Boy, Monday's are rough! I have discovered that in order to post "Simple Sunday on a Monday", I may have to type it up on Saturday! I am Distance Learning one of our grandchildren. Her brother started school last week, but we don't feel it is safe for her yet. Hopefully in January! So my days are filled with 3rd grade educating...it wears me out. Because of her autism, her reading is delayed, making every subject with Grandma right beside her. I usually take a meditation break for lunch....need my sanity.
But I really want to share these cards with you. Simple Sunday is my FaceBook Live that I do every Sunday at 3:00. Sometimes it isn't live, but recorded. I only have 2 days without the kids! I do a simple card, geared for those who are just beginning. Or like this week, for my busy friends who need to have several cards done at once!
Christmas is creeping up on us fast! And there is just so much time to get those cards in the mail. In my live, I talked about spreading you stamping time out over several days. If you are like me, you are in front of the television watchin your 8:00 and 9:00 shows.
- Monday during "All Rise", I cut out my card bases, score them
- Tuesday during "NCIS & FBI". I cut the DSP and sentiment squares
- Wednesday there is nothing now to watch, so I go to my studio and stamp
- Thursday (on this card) I would tie all my ribbons
- Friday is always in my studio (after my Mystery Card class) I glue them together! Now, that is if I needed alot to get finished. It gives you a little creativity every night and it is not as overwhelming at once.
This card would be awesome to do that with. I started with a basic card base of Thick Whisper White cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4" I have featured the NEW!! Classic Christmas Designer Paper.
cut at 4' x 5 1/4" it allows the base to show. My Sentiment is from the Christmas Means More
stamp set and is stamped on a 3" x3' square of whisper white card stock. I popped it up with some dimensionals for more texture. About 8" of Snowflake Splendor
ribbon tied to the bottom. Simple and pretty!
But what if I wanted to make it just a little bit more? This 2nd picture show the same basic card, but with a 3 1/2"x 4 1/4" piece of Shaded Spruce
card stock. I tied the ribbon onto the mat before adding it to the card base. And there is a little bit of coloring with Stampin' Blends added to the holly and berries. Just a little fancier, without too much added cost!
I know lots of you love to add the glam and glimmer of jewels, so this last card I have used Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels for the berries! I changed up the Shaded Spruce mat to a 3 1/2"x3 1/2" size. Then I added a 3 1/2"x3 1/4" mat of Cherry Cobbler
card stock. And then I proceeded to glue it down horridly crooked! You don't have to do that yourself, if you don't want to. More options! LOL!
So as you can see, there are so many different ways to use just one of the stamps in this set. I always look for versatile sets, to get the most bang for my buck. If you would love to make these cards, just click of the product links above and you will be directed to my store. As always I thank you for stopping in and for supporting my small business.
I'm Dreamin' about getting my Christmas cards started, you keep Dreamin' too!
