Christmas Mittens for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We have glorious sunshine here and are spending the weekend at Great Wolf Lodge for an end-of-summer family getaway.

Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps. This sketch was designed by yours truly, so I really hope you'll play along with us! Here is the sketch:

...and here is my take on it:

I used LOTS of new products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue on this project! I used the new Winter Wonder TIEF to create the semi-circle element in the sketch. It doesn't show in this photo, but I brushed clear Wink of Stella over the raised image so it sparkles like freshly fallen snow.

The DSP I used is from the Be Merry pack, which is in the Annual Catalogue. I think it is my favourite red-and-green-all-round-Christmas paper this year. I used the Ticket Tear punch along one edge of the Cherry Cobbler card stock layer behind the DSP for a little added interest. The mittens are from the new Smitten Mittens stamp set and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. I used the coordinating Many Mittens framelits to die-cut them out. I added a little pine bough behind the mittens which I die-cut from Garden Green card stock using the new Christmas Staircase Thinlits.

The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and is stamped in Garden Green ink. I used the Pretty Label punch to punch it out and then layered it on an Everyday Label punch-out in Cherry Cobbler. I love the way those two punches work together! The only embellishment on this card is some twine from last year's Holiday Catalogue. I used both Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green because I couldn't decide which colour I liked better ;)

On the inside I added a Whisper White card stock panel on which I stamped the sentiment from the Smitten Mittens stamp set in Garden Green and another pair of mittens in Cherry Cobbler. Super-cute!

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's take on my sketch and then play along with me! I would love to see what you create and will be sure to comment on every submission for this challenge. Have a great week!
