Merry Christmas JAI 132

August 24, 2012 | 6 comments

I’m finally here with a Challenge Card and am hoping to get a few more done today. With any luck I’ll get back into the swing of things ( I know I’ve said this before) and have some regular posting and creating going on.

My card today uses the JAI 132 Sketch.

When I saw this sketch I knew straight away that I wanted to use it for a Christmas Card. I have a few sneak peeks for you with this card.

There’s new DSP, a new In Colour and a new Stamp Set. I really love the new DSP and can see me using lots of it. You’ve already seen some of it in this post of my Christmas Tree. I’m also liking the new In Colour I’ve used and the Stamp Set, well what can I say. I’ve had this one for over a year thanks to a wonderful friend but haven’t shared it on here yet as it wasn’t something in our catalogue. I’ll see if I can locate the card I made last year for Christmas and share another time.

So would you like to see my card?

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Bells & Boughs
Card: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Watercolour Paper, Be Of Good Cheer DSP
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Aqua Painter.

To get some depth and a closer colour match for Cherry Cobbler with my water colouring I’ve used lots of layers allowing them to dry in between. Could probably go more but I was happy with the result.

I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of this stamp set over the coming months. It’s such an old time traditional Christmas Set to me and one that’s not seasonal (winter or summer) related. It just says ‘Christmas’.

Till next time…

    Great take on the sketch, Nikki – lovely Christmas card! I LOVE this DSP, too; it’s beautiful, isn’t it? Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week (and for being so quick off the mark, in being the first entrant!).
