Hi there! I'm back with the December Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things. This month's challenge is called Background Building. The goal is to build a background using any MFT stamps and dies, no patterned paper!
I love all of the new backgrounds stamp sets that MFT has released over the last few months, especially Darling Dots from Lisa Johnson Designs, specifically the large dotted background. I knew I would use this particular stamp on my project, as this set just sits on my desk within hand's reach :)
I started with some Instagram pics I had printed that were taken on Mother's Day earlier this year. I LOVE these pics of me and my girls and knew I had to get them on a scrapbook page.
The title was a combination of fonts using my Silhouette and the Die-namics High Rise Uppercase Alphabet. The ampersand is layered on a Pink Lemonade Circle STAX. I added some machine stitching through each word to make it stand out a little more.
I used Die-namics Lead the Way for the vellum arrow pointing to the bottom picture. Some more vellum was used for the Decorative Doily. Layered on top of the doily is a Hearts A Plenty heart cut from corrugated cardstock and a Plentiful Petals flower that was first stamped with the graph stamp from Journal It: Graph Paper Notes and finished with a Pink Lemonade button and some Hemp Cord.
Here's another Plentiful Petals flower, again stamped with the Journal It: Graph Paper Notes graph stamp and finished with a Pink Lemonade button and Hemp Cord. It's layered on another vellum Lead the Way arrow.
Another flower on the left side of the page (rule of thirds!).
And another Lead the Way arrow cut from vellum.
The Die-namics I used:
