MFTeaser and ATS Wednesday Challenge

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I have two things to share with you today! First is another MFTeaser. I made this card with the sets Nature Calls and What's Your Sign?. Both will be released tonight! The layout is Cindy's MFT Sketch #42. I stamped, colored and cut out a second backpack and mounted it over the first with dimensionals. I drew in the grass line and sponged Old Olive ink around the circle. I used Karen Foster mini screw brads on the signs. The patterned paper is Garden Party by My Mind's Eye.

Tonight is the MFT New Release Cocktail Party from 9-11 pm EST at the MFT Forum on SCS. There will be more MFTeasers, prizes, and you can find out how YOU can be the next Guest Designer! I have had such a great time being the GD this month -- I can't believe it's almost over! I can't thank Kim and the DT enough for choosing me!!! :)

The second card I have to share is for today's ATS Wednesday Challenge. I'll tell you, these colors really had me stumped -- I just didn't know where to go with them. Finally, I came up with something -- my first acetate card! I followed the SCS tutorial found HERE.

I used the C.C. Designs set Beautiful Butterflies, and I inked the image with SU! markers. The scalloped edge on the artichoke panel was cut with Fiskars decorative scissors. I added Primas, half pearls, and organdy ribbon. There is also a panel inside for a sentiment or handwritten message.

If you want to play along with the color challenge, use keyword ATSDTC12 when uploading to a public gallery. Design Team samples should be posted to the ATS Blog later on -- you can leave a link to your project there, too!

I hope you'll be back tomorrow -- my week of previews continues! It's time to start unveiling the C.C. Designs August releases -- you're gonna LOVE 'em!!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by today -- I really do appreciate it!
