SSSC46 Starry Snowman

Good Sunday Morning Peeps!!!

It is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!! Here is the sketch we are using this week:

Loved this sketch and you know I lovin' this super fun "Snow Buddies" stamp set from SU. It is a level 2 hostess set and I am thrilled I was able to get it. I love snowmen and find them all adorable and this one is no exception.

I started my card off by choosing my DS paper, which comes from the Holiday Lounge DS pack. The card stock I used is Taken with Teal, Shara Sand and of course whisper white.

I stamped the snowman with black staZon onto whisper white and then stamped it again onto some taken with teal scrap, so I could cut out his scarf. I used my white gel pen to color in his dots on the scarf. I stamped the hat separate and col red it in with black and teal markers. I then cut it out and glued it on his head, just slightly askew. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to add his arms and the string and the star he is holding. The other 2 stars where stamped onto scrap white and colored with my summer sun marker and cut out and mounted to the main image panel with a bit of a dimensional. I used my circle and inverted scallop circle nesties to cut the snowman image and mat.

I added a bit of stardust stickles to the stars and the ground under the snowman. I pierced around the edge of the teal DS paper layer and added 3 silver brads and the sentiment comes from the "Christmas Greetings" stamp set and was stamped with taken with teal, I should have used black.

I hope you have some time to play along with us this week. Come join in on the fun and create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen's blog and link your card using Mr. Linky so all of us can see your creation!
