Christmas Stampin All Year Long



The Challenge this week over at Christmas Stamping All Year Long is a Sketch Challenge, hosted by our savvy leader Maria! Look HERE to see the sketch . Well of course if you know me well, you know that I absolutely have to alter the sketch ever so slightly! So, when I saw this sketch, I knew it would be just perfect for a gate fold card!




The Delicious New DP is from Basic Grey! Very yummy indeed!


Holiday Hedgehogs, still remains one of my favourite stamp sets. I have had these little fellows since I first started with Stampin' Up! in late 2003 and just can't part with them.





I got some more practice with my Prism Pencils and Gamsol. Still needs work, but I'm starting to like the effect that I'm getting! I picked up the little buttons from Fancy Pants a couple of years ago, the brown buttons are from Rusty Pickle. To give the image another little bit of bling, I added glazing pen to the Candy Cane and a little Stickle Snow Storm.
Hope the beginning of your week runs smooth and Happy Stamping!

  14. I think I have that stamp set too! I kept all the SU hedge-hogs that I bought. . .I think I kept all the SU stamps I've ever bought. . .seriously. Unfortunately, they're all sitting in my garage gathering dust. I always say to myself that I will use them again one day so I can't get rid of them. Can we say "pack rat!"! LOL!

    Love your gatefold card, Vicki! Your card is awesome! What a fantastic idea to create a gatefold card! Love what you did with the inside too! Very pretty. Awesome job on your coloring. . .I love Prisma Pencils w/gamsol. . but it sure takes longer to color the images, don't you think?
