I had such a blast with this challenge! I've created my two cards with no patterned paper to really show off the fab MFT colours!

My first combo is bright and fun - Sweet Tooth , Orange Fizz , Sour Apple and Blu Raspberry .

My second combo is perfect for vintage style cards - Whip Cream , Electric Red , Natural (with Kraft ink) and Black Licorice .

For all the deets on my two cards and lots of photos, please see my blog post here .

There are so many gorgeous possibilities with MFT Replenishments, but one of my very faves is Razzle Berry, Lemon Drop, Pink Lemonade, and Sour Apple. Sweet Tooth and Black Licorice are perfect neutrals for this bright combo. I made two cards using the combo today.

For details and more pictures, please visit my blog.

Another fun color combo I enjoy is Electric Red , Nightshift Blue , Lemon Drop , and Gumdrop Green , a fun twist on primary colors.

My favourite colour combinations vary a little, depending on the season, but currently I really drawn to orange, blue and green. I combined Orange Fizz , Blu Raspberry , and Sour Apple for a fresh colour combination with a springy feel.

One of my go-to color combos is blue-green with a splash of red or pink. My first card uses Sno Cone with Kraft and Sweet Tooth plus a splash of pink for a soft Easter card. My second card combines Blu Raspberry and Electric Red with lots of white and a pinch of Steel Grey.

I chose to use MFT's Grape Jelly paired with Black Licorice, Sweet Tooth and a touch of Gumdrop Green. I made three cards with this color combo.

I had lots of fun with this challenge! I created a bright, cheery Easter card using Blu Raspberry, Razzle Berry, Lemon Drop, Sour Apple and Grape Jelly Ink. My second card features Razzle Berry and Black Licorice card stock.

I also created a series of tags for a card stock, ink and ribbon sampler. I am so excited to finally have this resource on my desk.
