Stampin' Up - Art With Heart Team Blog Hop November 2018 - Sketch Challenge

Well this is the last Art With Heart team monthly blog hop for this year however the weekly colour creation hops are on going through out the year so there is still plenty of inspiration from the team.

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring a card sketch. We hope you like how we have each put our own spin on the sketch and that it inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous cards. If you are inspired by the sketch, please share with us!

I have been quite literal in my interpretation of the sketch tonight and made a Christmas card with it!

Illuminated Christmas, His Light, Subtle TIEF, Rhapsody in craft, Christmas Cards, DIY Card, AWH Blog Hop,

I have used the Illuminated Christmas and His Light stamp sets for this card. The Subtle TIEF was used on champagne foil paper. I do have a love of copper foil but I thought I would use the champagne foil today and it looks so gorgeous embossed in the subtles folder. I have to thank Kate Morgan for that lovely idea as she used it a few weeks ago in one of her blog posts.

I have heat embossed the star in copper on very vanilla and then highlighted with daffodil delight ink using a sponge dauber. The gorgeous DSP is from the Joyous Noel Specialty pack and the little bow is made with a combination of the cherry cobbler and very vanilla festive farmhouse cotton twine.

The sentiment is from the His Light stamp set and I have cut it out using one of the thinlits from Petals and More thinlits pack. The rhinestones on either end are the clear ones but I have used my dark cherry cobber Stampin' Blends to colour them.

Now it is time to hop over to my the lovely and talented friend Monika, I always look forward to seeing what she has created for our blog hops.
