Sometimes you just need a little inspiration.

I've been up against the wall this week along the order of deadlines and personal commitments. Sometimes, the creative side of my brain just shuts down with all the craziness swirling around up there. That's when I look for a little help from my stampin' buds.

One of the best things about going to Founders Circle was the 120 card swap that we participated in. Not only did I return with a LOT of new ideas, I got lots of good, Clean and Simple card ideas which was just what I needed for my starting point for my Clean and Simple Christmas Cards class last night.
TGFS! (Thank Goodness For Swaps!)

Here's one of the cards I created for class:

I used the Scentsational Season/Holiday Collection stamp/framelits Bundle and the Winter Memories stamp set; Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla cardstock; Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip ink; Blender Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Basic Rhinestones and Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here's my card with my inspiration piece:

The card on the right was designed by my bud Stella Mackay in California. I loved the simple message and warmth of it so it was perfect for my CAS class.

Since I turned my mug into a mug of Hot Cocoa, I changed the base cardstock to Sahara Sand to give more of a cozy feel.
TDS Tip!: To make that cocoa quick and easy, just ink the mug image with a Cherry Cobbler ink pad.
Use your Blender Pen to remove the Cherry Cobbler ink from the top of the stamp where the 'drink' shows.
Re-Color that area with your Chocolate Chip Marker, huff on it to re-wet then stamp.
Easy Peasy!

The stampers loved this sweet little card last night and I hope you do too.
