FMS211- Drummer Boy

Wow, where did the week go??!!  Back to Wednesday and another new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  This week, our sketch hostess is the incredible Karren Johnson and I love what she gave us to work with this week!

I pulled out my Drummer Boy set from WPlus9 again and played with a different set of colors.  I tried to pare down the colors into gray and red to help keep this clean.  I used my Copic Markers to color the drummer boy and his little friend.  I was going to grab a sheep again but my oldest told me that the poor donkey needed some love.  Kind of cracked me up and who was I to argue?!  I used the coordinating dies to cut the boy and his friend.  Then I used my 2-1/2″ Circle Punch to pop out the partial circle from Thick Whisper White card stock.  I added Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper behind it (wish you could see it in person….so much prettier!).  I added some Silver Thread and used a sentiment from the same stamp set to finish the sketch.

I think that you will have such fun with this sketch!  So many ways to go with it!!  The team certainly used it creatively and I know you’ll be in awe, as always.

Back on Friday with a fun card using some coloring I did last week.  Until then, thanks for stopping in!!

I got some extra time to stamp yesterday and thought it would be fun to join in at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I love the angle of the sentiment in the sketch and was looking through my stamps to see what would work well.  I got this awesome set called Twenty Fifteen as a bonus when I made an order from WPlus9.  The sentiments are so fun and I just love the triangles.  I layered and stamped the triangles using Blackberry Bliss and Daffodil Delight ink and then stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  By happy accident, I found out that White Perfect Accents from SU can become clear by removing the backing….I love them as clear for this so that is what I did.  The panels were cut using the Stitched Rectangles Dies from Simon Says Stamps.

Drummer Boy

You know sometimes you see a stamp set that really speaks to you, that is how I felt when I saw this adorable little set from WPlus9 called Drummer Boy.  My boys, particularly my youngest, love the song Little Drummer Boy.  We tend to play it over and over and I don’t get tired of hearing them sing along.  Needless to say, I had to order this right away and my first drummer boy is created in the image of my youngest.  Don’t think for a minute that the oldest isn’t put out and asking for his version.  I’m working on it for sure.  I stamped the images onto SU Thick Whisper White paper using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Using my Copics, I colored the images.  Then I simply cut them out using the companion dies to the stamp.  I cut the the layers using the Stitched Rectangle die (SSS) and Border Builders die (Li’l Inkers).

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  Just a fun bonus, here is the card my little one made using the set.  He colored with my markers and added the images to a card base I had left from a card kit last year.  Yeah….I may have used his card for inspiration.  He said it was ok. *smile*  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you tomorrow for the latest from Freshly Made Sketches
