Just Add Ink #339

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week I designed the sketch and as usual, I stumbled when it came time to sit down and put something together…..  Don’t know why I don’t design a card without the pressure of a sketch and then take the sketch from that! Does that make sense???

I wanted to use Stampin’ Up!s Father Christmas – a set that hadn’t seen ink until this card. Do you ever really want to use a set and then when it comes time, you don’t know how to use it? That was me with this card.  The background trees and sentiment are from a set called Christmas Magic.  Here’s what I came up with:

I am about halfway through my Christmas cards, so I’m pretty much using any sketch I get to add to my Christmas card stash!  For my card, I’ve cut the various leaves and pinecones from Stampin’ Up!s  Pretty Pines Thinlits in two colour greens (can you pleuralise green? I have!) – Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow. I then added a third green in the way of a crimped Mint Macaron strip.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Christmas Magic and I have embossed this in white embossing powder.

Freshly Made Sketches #258

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for our newest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch designer is the super talented Rita Wright – here’s her great sketch:

I’ve had Stampin’ Up!s Christmas Magic sitting on my desk unopened for a few weeks.  I thought this weeks sketch was perfect for the train to get inked up and lightly watercoloured. While I was at it, I also watercoloured the candy cane sign post.  Pretty proud of myself that I’ve now started making my Christmas cards.  How are you going with yours?

Here’s what I came up with:
