MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

Hello!  It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for another fun sketch challenge from MFT!  Here's a look at the sketch:

I'm just a bit rebellious today and flipped my sketch on its side so I could use this absolutely fun and adorable stamp from LLD Document It - Hello My Name Is.

The card base is Smooth White Card Stock and then I masked off a rectangular area so I could stamp the Woodgrain Background in Grout Gray Ink.  It creates a little faux layer.  I cut out a LLD Insert It - 3x4 Insert Die-namics and stamped the name tag in Red Hot Ink.  I crossed out the "MY" and replaced it with "Your" from More Essential Sentiments and then added a little row of stars in Lemon Drop Ink.  The little star trio is cut from the Stacking Stars Die-namics and I added a little Sweet Tooth Button to the mix.

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 204

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC204 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

This week's sketch features another long rectangle and I opted to switch out the rectangle for a layered frame look.

I cut out the Clearly Sentimental Label Die-namics in Smooth White Card Stock and then I chose a LJD Grand Greetings stamp to steal the show.  I layered that over a Vertical Frame Die-namics in Electric Red Card Stock.  For the skinny strips underneath, I used the Washi Tape Die-namics and stamped a few patterns from Washi Patterns and More Washi Patterns. The color combo is ColourQ Challenge #224.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more eye candy to show you today.  Please hop on over and see:

Good morning!  I finally feel like I've organized my craft space a little and I'm rediscovering all sorts of goodies; like this Party Banner Die-namics!  I love this Seize the Sketch #12 layout and wanted to make a card while the challenge is still fresh.  I started with a Primitive White Card Stock base and then stamped the Striped Backgrounds in Grout Gray Ink.  The Electric Red heart is part of the Hearts a Plenty Die-namics and I added a big Grout Gray Button with some hemp cord.  The sentiment is from More Essential Sentiments and I stamped it in Steel Grey Ink.
