MFT Color Challenge 17

Today's MFT Color Challenge is a fun one. We are showcasing treat containers from SRM Stickers. You'll find these products so versatile for festive gifts and treats. Simply add some My Favorite Things stamps, stencils, and dies for something decidedly sweet!

Our featured colors feel almost like a cool ocean breeze  Primitive WhiteSteel Blue, Coral Crush, and Tropical Teal.

Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this color combination and be sure to link your project below for a chance at a My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.

Let's take a creative journey with the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team and see how they used this color scheme.

Alice stamped on the pillow box in three of the colors and then added the die cut sentiment in Steel Blue. Love the sweet coloring of the bunny!

Taken alone, this glassine bag is translucent for a peek at what's inside. Erin Lee dressed it up with the colors from Color Challenge #17 and dies and stamps from My Favorite Things. A happy little surprise, indeed!

Jill used Versamark to stamp the background pattern on this treat bag. And how fantastic does our color combination look on that fishtail flag? Jill combined the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics with the fishtail flag to create this pretty pattern.

Miriam took a graphic approach to her creation creating a cool shadow effect with the LOVE Die-namic cut twice and staggered. You'll notice she layered the Fishtail Flags as well for a striking design. A little stitching at the top secures her card stock perfectly.

Vera dressed up her cute treat bag with a stencil. Add an adorable colored image, a doily, and a sentiment, and this becomes sweet packaging for a pet loving friend. Steel Blue is the perfect color for that tiny mouse! And who wouldn't want a ball of Tropical Teal yarn?

Veronica's treat bag has all of the delicious fixings to make anyone's day. That donut looks delicious in our color combination, don't you agree? The hemp cord is the perfect match for the bag.
