Karolyn used this week's sketch to inspire the layout of her winter landscape. She created depth and dimension by layering her elements with foam adhesive and added subtle detail to her scene with embossed snowflakes.

Torico extended her accent panel across her card front to feature a trio of warm wishes complete with hearts and hot steam. She added faux stitching detail around the edges of her card and a bold green sentiment strip for her greeting.

You've Been Spotted - December 12, 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!
 

Donna Hitz


We adore Donna's festive holiday tag featuring the Santa image from the Jingle All the Way stamp set. Her gorgeous coloring provides so much depth and dimension and makes her Santa come to life on her Christmas package.

Lam Sze Yi


Lam featured a whole party of characters on her holiday card! From Santa to a holiday mermaid, we're loving the great combination of stamp sets used on her design.

Kathy Behrendt


Would you believe these gorgeous holiday tags are made out of CD's? Kathy covered old CD's with patterned paper and then she created shaker tags with the adorable puppies from the Happy Pawlidays stamp set tucked inside. So innovative and fun!

Wei (craftworldofwei)


Extending an image through multiple windows on a card is a great way to unify a design and give it a unique look. Wei added a birch tree to her card that appears in both of the circle elements and completes her winter scene.

Bonnie Billings


Bonnie created a card featuring the Lip Balm Pouches and added rolled money inside instead of a lip balm. And it's Canadian money, so it perfectly matches her traditional holiday color palette. :)

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!

We're welcoming a brand new guest designer to the Challenge & Inspiration blog. Join us in extending a warm hello to Ashley Newell.



Ashley replaced the circle elements on the sketch with hexagons and created a beautifully designed habitat fit for any bee!  She added dimension behind the main panel with the bees flying about, complete with trail patterns. Whether or not you're a fan of bees, there's no denying how cute this card is. :)



Amy used the sketch as inspiration to create a winter tree on her card front complete with woodland critters. The Whimsical Woodgrain background with speckles of snow, brings the scene to life and really gives us that holiday feeling.


Donna kept her card design pretty similar to the sketch, but used one sentiment strip instead of two, placed in between her two circle elements. She created a vibrant blue and green backdrop behind both of her adorable hedgehog images and added subtle tone-on-tone stamping to her background.
