Stampendous Saturday Continues on with our Clean And Simple (CAS) Holiday Card Challenge

Good morning!!!

It's the first Saturday of the month, and that means it's time again for a new challenge with the Stampendous team! 

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 chose to stamp up a FUN new Christmas Set, Cling Jumbo Holly Holidays


In addition to the fabulous sentiment with this set, it also had a great border stamp…

I love the Cling Jumbo Stamps that have the larger sentiments.  They are easy to stamp and as you can see, take up most of the front of your card with the beautiful script.  For this week’s card, I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink  on a piece of patterned paper and heat embossed with Alexandrite PEARLustre Embossing powder.  I matted the sentiment panel and placed some brads. 

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.

Do you need some more CAS Stampendous inspiration?  I know just the gals…

Love that large sentiment and your color choices.

I love the simplicity of your design. The background paper is gorgeous without taking over, and using the Pealustre EP has to be gorgeous in person!

The sentiment is very pretty on the patterned paper. Love it!

the beauty of this card is in its simplicity.
