IBSIC 88 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday!

For today's Inspired by Stamping Sunday Designer Feature, I have a card based on the IBSIC 88 Sketch Challenge:


Here is my take on the sketch:


I used the October Release Build a Stocking, Christmas Wreath, and Big Holidays stamp sets.  


I die-cut a star from the top layer and added three trees, using dimensionals, that were stamped with the tree image from the Build a Stocking stamp set. The large bow is from the Christmas Wreath stamp set, which you can get free with a $50 purchase!


The festive sentiment is from the Big Holidays stamp set. In addition to the Happy Holidays sentiment, the Big Holidays stamp set includes a Christmas and a Hanukkah sentiment. 

I stamped the small and large stars, from the Build a Stocking stamp set, and placed them with dimensionals around the sentiment and upper star cut-out.


I stamped a few of the small and large stars on the inside of the card as well.

The IBSIC 88 Challenge runs through December 15 and includes a color and a theme challenge (tags) as well as the sketch inspiration. You may use one, two, or combine all three inspirations. I hope you play along--one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to receive a $30 gift certificate to the Inspired by Stamping Shop!
