Thrifty Thursday- Holiday Lineup Cards

Today I have decided to show you three different cards made with the same stamp set and using the same basic layout.  I love this set because all of the images are the same size so it makes it really easy to use the same layout and just change the colors. 

t-elves-cardThe basic card is really simple and cost less than a dollar for the paper, ribbon and glue.  I also love the 3×6 cards because they actually cost less to make than a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card.  This stamp set works really well with the 3×6 design.  Someone told be that this stamp set has to grown on you, but I loved if from the first minute I saw it.  It’s the Holiday Lineup #111648 for $21.95. 

t-snowman-cardI’ve used Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Not Quite Navy for my base colors, which is also economical because they are all earth elements so you can by the 12×12 individually or by the family pack.  Then I’ve added the fun in-colors to two of them with ribbon and background paper.  The other I used the fun ribbon from the mini catalog.  I’ve used StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the image.  Then I used a blender pen and the ink pads to color the images.  I really like how they turned out. 

t-reindeer-cardMy down-line actually got to make the reindeer card at our Christmas Party.  I hope you liked this and be watching next week for another cost saving project.

  1. Candice, I love these cards. I agree with this set having to grow on you, when I first saw it all I thought was too much coloring, but I have since changed my mind and actually enjoy coloring these images. Now I just need to get the stamp set. 🙂
