MFT Lesson #9 Secondary Colors

Howdy!  I'm here with another card for My Favorite Things Summer School, this time for lesson #9 which is all about using secondary colors.

Secondary Colors are the direct counterparts of the primary colors — red, yellow, and blue. Orange (a combination of red and yellow), green (a combination of blue and yellow), and purple (a combination of red and blue) are the secondary colors. You can find them in between their primary colors on the color wheel.

I stamped some balloons from MFT's Sweet BD Wishes using Wplus9 Cockleshell and Beanstalk inks, and Hero Arts Fresh Peach shadow ink.  The peach color is showing up more pink here than IRL, it's definitely peachy!  The little hearts inside the balloons are from MFT Cheerful Blessings, and the dots are from Paper Smooches.  I used the Happy Birthday die cut that I got for free from MFT this month, LOVE how this die pops away from the card!  I added some color to the sentiment with a sponge.  Popped the white panel up on a PTI Melon Berry card stock base.

That's all for today, thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. You did a beautiful job on this Diane! I love the soft colors you chose and the pop out birthday die looks amazing!

  2. What a wonderful, happy card! Love the sentiment die cut. It gives a really unique look to your design.
