Wednesday Sketch ~ Stampin’ Up! ~ Peaceful Nativity

Hello there friends…

I have a challenging Wednesday Sketch to share with you. i created a square card following the layout of the sketch. Anytime you are using a sketch for inspiration remember you can rotate or substitute anything so just let your mind go and create something beautiful!!!

 

My husband loves nativities as I do so this card he really liked. He has said that he plans on making a card for two sweet friends of ours that have been like mothers to us. I told him I would help if he really wanted to. I will post them if and when it happens. HaHa!

I have colored the nativity scene using my Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. If you enjoy coloring and love the look of nice blends from light to dark then these will be perfect for you. They are great for beginners as well as advanced colors.

I have combined a couple extra die sets along with the Peaceful Nativity stamp set. I added in the Stitched Stars to represent the banner in the sketch. Then I actually stamped the nativity onto a piece of Whisper White card stock die cut from the “Celebration Labels” die set. All items used to create this card are linked below.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please consider subscribing by email along the side board. I am blogging 2 days a week currently so that would mean you would receive a notification email with each post. I appreciate you very much.

Focal Friday ~ Stampin Up Color Palette Featuring Nature’s Beauty

 

Hi Friends,

Today’s Friday Focal challenged me a little but I immediately knew I wanted to use the Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin’ ® Up! This stamp set reminds me of my son in law as he loves hunting. Lets look at today’s color palette.

 

 

The fall colors are always so much to play with. My favorite season is spring but I love the richness of the fall colors and are always fun to work with. Unfortunately fall seems to rush right by us so the time frame to play with these combinations are small. It seems Christmas comes so fast and before we know it it will be 2021!

 

 

For today’s first sample I truly tried to design almost exactly what I saw in the focal image and I struggled quite a bit. There is a lesson to be had here…

 

 

My husband surprised me with a little trip to the mountains so I rushed my way through this sample because I was short on time. The time away was so worth it though and once I got back home and back into the craft room I immediately created another card which I am quite happy with.

 

 

 

Now isn’t this a good learning experience? Do not allow stress or your lack of time to effect your creative spirit. If your project is not going as planned and your stressed by it just simply get up and walk away. Take a walk, take a bath, or like me, take a mini vacation. It is amazing how 2 nights away with the love of your life can change things. 🙂
