MFT Stamps | Wednesday Sketch Challenge 549

July 7, 2021

Hello friends! It’s time for a brand new sketch challenge! Come have fun and play along for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher! One lucky winner will be chosen at random. I created two simple cards today for my take on this week’s sketch.

For my first card, I used the adorable “Sweetheart” Stamp Set illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller. For both of my cards today, all of my images were stamped onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored with Copic Markers, and cut out with their coordinating dies.

For my background, I layered a top-folding A2 card base with some light blue patterned paper from the Petite Gingham Paper Pad. I then followed the sketch and added some strips of both Sno Cone and Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock. I adhered them with some double-sided tape and then trimmed any excess using my paper trimmer. Next, I diecut a stitched white circle using the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment onto a strip of Black Licorice Card Stock and adhered my image with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for added dimension.

I created my second card in a similar fashion but this time, I used images from the TI Flutterby Friends Stamp Set. All products used can be found at the bottom of this post!

    Bluebirds are a favorite of mine…my neighbor has boxes along the perimeter of his acreage so we have an abundance of them. Always a great sign in the Spring. These guys are so adorable. Love that gingham behind them it highlights their color so well. RAM is such a great illustrator/designer!

      You are so sweet, Anne, thank you! I love Bluebirds too! Sadly, we don’t have many where I live. And I agree, Rachelle Anne Miller is a wonderful illustrator! 🤗💖
