Santa with Atlantic Hearts

Happy Monday!!!  We received our first snowfall yesterday - - enough to skiff the ground anyway.  It's that time of year when the weather changes, the pace of life picks up and we're all anticipating someone's arrival......

Little Saint Nick is the stamp set I wanted to ink up for this week's sketch.  He is so adorable and fun to colour up. 

It's hard to see in the photo but I also used some fun flock to add texture to his hat!!!

The white daisy background is stamped in mink ink using a retired stamp set - I wanted to add some visual interest to the blank slate.

Merry Christmas is stamped in charcoal ink using the Noel stamp set. 

Ruby cardstock and basic fundamental paper form the base of the card.  Lastly, a few sparkles glitter the card up!!!

I hope you'll join us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  Simply add your project by clicking on the link.

Beary Christmas with Atlantic Hearts

It's time for another sketch at Atlantic Hearts Challenge and the sketch was so good I followed it exactly, right down to the diagonal paper.

I used the diagonal patterned paper from the designed Christmas collection - Beary Christmas in a non-holiday themed card. 

The sketch shows a row of flowers - so I pulled out some white paper flowers and layered them with red enamel gems.  The leaves are stamped in fern ink and fussy cut, layering them in among the flowers.

A simple sentiment in the lower right corner finishes off this clean and simply card.

So, have another look at your papers, and think outside the designated theme. Join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and link up your project by clicking  here.
