Hi friends! It’s Wednesday, which means there’s a new weekly Sketch Challenge on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog. It’s the last Wednesday in February, so that means this is my last guest post for the MFT Sketch Challenge. A big Thank You goes out to My Favorite Things for inviting me to be a Featured Designer this month. I’ve enjoyed playing with all the sketches, and I hope I’ve given you all a little inspiration along the way.
For those of you that are new to the Sketch Challenge, it’s a weekly challenge in which you can create and link up any project you make inspired from the sketch provided. And the best part is you’ll have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to the MFT shop!
Here’s this week’s sketch:
I used the adorable Stacey Yacula It’s A Mice Time To Celebrate stamp set for my card.
I stamped all the images from the stamp set and picked out a color pallet of Copic Markers. I love these pinks, teals, and yellows together. (I also used R00 for belly and ears, YR23 and Y21 for darkest and lightest yellows.)
I used the coordinating Die-namics to cut the images out. After picking a sentiment out from the stamps, I picked a matching mouse, then set the others aside for another card. I stamped the sentiment onto black card stock with embossing ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I trim the paper down to a strip, and added a fishtail at the end of the strip. To assemble the card, I used the largest rectangle for the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX to trim a white card stock panel, and a pattern paper from the Painted Prints Smitten paper pack. I cut the pattern paper at an angle, and glued it to the white card panel. I glued a very thin black trim above the pattern paper. I added the sentiment with thin foam adhesive, and added the dancing mouse and present above it. I attached the card front to craft foam, then glued the foam to an A2 size card base.
I can’t wait to see what fun projects you all make this week! Be sure to head over to the MFT Card Challenge page to enter.
