The first card uses this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS. And my, what a challenging sketch! Lots of layers! I chose a monochromatic color scheme to help make the card look less busy. All the designer paper is from the same stack of 'Bashful Blue' Designer Paper from Stampin Up! The other card stock colors are White and Bashful Blue. This card is so much prettier in real life because I covered each and every dot on the designer paper with Stickles so its very, very sparkly. The snowflakes are Cuttlebug Die Cuts. The image is retired Stampin Up! 'Winter Play' and is colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from Stampin Up! 'Baby Jesus is Born'. Both the image and the sentiment are mounted up on dimensionals.
My second card uses this week's sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet. The sketch actually had a big star on it, but I changed the star to a Sizzix Gingerbread Man Die Cut. The paper is Stampin Up! 'Holiday Treasures' Designer Paper. Card Stock colors are Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, and Real Red. I used a white gel pen on the hearts and to doodle on the Gingerbread man. I used a Sizzix Die for the photo corners.
My final card is for this week's Technique Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This is called a 'Hinged Card'. It was so fun and easy to make. The top lifts up to reveal the sentiment inside. The directions on how to make this card are on the SCS website. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll email you a link.
I used the same 'Holiday Treasures' Designer Paper from SU! on this card, plus Olive Green, Riding Hood Red, and White Card stock. The image is retired Stampin Up! 'Festive Friends' and the inside sentiment is from 'Sparkling Season'.
Have a great day! Amy
