Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 228

Welcome to another edition of the Wednesday Sketch Challenge here at the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog! We're delighted to have you here with us soaking up ideas and creativity.

Below you'll find Sketch 228. Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this week's sketch and be sure to link your project below for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.

It's great to have our May Guest Designer Lorena Cantó back with us again today! 

Lorena is a fabulous stamper, but what I love about her style is the innate sense of joy she shows in the form of an A2 card. Somehow she injects a whole lot of energy into her designs that is utterly captivating! And this lady knows how to think outside the box when it comes to die cutting. Let's take a look at the inspiration she took from this week's sketch!

You Amaze Me Card from Lorena Cantó featuring the Buildable Blooms stamp set and Die-namics

Lorena concentrated on the curve at the bottom of the sketch. I love what she did with it using the new Blueprints 25 Die-namics! Her margins fit the sketch as well, and what a beautiful garden she's created with the Buildable Blooms stamp set and Die-namics.

The Challenge Team approached this challenging sketch in some pretty inspiring ways! Let's take a peek of what they created this week.

Have a Super Day Card by Alice Wertz featuring the You're Super stamp set

Alice chose to feature our fearless caped female from the You're Super stamp set for this week's sketch. If you look carefully, her head is the circle of the sketch and her body is the long rectangle down the middle. I love that little yellow enamel dot peeking out at the bottom (like the star in the sketch). It's just an unexpected touch!

Tickled Pink Card by Erin Lee Schreiner featuring the Laina Lamb Design Tickled Pink stamp set and Flamingo Die-namics

Erin ramped up the trendy with this gold, neon, and flamingo concoction. Our new Cross-Stitch Circle STAX Die-namics serve as the perfect circle as seen in the sketch, and those Flamingo Die-namics sure are making a splash!

I Love You Tag by Jill Dewey Hawkins featuring the Build-able Blooms and Stitched Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics

Jill obviously had a date with her manual die-cutting machine. Look at all of that glorious inlaying she did with the Build-able Blooms, Stitched Circle and Stitched Traditional Tag STAX, Blueprints 25, and Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics.

Super Friend Card by Miriam Prantner featuring the You're Super stamp set

Miriam turned the sketch upside down in order to ground the super powerful super friend.
Turning the sketch at a different angle is always a fantastic way to survey your creative options!

We Flamingo Together Card by Vera Wirianta Yates featuring the Laina Lamb Design Tickled Pink stamp set and Flamingo Die-namics

Vera pieced together a gorgeous flamingo to serve as the focal point of this sketch. I absolutely adore how she created a scene on the tag. And what she did with the wing is absolutely breathtaking!

I Hope Your Day Rocks Card by Veronica Zalis featuring the Pure Innocence Heartstrings stamp set and DIe-namics

Veronica's take on the sketch puts our sweet girl from the Pure Innocence series at center stage using the brand new Heartstrings stamp set and Die-namics. The cross-stitched oval serves as the curve at the bottom of the sketch, but otherwise, Veronica was loose with her adorable sketch interpretation.
