Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #380

October 12, 2017

I’m on a roll creating Christmas Cards for my classes at Beachmere and I found the latest sketch challenge at Just Add Ink.   I love playing along with their challenges as often as I can, unfortunately I missed the deadline for this one.   Anyway since it is nearly the end of the promotion for you to be able to earn the Merry Patterns stamp set, I thought I would share a few cards made using this stamp set and this will be the first.

I started by embossing Whisper White card with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder which I attached to scored and folded Soft Suede card.  I attached a piece of the Be Merry Designer Series paper to the right hand side of the embossed card.  I added a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper to the embossed card as well.  I stamped the reindeer image onto Whisper White card using Soft Suede ink and then stamped the “fill” image using Crumb Cake.  I have found that for this “fill” stamp you need to have a fairly dry ink pad.  If it is too juicy it just fills the pattern and you can’t see the detail in the “sweater”.  Anyway, once stamped I attached the image to Soft Suede card and then to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the “tis the Season” greeting using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I then coloured the “season” using a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker.

Love the finished card, especially as the designer series paper has tiny reindeer on it as well.  Thanks again Just Add Ink for the inspiration for my card.

Bye for now,
