Holiday Fall To Layout

This week we are thrilled to be partnering with the fabulous designers at the Clean & Simple Stamping Blog who designed a great Fall to Layout for us to use for this week's Jingle Belles prompt. We are also asking that you also incorporate a clean & simple style with your design & then make sure you link-up your card here & at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog.

Here's the Sketch

And here's what we created this week:
of Clean & Simple Stamping

Lauren says, "i predict my card will be the least "clean & simple" one we see all week... but JB regulars will realize how very verrrrrrrry pared down this is for *ME*! downright minimalist, in fact, lol! :) i re-sized a vintage book image for my centerpiece, and kept my patterns as un-obtrusive as possible, with lots and lots of white to help with the "clean" feeling. since i am a remedial stamper, i applied my sentiment to a clear label and attached it to the card at the very end!"

Stef says, "To help keep my card clean & simple, I went with one stamp set and a monochromatic palette (can you ever go wrong with purple for the holidays?). I stamped the image from Hero Arts Merriest Christmas Wishes twice in warm violet chalk ink. I used the second image to punch out the spotlighted circles. I finished with tiny touches of glitter pen for the sky."

And since we're sharing the challenge spotlight this week with the Clean & Simple Stamping team, we though it would be fun to offer a little pile of goodies for one random participant.

The Prize:
Some clean green felt thickers, some simple (but adorable) christmas "flair", some holiday stamps... plus one or two other little goodies! :^)

So now it's your turn to show us what you can create with this Clean & Simple Stamping Sketch (which I realize is more of a challenge for some ... ahem Lauren ... than others).

Inlinkz will be open until 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, August 24th ... use keyword JB34 for our Flickr gallery & other galleries too.

Welcome to JB, Natasha! I think you will really enjoy your week with the Belles.

I really like the sketch and all three cards...Lauren, your card is very CAS (it's all relative, right?), but your lovely style is very much apparent.
