Clean and Simple Christmas

 Hi Friends! 

Happy Belated Thanksgiving to my friends in the United States!  This year our Thanksgiving celebration was a bit different- we were unable to get together with our family (since all of them live out of state), so we enjoyed a quiet lunch with two of our closest friends.

We are praying that the pandemic will be over soon, but we are very thankful that the Lord has protected us from the virus so far! 

I know that many of you are also staying socially distanced and may be shopping online this weekend to take advantage of the Black Friday/Thanksgiving Weekend sales.  If so, I wanted to let you know about the Stamp Simply Thanksgiving special:

One benefit of staying home is that I have a bit more creative time and today I am sharing a quick set of Clean and Simply (CAS) Christmas cards that I designed using
Stamp Simply stamps and dies.

As those of you who follow my blog know that I enjoy playing along with challenge, so I am linking this card into the IN{K}spire_Me #437 “Festive Flowers and Trees” Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge. 

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the Stamp Simply blog to check out all of the inspiration from my fellow Design Team members, I encourage you to do so, tremendous talent from all!

To create this set of cards:

On three separate white cardstock panels, stamp the sentiment from the Jesus stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Trim the panel, mount onto black cardstock and adhere the entire panel onto a white card base.

Stamp three of the poinsettia image from Floral Clusters- Winter Poinsettia using Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.    

Once the embossing has cooled, color the poinsettia images using water-based markers. Die cut the poinsettias using the coordinating die and mount onto the card fronts with chipboard or dimensional foam.

Finish off the card by adding white highlights to the berries and floral centers with an extra fine white paint pen.

Stamp Sets: Floral Clusters- Winter Poinsettia,  Jesus  (Stamp Simply)
