STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #19


Time again for a new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations! This one is a really versatile one - I am sure you find it quite easy to use!



Since STAMPlorations just came out with absolutely gorgeous Christmas stamps I had to use one of the sets for this card. It is called Vignette: Christmas Block.  I used all the stamps in this set:


I created the background strip with the snowflakes, which I heat embossed in silver. Did the same with the bells, colored them with Copics and fuzzy cut them.  


The sentiment panel I stamped in aqua and sponged it lightly with the same ink. I also added some highlights with a white pen.


Here is the sketch:


 Head over to the blog to get inspired by our fabulous DT and our wonderfully creative Guest Designer Carol from Just Me: C
The challenge ends September 12, the winner will be announced September 14.


We also still have a prerelease discount going on - until September 5th you'll get them at a whooping 29% OFF. If you do not want to buy all of them there is a discount of 15% for the new August/September stamps. And if this is not good news enough - join our stamp club, get FREE shipping worldwide and receive fabulous discounts - for more info click HERE

I could not help myself and had to play in a challenge - Lesley's challenge #13 - just changed the grey to silver. It looks grey anyhow, if the light does not shine on it....


And of course Di's Snippet challenge over at Pixies Crafty Workshop - use a snippet. Buy the way Di is celebrating her 300 follower. If you don't know her yet you should pay her a visit. She has one of the most fun blogs out there!

See you over at STAMPlorations!

Eine klasse Karte hast du wieder einmal gemacht!!! Wenn ich deine Karten so anschaue, bin ich immer in Versuchung, mir die Stempel zu beschaffen, um annähernd ebenso schöne Karten zu gestalten.
