The Artful Stampers Blog Hop 4

Woohoo!! We made it through our first month of Blog Challenges.

This week I set the team a Sketch Challenge, which I have to admit, I’m quite taken with.

Firstly, here’s my card.  Going for a Christmas theme in traditional reds and greens.

Get your santa on

Here’s the actual sketch, incase you’d like to give it a shot yourself.

Challenge 27th October-001

…. and yet another photo of those cute little Santa Outfits

Get your santa on 2

Can you spot my mistake?  I had originally only stamped and coloured one Santa Suit and then had the idea to do two more, only I didn’t realise that I hadn’t picked up the Smoky Slate Blendabilities until AFTER I’d finished colouring.  I did think it was going on a little differently.  I was using Wisteria Wonder!  I’m too lazy to go colour it all again though, to it stayed that way.  I’m sure whom ever gets the card won’t mind too much. 🙂 – I hope!

The Get Your Santa On Stamp Set is a Photopolymer set, which made stamping the ho! ho! ho! on an angle extremely easy and quick.  I’m not too fussed that all my ho!’s aren’t lined up perfectly.

I usually love to add Dimensionals to a few layers in my cards, but this time I’ve only popped up the Santa Suits to really separate them from the card front, and colours of the card.

Anyway….. onto the card recipe, and as always supplies are from Stampin’ Up!:
