Hey there! The December Creative Crew Gallery on Splitcoaststampers opens today! I'm really excited about the projects I'm sharing, so I'm showing you the first of them today!
I used Starlight Thinlet Dies to create the snowflakes and Nature Sings from the Annual Catalog for the stamped images to create my card for the Sketch Challenge:
Here's the sketch:
Following the sketch challenge, I cut strips 1 1/8" wide and varying lengths from Soft Sky, Marina Mist, and Whisper White card stock. After adhering to the Basic Black 4" x 5 1/4" layer, I embossed it all with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with Starlight Thinlet Dies, then layered together or just adhered singly to the card front with glue dots. I centered each with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel.
I stamped the Nature Sings greeting with Dapper Denim ink on Whisper White, then cut out with a Bunch of Banners Framelit. I cut off the right side so it would fit in the space allotted for the greeting. Before I adhered with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals I rolled the edges of the banner directly on the Dapper Denim ink pad for a "faux layer" look. A couple of Rhinestones finish the banner off nicely.
Inside I stamped another Nature Sings sentiment with Dapper Denim ink.
After stamping the little group of trees from Nature Sings in Dapper Denim ink I dabbed and doodled with my Fine Tip Glue Pen, the sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. I left the card open for awhile to let the glue/glitter dry.
I stamped the envelope with the same trees and another Nature Sings sentiment. I love this card!
Here's the sketch again so you can play along:
