My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest: Innovation Master Category

Happy Thursday everyone! Have you entered the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest? There are 3 different categories you can join for a chance at winning a $250 shopping spree at My Favorite Things!! WOO HOO!! They will select 15 people (5 winners from each of the 3 categories) to win the shopping spree. Can you believe that?!! The deadline is tonight at 9:00pm CST though so HURRY!!

I knew I wanted to enter the Innovation Master Category, and create an awesome scene with a Bendi Fold Card. I wasn't sure if I would be able to pull it off due to time constraints, but I finally finished it!! Talk about "under the wire"! This card not only has a slider for the animals on the front to take a ride down the slope, but it also has a pull tab so the hot air balloon rises up. This card features a lot of MFT Stamps Sets and Dies!

Here is the full view of the Bendi Card featuring some cute and adorable farm animals from the Farm Friends Stamp Set! The animals in the wheelbarrow are on a slider so they roll down the slope when you tilt the card. How FUN is that?!! I used the dies in the MFT Die-namics Hit The Slopes set for both the slider and lift tab and the grassy slopes.

The grassy lines were made using a stamp from Ewe Are The Best Stamp Set. I just stamped using the Versamark Watermark Ink onto green cardstock and then rubbed darker green chalk over the lines.

Here is the left panel open where you can see the two cows and a little mouse peeking out. The tree trunk was stamped with Versamark Watermark Ink onto brown cardstock, and darker brown chalk rubbed over the lines. The same for the tree foliage. The oval from MFT Die-namics Well-Worn Greeting was the perfect size.

The hot air balloon with the little puppy and the little house under the tree are from the Up In The Air Stamp Set. The balloon part was again stamped in Versamark Watermark Ink and rubbed with chalk in rainbow colors!! The little flower on the hot air balloon came from the Somebunny Stamp Set and stamped in a random pattern.
The "Lift Me" sentiment is part of a longer sentiment in the Up In the Air Stamp Set. Here is a picture of the hot air balloon lifted up. The little clouds were made using a stamp from the Somebunny Stamp Set. I made the cloud background with the MFT Die-namics Stitched Cloud Edges and blue chalk.

Have an awesome Thursday my friends! Be sure to head over to the My Favorite Things Blog to see the different categories with all the amazing entries so far! The judges are definitely going to be challenged picking winners...that's for sure!
