Holiday Stockings - SSS184

It's time for another fun Sweet Stop Sketch.


This is a clean and simple sketch that leaves room for a lot of creativity and a variety of card styles. You can use the sketch literally and just add four circle stamped images or you can get creative and replace the circles with some fun cut out stamped images like I did.


I chose to use Christmas stockings in place of the four circles and finally had a chance to use my little clothespins. I used the Mosaic Cuttlebug embossing folder on the red card stock and sponged with some red ink for dimension to mimic a brick fireplace.


Now it is your turn to play along with us. I can't wait to see what you make with the sketch this week. You can get all the details about The Sweet Stop Sketch challenge over at The Sweet Stop blog and see what the other Sugar Babies made with this fun sketch.

Stamps: Holiday Baubles
Paper: Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, Ruby Red, & White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, & Ruby Red
Other: mini clothespins, green polka dot ribbon, red and white twine, and Mosaic embossing folder

Love, love, love! The embossing looks like bricks on the chimney, but you intended that. X
