WMS Saturday Sketch Challenge - WMSC24

Welcome dear stampers to this Saturday's Waltzingmouse Sketch!


I made a Christmas card today using some of the November Release WMS sets -
The frame stamp (that fits in the Labels 14 Nesties!) and the wreath are from Twas the Night Before Christmas and this wonderful vinatage font sentiment is from Compliments of the Season.
For my wreath, I first punched a 5/8" circle on a piece of card stock - then stamped the wreath around it - then punched out the wreath with a 1 1/4" circle - much easier than punching the wreath and then trying to fit that circle back into a smaller punch and get it centered (ask me how I came to know this?!!)
Check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch.

Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 11/25/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Sometimes Claire offers little random winner prizes too - you never know!

In case I don't see you before Thursday - have a wonderful Thanksgiving (all those living in the US) - we certainly all have a lot to be thankful for don't we?? Let's all make a list to remind ourselves and read it at dinner on Thursday.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season, Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Paper: white, vintage cream, scarlet jewell - PTI, Always Artichoke -SU, DP Basic Grey Wassail/Falling Snow
Ink: Ranger Distress: old paper, forest moss, aged mahogany, antique linen, snowflake embossing folder, Labels 8, Labels 14 & rectangle Nestabilities, wrinkled seam binding: www.prairiebirdboutique.etsy.com , foam dimensionals, 1 1/4" circle & 5/8" circle punches - SU, blending tool & nonstick craft mat - Ranger.

FAbulous! I love the little wreath dangling! Beautiful colours and papers!

Joanne Leddy said...

This is so pretty! I love the colors you've used. I too have discovered this fact ... stamp the image, insert in punch, turn it over and position the image in the "window". Amazing how simple it can be when we make it so hard!? (giggle) Happy Thanksgiving and I'm thankful that you share your talents with all of us!
