Saturday Sketch Challenge 265, holiday mini sneak peek

Good Evening Friends!

It's time for another sketch challenge from your stamping 411 operators!  This week I am off to convention, by the time you are reading this it'll be almost time for me to come home.  I'm sure I'll have lots of stories to share. 

I did some SERIOUS damage in the holiday mini catalog.  Every page is packed with products I want (and now have)  teehee!  Here's a bit of what I got so far. 

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes
Ink: Stazon white (stamped on a window sheet)
Paper: white and cobbler, plus the new sandable cobbler paper.
Accessories: Lacy brocade embossing folder and NEW sanding block. 

base layer: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 5 1/4" x 4
Layer 3: 5 1/4 x 1 1/2"
Layer 4: 2 1/2" circle punch.  I used a circle die for the acetate. It doesn't punch very well and the big shot cuts it like buttah!  :)
Here's how it looks under the hood.  :)

Have a great week!

What a gorgeous Christmas the ornament stamped in white on the acetate, and the tulip border sets it all off.
