Sketch 21 Challenge at STAMPlorations

Hi Everybody,

it’s time again for another sketch challenge at STAMPlorations and we are welcoming Elaine from Craft-E-Place as our guest designer. As always the sketch on offer is very versatile and you can use any style of card or project as long as the sketch is recognizable. Here it is:

This challenge will run until 17th October and the winner will be announced 19th October.

Here is my piece of inspiration for you:

Christmas Flower 1


It is pretty straight forward …. spray two pieces white card with red and green Artiste Spritzing Ink and allow to dry. Stamp the poinsettia from the Christmas Flower set twice in black and layer onto a piece of red card. Attach the panels to your white base card and add some faux stitching before stamping the sentiment from the SB Christmas & New Year down the side in black and attache the die cut ‘happy’ and some pearls to finish.

Here is an idea to give the inside of your card a make over too …
