Welcome to WWC97 – Penny’s sketch challenge for this week!


I think Penny chose a great sketch; and remember, you can change up the focal shape, or flip the design on it’s head or side, if that suits your idea better.  I stayed with the sketch this time 🙂

WWC97 Jar of Cheer

I used the little snowman image from the Jar of Cheer stamp set; I was going to change the focal shape to use the jar in the stamp set, but then decided to keep it clean and simple (that doesn’t happen often for me!) 🙂

Once I decided to use this pattern from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper, I pulled my colours from it, and went to work.

I stamped the snowman in Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky to colour the snowman.  I then used the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies – Circles to die cut the snowman, and one size up in Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

I created a card base from Cherry Cobbler cardstock, then layered a panel of Whisper White on top of that.  On the Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I then added the panel of Presents & Pinecones DSP, then added a strip of Emerald Envy cardstock.  On top of that, the layered snowman was added.

This card came together nice and easy; it would be a good one for making multiples!  I hope you like it, too.

Please head over to the Watercooler Wednesday blog page, take a look at the cards created by the rest of the design team – then link up your own card for the challenge!

Thanks for spending some time with me today!  If you don’t already have a demonstrator in Canada, and would like to  purchase the supplies to make this card, just click on the images below, and you’ll be taken to my online store. And remember – there’s still time to shop the YearEnd Closeout sale!

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

  1. Wow, I love that little snowman from Jar of Cheer Deb. He’s so cute and just perfect for your take on the sketch challenge this week. I love the striped paper background and those stitched circle dies that really layered up the snowman so beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
