January 2012 Design Team Creative Challenge: Masculine

Welcome to the January 2012 Design Team Creative Challenge! Each month, we challenge our Design Team to create projects within a special theme, or using a specific product line.  This month, we’ve asked our designers to create masculine themed projects.  I hear time and time again from stampers, that creating masculine projects are often the most difficult…put your crafty purchases to work and get ready to create fabulous cards, projects and pages for all the guys in your life!

Lots of our designers have jumped on board to create cards and projects for the men in our lives!  You’ll find that lots of the girls have shared their particular tips and “rules” for creating smashing cards for the guys!  I hope you’ll find a sample or two that will work for you, and we look forward to seeing YOUR masculine MFT Projects too….

You’ll find masculine project ideas today from:

October DesignTeam Creative Challenge

Each month, the MFT Design Team takes on a specific technique or project theme…. today we’ve asked the girls to “Get Negative.”  Don’t worry, they’re not changing their otherwise sunny dispositions… they’re going to illustrate fun projects designed utilizing the “negative space” created when you use a Die-namics die!

For example, take a look at this fun project from Karen, featuring the use of the Flat Bottom Cloud Die-namics, File Tab Die-namics and Pumpkin Patch Pure Innocence.

This is a great way to let your Die-namics do double duty.  You can use the Die-cut shape and then make a second project using the leftovers!  I love being able to make your crafty investments work hard for you!

The following designers have accepted the challenge and have samples for you today…

September’s Design Team Creative Challenge

After a few days break from the new release, our Designers are back at it. Today we have several designers playing along in our Design Team Creative Challenge!   This month, we asked the girls to embrace a clean and simple, no coloring style. That’s right, back away from the pencils and markers.  Its a clean and crisp look that we’ve seen in blogland lately. Are you ready to see who embraced the challenge and did *not* color today?

As an example, let’s take a look at what Wendy has not colored up for you….

Here’s links to the designers playing along today, we can’t wait to see how you interpret this month’s challenge – there are lots of ways to embrace clean and simple and still have a finished looking card – have fun!

August Design Team Creative Challenge – Fun Folds

Our fabulous Design Team members are ready to inspire you again today in our monthly Design Team Creative Challenge. This month, Christina challenged the team to play with non-traditional card folds in their projects.  They’re all free to use any stamp or Die-namic of their choosing, but can not make a standard folded card.  There are SO many creative ways to fold your cards, I can hardly wait to see what the girls have come up with today.

Be sure to visit each of the following designers that have taken up this month’s challenge, and, if you’re ready to jump on board and show us some of those fancy folds yourself, you’ll want to join us on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers to strut your stuff!

Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, the girls are On a Roll!

I’m really excited to see how the girls have interpreted this month’s challenge! Will they use our many Rolled Flower Die-namics, or will they find another way to make those projects roll?  I’m sure these clever girls have a few fun ideas for you!

If you’re inspired to get On a Roll yourself, then I hope you’ll add your project to our MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers so that we can see what you’ve been up to!

May Design Team Creative Challenge

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you’ll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, Eva and Arlene have challenged us to give monochromatic coloring a try!

We have so many designers lined up today with a little eye candy with this fun technique, and if you like what they see and want to give it a try, the girls will each be sharing the marker colors they used to achieve the effect.  We hope you’ll enjoy our project, and that you’ll give monochromatic coloring a try yourself!
