Prize #4 - a set of Stampin' Up! Notecards and Envelopes for you to decorate. Used in today's project -
Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes
So for today's project I took on a recent challenge from Stampin' Up! for Simple Stamping - cards and projects using only ink, stamps and paper - that even a beginner could do. #simplestamping  This project does just that a quick and easy note card to send out for the Holidays! 
Here is a close up view.  I used the beautiful "First Frost" set from the Holiday Catalog.  I wasn't even sure I wanted this set, but once I got it - it quickly became a favorite.  And I am sooooo happy to see it on the carry-over list! So only two inks were used - Old Olive and Poppy Parade.  Nothing is popped up or cut out or layered.  Just sweet, simple stamping.
But I also wanted to show you a little stepped up version.  Not a lot - just a little :)  On the samples below - I stamped the large rose once again on a piece of scrap paper and then popped it up over the other one with dimensionals.  Only took a couple minutes, a scissors and dimensionals to achieve this version. 
You can see a bit more here what I am talking about - and I love how it turned out.  I think if you changed the sentiment these would be beautiful Thank You notes for Christmas gifts, also.
