MFT 2020 Card Design Superstar Challenge: Clean & Simple Genius

This challenge is incredible and so are the prizes that are offered.  My friend, Nancy encouraged me to join in.  I  guess that all I need was a challenge and a little encouragement.  I set out to color a card with the stamp set called Flowers in Bloom.  I love the look of poppies and colored them that way.  I used an under paint technique with Copic markers.  B24, R29, R27, and R 24.  The stems are G99 and G94.  After the coloring was complete, I die cut the panel with the Bold Beautiful die. That die is amazing as it has an outline that can be replaced, and that is what I did.  I cut it a second one from black cardstock and replaced the white outline with the black.  The entire die was popped out with more black cardstock and then on the front of the card.

Double D Challenge - Don't Fence Me In!

It is a good thing that we have this mood board for inspiration as I was not sure what I would do for a card for this challenging Challenge. I was thinking Coyboy or horses, but instead, I when with a die that I have not used yet. 

I will get right to my card. 

This card is Paper Trey Ink all the way.  The dies cuts are from Make It Market Garden Gate set.  
I don't believe that it is available any longer. 
The grass on the bottom is My Favorite Things die.

This is the inside. More dies, and stamping, no coloring on this card. 

And there is a prize for a random winner 
Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches - Wooden Gate & Fence

Almost all of the making for this card or one like it.

Double D Challenge - Colorful

           Do you believe that it is September and we have a new challenge for you this next two weeks.  Diane has chosen a fabulous theme as well. 
This time you just need to do colorful designs but we do have a mood board for inspiration. 

I had just made a colorful background while watching Gina K's Stamp and Chat.  I used the circle background stamp from Simon Says, white embossing powder and washi tape from my stash. 
 Velum for the greeting. 
I added the lily from The Greetery 
                     I really love this die from The Greetery and made a ton of the lily's and the leaves. 
There is a prize of course for a random winner

Be sure to stop over and see the Double D Challenge post and the entire team
