MFT October Creative Challenge - Cork

Hi there everyone! It's time for the October Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things! This month the MFT Design Team was challenged to use the Cork Sheets that are offered in the MFT Boutique. I forgot how fun cork is to use while creating! Make sure you head on over to the MFT Blog for direct links to each participating designer.

MFT's cork sheets are so versatile. First and foremost, they can be cut with any of our Die-namics with ease. They can also be stamped, painted, misted, etc. For one of my cards I sponged a pattern with the Moroccan Tiles Stencil and Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and it looks awesome!

There is a complete link list at the bottom of this post.

Here is the first card. I love the look of stenciling on the cork.



Here is my second card. On this card I used the cork with my favorite Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose and Leaf-filled Flourish and they cut and rolled BEAUTIFULLY. I also used a different background stamp on each circle. Background stamps are my favorite stamps. I love having the ability to make any pattern combination with the plethora of background choices from MFT.

Below you will find links to all of the MFT products I used on my card.


Thanks for stopping by!

FABULOUS card, Jackie! LOVE all the cork. Your colors are great. I use the MFT cork a lot but mostly for flat flowers, leaves, borders, accents. Never tried to cut and roll a flower. I am so glad to know that it doesn't get crumbly or fall apart. I'll have to try it cause yours looks awesome. Thanks for sharing your fabulous card! :)
