Stamp Simply #115 - Mass Production

Today, Sharon issued the challenge to create a Holiday card that can be reproduced easily to make multiples. Upload your project to Spiltcoast and use the keyword "ssnotime115". Check out all the Challenge Details and see Sharon's creation on her blog No Time to Stamp.

Please check out the great samples from the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these totally creative designers:

This card has no coloring -- just embossing and layering, something you could do multiples of each element and reproduce fairly simply. I chose to keep it to only two colors, which could be changed to red or green for a Holiday card. I started with the White Embossed background stamp from the Cover-a Card series that Impression Obsession released, this pattern is called "Tapestry". I used the Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder to emboss the blue panel.

Building my way up, the next layer is a blue strip of card stock, matted in white, and a piece of pretty lace ribbon on the top, to dress it up. The final element is the Holiday Sentiment, also embossed with White Detail EP, cut out using Spellbinder's Labels Eight. I used a silver Zig Paint Pen to outline the edge of the sentiment, the next mat of white and blue were just hand trimmed using my scissors. I wanted a smaller frame edge than using the next size of Nestie would give me. Two blue gems to wrap it up. Simple elements, easily to do multiples of each piece and assemble quickly. Finished card size is an A2.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Family, Friends and good food! Some of the stores are opening at 4AM on Friday to kick off the Holiday Shopping season -- I can not wrap my head around getting up that early to go shop!!

  1. You're something else... =) My idea of easy is take some cardstock, stamp it, pretend monochromatic is the final effect, and you're good to go... ;)
