It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC47. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.
As I type this we're smack dab in the middle of the first winter storm of the season. There are already a few inches of wet snow accumulated on the ground, and it has completely covered the trees...they look SO pretty!!! So I think this card is absolutely perfect for our first winter storm. Not to mention, my willpower finally ran out and I recently ordered a few of the adorable snowmen from Whipper Snapper. I've been wanting them for so long...I had a wee bit too much free surfing time on our recent vacation to Vermont, and these guys magically appeared in my mailbox this week! grin! :)
I stamped Just Chill'n Snowman with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured it with copics. I turned him into a Snowgirl though with the pink hat! I paper pieced the bucket with one of the patterns from my Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad. Then I added the red heart and gave it two coats with my clear Glaze pen for some shine. I finished the image with some white liquid applique and sprinkled on some glitter before I heated it. I tried to get a close-up of the shimmery glitter because it's quite pretty IRL. Photos never really do a card justice IMO.
Snowgirl is layered onto Prism Blush Red Dark. Then I stitched the same patterned paper to some Baja Breeze before layering it onto the Prism Frosted Pink. The ribbon is Baja Breeze and if you look real close you'll see the ghost snowflake I tied to the bow with a button.
I think that with all the snow that's falling, I'll be Just Chill'n on Sunday...I feel a Lulu and hoody day coming on...perfect for stamping, or addressing all my Christmas cards...ugh! You already know I got them done early this year, but that doesn't mean they'll be mailed early (or even on time)! LOL!!!
Let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch.
