A{moose}ing Holiday Card ~ October Sketch Challenge ~ Unity Stamp Co.

 Hello there crafty friend!
I'm so excited to be hosting the Unity Challenges again over in the Unity Show & Tell Facebook group. Let's kick off the challenges with a fun sketch!! Woohoo! Sketches are a wonderful starting point for a card design. I love to use them for my cards! I hope that you'll join us and play along.

Loving the fun layers for this sketch - perfect for pattern papers! The measurements included are for an A2 size card, but this sketch could be easily altered for a mini slimline or an A7 card... it could even be used for a fun scrapbook page! I share measurements just as a guide and keep in mind that they are approximate.

Today I'm sharing inspiration using the adorable A{moose}ing Holiday - Clarence. This is a sweet Itty Bitty stamp and he's just perfect for this sketch. In fact, many of the Itty Bitty stamps will work perfectly with this sketch!

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used to color up this adorable moose:

Heart / Red Ornament ~ R20, R14, R27
Yellow Ornament ~ Y11, Y15, Y35
Blue Ornament ~ BG0000, BG11, BG23
Antlers / Hooves ~ E21, E23, E25, E27
Head / Body ~ W00, W1, W3

The adorable moose and the sentiment are both popped up on the card with foam tape. You can check out my process video here... A{moose}ing Holiday Card | October Sketch Challenge | Unity Stamp Co.

One card just wasn't enough! I made a couple more to share as inspiration for other holidays.
This one features the cute Acorn Greetings Itty Bitty... a cute Thanksgiving Day card. The pretty plaid paper breaks up the patterns of the busy background papers just enough that mats aren't necessary for these layers.

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used for this card:
Leaves ~ Y15, YR21, YR15, YR68, YR27
Acorns ~ E21, E23, E25, E27
Outline / Dots ~ BG0000, BG11, BG32

A Halloween card was a must! My sweet daughter, Saydee, has been counting down the days to Halloween... just 25 days to go! She is a serious Halloween lover, like her mama! So I had to make a Halloween card! Aren't these jack-o-lanterns just the cutest?! Love them!! They're from the Get Spooked Itty Bitty stamps... perfectly paired up with some spook-tacular Halloween papers for a fun Halloween card.

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers for these spooky-cute pumpkins:
Stem ~ E53, E55, E57, E59
Pumpkin ~ YR21, YR15, YR68, YR27
Eyes / Mouths ~ Y06, YR15, N1
Outline ~ V000, V12, V15

A card for each of our upcoming seasons! Yay! I hope I've inspired you to pull out your Unity stamps and play along with this fun sketch challenge.

Here's another look at the sketch! Please know that the sketch is meant to inspire and not require. Feel free to alter it to work for your creation and most importantly have some inky fun! I can't wait to see what you create! Be sure to share your cards in the Unity Show & Tell group and also add them to the sketch challenge album in the group to be entered for a prize!! I'll see you back here next Thursday with more inspiration for this month's sketch challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
See ya next time.

Inky Hugs,
