December Sketch For You To Try

Well, this is it. This is the last sketch from Jen's Sketch For You To Try for this year. I have to say that SFYTT is some of the funnest (yes, it's a word) stamping I do every month and I look forward to sample-ing it up for ya'll again next year! We've had some of THE BEST and most generous stamp companies sponsoring us this year. Check 'em out:

The Cat’s Pajamas
Verve Stamps
Your Next Stamp
Skipping Stones Design
Waltzing Mouse Stamps
Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps
My Favorite Things
Anita Be Stampin’
Stamping Bella
Unity Stamp Co.
Amber Ink


Ok, here's December's Sketch:

This month, the SFYTT team is using the sketch along with stamps from one of our sponsors from this year. I chose to work with VERVE. I used a few stamps here: Fluttering By (Stamp set of the month and 40% off right now), Making a Statement for the sentiments and Wishful Elegance for the Jotted Heart pattern. Have ya'll ever tried Verve Stamps? NOW is the perfect time to do so--you'll love them! BTW, select Plain Janes are 30% off too!

Here's a closer look at my card--I love all the layers!:

SO, who's done every SFYTT sketch, every month for the entire year? OMG, ya'll aren't going to believe the prize package for a random participant who has--Gift Certificates, stamps (of course) and a year's subscription to the SCS Fan Club. Head on over to Jen's blog HERE to make sure you get the scoop on how to enter. She'll be drawing a name on Christmas Day!

As for this month's sketch, my SFYTT sisters have a bit more inspiration for ya'll. Ok, A LOT more inspiration--they are all very talented!:

  1. Bold and so striking Susan! Love the stamping on the Jotted Heart, the combination of sentiments, and the shadow stamping! So much to look at!

  2. Great job with the sketch. Love all the different elements especially the butterfly and the bright colors too.

  3. This is DARLING! I love the yellow background on the sentiment and all the little Verve details! Super cute card!

  4. Oh I LOVE this!! Love it. I'm a sucker for well-done layers and you pulled it off perfectly! Just the right amount of added "stuff" without looking messy. AWESOME.
