Color Palette Challenge Review

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 8 projects. We’re thinking ahead to autumn and more subdued colors with this month’s palette. Kraft, Orange Fizz, Fuse Green, and Nightshift Blue combine to work as a non-traditional Halloween scheme or a gender-neutral combo appropriate for any number of occasions. Dominant Kraft or Nightshift Blue provides a neutral base for pops of Orange Fizz and Fuse Green or, go crazy relying on some of the more vibrant colors in the mix to prevail.

Sharon started with a Nightshift Blue Card Stock Base and then layered on some tone-on-tone elements. The sentiment, from the Spotlight Sentiments stamp set, is balanced by a Panel cut with Blueprints 18 and “watercolored” with Fuse Green, Nightshift Blue, and Orange Fizz Premium Dye Inks using the Jumbo Polka Dot Stencil.

Lisa’s card features card stock, Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze, and the Geek Is Chic stamp set and Geek Is Chic Glasses Die-namics from Laina Lamb Design - that’s it! And it’s fabulous! Stamping the glasses image in the full complement of this month’s color palette results in the coolest patterned paper.

Tone-on-tone stamping in Orange Fizz and Fuse Green provides the subtlety while Nightshift Blue on Kraft provides the *pop* on Julie’s fun card! The die-cut panels from Blueprints 18 make an appearance again here.

Sharon’s card features groovy ghosts populating the Square Grid Cover-Up Die-namics. The Spooky Scene Die-namics features a trio of ghoulish goblins for maximum design options. A phrase from the Spooky Sentiments set completes the look.

Color Palette Challenge Review

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 7 projects. Sno Cone, Banana Split, Blu Raspberry, and Tangy Orange is an eye-catching combination that will work wonderfully for summer themed projects as well as all-occasion cards. It’s a divine choice for birthday cards too which just so happens to fit in quite nicely with the party theme of our July release. Let’s see how our designers chose to dip into this palette!

6a00d83451b90869e201a3fd2e9e62970b-550wi

Sharon’s version of this month’s palette features lots of color. From the base of her card to her die-cut flag and sentiment, she didn’t shy away. I love how she used the File Folder Edges Die-namics to create that shaped panel as well!

6a00d8341c585053ef01a511dbb87b970c-450wi

Lisa started with a Smooth White Card Stock base and layered on color with the incredibly fun new Confetti Background for her card. The Celebrate You stamp set and Die-namics  is perfect for birthday cards but you’ll grab it for lots of other occasions as well!

6a00d834515aa769e201a73de8e9ab970d-500wi

Banana Split shines in Amy’s inspiring card and tag. The Grid Stencil is such a fun way of adding color and texture to your projects.

Jody went painterly by adding beautiful washes of color over a panel stamped with the new Happy Birthday Background. She included  additional layers of color by cutting her Happy Die-namics from 4 different colors and adhering them together – such a fun surprise!

Color Palette Challenge Review

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 6 projects. This month’s palette of Natural, Sweet Tooth, Spearmint, and Nightshift Blue includes a range of colors from light to dark that allows you to create vastly different looks by simply switching up the dominant and accent colors. Let’s see how our designers chose to dip into this palette!

6a00d834eaf91453ef01a3fd17de39970b-800wi

A hearty dose of Nightshift Blue, grounded by a thin white border, allows the Spearmint die cuts to to shine on Cindy’s card. How could your recipient not smile after reading that sassy sentiment?

DCarriereSmile

Debbie and Cindy took similar routes design-wise – both choosing a stamped patterned background and matching placement of the TRANSFORM-ables Smile Die-namics, but the difference is evident in their choice of dominant color.

JUNE MFT Dad

We’re simply loving all of the fun ways the Peek-a-Boo Alphabet Uppercase Die-namics are being put to use! Those pierced holes are perfect for adding some texture with a little stitching. You’ll notice that each of our three designers thus far have went with a different base color and all three look amazing!

6a00d83451b90869e201a73dd4e856970d-550wi

Sharon went with a neutral base as well. Mixing in a few of the new June release products – Sending Big Hugs, You Mean the World to Me, Ampersand, and Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX, she achieved a sweet design perfect for so many different recipients.

Color Palette Challenge Review

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 5 projects. Pretty pastels that include Kraft, Berrylicious, Sno Cone, and Pink Lemonade make this month’s offerings a soothing collection, indeed. Let’s take a closer look at what our design team has been inspired to create with the combo.

MFTMay2014CPchallengeCard

Mona chose to shake things up with a pretty vellum pocket filled with confetti (Butterfly confetti!) The InstaFrame Die-namics is a smart choice for the shaker element. The Fishnet Cover-Up Die-namics adds texture while the Winged Beauties stamps provides the perfect sentiment..

IMG_7996

A kraft base is the perfect foil to bright white and pastels. And that banner? Sherrie was so creative to use the Party Hat Border Die-namics, made fancy with a variety of our background stamps, to add that happy accent. A mix of sentiments from the Birthday Sentiments set is all that’s needed to complete the look.

May-CDD3-and-CPC5

Kim used the new Can’t Wait to See You set from our Pure Innocence line as the focal point for her charming design. Pieces from the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics cut from Sno Cone Card Stock, and stamped with the Wood Plank Background, serve as the perfect base to that darling girl.

Kraft, Berrylicious, Sno Cone, and Pink Lemonade mix and mingle their way to a peaceful and zen-like calm that any card or project would benefit from. It’s hard not to think of sherbet and summer when you lay eyes on this pretty palette.

It’s time to do a check in on Color Palette Challenge 4 projects. Our NaturalRazzle BerryBlu Raspberry, and Gumdrop Green palette is a vivid reminder of the beauty of spring. Let’s take a closer look at what our design team has been inspired to create with the combo.

6a00d834515aa769e201a5119b0f63970c-500wi

The Cloudy Day Stencil provided the perfect guide for adding some fluffy white clouds to a brilliant Blu Raspberry sky on Amy’s card. Cheer someone up with the Blue Skies Ahead stamp set paired with the incredibly fun and realistic Layered Umbrella Die-namics.

6a00d834eaf91453ef01a3fceb72cf970b-800wi

Cindy took a different approach choosing to focus on the more neutral colors and adding bright pops of color in her choice of sentiment and accent colors. The On the Diagonal Background stamp will quickly become a favorite thanks to its versatility and playfulness.

APRIL MFT NPL2

Our latest Blueprints set provided everything Jodi needed to assemble this cheerful card. When you want to finish a beautiful card but lack the time or inspiration to start from scratch, our Blueprints line is the answer!
