My Sunday Stamps Swan Song

Happy Sunday! Can you believe one week from today is Christmas Eve?? Where has the time gone?

It's hard to believe that I have been part of the Sunday Stamps Design Team for two and a half years already! When I first signed on it was supposed to be for just one year, but that has quickly turned into much more. I have truly loved being part of the Design Team and being stretched and inspired with each new challenge; however, like all good things, this too must come to an end. Life is just too crazy right now and I find myself with too much to do and not enough time in which to do it. I am missing out on the important things like time with my family and I need to make changes. One of those changes is resigning from the Design Team. As difficult as it is, I know it is the right decision for me right now. The door has been left open for a return if and when things settle down for me and I am truly grateful for that. In the meantime, I will continue to create and share what I love!

Now for this week's Sunday Stamps sketch challenge:

Here is my last project for the Design Team...

I think the Year of Cheer Suite has been my most-used selection of products from this year's Holiday Catalogue. I just can't seem to get enough of those beautiful mixed-metallic patterns! When I saw Teresa's sketch I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. (I think I may be addicted to those foil snowflakes!)

I used two different patterns from the Year of Cheer specialty DSP pack...I just love the way they all work together. My focal image features the large snowflake and the swirly circle images from the Cheers to the Year stamp set. I heat embossed the former in silver and the latter in gold.

I used the 2" circle punch to punch out the embossed images and then layered them on a silver foil 2-1/4" circle before mounting them in the centre of the gold foil snowflake. The sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set and is heat embossed in gold. The only embellishments on this card are some gold and silver sequins.

On the inside I added a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White panel on which I stamped the large snowflake image again using Soft Suede ink and another sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Smokey Slate ink. The card is built on a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Smokey Slate card stock base.

I hope you'll give this challenge a go. I am making it my mission to visit and comment on every single entry on this final challenge, so show me what you've got! Have a super Sunday!
