Simple Holiday Cards

I'm so excited that last night I finished designing the holiday cards for my upcoming "Stamp-a-Stack". Since we will be making 4 of each of these cards, it was important to make sure that the cards were simple and quick. I discovered this after last year's Stamp-a-Stack when I incorporated too many fancy techniques.
I think this one is my favorite of the 4. I just love these colors. You can't really tell from the photo but I put dazzling diamonds on the swirls and star of the tree for some extra sparkle.
Stamps: Season of Joy
Papers: Wintergreen DS, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Very Vanilla
Inks: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds

This is another one using Season of Joy...I just love how I didn't
have to cut the rubber to assemble this set!

Stamps: Season of Joy
Papers: Cerise DS, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Inks: Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Red brad, Circle Punches

I'm not exactly sure why I picked the colors for this one, but they seem to work.

Stamps: Punch Pals
Papers: So Saffron, Whisper White, Real Red
Inks: Garden Green, Real Red, Summer Sun
Accessories: Wild Wasabi Double Stitched ribbon

And for this card I broke open my Simply Scrappin Kit "Winter Bright" to discover some lovely holiday paper!

Stamps: Punch Pals
Papers: Winter Bright Simply Scrappin, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Inks: Bashful Blue, Basic Black
