I am so happy to bring you the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I am the sketch hostess this week and I hope you enjoy playing with us this week. I actually used my sketch a couple of weeks ago to create swap cards for the Control Freaks swap.
When I got my new Holiday Catalog, one of the first sets that drew my eye was Merry Little Christmas. I just love the variation of fonts! It is designed to go with the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit but I wanted to show that it can be used on its own too. I paired it with another favorite, Season of Style Designer Series Paper Pack. The best part about these packs?? They come with 24 double sided sheets of each design. That means you can really use a good sized piece of DSP on a bunch of cards. Love that! I chose the candy striped piece and then used the polka dot scraps (back side of stripes) to create the little banner. Quite an efficient use of the paper, if I do say so myself! *smile* I stamped the words in Cherry Cobbler ink. Then I stamped again in Early Espresso, inking up only the “little” banner with a marker. I cut them out and put them up on a Glue Dot. An Early Espresso button tied with Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine finish it off. I LOVE how the stripes of the twine go with the DSP!!
The design team has come up with an amazing variety of takes on the sketch. I know you will love them all! Make sure you stop over to see their fantastic work!
Tomorrow starts the Artisan Design Team 2013’s blog hop! For 10 days, we will be showing you the projects we all submitted for the Artisan Award contest. I am really looking forward to this. We will all be sharing close-up pictures the details on our work. I hope you will join us!
Thanks for stopping in today! See you tomorrow!

Lovin’ your control freak swaps! You are one talented group of stampers! This is a wonderfully festive holiday card! Looking forward to the hop!
A very fun and festive card, Jennifer! This stamp was near the top of my list too. I love the tip on the dsp, and this sketch was a fun one.
Beautiful Christmas card. TFS
This is absolutely adorable. I have the paper but you’ve sold me on the stamp set. Cute, cute, cute!
Like the look of this holiday card! Mixing stripes and polka dots in traditional Christmas colors looks terrific. Nice two-color sentiment, too. 🙂
Love your card! The paper was already on the short list and now I am going to have to get the stamp! This could be my family Christmas card. Thanks for the Idea. It was fun catching up at the airport on our way to convention and being lucky enough to sit together on the flight home.
Great Christmas card Jennifer! That is a fun sentiment! Thanks for such a great sketch this week – I had a lot of fun creating with it!
Loving this card Jennifer! Those papers are gorgeous and that sentiment is fabulous!
LOVE this card! Fabulous clean! Love the choice of papers and colors. Definitely going in my CASE file! This was a fabulous sketch, too, and I know I’ll be using it a lot.
