Simple Stamping with Festive Post | #MCC27
Happy Tuesday everyone. Have you been thinking about creating projects for the Mystery CASE this week. Remember, we are working on simple cards using background stamping as our technique of choice. Of course, you are welcome to craft your cards any way you wish, they are your cards after all. And I am happy to share them on the blog for you as well.
Okay, so yesterday we CASED the Dove of Hope sample provided by Stampin’ Up! Today we are going to use their Simple Stamping with Festive Post project for our inspiration. Let’s take a look.
Festive Post Inspiration Project
All these images come from the Festive Post stamp set. You can see here they have a couple of simple layers. They have created a fun background by stamping multiple images on a layer, and tone-on-tone stamping. The car image is stamped in Pool Party ink on Pool Party Cardstock to create a subtle background. This card features three colors of ink, and the fun Wonderful Gems glittery dots.
So, just like yesterday I have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video to share, with my take on this card layout. So enjoy watching while I share my own ideas.

So, not too difficult? Some background stamping, color on color or use your Versa-mark Ink for a watermark print. Let one stamp set do all the work for you, as long as you have images and sentiments. Here I used the Merry Moose stamp set from the Holiday collection. But don’t forget you can get this as a bundle with a really cool Moose Punch!
