Clean and Simple Holiday Cards

Stamp by DRS Designs: Traveling Afar L673. Cardstock: Creative Memories green, GP110 white. Ink: Versamark. Accessories: silver EP, red satin ribbon.

This really couldn't be much more simple -- no coloring needed, just a bit of embossing! There's still time to join in 'Operation Write Home' which is being sponsored through the end of October by DRS Designs. Remember those traveling afar and earn your chance at great prizes!

DRS Designs is also sponsoring this week's challenge at Scrapmaster's Paradise. Create a card using this color combo, or similar colors to Really Rust, Crushed Curry, and Always Artichoke. It makes the perfect autumn theme, doesn't it?

Stamps by DRS Designs: Time for Sharing Greeting G993 , Tiny Leaf A1074, Open Plaid P631. Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, Really Rust, WCP. Ink: Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry, Really Rust, Versafine black. Accessories: black brads.

The layout is a rotated version of Unscripted sketches #27, home of elegant layouts. I misted the inked stamps and then misted the final stamped panel for a softer, more watercolor effect for the leaves.

Two chances for winning just by stamping -- what are you waiting for?
