Inky Paws Challenge #198 ~ Sketch Challenge

 Hello there crafty friend!
Who's up for a new challenge?! It's time to get our paws inky with a fun sketch challenge! I had so much fun with this one I made 3 cards! I hope you have a blast with it too! You have until Friday, May 26th to get your entries in for the #198 Sketch Challenge and a chance to win a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs!

This sketch is perfect for those scraps of pattern paper!! And so fun... I couldn't help but grab my Christmas papers. I do love to make Christmas cards!

When I saw the new sketch challenge I instantly thought of the sweet Christmas Trimmings Stamp Set that's on the retiring list. I love these cute girls getting ready for Christmas! This sweet stamp set is only $5.99, by the way, and a little kitty told me {hee hee} there's only 5 left in the shop. Go snatch one up before they are all gone!

Rather than try to adhere all the strips in a line just right on my mat, I adhered them to a scrap of thin {80lb} card stock. This way I can adhere them all neat and straight and then adhere them to my mat. So much easier!

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used for this stamp:

Skin ~ E000, E00, E11
Hair ~ Y02, Y21, Y26
Clothes / Hair Bow ~ YG11, G24, R20, R17, C00, C1
Gift ~ R20, R17, R27, C00, C1, C3
Scissors ~ C1, C3, Y15

I paired up the sweet Christmas Trimmings Stamp Set with the beautiful Meowy Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad. Such a great sketch for the paper strips I had left over in my paper pad. I did have to cut a couple extra pieces since I made three cards, but my mission this year while building my stash of holiday cards is to also use up those pretty pattern papers that I've been hoarding. 

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used for this cute stamp:

Skin ~ E000, E00, E11
Hair ~ E70, E74, E77
Dress / Shoes ~ R20, R17, Y11, Y06, Y15
Hat ~ R20, R17, R27, C00, C1, C3
Tree ~ YG11, G24, G46, E70, E74, E77
Tree Stand ~ Y11, Y06, Y15
Baubles ~ R20, R17, R27, YG11, G24, Y11, Y06, Y15

All of the sweet girls are die cut using the coordinating dies {unfortunately, these are retired and no longer available}. Each of the girls are adhered to oval layers I die cut using the Oval Frames Die Set.

Here's a quick list of the Copic Markers I used for this stamp:

Skin ~ E000, E00, E11
Skirt ~ YG11, G24, G46
Shoes ~ YG11, G24
Box ~ R20, R17, R27
Christmas Decor ~ YG11, G24, G46, R20, R17, R27, Y11, Y06, Y15

I didn't record my copic coloring for the girls but I did record my process in making the card. You can check out my process video here... Trio of Christmas Cards | Inky Paws Challenge 198 | Newton's Nook Designs.
