Easy-Peasy Card Making

Hello there, holiday stampers! Oh yes, it's time to switch gears and prepare for some of those fun and precious holidays were we like to stamp our little fingers to the bone.

The good news is Fran Seiford at Stampendous thought of our tired little fingers and designed some super stamps called All in Ones. There are 10 stamps the cover Fall and Winter holidays and just as they are will take an easy one-stamping to get your card mailing list out faster. 

Fran created these stamps to include the image, sentiment, backgrounds and frame so all we have to do is just stamp it, sign it, and mail it. The simplest way to go is stamping on colored or monoprint paper, and adhere it on to a card base. Even more simple would be to stamp right on the card base adding a few color spots and move on to the next card.

All that said you still can't help, okay I couldn't help myself, to add some other fun elements to my samples today. 

Eek A Boo Stamp by Stampendous with Tricky Words Sentiment
Eek A Boo was colored with Chameleon Pens and hand trimmed then layered with neon green die cut paper onto a black embossed stenciled cardstock. Some Hot Fragments thrown over glue and then finished with a bow before gluing it down on the card base.

Here's the short list of supplies I used to get this card finished.
