MFT DT Creative Challenge: On a Roll!

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, we're On a Roll!  Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!

MFT now has several rolled flowers in the Die-namics lineup: Rolled Daisy, Rolled Flower, Rolled Rose, Mini Rolled Roses, and Large Rolled Rose. These dies make it SO easy to create rolled embellishments for your projects.

It's fun to think out of the box and explore different ways to use the Die-namics -- and this challenge allowed me to do just that! I couldn't help but notice that the Rolled Daisy, when cut from Puff Cloud White felt and tightly rolled, looks very much like a pom pom... so that's the direction I took with my card. :)  Tip: This works best with felt, because paper doesn't have the same softness and movement needed to create the pom pom effect.


This sweet Pure Innocence Cheerleader was just too perfect to use with these Rolled Daisy pom poms. I paired the image with some papers from the Lime Twist - Out of the Blue pad by My Mind's Eye. I used the Die-namics Fishtail Banner and the Typewriter Alphabet to create the sentiment banner.


I finished the inside simply, with paper and a sentiment. 



Don't forget to stop by Kim's Blog to see which designers are On a Roll!  Thanks so much for stopping by today -- I'll be back tomorrow for Wednesday Stamp Club! :)

Have a great day!
