Sending You Joy- Two Challenges in One

Hi Stampers!!

I had a chance this evening to create a card using the Paper Players PP213 ColorChallenge by Anne Marie along with the Freshly Made Sketches FMS154 Challengeby Cindy L.


I hope you will have a chance to visit both sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!

To create this card:

Ink the Christmas Bauble and Endless Wishes sentiment images onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink.

Color the ornament using Stampin’ Write Markers- Always Artichoke, Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze and Baked Brown Sugar.  Use an AquaPainter™ to add Frost White Shimmer Paint to the Baked Brown Sugar area and add a few highlights using the Chalk Marker and carefully cut out the image by hand.

Layer a strip of retired Always Artichoke Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) and a strip of Cajun Craze DSP (from the retired DSP stack) onto a pieces of Blackberry Bliss cardstock for the vertical elements of the sketch.

Mount a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock for the background panel.  Add the Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze strips.

Adhere a piece of Park Lane DSP to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock (rounding the corners with the Envelope Punch Board before adhering together) and mount this panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the retired Gold Cord to the ornament and mount the ornament to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Mount the entire panel to the card front and add the sentiment to the upper right corner of the Park Lane DSP panel (punch the sentiment out using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and layer onto a circle punched from Blackberry Bliss prior to adhering to the card front).

Add a few Pearls to the center of the ornament to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Christmas Bauble, Endless Wishes

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink , Stampin’ Write markers- Always Artichoke, Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Baked Brown Sugar; Chalk Marker

 Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Park Lane DSP, retired Always Artichoke Christmas DSP, retired Cajun Craze DSP Stack

Wow, Julie! This card is fantastic! Such a beautiful design. Love all the matting, which really shows off the details of the sketch, and that ornament is out-of-this-world gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
