I have a #simplestamping card to share with you today.  There is no fancy designer paper, just stamps, ink, paper and a punch.  Although I did add Stampin’ Blends for coloring.


Something I did not mention is that in addition to being a #simplestamping card, this is also a one stamp set card.  I cannot say it is a bundle however.  The stamp set is the Christmas Gleaming set that was a bundle last year with the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.  It all came back this year as one of Stampin’ Up!’s Returning Favorites sets.  Sadly it is not still a bundle so no 10% discount.   But I will say it is still definitely worth the price.

I used a bit of a different color combination for today’s card.  I used Old Olive, a forever favorite green, but paired it with Poppy Parade.  It is still a red, just a sort of orangy red!  I do love how the two look together though.

The holly is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using both of the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  I then stamped the ornament on the card, as well as on scrap paper.  I went ahead and colored both.  I always do that.  The ornament is stamped in Poppy Parade Ink and colored using the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  The crown of the ornament is colored with Poppy Parade blends.  The ornament is attched using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The finishing touches are the bow and the Merry Christmas.  I stamped the Merry Christmas and then used my Paper Snips to cut it down.  Since they are straight lines, it is not a difficult cut.  The bow is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Pack.  It is attached using a glue dot.

Thank you for stopping in on your Monday.  I hope you have a great week ahead and will come back tomorrow for another new project.
