TST #97

Where does the time go.  This is such a hectic time of year and that awful four letter word "work" just seems to get in the way of having fun making and creating cards.  However it's time once again for Try Stampin on Tuesday.  This week I think that the sketch could be used in a lot of different ways.  You could make a buckle card or even a card that looks like a cluch purse, but I chose to keep with the Christmas Theme in the cards for December and went with my "Flaky Friends".
I thought I would change the sketch up a little and instead of using two different background pieces I would continue with having the whole background one piece.  Then I added the little flakes to the background piece from my Flaky Friends stamp set.  I purchased this set over the summer for $5 and love it.  
Once again I used the SU Blossom Punch to set up the sentiment.  This is a rather simple version of the sketch, but I think that it works.  Now if you need a little more inspiration hop on over to the Try Stampin website and see what the other great Designers have in store for you.  Don't forget to post your recreation of the sketch for all of us to admire!

Thanks for stopping by.


Your comments mean a lot, so please remember to leave one.


  1. Great use of the sketch Nancy. It's a great simple card and would easily work for mass production. Love your colours and the tiny snowflake :)

  2. Gorgeous card! I love that you rotated the sketch. I love your colours. In fact, I just love your card.

  3. Well, Nancy, I guess this card means me?! ;) LOVE it--the sentiment is hilarious and I adore the monochrome feel! SO happy to be back! Merry Christmas! :)

  4. Nancy this is such a great card. I had a "Doh" moment when I saw this. I love how you turned the sketch. What a great card to mass produce but so very pretty

  5. Great take on the sketch, rotating it makes it look so much different. Love the monochromatic pink and that silly sentiment.
