Saturday Simply Sketched Challenge No -25


Hello and welcome to the last Simply Sketched Challenge for 2017.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the designs from people taking part this year.

For this challenge we were given a theme of Christmas with the instruction we had to use two specific colours


I missed taking part in the last challenge so was determined I would enter this one.

I have used a ‘New to Me’ Stamp Set which I have fallen in love with and mine design is below


My card size is 5.75″ Square and I used Island Indigo as my base.

I cut a matt at 5.25″ Square out of Fresh Fig and then glued it to the base.

I wanted a contrast so chose Whisper White Cardstock which I had embossed using the beautiful ‘Softly Falling’ Textured Embossing Folder.

This folder is perfect for Christmas and adds dimension to any card.

Using the lovely Star of Light Stamp Set, I embossed the swirl using Versamark, White Embossing Powder and then heated the powder using my Heat Gun.

That was half of my background completed as I had already attached the embossed Whisper White panel on the left hand side.

Using the Thinlits and my Big Shot, I then cut out different sizes of stars using the above colours.

The sentiment is from above stamp set, stamped in Fresh Fig on Island Indigo Cardstock then cut out using the Classic Label Punch.

To finish off my card and for some ‘sparkle’,   Rhinestones have been added.


I hope you like my design and would love you to leave me comments


Happy Crafting
