Keeway has used the frame in this week's sketch to spotlight a sweet birdbath scene. I'm Tweet on You provided everything necessary to craft her adorable look.

Julie kept her frame relatively open, choosing instead to accent the frame itself with her sentiment and scene. I love how she coordinated the coloring of her her owl, from For Owl You Do, with her die-cut balloons.

You've Been Spotted - June 27, 2017

Each week we see fantastic projects featuring My Favorite Things product, and we're always so thrilled to see what our customers and followers are creating!

Today, we'd like to shine the spotlight on some awesome projects that have caught our attention in another edition of You've Been Spotted


If you see your project featured, feel free to post this image on your blog and link to this post to show the world that you were spotted by My Favorite Things!



Diana created this get well card for an ailing aunt. Doodled Blooms features irresistibly fun florals that are perfect for some creative color play. Her orange, pink, and grey palette is sure to bring some cheer!



Would you just check out Amy's coloring? Those eyes draw you in — simply Mermazing. I'm enchanted by the swirling colors she's used to create the background and completely charmed by her characters.



Natasha's card is so sweet in its simplicity. I can see using that simple watercolor stripe backdrop technique for so many themes and occasions! Her pretty palette of blues is the perfect complement to her Ocean Pals though.



Sweet Safari features SIX sweet animals but Jannie chose to focus on the giraffe. He stands alone on this striking look that also features a beautifully coordinated envelope.



Come fly away with YoonYoung and her darling Up in the Air look. Her layering skills and pattern-mixing abilities are on full display. I'm inspired by that monochromatic coloring of the hot air balloon as well!

Which design is your favorite this week? Be sure to leave these talented folks some love. And who knows? You might be spotted sometime soon!

Sketch 338 #mftstamps
Joni is joining us again today with her take on our newest sketch.


Joni has rotated the sketch on its side turning the frame into a background panel and the heart into a porthole accent for her partying pirates.

Torico softened the look of the frame element in this week's sketch by adding a soft wash of watercolor and delicate scallops and stitching. The heart was interpreted as two diamonds (isn't it great how the almost rounded tops of the layered diamonds emulate an actual heart?) and the visual triangle of dots was perfectly translated into a trio of sequins.

Anna went clean, fresh, and simple with her interpretation. Adding a colorful pastel rainbow with the Radiating Rays Stencil provides all the background necessary to allow her happy fairy to shine.
