Freshly Made Sketches #411

Clean Team Designer Kim Singdahlsen has given us a terrific sketch to work with this week! I originally saw the circle element as an ornament but when I went looking at my stamp options, the Lawn Fawn snowmen kept calling to me.

The LF Simply Celebrate Winter line of snowmen is stamped on a stitched rectangle panel and the larger LF Ready, Set, Snow snowman stamped on a stitched circle die. The two background panels are embossed with falling snow before being adhered together. A PTI Traveler's Journal: December Typed Words sentiment is curved to fit the circle before it is layered on an slightly larger aqua circle and popped up on the embossed panels.

CAS(E) This Sketch! #347

Although I am often a slow adopter to new tools on the market, I ordered the Taylored Expressions Masking Stencils the second I saw them. How has it taken so long for someone to come up with this staple? Well done, Laurie Willison!

CAS(E) This Sketch #347 is perfect for the square stencil.

I layered the small square stencil on a white panel and then layered the TE Wavy Stripe Stencil on top and blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over both.

After removing the wavy stencil, I lightly inked the center of the square adding a bit of color and soften the contrast between the stripes.

A couple velum SSS Alexis snowflake die cuts are layered and adhered in the center before being added to the panel. A frosty gem finishes the snowflake and the MFT Snow Globe sentiment is popped up last.

Freshly Made Sketches #410

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #410!

Clean Team Designer Linda Callahan created a fun sketch for us this week! I knew I wanted my sentiment to go in the main square and had plenty of Christmas options to choose from. This Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings fit perfectly in the MFT Stitched Square Scallop Frame so was heat embossed on a black panel before the frame was added.

The design is completed with a little Memory Box Pine Needle Twigs greenery and gemstone berries.
