which is fast becoming my favorite red … I just can’t stop using it Smile.  Today for my card I have used these two colors along with white using the Smooth White cardstock with is also new to MFT Stamps.

I stamped the square front porch image from Inspired by the Front Porch – Spring using the Black Licorice Ink Pad onto Blu Raspberry cardstock. This was die cut and layered using the Die-namics Square STAX Set 1 and Die-namics Square STAX Set 2.

For the Base layer I stamped the flower background from LJD Spring Backgrounds onto Smooth White cardstock using Blu Raspberry ink. The vertical panel on the left of the card is stamped using LJD Darling Dots and Electric Red ink. Along the left edge of this panel I used the Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip.

To finish off the front of my card I added a bow using Electric Red Ribbon topped with a Blu Raspberry Button and Hemp Cord.

For the sentiments hanging from the button I used the “Happy” from Inspired by the Front Porch – Spring and “Birthday” from Doodle Garden Party Time and one of the tags from Die-namics Blueprints 1.


Here is the inside of my card …. I stamped the flowers from Inspired by the Front Porch – Spring using Blu Raspberry ink and the sentiment was stamped using Electric Red ink.
