clean & simple sunday no. 115

Welcome November!! Back this week with a regular clean and simple Sunday card but I wasn’t quite ready to put my Christmas card stamps away after the Holiday Card Series 2014 ended…


I created this card using a panel of sugar card stock on top of a base card in sugar card stock. The background snowflakes were stamped in lime and sky inks, the sentiment was stamped in lime ink and the snowflake on the sentiment panel was stamped in cherry ink to compliment the cherry snowflake. I popped up the sentiment panel with 3D foam squares and added a few cherry twinkle stickers to tie the card together and give it a bit of sparkle.

This is another one of those holiday cards that would be very easy to duplicate in large quantities.

I’m going to try to pull together some ideas for Thanksgiving since many of you like to send a Thanksgiving card across the miles to friends and relatives you don’t get to see over the holiday weekend. I’m also planning to put together a few stamped table accessories to add something special to your holiday table so stay tuned for more stamping ideas this month!

a|s consultant challenge: twill

A Muse|Studio corporate office has challenged it’s creative consultants to use TWILL in a project and submit as entry to a contest they are sponsoring…


This is my entry! I used the narrow french roast twill in my card design as loops behind the snowflake die to give it a little lift and dimension. I also repeated the twill along the top of the scallop.

A Muse|Studio twill has nice shine to the threads which dresses it up a bit from the normal pure cotton twills on the market. The pattern on the twill is a subtle herringbone design which adds an interesting detail to any card project.

A|S offers twill in two widths —3/8″ & 7/8″ and two colors—french roast and vanilla.  Best of all, it’s currently on sale—30% off—as one of the items in the HO HO Holiday sale!  The flyer is here if you haven’t had a chance to check it out!  You can contact me to place an order, or shop securely at your convenience through my online stamp shop.
