Quick and Easy with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff


This week Lindsay has challenged us to do Christmas Cards that could be done in 10 minutes or less and mass produced.    Here is a preview of the set I used:  (on sale for half price right now... here)
 And here is what I came up with:

     
The set is called "Christmas Cupcake Wrappers"  but I decided to use the medallions on my cards.  You can find it at Lindsay's Shop Handmade Store.   There are a lot of secret sale items there and you get a free stamp with every $5 you spend as a thank you for waiting  for your order because there are no instant downloads, your order is emailed within a day. 




These really were quick and easy.  I started by printing off the images at 2-1/4" and very quickly watercoloring with watercolor pencils and an aquabrush.  I then cut and scored red CS for the card bases to make a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card.  I cut the white cs to 4 x 5-1/4 and embossed with cuttlebug snow flake folder.  I placed the ribbon midway down the embossed piece ... cut out the images and red nestie circles and adhered.  I made all 5 cards in less than 30 minutes including coloring.  How quick and easy is that?!?  


You can't get this set at mygrafico but there are many others and with instant downloads.  Go to Lindsay's blog and then to the rest of the DT to see their quick and easy projects.  And don't forget to pick up the freebie at Lindsay's.
