Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 307

Welcome to a new sketch from the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog. We're so glad you've decided to pay us a visit, and we hope that you'll be inspired!

Below you'll find Sketch 307. 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.

The My Favorite Things Creative Team has been busy getting creative! Let's see what they have up their sleeves for Sketch 307!

Handmade card from Anna Kossakovskaya featuring Soak Up the Fun stamp set and Die-namics, Whimsical Waves Background, and Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX and Blueprints 29 Die-namics #mftstamps

The focal rectangle of this week's sketch is the perfect spot to create a cute scene like Anna did! The Whimsical Waves Background stamp paired with the Soak Up the Fun stamp set and Die-namics makes for a very fun card for a friend of loved one!

Join me in welcoming back Shemaine Smith as our Guest Designer this month! Let's see how Shemaine interpreted this week's sketch:

Handmade card from Shemaine Smith featuring Birdie Brown Polar Bear Pals stamp set and Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames Die-namics #mftstamps

With some masterful masking, Shemaine framed up three adorable Polar Bear Pals for Sketch 307! I love her icy color combination with some silver sparkle. You can almost feel the nip in the air!

Handmade card from Torico featuring Winter Wonderland, Birdie Brown Beast Friends and Magical Friends stamp sets, Bold Diagonal Stripes Background stamp, Stitched Basic Edges, and Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics #mftstamps

Torico's delightful take on Sketch 307 incorporates some fun mixing of stamp sets! The Magical Dragon gets a festive santa hat from the Beast Friends stamp set and two cute trees are all aglow on this magical design.

Handmade card from Jody Morrow featuring Snowfall of Blessings stamp set, Simply Snowflakes stamp set and Die-namics, Single Stitch Line Square Frames and Blueprints 13 Die-namics #mftstamps

Oooooooh, pretty! Jody elongated the rectangle into a square and features a sky full of candy-colored snowflakes on this lovely design.

Handmade card from Karolyn Loncon featuring Playful Pups stamp set and Die-namics, Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX and Blueprints 16 Die-namics  #mftstamps

Awww, cute! Karolyn found that the puppy stamp with the train from the Playful Pups stamp set would be the perfect orientation for the rectangle in this sketch. The rest of the card is pure white to focus on the cute puppies.

Handmade card from Keisha Campbell featuring Deer Friends stamp set, Lined Up Dots Background stamp, Oh Christmas Trees, Wonky Stitched Square STAX, and Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics #mftstamps

Keisha turns the rectangle into a square to feature one super-sparkly, sequin-encrusted Christmas tree. Her traditional Christmas colors make for a festive holiday card design!

Handmade card from Barbara Anders featuring Birdie Brown Polar Bear Pals stamp set and Die-namics, Whimsical Waves Background stamp, and Stitched Snow Drifts, Puffy Clouds, Stitched Cover-Up Companion - Vertical, Blueprints 13, Blueprints 21, and Blueprints 25 Die-namics #mftstamps

Who could suppress a smile upon seeing this adorable polar bear skating by to say hello? Barbara's sweet card is a delightful take on Sketch 307, for sure!
