Today I've got a fun little double whammy for you, I've got a Sweet Sunday sketch sample for you, and I've combined it with a preview of two new stamp sets coming to My Favorite Things this coming Wednesday! Get ready to meet "Emma Blowing Kisses" and "Wyatt Says Wow!"
Well, as I created it, I thought I was doing the sketch correctly, but I goofed. That green panel should have extended all the way to the edge. But as you can see, truly I'd sewn it all in place.
For a bit of something different, I stamped sweet little Emma to a piece of grid paper, then paper pieced her little dress.
And instead of my normal matchy-match thing, I went hunting through my paper stash bins, and pulled all sorts of different cheery bits of things....
This little sweetie has a so many cute sentiments included. I kept the sort of clean and simple look going by tucking in a little "love you" and added a little button to hold the trim in place.
Because I felt badly about botching the sketch, and because I had a birthday card to make, and since I also had another CUTE stamp ready to preview on my desktop I gave it another whirl, this time with the new Wyatt stamp that will also be released on Wednesday.
I had to make a card for my son's bestie's birthday this coming weekend. Wyatt's shirt was stamped onto a scrap of Crate Paper patterned paper that I had on my desktop and the other two patterned papers are My Minds Eye Quite Contrary. I stamped the pants to a scrap of Kraft paper and then colored with an E31 marker for a bit of extra detail.
Since I'd stamped Wyatt to white paper, and then used a ivory card base (whoops...didn't plan ahead...) I sponged all of the edges with some distress ink to make the white not so jarring.
Won't my husband be so pleased when I'm not dashing down to make a card 15 minutes before the party (as per usual?)
Both of these stamp sets are new releases from My Favorite Things that will be released this coming Wednesday night! I so hope you've been reading along on MFT's blog each day to see all the designers that are previewing new sets each day!
