Inspired Stamps Quick and Easy Christmas Card

Hello and welcome here!  Are you ready for Christmas yet?  If not, you're running out of time.  Today the Inspired Stamps DT are inspiring you with their choice of card today.  I decided to share a quick and easy card, especially for those who may have been invited somewhere at the last minute, because we all get our cards done early in the season, right?

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I used the 'Joy to the World' sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments stamp set.  I embossed a white piece of cardstock and matted it with blue, I then punched out 3 snowflakes and added a rhinestone to the middle.


Inside:
For the inside of my card I used the same Christmas Sentiments stamp set.  The boy is His Little Ones:  Winter Boy.

Recipe:  Inspired Stamps SS-Christmas Sentiments & His Little Ones:  Winter Boy, Bazzill Mono Admiral CS, CTMH White Daisy CS, CTMH Ink-Black & Moonstruck, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF, Martha Stewart Arctic Snowflake Punch, Foam Squares, Rhinestones.

Inspired Stamps Christmas Gift

Hello and welcome here!  It's time for some inspiration from Inspired Stamps.  This week the DT are sharing Gifts using Inspired Stamps stamps.  I'm sharing a Scripture Holder.

Giant Clothespin:  1" x 4.5"
I found the clothespins already painted in the Michaels $1.50 bins.  I then covered the front and back with patterned paper (great use for those scraps!).   I cut and embossed 2 cream cardstock pieces with Spellbinders Gold Labels 4, I stamped my verses on them and then glued them together, back to back.  You could make a few different ones and tie them with a bow so that the person who receives it can switch verses as needed.



Recipe:  Inspired Stamps SS-Matthew 4:4 & Romans 8:28, PP-My Mind's Eye Howdy Dowdy Lovely Wallpaper Paper & PP-My Mind's Eye Notable "Love This" Devoted Paper, Bazzil CS-cream, Spellbinders-Gold Labels 4, Joy Crafts Frame 6002/0258, Michaels Embellishment Felt Flowers, Michaels Giant Clothespin, CTMH Ink-Black, Black Rhinestones.

I make Christmas cards for a local Craft Sale and I try to keep them fairly clean and simple so that I can charge $1.  I thought I would share a couple of ones I made this year.  

I made these a couple of months ago and didn't keep track of exactly what paper I used because I didn't plan on posting them, but as time ran out this month I thought they would be perfect for the Anything Christmas challenge. (and save myself extra work in the process.)
