Sketch 20 at STAMPlorations

Hi Everybody,

Thanks for all your lovely comments, so glad you enjoyed my Blog Hop Projects.

This week we are back with another sketch challenge for you over at STAMPlorations.

As you can see it is quite an easy sketch to work with. This is exactly what I love about our sketches, they allow lots of room for your interpretation and creativity to flourish too. This challenge will run until 26th September and the winner will be announced two days later on the 28th.

Joining us as our Guest designer for this challenge is Darnell from djkardcreations with her fabulous creation and fantastic sense of humor.

Here is my piece of inspiration for you:

Grunge Floral Christmas


When I saw the sketch I immediately thought of using the VIGNETTE Grunge Floral Strips for my DT Card. Plus I’ve been making so many Christmas cards recently hence I couldn’t resist pairing the with HOLIDAY SKETCHES Christmas Candles and VIGNETTE Christmas Block. I simply stamped the snowflakes in red, embossed the strips with Pirate Gold embossing powder, stamped and fuzzy cut the bells, stamped my sentiment, layered it all as shown and finished off with some golden gems and glitter glue. A very straight forward and easy card to make. Here is the video to prove it …

Pop over to the STAMPlortaions Blog to see the fabulous projects my incredibly talented teamies made for your inspiration and find out about the fab prize Shery has in store for our challenge winner …. and of course to link up with your creation.

Have fun, enjoy and

Happy Crafting!!!! 🙂
