Sketch- Holiday Madness and a Little Bling

It's time for Thursday's sketch on Sketches! {by Tamara}  Below is the sketch.

I had fun making this card as it is colorful and non-traditional to the holidays.  I mixed and match different elements- The bg dp is fun Imaginisce which you can find at Paper Addiction. It has some glitter accents which makes for fun holiday paper.  The strips are from some K&Co dp which was a collage of holiday strips and worked out well for this sketch to cut out and use.  The "medallion" is a rub on I have had since last Christmas and I used it on some scrap paper and cut it out.  I then covered it in some clear ep for shine and sturdiness.   I punched out a scalloped circle for the sentiment and used some forgotten fringe ribbon for the final touch.

Materials used: Imaginisce dp, K&Co dp, Blue bayou, VV, fringe ribbon, Daisy D rub ons, Fancy Flexible Phrases, scallop punch, white gel pen, diamensionals

I mentioned some bling... I still keep busy "beadn" so I made a project that a friend requested.  She wanted a necklace that is a hot trend at the moment of stamped metal of your child's inital (or hubby, boyfriend, etc.) with a birthstone color.  Here, I stamped on sterling silver discs and oxidized the letters;  I punched a hole and added a jumpring.  The birthstones are Swarovski crystals wrapped in sterling silver wire and all were placed on a popcorn style sterling silver necklace.  This is such a fun project-stamping on metal!  I will be using more hopefully on some cards soon!  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!!


  1. Deb great card, I like all the fibers. Cool necklace, I like the jewels with the initials.

  2. Wonderful soft colors on this card - love the fibers too - and what a great design on this initial necklace!

  3. The card is lovely! Love the medallion.The eyelash fiber adds just the right festive touch!
    I absolutely adore that necklace! Where did you get the letter disks? I would love to make one for myself. One of the reasons I love your blog is that my two passions just happen to be stamping and beading ,too! Thank for sharing the awesome inspiration!
