Sweet Sunday Snowflake


It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen Giron. You'll find this week's sketch, SSSC39, on Karen's Blog.

I must admit, when I sat down to make this card I was stumped. Not because the sketch is difficult, more because I wasn't feeling my Mojo. I looked through all my stamps (and that's a LOT of looking!) but nothing spoke to me...Hmmmmm...now what? I realized that I really didn't feel like doing any colouring, so I decided to make a simple card with a chipboard snowflake from my Christmas Key Ingredients. Of course, once I had the package of KI on my stamp table I ended up using all the elements to create my card; cardstock, patterned paper, ribbons, chipboard snowflake, along with a button from my Savannah pack. I love the Key Ingredients for pulling a project together without too much tought...just what I was looking for when I was making this card. wink!

I coloured my snowflake with a blue copic first then covered it with Waterfall Stickles and set it aside to dry. I ran some Prism Intense Pink through my Big Shot with the Circles Impressabilities template before adhering the patterned paper. I stitched around the edges for a little interest then added the green glimmer ribbon and stamped the sentiment from Wings of Joy. Once the button was tied to the snowflake I attached it to an oval of Prism Blush Red Dark to make it pop. That's it....simple, easy, and quick (aside from waiting for the Stickled to dry).

I can't wait to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have come up with using this fabulous sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
