Paper craft project no. 272: Glad tidings

2014-09-25 Glad Tidings - A

It’s my turn to do a spotlight project at STAMPlorations, and this time I have two Christmas cards to share. These cards are quick and easy to make — the kind of cards I like to make for when I know I need a LOT of them. I used stamps from the September releaseHoliday Sketches: Christmas Flower, Vignette: Christmas Block, and Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year — as well as VersaMark watermark ink, ColorBox Midnight Mix’d Media Inx Chox, DCWV textured card stock, PanPastel Colors, and stickles. Check out the photo tutorial for these cards here.

I’d like to enter my cards to the following fun challenges: Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes; Simon Says Monday Challenge – Stencils & Stamps (I went with stamps); Addicted to Stamps and More #114 – CAS; ABC Christmas Challenge – S for Something Festive; Deep Ocean Challenge #87 – At Least One Flower; Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long #29 – Use Lots of Layers [I’ve got 4 layers — which, for this one-layer girl, is a LOT! ;o)]; and Crafting by Designs – Get Ready for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. What extraordinary cards! I really love how they have elements of “traditional” holiday cards, yet they are so fresh and modern! I like how you still made the Poinsettia a great focal point even though it’s in black and white. Great touch of bling with the centers of the flowers, too. Thank you so much for sharing these with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
