We're welcoming Angelica back to the Challenge & Inspiration blog with her take on this week's sketch.




Angelica designed an adorable birthday scene featuring the new A Mice Time to Celebrate stamp set. She replaced the large circular element with one of the cute little mice and used a balloon and a sentiment strip to complete the rest of the sketch layout.

Nicole created a brick wall with a grassy field in the distance, and used the sketch as inspiration for her sweet little gnome tucked inside the Happy Birthday Frame. To complete the sketch design, she added two clouds to the sky area with foam adhesive for some added dimension.

Torico used the sketch to design her incredible city landscape and highlighted her Super Cat in the large circular element. The added speech bubbles complement the scene nicely while the stamped Radiating Halftone background adds interest that really packs a punch!

You've Been Spotted - February 12, 2019


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!
 

Mindy Eggen
 

Mindy used the Heart Trio Shaker Window Die-namics to create a colorful window card with coordinating Tweethearts layered over each one. The gold embossed sentiment on the black card stock strip adds great contrast and really helps the colors stand out on the card design.

Mieke Wierenga


Die cutting a sentiment through a stamped panel is a great way to add interest to a card and keep the focus on the stamped images, while still adding a heartfelt greeting. Mieke used the Twice the Hugs die to create a dimensional sentiment and completed her design with an adorable owl image perched on top.

Kaja Vezensek


Leaving white space on a card adds a clean and simple look that keeps all of the focus on the stamped and die cut images. Kaja created a gorgeous layout with a unique triangle window design, that nicely highlights her ocean-themed images.

Ankita
 

Ankita created an adorable love-themed card featuring the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set and highlighted her scene with a large die cut window. The inked background adds a bright and cheery look to her card with all of the stamped and die cut layers adding detail and dimension.

Raluca Vezeteu


Raluca also featured a trio of windows on her card, opting for a circle design instead of the hearts, to create a colorful backdrop for her cute Birthday Chicks. A stamped sentiment strip on bright aqua card stock adds a striking pop of color amongst her images.
