Merry Christmas–SSSC #296


Hi, and welcome to this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Another classic sketch from Karen that was so much fun to work with!


I’ve had this idea in my head for a while and finally got around to doing it. I started with a Stone Gray card stock base. Next is Sweet Tooth card stock stenciled with Snowfall Stencil and molding paste. Then I added a Black Licorice card stock strip, with the sentiment from Winter Wonderland stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I tied around some hemp baker’s twine and tied a bow for the “flower” element. For the circle element, I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and sponged a night sky with a lit skyline.


Then I added Skyline Border Die-namics, cut from Steel Gray card stock and a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock cut with Blueprint 1 Die-namics to mimic a snowy city street. The car is the taxi from London Mouse and London Mouse Die-namics and the tree is from Winter Wonderland and Winter Wonderland Die-namics, both cut from Ranger watercolor paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. I splattered on some thinned down Copic Opaque White for the snow and finished off with the upper right element: Black Licorice card stock cut with Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, stamped with Snowflake Flurry in Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped up on foam. What a fun card to make!! I love my little scene and hope you do, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!
