Paper Players 322 Clean and Simple Christmas


Happy Sunday, all!  We have had a wonderful week weather-wise here in SE PA....but today, I believe winter will make a little visit!  It was so nice yesterday....cool, crisp and clear!  I can't remember  a November quite like this!  Anyway, it's Claire's turn to host the Paper Players and she has a Clean and Simple Christmas challenge!  I can always use one of them!


Because my image was on the small side, I chose to do a notecard!  Here we go:


My friend Martha gave me this little winter scene from Altenew; I actually have a larger one as well, from Artistic Outpost.  But I liked the small scale of this one; I stamped it in Dapper Denim on heavy white cardsotck, along with a sentiment from Amy R Stamps (Handy Christmas Greetings), then added some snowy glitter and a few random snowflakes:


The only other thing I did was to round the corner, just to give it a little interest!  Clean, simple, one layer, one color....can't get much easier than that!  Isn't that what stamping is all about?  I love embellishments and layers, but sometimes, just need stamps, ink and paper!

I hope you'll play along with us this week as you start your holiday stamping....or maybe you're already finished!  But we can always add one more to our stash, right?  Check out what the others on the DT did as well:
Some serious crayon time!
 

Enjoy your day!

  1. Gorgeous - CAS simplicity at its best LeAnne! Inspired by you, I also tried to go with the one layer look this week! I love the snowflakes on your card - so realistic - and it's funny how adding something as simple as a rounded corner really makes a difference to a CAS card. As for Cassidy - choosing the correct colour is important stuff!

  11. Wow, that glitter looks so "real" in the picture. I love it. Beautifully CAS, beautiful Christmas card. Hmmm, I possibly look just like her when choosing a Copic.
