CAS Colours & Sketches #295 - Sketch & DT Call


This month at CAS Colours & Sketches we have another multiple hostess month. This week is my turn to be hostess and I have this fun sketch seen HERE and below to inspire your clean & simple card making...

CC&S are looking for some new members
to add to our Design Team!

Our blog is dedicated to creating greeting cards in the Clean and Simple style of crafting, alternating between colour challenges and sketch challenges. Design Team responsibilities include designing cards for our challenges and sharing them on your own blog, commenting on challenge entries and voting for our Weekly Winners each week, and acting as our host and creating challenge ideas for at least one month during the year.

If you would like to be considered for a position on our team, you must participate in last week's colour challenge and this week's sketch challenge so that we can see your work in both types of challenges. Please add the letters "DT" after your name when you link your cards for the two challenges, and make sure that your cards follow our Challenge Rules. Applicants will be contacted during the month of November.  Our new members will join us as our Guest Designers in December and start on the team full-time in January 2019.

Anyway, I hope you join in on this weeks challenge & the DT call, but here is my inspiration using this weeks sketch...

This little guy, Jolly Christmas is making a come back into the Uniko clear stamp inventory. Myself and the Uniko DT will be formally introducing him later this week, along with more Christmas / Winter themed products :) 

Anyway, he was perfect for this weeks sketch, combined with a HO HO HO background strip from another of the NEW Uniko clear stamps being introduced later this week ;)

I've used the Poppy Parade Stampin' Up! marker to colour Jolly Christmas in and added glitter to the brim  & bobble of his hat and the cuffs of his coat. I also coloured the tiny circles inside the HO HO HO strips with the same colour. Super simple and pretty quick to create!

That's all from me today, I hope thatI have inspired you to join in on the challenge?! If you need a little more inspiration, pop on over HERE to see what the CC&S Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love it! This is one of my favourite Santa images and I can't wait to play with him again soon. Love the background words! xxx

  2. Such an adorable image, Bev! Love the text as the stripes in the sketch!

  3. Like Karen, I too love the text used as stripes and I love just how clean and simple it all is x

  4. Oh Bev, this Santa is classic and corny and heartwarming and I can see him having a place of honour in anyone's Christmas Card lineup. Nice and bold and clean.
