No Stampin' here!

 How the heck does one create a card with no stamping??? I pondered this for sometime thinking, it's just darn impossible and who thought of this theme anyways??

Well, like it or not, that is our theme this month at Christmas Craft Creations - No Stamping!

Talk about tunnel vision.  Once I got over my confusion I realized I have made many cards over the years without stamping, duh, what was I thinking?!

A couple of years ago I was involved in a weekend yoga retreat and my portion of the retreat was to teach card making.  Since it was close to Christmas I put together pre-packaged bags that included the supplies needed to make 2-3 cards each.  

I purchased a variety of Christmas papers from the local craft store, one side was patterned and the other side had journaling cards. The patterned papers are from the Merry & Bright Collection by Echo Park Paper and I used oval die cuts on one of the journaling cards and framed it with scallop ovals and the glitter star and tree were from my stash.

This is a great way to make fast & simple cards, especially if you want to make cards in bulk. I hope you join us for this fun and fast challenge and remember to add our challenge badge for your chance to win!


  1. Fantastic card! It is such fun. For me, the tricky part about ‘no stamping’ is the sentiment so your journal card is a perfect way to get around that. X

  2. Great job, Michelle! Beautiful sans-stamping card!!! I used to make almost all my cards without stamping. I used a lot of vintage images, 3D images, and the like. My oh my, how my style has changed! I enjoy the coloring of stamps, so that's pretty much how I roll anymore.
