Color Palette Challenge Review

Print

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 10 projects!

Safety Orange, Brick Red, Olive, and Hot Fudge are pretty much the official colors of autumn around many parts of the world. This combination manages to be both bold and cozy all wrapped into one. Let’s see where this palette takes your next project. Have fun with it and make something beautiful.

Hot Fudge is the perfect choice for a Grande cup of joe. The new Coffee Cup Die-namics and Perk Up stamp set were used to create the focal point of Cindy’s card while the remaining trio of colors are stamped and layered to create a rich and dimensional look.

Where one is good, three are better! Julie planted an orchard full of thriving trees die cut with the Out on a Limb Die-namics adding some cozy texture to the leaves with the Burlap Background.

Sharon took the color palette and switched it up by being inspired by the color quartet but not married to it - and that’s OK! The goal of each challenge is to get you thinking about color and then, make something awesome. That’s a goal Sharon has absolutely met in this sweet card featuring the Christmas Banner stamp set and Die-namics.

Ready to create a color inspired project of your own? Remember that you have until noon on November 5 to share your own Color Palette Challenge 10 projects. As a reminder, one of the challenge participants will win a Gift Voucher to the MFT boutique valued at up to $20! We can’t wait to see what you do.

MFTv Merry & Bright

This week’s episode of MFTv features the barest of pinks mixed with a hint of elegant silver. The Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics is used to cut three identical snowflakes that are attached together to form a beautiful three dimensional element for your cards and projects. This technique could be used to create delicate ornaments for a tree or window display as well!

Sunday Funday

One last hurrah of a fun trip to the Big Apple is documented in graphic, vivid style in Laina’s scrapbook layout this month. A simple, six-spot grid divided by a bold title strip is ideal for showcasing photos as well as acting as a canvas for a variety of embellishments. A black paper mat with a small scale pattern grounds the grid spots while a thin white border on each photo makes those spots feel extra-special.

LainaLamb_MFT_PerkUpCoffee_ScrapbookPage1

Laina used an ink blending tool and a rainbow of dye ink pads to create a beautiful gradient that evokes the colors that are dominant in the mural spotlighted in the upper left corner.

LainaLamb_MFT_PerkUpCoffee_InkBlend1

Laina used a design from the Coffee Cup Die-namics to create a peek-a-boo sentiment banner element.

LainaLamb_MFT_PerkUpCoffee_Detail1

The Coffee Cup Die-namics and Perk Up stamp set provided the perfect accents to fill one of the grid spots with theme-appropriate content. Hot chocolate while wandering the streets of NYC – you can’t beat that!

Ready to craft a layout of your own? We’ve got a sketch to get you going! Grab a handful of photos, a few content-appropriate embellishments and get to work. Keep it simple, or, spend some extra time getting crafty with your title work – our line of inks is always a great choice to get the creativity flowing. Make sure to tag #mftstamps on your social media uploads so we can see how MFT products have inspired your creativity – we’ll be on the lookout!
