Inspire.Create.Challenge #95 - Sketch Challenge...


Good morning and welcome to another Inspire.Create.Challenge.  Today we have a sketch challenge for you.
This is what I call a really clean card.  That is, just a few elements but from this simple sketch the Team have created some amazing variations for you.

Yesterday I held my annual Christmas in July event, this is a bit of buzz theme at the moment but that is fine by me as I love creating for Christmas.  I used this sketch to create one of my display cards for the event.

For my card I have used the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle which has some beautiful imagery and dies but the Designer Series Paper which co-ordinates with it is absolutely gorgeous and what's more, it is in the discount DSP Sale range so what better time to stock up on some Christmas supplies!

Tidings & Trimmings

I kept the three elements just as they appeared in the sketch which shows off these beautiful papers.  I then stamped a stocking and bow and coloured them using Stampin' Blends.

The holly and gold sprig are cut using the co-ordinating dies.

The Design Team would love to see your creations made with this sketch in mind, you can change the orientation, swap the circle for a square, whatever you wish and don't forget to enter them into the challenge here.

I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch.  You can see what the rest of the team have been up to by following the link above.

It is set to be a very hot day here in the UK today so I am hoping to tuck myself away for some crafting fun to keep cool out of the sun!

Happy Sunday,

  1. Hello Jo, greetings from New Zealand, unlike the hot weather you are all enjoying at the moment, we have had a very wet and cold wintry spell here the last few days - just perfect for putting one in the mood for some Christmas creating with the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle. If we ask nicely, would you show us the projects you made at your Christmas in July event, thank you.
