Hello sweet blog buddies!
I had a very small time in my craft room just to play, so I whipped up a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge. This weeks 'Mojo Starter' is a sketch by WMS Mischief Maker Iwona Palamountain. I was so inspired by the lovely Jeanne's card and still on high from being a Top Mouse last week, I had to give it a go!! :))
I had SO MUCH fun with this sketch and kind of went with the 'flow'. Here is my effort...
I began by stamping a custom background using a star image from a 'secret' set in blue and two sizes of sweeties in aqua and red to form a lovely Christmas pattern. I used my newly received Candy Jar Christmas and Candy Jar Fillers stamp sets to create the sweetie jar full of peppermint cream candy (recipe courtesy of Mrs Claus!! LOL!). The sweetie jar label has some added stardust stickles for lots of Christmas sparkle!
I had some of my stamped background paper left over, so I die cut a label using Spellbinders Labels 4 and then added a small red dotty border from 'Very Vintage Labels 4' and stamped one of the cute sentiment from Candy Jar Christmas stamp set in the centre.
The embellishment at the top left I made myself by stamping two star images from 'the Secret Set' in red and then scoring, folding to create a 3D embellie :) I simply die cut a little shape from Spellbinders Persian Accents set and finished with a snow white button and aqua/peppermint bakers twine.
I used some gorgeous sheer white ruffle edge ribbon and more aqua bakers twine from The Ribbon Reel to create a border along the bottom of the card. The red mesh behind the jar I picked up at a little outing to The Stamp Attic along with the tag die which I have embossed using Sizzix Snowflakes folder.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog today and will find the time to play along with this great sketch challenge too!
I'm also entering into the following challenges:
