PPA168 - A Sketch Challenge


 The very talented Margaret Moody has another wonderful sketch for us this week at Pals Paper Arts! There are so many fabulous creations to inspire you. I hope you play along with us this week. 

I opted for a Christmas card. We've been having cool temps. in the Midwest making it feel more like October than August.

  •  Just add color to these images from the Color Me Christmas stamp set for some genuine holiday whimsy. 
  • The bold line images are the perfect framework for watercolors,  markers or add Candy Dots for tree ornaments for a little dimension.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Stamps: Color Me Christmas #131742 (wood) and #131745 (clear)
Paper: Seasons of Style DSP #132340, Whisper White #100730, Cherry Cobbler #119685 and Old Olive#100702 card stock
Ink: Old Olive # and Daffodil Delight Stampin Write Marker #119677
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon #132135 and Real Red Candy Dots #130931

We have a brand-new photopolymer stamp set available. Another Thank You (item 133454) is an exclusive, versatile set for any occasion that calls for a thank you.

What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.
