Simple Stamping Sunday




Hello, and welcome! Today I have a very sweet, and simple card. It is simply made up of three ink colors, stamped on a Whisper White cardstock layer, then mounted on one of our Whisper White Note Cards.


Have you ever been intimidated by stamping, and card making because the projects looked too hard to do? I know I have! Every once in a while I like to get back to basics, and make a quick, pretty card. This one took me under 5 minutes start to finish. I picked three coordinating colors from our collection that I rarely use together - Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, and Soft Sea Foam. The stamps are from the Painted Glass Stamp Set. Our Whisper White Notecard Set comes with envelopes so that made this project even easier, and time efficient. Although you can stamp directly on the notecard, I chose to make a Whisper White layer just in case I stamped something crooked. I got lucky, and all came out beautifully.


I hope you will give simple stamping a try. It's so gratifying to complete a beautiful project in minutes.

Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Boxes Plus Sneak Peek Geared Up Garage





Do you need any last minute Christmas ideas? These little pizza boxes are pretty darn cute. I haven't added anything to mine yet, but I plan to add a gift card as well. For the Snowman Poop, I plan on adding some white Tic Tac candies on top of the gift card. I will use Raisonets for the Raindeer Poop box. So fun!

Now here's a sneak peek of some products in the upcoming Occasions Catalog. It goes live January 3, 2019. These products are from the Garage Gears Suite. This box was one of our make 'n takes at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event last month.




The designer papers are just cut to 3 3/4" squares for the top of the box. You can add some to the inside as well. I added a belly band to the Raindeer box that measured 1 1/2" x 9 1/2". You really don't have to add it unless you want because the boxes stay closed on their own.


Here are some of the supplies I used:

Mini Pizza Boxes
$6.00

$21.00
Geared Up Garage Cling Bundle

Sweet & Simple Christmas Cards





I needed a few more Christmas cards, and I knew I wanted them to be quick, simple, and flat for mailing. The easy design of my cards met all of my criteria. My first step was using stamps from the Farmhouse Christmas set along with the Stamparatus. Next, I simply punched out 5 circles from my Festive Farmhouse Designer Paper using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, and adhered them to the top Whisper White layer with Tombow Multi Purpose Glue. I layered this onto a matching color mat, then to the card base. The last step was adding a few of the Santa's Enamel Shapes, and I was finished in a flash.


You still have time to make some special handmade Christmas projects. Please let me know if I can help you in any way!



Card Measurements:
Thick Whisper White Card Base: 4 1/4" x 11"
2nd Card Layer: 5 1/4" x 4"
Whisper White Card Layer: 3 3/4" x 5"

Paper: Thick Whisper White, Regular Whisper White, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce

Ink: Old Olive, Real Red

Stamp: Farmhouse Christmas

Accessories: 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Santa Enamel Shapes, Medium Whisper White Envelopes
