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. said...

Wonderful cards ladies! This sketch made it easy to get creative :>)
