Well, it's Friday and Sharon at No Time to Stamp? has another challenge for everyone! As Christmas is literally just around the corner, any cards we make at this point need to be quick - really quick -- BEYOND QUICK!!! And that's what today's challenge is. Create a Christmas card (or card for other event if you are done with Christmas cards) that are SO SIMPLE you could assume that a creative stamper CASING your card COULD MAKE 6 of them in 30 minutes or less -- now that HAS to be a simple card!!!! No other rules. You can link your creation by leaving a comment on Sharon's post, or posting it to any online gallery--use the keyword "ssnotime66" .
I needed some quick cards for my downline and my time was running out! I saw a cute card recently on Clean & Simple Stamping and she credited it to Becky Oehlers!!! So off I went and made 13 cards in about an hour! Not bad!!
I cut circles from the Ski Slope DP with my Nesties; Warm Words' "sparkle" was stamped in Encore silver and the ornament top was made with SU's Brushed Silver cardstock punched with the Scallop Edge punch. I cut the punched pieces between the scallops to make the top shape, then added a silver "string" and a little sparkle (to cover up an "oops"!) with a Zig Painty! Quick and easy! I punched some small stars from my scraps to accent the inside, as you can see above! I hope this inspires you to make some quick cards--be sure to post them to Sharon's blog so we can all enjoy them!
