Christmas Gleaming Sketch Challenge

Good morning everyone.  Today’s BS & J Productions challenge is a sketch challenge.

I love sketch challenges because they are the easiest for me.  Whenever I don’t have a single idea in my head I look for a sketch challenge and fit it to whatever stamps I have.

I decided to use the Brightly Gleaming Suite of products that are in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  This is my favorite Suite in the catalog.  The stamp set, called Christmas Gleaming has beautiful ornaments and fun sentiments for the Holidays.  Plus, this set has TWO matching punches called Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.  If you buy the stamp set and the punches together you can save 10%.  The best part of this Suite is the Designer Series Paper called Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  It is absolutely gorgeous.  It uses Very Vanilla, Night Of Navy, Pretty Peacock, and Mossy Meadow and has beautiful copper foil designs.

Last week I told her you about attending OnStage in Hartford CT.  One of the presenters (I am sorry I can’t remember who) gave me this great idea to use on this card.  If you look at the ornament I punched out of Copper Foil you can see a design on it.  To make it I stamped the ornament on the Copper Foil Paper using Versamark and then embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder.  You should use your Stamparatus when doing this because the Copper Foil is slippery with the Versamark and smudged the first time I tried it.

Here is a close up of it:

Isn’t it gorgeous?  I just love this idea and I am sure you will see it more often from me.

The sentiment I used is from a retired stamp set but I also embossed it using Versamark and Copper Embossing Powder.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made.  I love that we don’t show each other our designs ahead of time so it is always a surprise for me too.

  1. Susan this is just beautiful. I wish that I could see how shiny it is in person, because I’m betting all that copper is blinding. I agree that this suite is wonderful.
