Woodsy Christmas Card (One More #GDP058: Sketch Challenge)

I'm playing along with the Global Design Project challenge again this week, which is a sketch challenge. If you didn't see my post yesterday, click here

When you are playing along with a sketch challenge, remember it is just a jumping off point. Your artwork doesn't have to literally be just like the sketch. All products Stampin' Up!

This card was so much fun to create! Believe it or not, the wreath was made using just one stamp from the Penned & Painted set available in my online store here. I will be posting a tutorial with photos later this week with another wreath card made from that particular stamp set. 

I stamped the single image over and over with Garden Green & Crumb Cake on watercolor paper. I softened the look with a wet brush called an Aqua Painter.

I stamped a portion of the deer using a splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss powder. I love how great the Woodgrain Textured Embossing folder works with this card. See instructions below for how to get a folder just like it for free!

Supply List:

Want to earn a free gift during the month of October? Simply place an online order between $50 & $149.99 (not including tax & shipping) and use the hostess code shown in the top of the right hand column of this page. Your gift will be mailed around the second week of November. If your order is over $150, don't use the hostess code...you get all of the hostess benefits at that point! If you will be using the hostess code, see below for instructions on how to do so. 

Be sure and do not check "no contact" from demonstrator. If you do that, I will not be able to see your contact information to send your hostess gift. 

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Artfully Yours,



  1. Love the retro Christmas card.

  2. Kim, I keep looking at this Penned & painted set and wondering how much I would use it. I never would have seen this used at Christmas, but I love, love what you have done here!! I guess my wishlist just got longer! Thanks for playing with us at Global Design Project this week ♥

  3. Just so creative. I love when we can use our sets in ways we might never have imagined originally. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Love this card!!! So amazing to see how you created the wreath with the stamp from Penned and Painted! Thanks so much for sharing!
