My Favorite Things - Outside the Box Challenge: The Great Outdoors!

Hello Friends!

I'm back today with another fun project that was inspired by the Outside the Box Challenge! I so love card challenges to get my creative juices flowing, especially when I'm in a creative slump! I LOVED this challenge because I had a ton of ideas for it! But in the end, I executed one of those ideas, and was pretty darned happy with the result! This month's Outside the Box Challenge is "outdoor scenes!" MFT has so many wonderful products that are perfectly suited to that theme! I pulled out my Sunny Vibes Stamp Set (because cute Love Bug Van!), and paired it with the Outside the Box Level Up, Outside the Box Snow Drifts (that I made into sand dunes), and the Outside the Box Waves Die-Namics.

I mean, come on! If this isn't the sunniest outdoor scene you've ever seen, then I'll eat my hat! And I had a blast creating it! I did a bit of masking on the background layer, and ink blended some sun rays and sky using the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil and some Lemon Drop, Razzle Berry and Summer Splash Dye Inks! I stamped, colored and die cut the images from the Sunny Vibes Stamp Set, and attached them to the sand dunes. I stamped the sentiment using the new formula of Milk Chocolate Dye Ink! People: I LOVE the new dye inks! They are so delicious! You MUST try them! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other fantabulous projects that my fellow teammates have created for you! And while you're there, why not link up an Outside the Box outdoor scene project of your own! Because if you do, you'll be eligible to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique! It's a random draw, but you can't win if you don't play!

That's it for me today, friends! I'll be back soon with another crafty project! Until then, please take care of yourselves and have a wonderful day!
