Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello


Time for a Sketch Challenge

I love a good sketch challenge. This one from Freshly Made Sketches looked simple but was a little more challenging than I expected.

I started with a stitched circle but it seemed too plain so I add a circle underneath that looks like a wreath to me, and it seemed perfect with the birds I wanted to use.

I stamped the bird with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored it with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol ink markers.

If you want to see what other crafters created with this sketch check out Freshly Made Sketches.

Here are some of my favorites

For my pre-order, I only ordered 3 of my favorites because with the Christmas season in full swing I knew I would have very little time for crafting until after Christmas Day. 

My first favorite is the Daffodil Day Dream bundle because Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers and this stamp set has a large set of dies so you can paper piece a set of daffodils. I also got the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series paper pack for FREE as part of the SALE-A-Bration deals.

My next favorite is the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle. I love the boots, watering can, and flower pots in this set.

My third favorite is the Seas the Day Bundle. I love the large die that cuts the frame and bubbles out. I think this will pair beautifully with the Seascape set from the annual catalog. I plan to combine the 2 sets to make a diorama car using the diorama dies. 

Once you look over the new catalog and SALE-A-Bration brochure please share your favorite in the comments. I love hearing from you!
