Sweet Stop Sketch #36 - Kisses from Heaven

We don't have any snow here in Texas, so I wanted to make a snowy card for this Sweet Stop sketch. I cut out the snowflakes using a Spellbinders die, and while the cardstock was still inside each die, I sponged some pale blue ink into each opening. The snowflakes were then covered with some Picket Fence Distress Stickles and set aside to dry. These stickles are becoming my go-to bottle when I want a subtle frosty effect instead of all-out glitter. LOVE my Picket Fence distress stickles!

I thought about looking for a "let it snow" sentiment, but I love this one more. It says "kisses from heaven" and it's from Sweet N Sassy's Snowflakes set. Isn't that the sweetest sentiment?

Play along and create something with this sketch today. It's a quick and easy sketch this time, I promise. :-) For more inspiration, check out with the other Sugar Babies created over on the Sweet Stop Sketches blog.

Stamps: Snowflakes (Sweet N Sassy Stamps)
Ink: Aqua Mist (PTI)
CS: Kraft (SU), Close to Cocoa (SU), Vanilla (SU), Aqua Mist (PTI), October Afternoon designer paper
Other: sponge, Spellbinders Snowflakes dies, circles Nestabilities, buttons (SU, Rusty Pickle, and PTI), Picket Fence distress stickles

What a beautiful snowflake card, Holly! And hey! There's still some snow up here .. just a wee bit North ... and (sigh) more to come on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Happy New Year, sweet friend!
