You know it's been over two years since I did a weekend sketch set. They were one of my favorite stamping challenges...4 sketches and one stamp set. I loved the feeling of actually using my stamps and creating four cards with any set is an accomplishment! I would guess that 1/4 of the stamp sets I own have never seen ink, and half have only been used once. I keep thinking I shouldn't buy any more stamps until I have done a sketch set with all of them, but I doubt I could go 3 or 4 years without any new stamps!!
I needed a few more Christmas cards so I scouted out the sketches and decided to pull my colours from the Colour Throwdown Challenge. They are a perfect match to Memory Works "25 Days" designer papers which are so fun to work with...you don't even need stamps! But, alas, Unity designed a coordinating stamp set to go with them, so I had to pull the two together and here's what I came up with!
First up is Splitcoast Stampers Sketch #362. I can hardly believe it's #362! I used the sentiment from the Unity set and the little Christmas Wish List is one of the little squares in the Memory Works papers. So fun and easy to put cards together with their papers!
Next up was the Waltzing Mouse Sketch #77. I knew it would be posted on Friday, so it was perfect for my sketch set. It was nice and easy to work with and my card ended up something like this! No stamps on this one! I used the little images from the paper and coated them with Rock Candy Crackle Paint and tied some twine off with a button to finish!
My next sketch was another Friday sketch and a favorite of mine to "Fall to" when I am looking for a sketch, and that is the Clean and Simple Fall to Layout #170. My card doesn't seem as Clean and Simple as it should be, but I like it just fine! I picked up these flowers by Prima last year, and I thought they looked like Poinsettas, although they weren't from their Christmas line. The seemed to fit perfectly with the sketch and the papers!
And to finish, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #147. I loved this sketch and it was so easy to work with...probably the fasted card of the four! The bingo card is another from the Memory Works papers and I added some snowflake buttons and Bravo Burgundy ribbon!
How fun is that! I hope that I can find time to do these sketch sets in the New Year. I know I won't have much time from here on it, but I have a few projects that I never found time to blog, so I hope to have a few more posts before Christmas.
Hope you are having a wonderful day! See you soon!
