Sweet Sunday Enjoy

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC178. I always love Karen's sketches but this one in particular made me smile because of the clean layout.

I flipped the sketch upside down and used Pure Innocence Thanks Snow Much from My Favorite Things. This is card #4 for Project Christmas 2013.


I started with a card base of Sweet Tooth then added a layer of Sno Cone. I layered a rectangle panel of X-Press It Blending Card on top of the Sno Cone then stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black. The top layer is more Sweet Tooth and I used my Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the circle to 'frame' my snowman, then I used the swiss dots embossing folder to create the 'snow'. I adhered the top layer with foam tape for some dimension.

I coloured the image with copic markers. I love the way he's leaning back, smiling up at the falling snow and the sentiment strip.

Speaking of the sentiment strip, I used the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics to cut out the Sno Cone flag then I stamped the sentiment using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I used the Let it Snowflake Die-namics to cut out the Sweet Tooth snowflake and I topped it with a silver sequin for some sparkle.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Pure Innocence Thanks Snow Much. I also stamped some light blue snowflakes (the stamp is also from the set) using Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Genius girl! Love that you switched it up. Placing the sentiment above the snowman is perfect. Did you notice I channeled you for my card with the *dots*. :) {{hugs}}
