Simply Stampin' Sketch Week

Good morning!

Sorry I'm a day late posting what a nightmare! I had actually made my card last Sunday, I made one liked it so much that I made another matching one to keep in my stash, this card will be winging it's way to a friend later this week, (I hope she won't mind too much my posting it before the big day!) I completely forgot to take a photo of it before the challenge, and you can't take a photo in the dark!!

Anyway that enough of me babbling on! So as you have probably already seen this weeks Simply Stampin' challenge is a sketch and a great one I might add!!! (well done the amazing Kirei, for another blinder!) here it is

See what I mean, very versatile!

I decided to use some of the fabulous Candlelight Christmas DSP to make a non-christmas birthday card, I wanted to use the velvet window sheet (completely gorgeous, but a pain to photograph) I have used a teacup as my focal point for the oval element hope you like it!

I can't wait to see how you do with this one, don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's cards they are amazing!!!
Keep Craftin' xx

Simply Stampin Challenge

Good morning crafters,

It's time for a brand new challenge over at Simply Stampin' this week we are asking you to DIY DSP so just to be clear we want you to make you very own Designer Series Paper, and use it in a project.

I am still trying to get ahead for Christmas, so for my DSP I went with my fav new Christmas stamp set Watercolour Winter, It's a very versatile set, so it's perfect for this type of challenge.

I started off by choosing my stamps, I decided to go with the 2 step poinsettias, I was planning to just use the outline image but then change my mind and decided to alternate the block image and the outline. here is how my DSP turned out.

I started to make my card and then decided, I'd make a matching card and tag set, plus I still have plenty of my DSP left over to make something else!!

I teamed Real Red, Whisper White, and the Champagne Glimmer paper for real added glamour, and the great thing about it is you only need to use alittle for that great wow effect!

I wanted my DSP to be the main focus of the card and tag so I've tried to keep them pretty simple, I hope you like them, and that myself and the rest of the DT have inspired you to create your very own DSP and join in the challenge with us!

Can't wait to see you designs, xx
