keeping it simple part 2.

Hello everyone.

a little later than promised.. but that's because I made a card, took all the pictures then decided it wasn't good enough.  This was a really tough challenge for me, but it's always good to try different things!

It has however given me the opportunity to blow the dust off some old Christmas stamps.  The black stamped image and sentiment on the card below was from an old collection I almost gave away.  I think its a penny black set. 

To make this card, I stamped the background using inkadinkado stamp, and embossed using WOW sparkling snow embossing glitter.  I then stamped the penny black image onto white card before die cutting out and dusting with iridescent glitter..  finally I stamped a sentiment in the bottom corner, and repeated without reinking to get the faded look.

I would like to enter this into

Keep it simple - challenge #34 - all is white
Less is more - white on white

Thanks for taking the time to stop by - its appreciated, please leave me a message so I know you've been


PS. while I was playing with the stamps - I also made these... they could be the simplest design I've ever made and may well be the mass produced Christmas card to send to my family and friends this year. What do you think?
 This one was made with stamps from chloe
this was the penny black ones again with the same triple stamped sentiment technique but using a splash of red to give some colour.
