Simple Stamping Christmas Cards

#simplestamping StampingCountry

Hello Friends,

How much beautiful Designer Paper do you have stashed away?  You know what I mean gorgeous, gorgeous paper sits in your drawer because you are reluctant to use it.  With Christmas less than a month away, I realized that I have been doing just that.  Which seems silly since I have a lot of Christmas Cards that need to be made and mailed.  My Solution to both dilemmas is #simplestamping.  Do you realize that from a single sheet of 12" x 12" designer paper you can cut six 4" x 5-1/4" pieces for card fronts and still have left overs for other card elements?   And do you realize that with, on average, 12 sheets of paper in every pack, that could be 72 card fronts plus some?  It gets even better than that!   Stampin' Up! makes coordinating card stock packages to match their Designer Papers.  Each card stock package contains 24 sheets or 8 each of 3 coordinating colors.   An average card base is an half a sheet of card stock.  Translated, that's 48 Card Bases!

With all that in mind, I have resolved to use all that beautiful, beautiful designer paper by the end of the Holiday Season on Cards, Tags and Gift Packaging, but for today let's talk about simple stamping and quick, easy Card Making.  Here's 3 Christmas Card Ideas to get you started.

#simplestamping  StampingCountry

All you need to make this Christmas Card is Card Stock, Designer Paper, Ink, stamps (I used the Christmas Pines stamps) and a bitty bit of linen thread.

#simplestamping  StampingCountry

All the supplies are the same for this card, but I eliminated the Linen Thread and used the Everyday Label Punch and a Pearlized Doily.

#simplestamping  StampingCountry

Same supplies minus the punch!  What will you do?  Hoard that beautiful paper for another year or put it to good use and enjoy it?


Have a fabulous day,




Save 10% Ink, Blends, Dies Plus Unexpected Sympathy Card

Hello Friends,

If you have been thinking of getting some new style ink pads, stocking up on new colors or scooping up a new die set or two, today's your day.  Today is the last Hurray for the Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza Sale.

Now about that unexpected Sympathy Card.  Have you ever thought of a Teddy Bear for a Sympathy Card?  My primary stamp set for today's card is the Baby Bear stamp set with the Ribbon of Courage and Better Together stamps carrying the load for the sentiments.  I love the 3-D look of this sweet Teddy Bear.  Three layers of ink makes him look almost life like.  For today's bear, I used Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Early Espresso Inks.

The Sending Love and Hugs to you stamp from the Ribbon of Courage stamps paved the way to turning my Bear card into a Sympathy Card.  I stamped my sentiment on one of my favorite dies from the Stitched Labels Die Set.

 Inside I used dies from the Support Ribbon die set and a verse from the Better together stamp set.  Well, what do you think?  Is it an appropriate card for a friend who recently lost her Sister?
