The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper is sooo much fun. It just makes you feel like a child again with the cute and colourful houses. I chose it for this card sketch challenge in Martin’s Mayhem #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I think this year I’m going to be well ahead of my cardmaking for Christmas … I hope!

Card sketches are a lot of fun to work with and I did switch this around a bit, putting the sentiment to the left. Sketches are there to give you a starting point and you can even flip them to give you a totally different look.

I watercoloured a label from Hippo & Friends dies in Balmy Blue using a water painter. Then I stamped the stars in Balmy Blue while the cardstock was still a bit damp so it gave it a less defined edge.

I fussy cut several houses from the DSP sheets. The trees from the Coming Home stamp set were stamped in Gray Granite, then using the plaid tree from Perfectly Plaid stamp set I stamped over the image to create the pattern.

This whole scene just has the look of a cute, fairytale like, Christmas village. I’m sure you have seen me use the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper several times. With it’s fun colours and images, I have really enjoyed creating both Christmas and non-Christmas projects with it.
