Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge


Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*.  Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

Welcome to our 3rd sketch challenge. I am really enjoying taking part in these challenges and am really getting inspired by my fellow demonstrators, I hope that I can inspire you a little today!

Another 2 weeks have flown by! Can you believe it is now less than 5 weeks until Christmas? I personally am getting into the festive spirit already and cant wait to start sending out my christmas cards. This week I decided to get myself ready and use this weeks sketch with a Christmas theme.

Here is this Week's Sketch:

At first look my card may not look at all like the sketch, I did some dramatic alterations such as turning the sketch upside down but I hope you like it. I love how these sketches can be transformed into something completely different by every person who uses them. 

Yet again I have used my favourite In-Colour of Mint Macaron and as in our first challenge I used the Softly falling embossing folder. This time I inked the embossed card with a sponge and soft sky ink and gave it a slightly graduated look from top to bottom to really make the snow stand out.

I really love the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and matching dies. They are available in the Annual catalogue and I think they are easy to miss when we have a dedicated christmas catalogue to pick from but they are lovely to use! I think that they look gorgeous and because they are photopolymer you can use the 3 step stamping technique to really make a stunning image. I will be sharing some other cards made with this stamp set in the near future so be sure to check back for more inspiration using this stamp set!

All that is left for me to say is please keep hopping by using the buttons below, there are some very talented ladies taking part in the sketch challenge and I am always totally amazed by them. A very special mention to Ania who will be celebrating her Birthday next week!

Thanks for hopping by,
