Hi everyone!  I wanted to take a moment to let you all know that today is the last day to place your Stampin' Up! holiday orders in time for Christmas delivery.  Also, tomorrow is the last day for Stampin' Up's! 'It's Good to be a Hostess' promotion. Email me at if you need more information about this promotion.

Well, now that Christmas is only 1 1/2 weeks away I'm sure you are finishing up your last minute decorating, wrapping, shopping, baking, and perhaps even you're like me you still haven't mailed your Christmas cards.  What!  You didn't even make your cards, yet!  Well, don't panic.  That's why I'm here....LOL  I have two clean & simple, super quick and easy holiday cards that I'm sure you can whip up in no time. 

My snow swirled card was a case of this card here that I came across on splitcoast stampers.  I eliminated a layer, did a little bit less stamping, and I changed the colors and since purple is my favorite color I decided to make a purple holiday card.  I did add 3 rhinestone gems in the center of the larger snowflakes, but you could even eliminate those if you wanted.  This is a super easy card, just cut your card stock and begin stamp away.

Stamps: Snow Swirled
Card Stock: White, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Silver
Supplies: Rhinestone Gems

This next card was also a case of a card I saw somewhere, but I can't seem to find it again to link it here for you.  If I find it I will come back and update this post. 

Now, this card is a bit more work, but I'm sure you could whip up 10 or so of these in less than 1/2 hour.   Simply stamp your tree image, stamp the sentiment, add your glitter and then sponge your moon.  (Note- the tree and the 'season's greetings' sentiment are both on one stamp, but when I mounted this stamp I cut the sentiment apart from the tree and I mounted it on another wood block.  I did this so that it would be quicker and easier for me to work with this stamp). 

Sponging your moon is an easy technique.  Here is a great video that shows you how to do reverse masking and I did mine the same way as Holly did in this video.

Stamps: Scenic Season
Card Stock: White, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy, Real Red
Supplies: Sponge, Circle Punch, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
Technique:  Sponging, Reverse Masking

That's about it for today!  Remember to come back on Friday morning.  I will be posting the winner of the Simply Score Too giveaway!  Have a great day!
