Playing along with Freshly Made Sketches design #275. If you haven’t tried a design sketch challenge, you should give theirs a try, especially if you are new to stamping. Having a design idea takes away the frozen feeling that comes when you stare a piece of blank cardstock!
Here’s the challenge for this week:
And my interpretation of the sketch:
Inside the card, a second penguin joins the one who peeks out through the circle…
To make it easier for new stampers to copy this design, I punched out the penguins to show how I could place them in the right place without having to worry about STAMPING them in the right place.
The stamp set is Snow Place and the matching framelit is called Snow Friends. This set is not just for Christmas! Penguins are adorable all year long! Inside I used the sentiment from Mixed Drinks (keeping with the ‘time’ theme started on the front). My color palette is Pacific Point, Basic Black, and Whisper White. Pacific Point just seems to make the penguins pop!
The Layering Circles framelits are so well worth the investment. I love how I could make that thin ring to go on the outside of my cut circle.
