Good Thursday morning! We have a fun sketch challenge for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.

Stampin' Up! Inkin' Blog Hop 10/27
Stampin' Up! Inkin' Hop Sketch Challenge

This is such a fun sketch that my mind was whirling with ideas. I finally settled with this card.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest C'mas DSP.1

I’ve used the Sweetest Christmas DSP as the focus for this challenge – both as background and center image. These candy canes are so cute! I’ve also used Layering Circles Dies, Harvest Dies for the sentiment banner, 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Sweet Sorbet, and for additional embellishment the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in Sweet Sorbet. It should be no surprise then, that all the layer backgrounds are Sweet Sorbet :O)

Stampin' Up! Sweet Candy Canes for the inside.2

For the inside… Sweet Candy Canes stamp set and Sweet Sorbet ink for the candy cane & Garden Green ink for the sentiment – also from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set ~ stamped on Basic White card stock and layered on Sweet Sorbet, then adhered to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest C'mas DSP for Thur hop.3

For the envelope, more of the same Sweetest Christmas DSP adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit – and that was it! So easy, so festive, so perfect for this challenge. Now it’s time to hop on to visit Carol’s fun creation. I can’t wait to see what she has done. Click the next button to take you there or click on a name to visit someone else. :O) Enjoy hopping!
