Merry & Bright by Stephanie Gold

Hey everyone! Stephanie here again and I am thrilled to be back for another guest post using this incredible stamp set: Oh Christmas.
I have a more traditional Christmas card for you today that still keeps in with my simple aesthetic.
Using a candy cane-like pattern paper, I created a background that would accent my sentiment… the large and festive “merry & bright” – I love this sentiment so much!! It’s super versatile too.. I’m already picturing it in my December album on journaling cards and on tags that I make each year for family gifts. 🙂
My background is kraft paper ran through with a cover plate die and topped with a doily for a feminine and soft touch. How fun would it be to put this card into an envelope stamped with those green leaves from this set?? I think I will have to go back and try that out haha.
Thank you all so much for having me back!!! Enjoy your awesome Christmas stamp sets and tag me in your photos on IG!! @goldensimplicity_sg I would LOVE to see what you create!! Much love!
Xo, Stephanie

Tuesday Ideas: Color Blocked Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa and I’m back with another clean and simple holiday card idea for you!  Once again, I’m using the beautiful Oh Christmas stamp set.


I decided to use one of the fantastic sentiments in the set as the focal point and this is what transpired.  I used two different bright colors to create a color block beneath the main panel.  These were mounted on a piece of black cardstock for a little more contrast.  The assembled piece was popped up with foam dots for dimension.  You could use any two colors you wanted and even vary colors from card to card for a wide variety of holiday cards!  So simple and so fun!

October is here and the countdown continues.  I hope you’re getting a head start on your card making and crafting!

Until next time, happy stamping!
