STAMPlorations Sketch #24


It's the last STAMPlorations sketch of the year, and it's running until 28 December, so you've got loads of time to play along.

Because it's an extended challenge, you can enter this one more than three times, and Shery's throwing in a couple of extra prizes - a $5 gift certificate to one participant, and a $10 gift certificate to a participant who uses a STAMPlorations image, both randomly selected.


I saw baubles in the sketch, so I stamped and white-embossed the text on a piece of card, sponged Pickled Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord all over, then cut out three circles.

I added some silver parcel string (took me ages to tie those tiny bows!) and a silver die-cut sentiment.  You could make a masterboard with this design, then cut out loads of circles for quick card makes (maybe without the bows!).

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for loads of fabulous inspiration from the team, and from our guest designer, Julie of Handcrafted by Jules.
