Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenges Challenge #053

Hello and welcome I am Karen Farquhar from Australia and thank you for joining me today for Inspire.Create Stamping Challenge #053. Challenge #053 is a Sketch Challenge.  
I had a number of cards to create this week so I thought I would use the sketch from the challenge for all of them just to showcase the versatility of our Stampin' Up! products.
My first card is a very simple Christmas card. To create it I chose to gold emboss the 3 ornaments from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set. This set coordinates with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch. As you may be able see two of my ornaments where punched out of the front panel and then recessed inside the punched out images and the centre ornament is mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals to give depth and dimension to my card.

The Perfectly Plaid Stamp set was my next choice, with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch, for a card I needed to create for my Stamp-A-Stack class. Same again with this card the little tree is punched out of the front panel then a piece of Wrapped in Plaid DSP is recessed behind the panel to add dimension.

And my third card is for my Granddaughter who made her Confirmation this week. Created with the same sketch but with a portrait orientation using the Hold On To Hope Stamp Set and coordinating Cross of Hope Framelits
