Tuesday Morning Sketches #479

Hello, everyone! Good Tuesday morning to you! We got to enjoy a little bit of snow yesterday. Enough to build a snowman in and then to enjoy from inside the warm house! It doesn't snow this early around here very often - kinda makes me wonder if it's going to be a snowy winter or if it's just getting it all out of the way now...

Tuesday Morning Sketches has a fun sketch posted today:

The big diamond shape on this sketch is not one that I would have thought to use, but it reminded me that I had a diamond die that I haven't used in ages, so I thought I'd see what I could make with it.

I pulled out an old Santa stamp (my favorite one) from Close To My Heart that fit pretty well inside the diamond shape and went to work. I colored the cute little Santa with my ShinHan markers and matted him on a piece of Christmas paper. I added a little sparkle to the white trim on his hat, coat, and gloves with some Wink of Stella. I embossed the background panel with my swiss dot embossing folder and I outlined it for a little more interest.

Another Christmas card all ready to be sent out in a few weeks.

Head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team. We would love to see your take on the sketch!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be back soon with another project to share with you!


  1. Such a great card! Love that style of Santa and the large diamond works so well to break up the white w/ it's red and black (doodled) edges!

  2. It's easy to see why this is one of your favorite Santa stamps, it's super cute and I love the sentiment. We too got snow yesterday here in Oklahoma. It was nice big snowflakes.

  3. Super cute card! I love the santa too and it fits the diamond shape perfectly!

  4. Great card. The little Santa image is so cute. You did a wonderful job with the sketch.

    Great card

  5. My oh my have you been busy!! Love your scrapbooking stuff too :) the tiny dot background and the plaid paper are perfect for your cute Santa!!

  6. Love that jolly Santa in the diamond shape, and the embossed background looks so pretty too!

  7. I am so glad you got to use some things from your stash that you haven't used in awhile. This sketch was a bit challenging but you rocked it.

  8. Super cute! Your doodling is such a great touch!
