Thanksgiving is over, and I’m on track this week to posting some card challenges. The first one of the week is Freshly Made Sketches #264.

I have the perfect stamp to make a super cute and simple card. It is Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) ATS (Artist Trading Stamp) Frosty Fun and its coordinating die.  I stamped Frosty in FSJ Black Licorice ink onto Whipped Cream cardstock. I colored him with FSJ Color Burst pencils. Once I finished coloring him, I cut him out with his coordinating die. The circle is cut out with the FSJ pierced Circle Dies using FSJ cardstocks Pool Play and Whipped Cream. Frosty is attached using FSJ Foam Squares (medium). I accented the background with FSJ Silver Splash and added a sentiment in FSJ Candy Apple ink using the word “Joy” from the Holiday Script stamp set. Here is the main attraction:

 

All supplies used are from Fun Stampers Journey. If you would like to create this card for yourself, please feel free to check-out my FSJ website to place an on-line order (click here).

In about a week and a half, it will be my annual Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. I have two card designs ready to go, and I’m waiting on my Fun Stamper Journey order to make my third design, which will feature an angel heralding the birth of Christ. I really enjoy Freshly Made Sketches card challenges. Their sketch this week is #261:

I am uploading my second design, which is a snowman card. Every year I have to have a snowman card featured in my stamp-a-stack event. This year I chose to use Fun Stampers Journey Frosty Fun and its coordinating die. I stamped Frosty Fun on FSJ Whipped Cream cardstock and colored him with FSJ Color Burst Pencils. I accented the berries and his nose with FSJ Glaze.  The snowman is adhered using FSJ foam squares to pop him up. I used Pink and Main rounded stitched rectangle dies for all the mats. The base mat is FSJ Candy Apple cardstock, the next mat (diagonal stripes) is SU! Fresh Prints DSP as well as the patterned paper belly band, and the snowman mat is SU! Marina Mist and FSJ Whipped Cream cardstocks. The top edge of the snow was cut using a die I got last year from Poppy Stamps (I can’t remember the name – sorry). I stamped the snowflakes from SU! Happy Scenes onto the Marina Mist with SU! Whisper White craft ink, and I stamped the sentiment from the same SU! stamp set in FSJ Candy Apple ink.

I try to make my stamp-a-stack cards fairly simple since my stampers will be making 15 cards at this event. I think this card is just adorable.
