Sketch Christmas card with Charlie Brown Tree Stamp

I found a Christmas Card Challenge blog called Tis The Season and they have challenges running for two weeks at a time. I believe there are no prizes for the challenges and that's OK because I like this challenge because this one is a sketch challenge. This is challenge #TTS22.

 I used the Sentiment "wishing you a bright & sparkling holiday season" from this stamp set from Hero Arts CL629.
 I also used the little tree from the stamp set on the left, (I wrote winter wonderland on it in sharpie so that could be the name but I am not sure).  I used the stamp set on the right just for the sentiment "seasons greeting" (I'm sorry I don't know the name of this stamp set).
 Here I took the tree and layed it on my Neenah Bright White paper and found a Sizzix circle die that fit perfectly.
 I used Stampin UP Sahara Sand ink and stamped ounce on scratch paper and then on my cut out circle.  It gave me a lighter image so I could color over it with my Stampin UP markers in Basic Grey, Garden Green, and Baked Brown Sugar.
Finished card, I used some neon gems from Micheal's (their Recollection's brand) and also there Star gems.

The pattern paper is from TPC (The paper studio by Hobby Lobby), its an 8 1/2X11 stack called Four Seasons.  I added Stampin UP dimensionals to the back of the tree.

Inside of the card, I added some doodling with a white gel pen and added some more patterned paper.


  1. Great job with the sketch! I love that little tree, it makes me think of A Charlie Brown Christmas :) Also, love how the inside of the card is finished and ties in to the front of the card!

    So glad you found our blog, and thanks for playing along with us at 'Tis The Season!

  2. Jennifer, love your take on our sketch. As I was reading through your blog and looking at your pics it made me think of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Guess Lisa thought the same too. lol Such a cute the colorful ornaments on your tree and the fact that you took the time to do a little something on the inside too. Hope you come back and play some more with us at 'Tis the Season. :)

  3. Jennifer, great job! I love your Charlie Brown tree. I also love how you carried over the front of the card into the inside of the card. Great work!
