{Spotlight Project} CAS Cards With Deepti


Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to my Spotlight feature. For this Spotlight post I decided to make a couple of clean and simple cards. Unique thing about these is that I have used a stamp for a purpose different from what it is intended. Let me show you...

NEW! Quick Card Kits (Or How I Went from Zero to 14 Christmas Cards in 2.5 Hours!)

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! A funny thing happened to me the other day -- I was able to make 14 Christmas cards in 2.5 hours! For the seasoned card makers among you, that number may not be a lot but it is to me. I didn't have any Christmas card made at all yet...and I suspect I wouldn't have been able to make any this year if I hadn't been desperate enough to come up with a product that will let me make Christmas cards fast.

Between running STAMPlorations and taking care of my 2 super-active girls, believe me...I barely have time to sit down and create cards. And those times when I think I have 15 minutes of free time, I often find myself having to choose between a taking a quick shower, having a meal, or doing something I've put off doing for months (like fold clothes!).

And then a week ago, I asked myself, "What if I had some ready-made card fronts and all I had to do is stamp to finish them up?" I had the first 2 sets of card fronts designed within a few hours and then sent off to the printer by Saturday night. By Thursday, they were delivered and oh boy, I couldn't stop running my hands on the smooth and super thick (120# or 315 gsm, baby!) card stock the card fronts are printed on.

November Challenges Inspiration - Have You Played Yet?

 

Hello, challenge fans! Have you already played along with our November challenges? The link-ups are bursting with inspiration, but there is always room for more, so don't be shy, whether you are a first-timer or one of our regulars. If you are planning to play along but haven't had time to do so yet, you still have two weeks to join in the fun! The ladies from the design team are back with more inspiration to help you get creative if you feel your mojo needs a kick-start. I hope you find some time and inspiration to play along with us this month!

If you're new to our blog, please take a moment to become familiar with the challenge guidelines -- we would hate for anyone to be voted by the team as a winner or be randomly chosen as a top pick and then not qualify for the prize because they didn't follow the rules.

{Spotlight Project} Christmas Trio With Deepti


Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to my Spotlight feature. I am always thinking about making simple, quick and easy to mail cards. Christmas is one of those times when I like to have simple and flat one layer cards that can easily be sent :) The Christmas Typografia stamps come in handy for these kind of cards and on top of that I just love these stamps :) I think they are a must have! Let me show you what I made...
