Stampendous Challenge Saturday!!!

Changito-Oct2011

It's the first Saturday of the month, and that means it's time again for a new challenge with the Stampendous team! This month we are looking towards the holidays AND trying to keep it Clean and Simple. That's right - we are making Clean and Simple (CAS) holiday cards!! You'll see a few team members showing off more than one card today; some chose to make one CAS and then take that design and showcase how to "step it up". Others chose to make sets of CAS holiday cards that could be given as gifts or used to make a dent in the Christmas card list.

I love making Clean and Simple cards!!! This morning, I made five of these cards!!!

Stampendous-CASBootcamp

Like I said above….this card is EASY PEASY.

I stamped my focal image, Stampendous Cling Key Note (CRP128) on kraft cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia pigment ink. After stamping, I colored the holly leaves and berries with color pencil. I then tied a ribbon with a button. Simple.

Our challenge to you this month is to join us in making CAS holiday cards. We want to help you get into the holiday spirit, so this month we are giving away a Cling Jumbo Sparkle Joy set to a random winner. You don't have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but we sure love it when you do! You have until Thursday, November 3 at 11:59 PM EST to add your link to the linky tool, and we'll draw a random winner. You can enter as many times as you'd like.

Take a peek at what the rest of the Stampendous Design Team and Blog Stars are creating for this month's challenge

This is fabulous! I love the tone-on-tone with the colored holly and then the red ribbon. It creates such a striking look. Great button accent.
