Your MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team is here again with six inspiring cards using this color palette. Let's see what has been going on in their creative minds.

Alice colors up a cute elf from the Santa's Elves stamp set as a result of this color combination. I love how she creates a textured snowfall using the Snowfall stencil as a backdrop to her fabulous coloring.

Erin Lee gets dramatic with the darker colors of the combination and the Chunky Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics. Add in a Tropical Flowers, Leafy Greenery, and the Happy Hellos Die-namics, and this design makes quite an impact!

Jill uses the negatives of the Proof Positive Cover-Up Die-namics to create this punchy and graphic design. You'll notice she uses only a titch of the colors creating a lot of glorious white space. It's positively amazing!

Miriam pulls out the Ride The Wave Die-namics for this super cool card. Steel Grey is a perfect alternative for stamping sentiments (hers is from the Geek is Chic stamp set) instead of black! And the enamel dots give the the design the certain something to finish it off.

Not surprisingly, girly Vera gravitates toward the pink in our 36th color combination. It makes a super sweet background (using the English Brick Wall stencil) for the merry little elf from the Santa's Elves stamp set. The sentiment from the Hand Lettered Holiday set adds a touch of elegance as well as the sparkly sequins.

Veronica layers three different sized hearts using the Stitchable Heart STAX Die-namics in three different colors on a pristine white background. The Lace Background stamp adds such a pretty touch to the largest heart.
