Simple Somethings

Happy Friday!!

We are celebrating our 6 month anniversary over on STAMP SOMETHING this week! It's been such a fun 6 months too and we hope the fun will continue for many more! We've enjoyed seeing all the wonderful talent and meeting all kinds of people from all over the world. We are very grateful for all of your support! And to celebrate we have an easy peasy challenge this week and a great blog candy offer! Head over and check it out!


The challenge theme is Simple Somethings, which to be honest, wasn't exactly simple for me. The challenge rules are to use only one layer of cardstock. You can embellish it, stamp on it, color it all up, anything you wish, but you may only use one layer of cardstock. That's why it was tough for me, I really like to layer!

I'm not totally happy with the way this turned out, but it is what it is, I guess. I do love this new stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Cardinal Christmas. I think it makes a beautiful holiday stamp.
My card is one layer of Natural Ivory paper, stamped and colored. Then I tore the edge, sponged on some red ink and added the taffeta ribbon and hat pin accents. The sentiment finishes off this card. Very simple!

Stop by STAMP SOMETHING and check out the design team samples and stamp something simple with us this week! Have a great weekend, happy stamping!! :)
