Time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this week its a sketch. I do love a sketch challenge, and usually I aim to change some aspect. But this week, I’ve kept things simple, and let the beautiful Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper do all the talking.
I am not usually a green person, but I realised at the weekend that I’ve been using a lot of green recently. I think it’s mainly because both of the packs of Designer Series Paper in my collection are both floral / leafy prints, and this has led me to create green cards.
The Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper has several pieces with gold foiling, and I love this simple Old Olive and Gold colour combination.
Please pop over to the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog and see what the other members of the Design Team have been creating based on the sketch, and add your own projects to!
This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a fun colour combination (although it did hurt my head a little bit trying to come up with a card this week!).
I’d been in my craft room for a while before I managed to make this card. I’d been trying to sort out my catalogues ready to post, and had YouTube on in the background, and I’m sure whichever card maker I was “watching” did something with watercolour. And so that sort of led me to create this;
This pretty floral stamp is from the Ornate Style Stamp set, our sneaky peak of the new Annual catalogue. Here I’ve stamped it in Versamark onto Watercolour Paper and heat embossed it with clear powder before watercolouring it with the colours from the challenge.
I wanted to keep the sentiment pretty simple, leaving the focus on the watercolouring. The ‘Thanks’ is taken from the other stamp set in the Ornate Garden Suite, Ornate Thanks. It is simply stamped onto a flag of Vellum with Night of Navy ink. I did leave this to dry for several hours before adding it to the card.

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah. Today’s post is for the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog, where we have a fun sketch challenge this week. I love a good sketch, they really spark my creativity, and help me out when my crafty mojo has up’d and left (something that’s been happening to me a lot recently!). This week I thought I would use the Ornate Garden Suite, which arrived in my craft room last week and I hadn’t had chance to a play with.
This pretty suite is brand new, and a bit of a sneaky peak of the up-coming Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Ornate Garden contains two wonderful stamp sets, and two very handy die sets, an embossing folder, plus some lovely Designer Series Paper with Gold Foiling, ribbons and some Gilded Gems too.
Here I’ve used one of the Ornate Layers dies, over the Designer Series Paper to create a different background. Then finished with a lovely large sentiment which is perfect for the moment, an embossed circle of vellum, a dinky ribbon bow and one of those Gilded Gems.
Check out the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog to see the sketch and what the rest of the Design Team have been creating this week, PLUS add your own creations using the sketch as your starter.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon
