Friday Sketchers Challenge #14!!

Yesterday I had a lovely day off from work and what do you think I did most of the day???? YEP! I stamped!!! I got some wonderful happy mail which included my Whiff of Joy stamps, all the way from Switzerland and it only took a week to get here!!! Can you believe that?? It takes 2-3 weeks just to get something from the US and we're on the same continent!! Anyhoo, the new stamps are lovely!!!

Today's Friday Sketchers Challenge comes to us from Bea in Germany!! So I whipped out the first stamp I wanted to play with which is Charlotte and her Cat and got busy!!

I pulled out the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' kit by Stampin' Up because I thought these colours were perfect for Charlotte. I used textured Real Red cardstock for the 6x6 card base and layered some Pretty in Pink designer series paper over top. Then I took a double sided piece of dp from the kit and cut a rectangle in it and snipped a little into each corner with my scissors. I carefully distressed the edges of the frame back with my thumbnail and bent it backwards. Now you can see the opposite side of the dp a little bit and it makes a nice frame for the picture of Charlotte!

I stamped the image on Wausau paper and coloured it in with coordinating Copic markers. I added the blue patterned strip and the red snowflake which are die cut stickers included with the SS kit. I layered a Heidi Swapp clear snowflake over the red one and attached it with a silver brad. Then I made the sentiment layer and used a silver label frame and added some pink taffeta ribbon to the sides and attached with silver brads.

I pulled out some matching dollar store buttons, threaded silver cord through them and attached them with glue dots. For finishing touches I added pink Stickles to Charlottes hat and muff and painted on some highlights with white acrylic paint! Isn't she just a doll???

You can currently preorder this stamp and all the other Whiff of Joy stamps and if you do so before Monday, there is FREE shipping!!! Yeehaw!!

Hop on over to the Friday Sketchers blog and check out all the other wonderful creations by the design team! Then be sure to join in the sketchy fun!!!

I'll be back later with some previews for another new CCDesigns stamp set!!! So come on back!!
