Stamp Simply #163 – Tis the Season for Clean and Simple

Published by at 11 02 pm under Uncategorized

Tis the Season for Clean and Simple – Clean and Simple is definitely the way to go when we need to mass produce.  But it’s also a very refreshing and pleasing style to fall back on any time at all.  Today let us truly think Clean and Simple – SUPER SIMPLE.  And let’s make cards with Christmas OR winter in mind as we inspire each other with all our Clean and Simple creations! 

Anyone is welcome and invited to play!  SCS Keyword is ssnotime163 for those who upload at SCS.  There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all.  The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!!

And here’s my clean and simple Christmas card for today:

Very simple, to say the least!  These soft and petite snowflake print papers are from Cottage Christmas by Imaginesce.  The Merry Christmas is one of many stamps in a clear set by Wordsworth – Classic Christmas.  It is stamped in VersaMark and embossed in SU Detail White Embossing Powder.  The white sentiment gives it a freshness I like!

To adhere my new Satin Snowflake Ribbon I attached it to the  back edges of the panel with a piece of Scor-Tape and then just added a few small dots of glue to the paper seam right under the ribbon before I placed it down.

The inside uses another sentiment from the same set – Classic Christmas.  Just a simple card today, flat for mailing, and quick and easy to make with a bit of texture and interest added by using the Satin Snowflake Ribbon – fun!

Thanks for stopping in today!!!  It’s been a busy day here, to put it mildly!!!  But at the end of the day it always feels good to create something — and just remember, we don’t always LOVE everything we make — but we can still enjoy the process of the creation — and that’s where I’m at with today’s project — LOL!!!  Enough said!  Have a great weekend.
