Cardmaking Sketch Challenge – Casually Crafting Design Team October ’21 Blog Hop…

Our blog hop this month is a cardmaking sketch challenge – these can be a really great way to start you off making a card when you just don’t know what to make. You get to choose stamps, papers and colours of your own and you can interpret this design however you like.

Casually Crafting Design Team cardmaking sketch challenge

I am hopping today with the lovely Casually Crafting Design Team, a group of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on Casual Crafting with you, keeping things fun and achievable for all. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the gang have got in store for you, just check out the links at the bottom of the page.

A handmade card made for a cardmaking sketch challenge using the Be Jolly stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I wanted some fun and easy colouring in for my card, so I picked up the Be Jolly stamp set, a lovely set with the cutest Santa Claus, perfect. And I paired it with the gorgeous Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. Maybe not the first choice of products to go together but I think it really works!

The card base is Real Red cardstock 14.5cm x 21cm scored in half at 10.5cm, and the DSP layer is 14cm x 10cm. The strip down the middle is Real Red cardstock again, 14cm x 3.5cm and the DSP here is 14cm x 3cm. My 2 panels are Real Red cardstock 8.5cm x 5.5cm and Basic White 8cm x 5cm.

I stamped and coloured the Santa’s on scrap Basic White card and then fussy cut them out. The greenery stamp is from my all time favourite Merry Moments stamp set, I simply added a few ‘sprigs’ in the corner of the white panel and also a sentiment, from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.

A fairly quick and simple card for you today, but wow – how much fun to make! Why not have a go at this cardmaking sketch challenge for yourself, I would love to see what you make!

Until next time, Happy Stamping
