Default Clean and Simple Creations with the MFT Design Team

The MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique.

This month, we were challenged to create fresh and clean projects - without the use of any pattern paper.

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have a clean and simple project to share with you today.

Clean and Simple cards are always tough for me, but I created a few cards which I hope fit this challenge. More details on how I created my cards can be found on my blog http://stampowl.blogspot.com/2013/02...nd-simple.html

When I cut out some of the Open Hexagon Borders Die-namics I got so many fun shapes from both the positive and negative aspects of the die. This card just kind of evolved. And, glory be, I stayed away from Pattern Paper. That's a possible first! The patterns (yeah, I had to have something) are actually from the Lisa Johnson Design Spring Backgrounds . (Houndstooth is so uptown!)

You can find all the details at my blog here: Good for My Heart

I created a couple CAS cards for this challenge. I was inspired to try a few different techniques out after taking the Clean & Simple Card Making 2 class. I used my MFT inks and Hearts & Stitches to create a rainbow of hearts for the first card. For my second card, I used distress stain and a water brush for the sun rays. On both cards I added some strips of sparkle with glitter and red line tape.

I focused on some of my favorite Die-namics and Stamp set combos for my clean and simple cards. My masculine card uses At the Movies , and my feminine card uses Sew Nifty . Please visit my blog post here for more photos and details.

While Clean and Simple is not my normal style, I have learned to embrace it! I created two cards for this months challenge. Enjoy.

Talk about a challenge! Clean and Simple and I just don't go well! LOL

After a couple of hours of frustration and a bunch of wasted cardstock, I decided to let my Die-namics do all the work!
