Stamp Simply - In no time flat!

Hi all! TGIF! Time for another Stamp Simply challenge! This one is all about showing workers at the post office love! You know we are all guilty of sending those lumpy bumpy and beautiful cards through the mail. We want them hand cancelled and we are pretty fussy about that! Well, this week's challenge is about FLAT cards! Cards you can mail without extra postage!

You can check out all the details of ssnotime58 over at Sharon's place!

Keep in mind - flat doesn't mean no layers. It just can't be lumpy and bumpy in the envie. It's a perfect kind of card for the holidays-- so show us what you've got!

Here's my card...


For my card, I chose to use some Magenta stickers I have been hanging on to for a while! You can see underneath my card, I have the sticker sheet. You'll notice that they are solid gold. I ended up coloring the flower on the sticker with purple and green Sharpies. I layered it up with gold mirror card stock. The background on the main mat of the card was done with Raisin Adirondack ink and the background stamp in the Bird And Vine set by Flourishes. I thought it matched my sticker perfectly! It almost looks as though they were made for eachother! Add some Martha Stewart ribbon and a hot fix gold nail head (Kandi Corp.) and you are done! As Jennifer Buck would say -- Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!! :-)

Here's a closeup so you can see how the sticker was colored...

Well, my mom arrived safely. Thanks to all who said "give her a hug for me!" She blushed and said something equivalent to, "Aw shucks!" We both wish you were all here too! You can bet there will be a stamp fest brewing here in my neck of the woods! Stay tuned for the details! ;-)
