I'm so sorry I've been a bad blogger this week. 2 appointments snuck up on me which led to much less crafting time than I planned. I am very excited that I actually managed to play along with 2Sketches4U this week though. You know me and sketches, but Laura's sketch 40 worked out so well with the new stamps I got from Whiff of Joy that I just HAD to play long. My dear friend Barb (an AMAZING stamper and fabulously sweet woman, check out her blog HERE) introduced me to these adorable images from Whiff of Joy's newest artist N. Fickel. This stamp is called Wee and drum. Too cute, huh, especially with the kitty! Anyway, I used my Copics to color (sorry, I don't stamp enough to remember to take pics of what colors I used) and also took the opportunity to break out my new MS crown around the corner punches. Wee is cut out using my Nesties Deckle Rectangles and I added some Rain Dot snowflakes for some subtle texture. there's also a bit of flower Soft on Wee's collar and adhesive beads on the drum sticks.
I so wanted to do a pink and green card so in the end I used papers from Nana's Nursery Baby Girl stack and made it Christmassy by adding a leftover snowflake from another project that was hanging around the table. The sentiment ring is from the Cutting Cafe's Christmas Circles Set 2 printable stamp set. Because they are resizeable I was able to print it out really small so it would fit on my snowflake and use my Nesties to cut the ring that resembles the sketch. WooHoo!
