Just Stamping

I love using dies in cardmaking, but there's something really therapeutic about just stamping.  PTI's designer, Lizzie, must think so, too, because she stamped the most beautiful Christmas card on Day 2 of Release Week.  I just had to case it for this month's CAWU Challenge.  In fact, I made 2 cards.  
First is a sympathy card with Turning a New Leaf stamped in Mint Julep & Spring Rain. 
The sentiment from Through the Trees is stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black.  Hard to see, but there are tiny splatters of the green & blue inks.  The stitching is Lil' Inker & the mat is Spring Rain.  I'm also entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.

Next is a Christmas card with Snowflake Flurries stamped in Spring Rain, Lavender Moon & Sweet Blush. 
The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Blueberry Sky.  I tapped my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen over the panel which splattered it with little sparkly dots--so pretty!  The mat is Enchanted Evening die cut with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle.  I'm entering Christmas Card Challenges, HLS CAS Challenge, SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  5. You are so right about just stamping. I seldom just stamp anymore without die cuts, coloring, pattern paper or adding something else. Your cards are so pretty and refreshing. Gentle is the word that comes to me. I'm so glad you shared this.

  16. Your sympathy card is just perfect Greta. Soft, calming and beautifully stamped. Gorgeous snowflakes on the second card too. I'm not a good stamper and am always impressed with those who can do it perfectly. Lovely, lovely work.

  20. These are stunning! I am a color-holic who goes way too bright and bold sometimes, so I really admire someone who can make a POW with more subtle colors. You've mastered this! I really like the arrangement of the elements and how they are beautifully scattered across the side of the card. Really lovely work here and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
