JAI 339 sketch challenge - Santa's Sleigh

It's sketch challenge time at Just Add Ink & this time we're using this fun & flexible sketch created by Narelle.

I stretched the sketch out to a square to make this Christmas scene, using the fab Santa's Sleigh stamp & die bundle. A fave from the Holiday Catalogue, that happily will be carrying over when the catalogue ends (although not as a discounted bundle after 3 January).

I started off by building the sketch elements using 2 printed papers from the Candy Cane Lane paper pack, & some dazzling diamonds glimmer paper, then created my little scene with the Santa's Sleigh coordinated stamps & dies. I can't resist a cute reindeer & the sleigh is so beautifully detailed whether stamped as I did here or layered with the detailed sleigh overlay die (like I did on this card).

Stamping! I stamped the trees in old olive ink on pear pizzazz card, sleigh in real red ink on real red card, and reindeer in soft suede ink on kraft card. I love that the stamps give lots of lovely detail to the die cuts. Then I popped each of the elements on dimensions to give more shape.
I added a bannered sentiment from the Stitched With Cheer stamp set (retiring sadly) & cut it with the Bunch of Banners die set. Love these for different shaped banners... & you know I love a banner.

Thanks for visiting today & I hope you like how I used the sketch. Now head over to the Just Add Ink blog to see all the team's challenge projects & to try the sketch yourself. You can see & order the supplies I used below too.

I have more Santa's Sleigh projects to share, including a fun adaption of this card I think you'll like, so pop back again soon.

Inky wishes,

Lovely card, Di. The bright red is a stand out on the neutral background, and I love the little touches of bling. xx
