Stampin’ Up! Boughs of Holly Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi stampers and card makers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  After finishing up all the Christmas cards for this season I ended up with a ton of bits and pieces of DSP.  A light bulb moment went off when I thought of the “scrappy technique” to make my card today.  It used lots of small pieces of DSP and made a pretty card at the same time.  I have used this technique before, and each card is unique and so pretty with all the wonderful papers that Stampin’ Up! has to offer.   After you visit my blog, please stop by our other creatives team members blogs to see what they created for you today with this week’s sketch.

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi stampers and card makers, today for our hop we have sketch challenge.  The Sweetest Christmas Suite was calling my name for this challenge.  With the candy cane DSP and the coordinating die, the flavors of candy canes are limitless along with the darling DSP too.  After you are done visiting my blog, make sure you stop by our other creative teams’ blogs to see what they made for the sketch.

The sketch:

I took a few liberties with the sketch and moved my sentiment from the top the bottom.  You could easily put the sentiment in either location and the card would still be fantastic.
