Quick & Easy Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends …

and a Happy Saturday to you!  It’s a little gloomy outside today, that’s OK … makes for a great stampin’ day!

This afternoon I’ll be setting up my Stampin’ Studio for my “Christmas Stamp Camp” tomorrow.  So today I thought I would share with you a little inspiration for card ideas.

I began with some left over designer series paper from my last stamp camp, and came up with this quick and cute card.  My paper is the “Winter Frost Specialty Designer Paper” located on page 29 of the Holiday catalog.

Because our designer paper is designed to coordinate so nicely, the core colors I am using are the Pool Party and Island Indigo.

Next I decided to use the “Deck the Halls” stamp from the “Christmas Messages” stamp set on page 34 of the Holiday catalog.  I love when Stampin’ Up! puts the inner verses for our cards along with the greetings…. makes life so much easier!

I wanted to jazz it up a bit more, so I added one of those cute new ornaments from the “Christmas Collectibles” stamp set.  And talk about making life easier … Stampin’ Up! has a coordinating punch, the “Christmas Ornament” punch so we don’t have to cut these out!  Both of these items can be found on page 35 of the Holiday catalog.

To finish off the card, I added a little bling!  First as sliver of the Silver Glimmer paper, and then a rhinestone in the center of my ornament.

Wow … wasn’t that easy!  And quick!
