Addicted to Stamps and More: Any Occasion

Welcome back to Addicted to Stamps and More, where our "Any Occasion" challenge is ready to go! Right now, if I have a choice, I am all about the Christmas cards. And yet... I was a bit at a loss for what I wanted to do. So I decided to try out a Sheetload of Cards, by Call Me Crafty Al! Here are my two favourites: 

If you're not familiar with Sheetload of Cards videos, each month Alicia (Crafty Al) designs a card sketch using patterned paper with a minimum of waste. For the November sketch that I used, she takes six sheets of patterned paper to create six cards. For the two above, I decided to add a stamped image to each one, as well as the stamped sentiment - the extra stamping might be why they're my favourites! ;) Making these made me think back to the early days of the pandemic, when I thought the SHORT TIME of lockdown would be a perfect time to use up lots of patterned paper on my cards! And here we are, so many months later, and still so much paper. ;) Here's a look at all six cards: 

Regardless of the occasion, we would love to see your cards in the ATSM gallery! Visit the blog for lots more inspiration from my teammates. 

Supplies: Neenah white, Stampin' Up real red, Memory Box stormy blues & American Crafts white glitter cardstock, Echo Park Keeping Cozy patterned paper, Catherine Pooler Nostalgic Season, Studio Katia Happy Snowmen & Taylored Expressions Simple Strips - Christmas stamps & dies, Hero Arts Snow Much Joy stamp, Versamark, Versafine onyx black, Concord & 9th dove & Catherine Pooler rockin' red & juniper mist ink, Wow clear gloss & opaque white embossing powder,  Copic markers, Cat's Pyjamas snowflake & MFT wonky stitched rectangle dies, Studio Katia & Hero Arts gems, Glossy Accents, frosted lace Stickles

What an awesome idea and no two cards are alike fabulous job. The papers you used are perfect and the images/diecuts are the focal point of each card. Super cute cards.

What a great idea, Lindsey and you have produced 6 beauties for the Christmas stash! So clever because even though they all use the same sketch - each one looks so different.
Take care
