Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge more Holiday Cards

Happy Friday! This weeks Bloggers Challenge is a Sketch Challenge, if you've visited here before you've seen this sketch, as I used it when I hosted a challenge at Kitchen Sink Stamps. Being the busy time of year it is, I didn't have time to create a sketch and send it on to the Challenge Members, heck, I even gave this same sketch as a Challenge to a Yahoo Group I belong too.


First up a C&S Holiday Thank You Card using images from Kitchen Sink Stamps Limited Edition Year of Thanks II Tin, I just love the reindeer and snow flourish! The reindeer was stamped in Memento Lady Bug on White Diamond card stock from Paper Temptress, you need to see how beautiful this paper is IRL! I stamped the snow flourish over the Reindeer in Memento Summer Sky. The sentiment is from the Reindeer image, I actually cut the sentiment away so I could use it other places without having to do any omitting while stamping. The beautiful Red texture paper in the background is Red Pepper Embossed Columns.

Here's another card using this weeks BC Sketch. I used Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Gift for my focal image, the sentiment is also from this plate. The Gift is stamped on White as follows: #4 Stampin' Up! Bravo Burgundy, #3 Bravo Burgundy, #2 Bravo Burgundy stamp off, #1 Bravo Burgundy stamp off. To stamp the Ribbon: #3 Stampin' Up! Bordering Blue, #2 Bashful Blue, #1 Bashful Blue #4 Brocade Blue. The sentiment was stamped using Memento Bamboo Leaves. I used the Out of the Box Technique when cutting my focal image, layering on a piece of Bravo Burgundy.

Ink - Stampin' Up! Bravo Burgundy, Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue, Memento Bamboo Leaves

A little on the busy side for me, and not normally a color combination I would use, but I think it works here. The Bashful Blue panel is embossed with a CuttleBug Folder. The sentiment and snowflake come from Our Daily Bread Designs Peace & Joy set.
