Just Add Ink #533

Hey Everyone

There’s a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week our challenge for you is to:

The card I’m sharing has been created with a stamp set starting with the letter S – it’s called Snow Wonder. This set has wonderful vintage-y artwork that I adore. The snowman I’ve used as a focal point on my card has been given some colour with my Smoky Slate and Highland Heather Blends. The trees that I’ve added behind him are also from the Snow Wonder Stamp Set. These trees have been stamped on Whisper White Cardstock with Garden Green Ink. The sentiment that I have used is also from the Snow Wonder Stamp Set – this sentiment has been stamped in Black Memento Ink.

The Whisper White Cardstock in the background has been coloured with my Light Soft Sea Foam Blend to create a waterwashed effect. This has been layered over a piece of DSP from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.

I added a Crumb Cake diecut and a special delivery image that I had lying on my desk. The image is from the Posted For You Stamp Set and the diecut is cut with my Snow Time Dies.

To finish off my card, I added three Metallic Pearls and some Gold Twine.

The thing I love about these challenges, is seeing how everyone’s take on these challenges, is so very different. To see what the team have created, pop over to Just Add Ink and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #462

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch has been designed by me! I took inspiration for my sketch from the stickies icon on my computer.

I’m continuing to create Christmas cards as I don’t know how many more I need to make and also because I am loving the festive sets I have and want to get the most use out of them.

I had the Posted For You Bundle sitting on my desk so I’ve used the postage stamp image and the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to add some layers to my card. The sentiment on my card and bow I’ve added are from the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. The leafy diecut has been cut with my Forever Flourishing Dies. I added a piece of Braided Linen Trim to match the Crumb Cake Cardstock under the leafy diecut. To add more texture, I embossed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder added it to my card base.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created gorgeous cards that make my sketch look good! Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
