This is my first go at the Ingenious Inking Challenge! I thought that I would jump in on this challenge because it seemed like it was something that I would enjoy. I love being creative-I am just a lazy crafter! I like simple-the less steps for me the better. My card for today's challenge is pretty simple-I used graduating circles to create sort of a 'bull's eye'! I started with the largest circle and colored inward with blending sponges. I really like how it turned out-after scrapping two other ideas!
If you haven't checked out the MFT's Blog be sure to do so-there are more projects there and you can find all the DT blog links for a lot more beautiful inspiration and ideas with color on color inking.
I love the theme for today's projects-ABC's & 123's! Letters & numbers die-namics. It gave me a reason to use my favorite letters & number dies. I love simple lettering with clean lines-they are such a classic. Lately, I tend to enjoy using the uppercase dies the most. I also prefer to have my letters pop off my project, flat is boring! The Peek-A-Boo letters are so cool smeared with some pink Gelatos-I really love this die-namic set. It has the clean & simple lines that I like-the holes gives it that perfect unexpected twist on a classic.
Have you taken a look at the selection of alphabet and number die-namics that MFT's has to offer? Be sure that you take a look at their assortment of die-namic letters-the Peek-A-Boo(link at the end of this post) are a must! And check out the MFT's Blog for more word die-namics inspiration.
What a time to be talking about florals-since spring has sprung! Thank goodness MFT's has such a wide variety of ways you can add some floral fancy to your projects. On my card today I used two different styles of their rolled flowers. I love adding flowers that stand out on my cards, especially in super bright colors. You have to take a look at all the styles of fantastic florals that MFT's has to offer-from the pretty selections of die-namics to wonderful stamps florals. MFT's gives you so many ways to add some florals to your projects.

If you are not already a MFT's Blueprints fan-you should be! If you are not sure of what they are-they are die-namic(die) sets that come with sketches. Which can make card making a breeze for those who like a bit of direction. I often like to do my own thing with them. I also love to mix them with different sets & die-namics. Today we are working with Blueprints that have scallops! Blueprints 4, 6, 8, 9, 14 and 22 have cool scallop elements in each set. For the card I made today I used BP 6 with a bit from BP22. BP6 is one of my favorite sest to use-I use that tag on so many of my cards. This is the first time that I have used the scallops!
There is more inspiration with Blueprints on the MFT's Blog. If you haven't tried any of the Blueprints die-namics I hope you have been inspired to give them a try.

Hello! I hope that you all had a fabulous Easter-we sure did! I spent a little bit of my Easter morning working on today's sneak peeks. I love my mornings in my studio while everyone's still sleeping. There was a Mad Men marathon on as I worked-I so needed to catchup on it. Peeks for today-Stitched Circle Frames die-namics(which is perfect for layering with other MFT's circle die-namics), LLD Organized Life Planner stamp set and LLD Family Life Planner stamp set. Always loving the cute planner stamps that Laina does-I think she's covered every life event!

We have hit the halfway point in the MFT's New Release Countdown! In just 2 days you will be able to start shopping for Aprils new stamps & die-namics. It is always nice to hear what you think about what you have seen so far-thank you for the great comments. Today my cards feature the Spring Garden die-namics-I used the cute little flowers with the flower pots. This die-namic set has lots of garden theme shapes, I wanted to do really simple cards. I wasn't as simple as I had planned on the second card-it has a strong fun pop with the black/white and bright colors. It's funny how easy it is to stray away from what you thought you would do!
