I used the Well Written dies from the Annual Catalog to cut the "welcome" greeting from Basic Black cardstock. I lined this up with the bottom left edge of the gray bar to balance the stars that are grouped on the right side of the card. Finally, I tied a simple bow using White Baker's Twine and mounted my image on Basic Black cardstock and then on a Coastal Cabana card base.
When I finished, I realized I hadn't used a single rubber stamp! Dies are wonderful for creating dramatic cards quickly and easily. I think I'll make another rubber stamp-free card for Wednesday - maybe I can keep the trend up all week!
I'd love to see cards you made without using rubber stamps or cards inspired by this color challenge. Leave your comments below.
The weather is chilly and perfect for remembering last Christmas. The Cup of Christmas stamp set (2019 Holiday Catalog) was perfect to highlight these pictures and I'm back to trying to use up my stash with the Holiday Thyme Designer Series Paper. I used the retired In-Colors Cranberry Crisp and True Thyme as well as the current Old Olive for this page. Additionally, I used my Cricut to cut the numbers and the retired Priceless stamp set for the steam flourishes coming out of the cups. Quick and easy page of Christmas memories!
Today, I have three card ideas to share with you. A very easy, Simple Stamping card using only stamps, ink, and paper; a card with a little bling added on; and a third card for those of you who like die cutting. All three cards use the Cup of Christmas stamp set and the Wrapped in Plaid 6"x6" Designer Series Paper.
All three cards were easy and fun to make! Whether you have limited supplies or a full craft room, beautiful holiday cards can be simple to make.
