Inkurable Sketch Challenge

WHOO HOOO! Sarah is back with a new look blog and another awesome challenge!

Check out the sketch challenge at Inkurable Stampers

I thought it was time to add to my slow growing collection of Christmas cards

All the pattern papers are from Bo Bunny Blitzen Collection 6x6 paper pad.

The cute row of reindeer was my inspiration to use this paper for the sketch.
All the pattern papers were edged with Walnut Stain distress ink.
The scallop edge is a EK punch.
Embossing folder from Basic Grey used on the white layer of card.
'Merry Christmas' stamped in Walnut Stain. Die cut with a Quickuts die. Dabbed Tumbled Glass distress ink over it before removing white card from die.
"Peace,Love Joy" stamped in Walnut Stain and punched out with circle punch. Edged in Tumbled Glass.
Green fibre from Making Memories.
All layered on to brown card
Both stamps from Darkroom Door Christmas Reindeer stamp set.


  1. I like it Shirley, love the different colours for Christmas and the idea of leaving the die cut in the die while sponging to give that nice clean finish.

  2. You're too clever, my purple friend, I must try the masking-with-nesties idea! A beautiful take on the sketch :)

  3. Fabby Shirley! Yes, I think it is time I consider making another Christmas card too :)

  4. Nice work Shirley, reminds me to start on the Xmas cards!!!

  5. Wow - great idea to make Christmas cards with the challenge! Love the colour scheme.

  6. Love how you used the sketch Shirley! A gorgeous christmas card! xx

  7. Lovely card Shirley! Those reindeers are sooo cute! Thanks for playing along!

  8. So lovely Shirl... love the reindeers and the embossed background... I guess seeing we are now in September, I should think about making some Christmas cards myself :))

    Have a fab weekend...
