MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #441

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge! Here is what I came up with: 




Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked in the link-up tool at the bottom of this post. For this card, I used the Penguins in Paradise stamp set illustrated by Birdie Brown. The patterned paper (for the background squares as well as for the paper piecing) is from the Sweet Celebration paper pack. The squares were die cut using the Square STAX Die-namics. The tiny star was die cut from Wild Cherry cardstock using the Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics.

Here is the sketch #441 for this week’s challenge:

Whismy Stamps Collaboration | Cupid in Training

Hi everyone! I’m back with a new collaboration post for Whimsy stamps

For today’s spot, I decided to feature the super funny Cupid in Training stamp set. This is my card: 




I created a top-folded card base with white cardstock and sponged the front of the card with Distress ink using a cloud stencil. This makes the funny frog pop against the neutral background. I added clear shimmer to his wings for a shiny touch.
