Gina K Wreath Builder at MFT

Hi there,

today MFT challenged the DT members to get creative with the Gina K Wreath Builder Templates. I really love this fantastic tool a lot. It's so simple and so so fun to make all kind of wreaths with it.

My card uses tree stamps to build a wreath. Using different green inks makes the wreath look more interesting and almost a bit three-dimensional. I think these wreaths are perfect to put a cute little critter in it.

You can get these Wreath Builder Templates directly from MFT. They come in two sizes to create 3 3/4'' and 4'' wreaths. It's an inexpensive and super duper fun thing to use in your craft room. I just love how versatile it is.
If you don't know, how to use this cool tool, there are super helpful videos on YouTube. Gina K has a video here -> Introducing the Wreath Builder System and I also recommend watching Jennifer McGuires videos on that topic. She's a genius.

The possibilities are endless. The Design Team came up with the most super fun ideas. Hop over to the MFT blog for more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day,

friends * MFT Color Challenge 118

Hello and welcome to our newest Color Challenge at the My Favorite Things Blog!

Did you know, that you can paint with your dye inks? Yes, you can!

I stamped the pots and the flowers in Antique Linen Distress Ink on some watercolor paper. To color my images, I smooshed some dye inks on a glass mat and picked up the colors using a water brush. Dye inks are water based and you can use them like you would use watercolors.
I started with a light wash of color and added more color (with less water) to create the look of dimension. After letting everything dry completely, I went in with some colored pencils to add a bit more depth and shadows to the project.

Now, I'm curious what you come up with. Get inspired by the color palette and share your creation on the MFT blog

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a colorful day,
