PP592 Merry Sketch

Hello stampers, happy Sunday!  It's Paper Players time and I am the hostess this week with a sketch for you:

It was SO hot yesterday here in PA, I decided to make a Christmas card to cool off!  Here we go:

I got these ornament stamps and dies at the end of the Christmas season so I hadn't really had a chance to play with them!  I stamped them on Shimmery White cardstock in Stazon ink, then watercolored them in shades of Evening Evergreen, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake.  I chose some matching DSPs from last year's catalog, Tidings of Christmas:

I mixed my metallics...I hope that's not a big faux pas...using silver cord and gold pearls, then added a stacked diecut "merry" at the bottom, popped up on little slivers of dimensionals!  I also added a diecut scalloped border:

There are so many ways this sketch can be interpreted!  I hope you'll find some inspiration and play along, it would mean a lot to me!  You can see what all the design team created over at the Paper Players blog...check it out, then be sure to share yours too!  Thanks for visiting today...enjoy it and be blessed!

I see nothing wrong with 'mixing metals' especially because these are so pretty! Loving the colors, papers, and darling ornaments - looking forward to seeing them more for Christmas 2022!

Not a thing wrong with mixing gold and silver metallics, LeAnne! Love these ornaments and this is a perfect way to use this sketch!

Oh my gosh...what a lovely holiday card, LeAnne! I like mixed metals ... I think they add interest. The layered Merry is perfect. I LOVED your sketch, and can't wait to use it again. Have a wonderful week!

What a perfect take on your sketch LeAnne - these ornaments and festive colours are just great! You are doing so well with your Christmas card preparation - putting me to shame lol!

Claire Broadwater said...

WOW! What a fabulous sketch and this Christmas card is just perfect! I love the beautiful ornaments and the fun designs on each one! I am so very sorry for your loss. I know your hearts are breaking! Lots of prayers and warm hugs for you and your family!

Kim S said...

What a wonderful combination of those classic ornaments and traditional colors. I LOVE the mix of patterns!

Christy Lynn said...

This was a super fun sketch LeAnne, I loved it! Great Christmas card here, your watercolored ornaments look great. I discovered my StazOn pad is bone-dry and I haven't found the ink refills in stock anywhere. Also I think mixed metallics was super trendy a couple years ago ;)

This is such a lovely Christmas card, LeAnne. Such pretty details on the beautiful ornaments, and Shimmery White paper adds such pretty lustre. It's one of my favorites for holiday cards. Your stacked letters with the white shadow look great too!
It's always time to make a card for Christmas or listen to Christmas music in my book. Hope, Light, and Peace are needed every day! Praying for your family.

Anne Marie Hile said...

Such a fun sketch, LeAnne! Love that you made a Christmas card, too. You have totally inspired me, as always!

Jaydee said...

LeAnne, I love the way you arranged the Merry to look as though snow was nestled on top! I love your three ornaments, to. Such a cool sketch and you showcased it to perfection!

Still sending thoughts, prayers and hugs to you all.
