BLOG HOP for Creative Clear Stamps - 5 winners!!!!!

as promised...my cards for the hop are "Quick and Easy" aka QnE  lol....here we go!


sponged sentiment using Memento's Ruhbarb...ran cranberry tart cs from GinaK through cuttlebug, nestie cut and embossed sentiment, added ribbon....voila!!!  done...see QnE


cut All Spruced Up and Asparagus cs from Gina K, SU dp and used scrap of All Spruced Up and Basic Grey....assembled card onto All Spruced Up cs...then stamped tree from the Let It Snow set by Creative Clear Stamps, outlined it with SU markers, stamped sentiment onto white cs, used nestie to cut/emboss and then sponged SU Garden Green. Made a bow out of SU green grosgrain....used paper piercer to punch two little holes to run gold cord through and scotch taped the ends on the back...then added bow...done...few more steps...but still another QnE!!


cut cranberry and night of navy, ran cranberry through cuttlebug, highlighted some swirls with grey SU marker. have a postage stamp that I used (BUT you dont need the postage stamp) and inked the sentiment, did lighter background in caramel with a cute swirl stamp I have (matched the cuttlebug swirl) and stamped it again with caramel inked square stamp...cut them out and matted onto navy. Stamped the swirl stamp again on piece of scrap white in SU rose red and outlined with SU grey marker.  Assembled..and then used adhesive mini silver nail heads and randomly placed on card....again, didnt need the postage stamp - would have looked just as nice if two blocks had only been the rectangles...it's the decorative scissors that help!
anyway, took me almost as long to type this out as it did to make the card!!!!
another QnE one!!

Tip:    for those of you starting out, invest in good decorative and good cutting scissors...when I started I bought the super cheap ones but they stopped giving a clear cut very quickly...recommend Fiskars decorative scissors and CutterBee for everything else! just my opinion :)
