Design Team Creative Challenge




Welcome to the My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Challenge.  Each month, we're asked to work within a special theme or technique, or with a particular product line. With Mother's Day right around the corner, we wanted to create lots of samples for you to help you get a jump start on YOUR Mother's Day projects.

I've had an idea with the Paper Doll Border in my head for weeks, and today's little assignment was just the right timing. I paired the new Jumbo Banner Day STAX with Paper Doll Die-namics cut from corrugated cardboard, and then popped up just ONE of the paper dolls in pink paper.  That one there, she's the best mom ever. :)  That teeny tiny heart is from the Notched Tag Die-namics.  The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Mothers



In keeping with the "fresh and clean" feel of my first card, I kept playing with those fun STAX Jumbo Banner Day elements, and pulled out my beloved By the Letters Die-namics too. I went diving through my button jar and got covered in my crackle white paint.  I do love this cheery sentiment, also from Clearly Sentimental About Mothers.  



Be sure to head on over to the MFT Blog today for lots of samples from my pals on the MFT Design Team. I'm sure you'll find some projects that jumpstart creative ideas for your upcoming Mother's Day stamping.  Have fun!

Oh my...both of your cards are lovely. I like the CAS look and design of them both. I like the one highlighted paperdoll on the first card and like how mom pops on the second card. Both are so beautiful.
