Looking for simple & easy for the holidays and beyond?

Look no further! For today’s On the CASE, I dove into a stamp set who’s samples caught my eye on my first flip through the Holiday Catalog. Did you know that the Holiday Catalog has more than just holiday-themed stamps? It’s true, this set does have a seasonal greeting, but it’s also good all year ’round with some lovely well wishes. Say hello to Wishing You Well!

I love that this set is one of the new “DistINKtive” stamps, giving the images instant depth and a 3-D feel with just one color ink. I also love that the samples are so simple, it would literally take less than five minutes to make a card if you needed to send off a sympathy or get-well card ASAP. OR, if you want to get piles of holiday cards done in a weekend, or a day, this design is for you!

What’s easier, is that you can order everything you need for these cards with just ONE item number – 150096. This is fabulous – especially if you’re just getting started with stamping and need some basic supplies, like an acrylic block and ink pads.

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

I’m doing a 2-for-1 today! These cards were so simple, you’re getting the step-by-step for both of them!

JUST A NOTE CARD:

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Stamp the bouquet image in Granny Apple Green. Use your Stamparatus if you want. This will make it easier if you’re going to do multiples.
  3. Stamp the flower image twice (without re-inking so some flowers are lighter) in Tranquil Tide.
  4. Stamp the sentiment in Tranquil Tide.
  5. Add Gold Metallic Thread loops behind the sentiment. Adhere with glue dots.
  6. Trim the sentiment to length and adhere to stamped panel with glue dots for just a little pop-up.
  7. Adhere the finished panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

SEASON’S GREETINGS CARD

  1. Score your card base at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. You can set up the images on your Stamparatus if you plan on doing multiples. Use both sides of one plate, and even use the top and side of the base so you can fit all of the stamps on one plate!
  3. Stamp the wreath in Granny Apple Green.
  4. Stamp the Bow and sentiment in Tranquil Tide.
  5. Add gold metallic thread swirls behind the stamped panel.
  6. Adhere the finished panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?
