Everyone had so much fun with the first Limited Supply Challenge that I thought I'd post another one. I took the following list of supplies from another fairly new stamper friend of mine. Let's see what everyone can come up with from this list. Remember that you can use any combination of things on this list, but you cannot use anything not listed below. When you upload your card to the gallery please put LSC02 in the keyword section and post a link to this thread so we can all go look. No winner this time. Just for the fun of playing!
Stamp sets: Pocket Fun, Love Without End, Bold Butterfly (OR you may substitute the retired set Flutterbys), Love Ya Bunches
Cardstock: US White, Glossy White, Black, Bold Brights
Ink: Black, Versamark, Brilliant Blue, Green Galore, Lovely Lilac, Pink Passion, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, YoYo Yellow (either spots or full size pads)
Accessories: Bold Bright markers, Brayer, Daisy punch (either current or retired) Bold Bright eyelets, grosgrain ribbon any color, sponge, blender pen,
Any regular household item such as bleach, staples, etc.
This Challenge will run today (Friday) through Tuesday night. If you can't upload to the gallery you can still play at home. You don't need everything on the list to play. Just use what you have.
I wish...but not one of my stamp sets. Guess I'll have hope there will be a #3
Same here! I don't have any of those sets or those colours!!!
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this challenge though! Will be looking forward to #3!!!
Karen - how do you live without those colors???? I hardly ever make a card without oneof those colors! LOL!!!
I will get them eventually! Right now I'm into EE!!! (I'm not a demo, so it is taking me a while to collect!)
I certainly understand that. When I was a cutomer it took me a LONG time to get all the ink colors in full size pads. I would highly suggest getting a set of Bold Bright spots. Spots was all I used for the first several years I stamped. Very economical way of getting lots of colors.
Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. For those who don't have the stuff to play this time - you can PM me with suggestions for sets you'd like to see in future challenges.
Hope you get some good suggestions. I have lots of sets, so was pretty amazed that I didn't have any of these. I can't wait to see what people come up with...may have put them on my 'to buy" list. This site is so bad for my budget!
I was able to participate after all! I went to my demo's house and she let me borrow her BB cs and Love ya Bunches! It is a pretty simple card (I tend to work better in my own environment w/ my own stuff! )
Let me start by saying this really was a challange for me. Bold Brights are definately NOT my colors. And the only reason I even have 2 of these sets is because I have a stamp collecting addiction!
So... the first card, I decided to do Red, White and blue. You can't go wrong with those colors right?? The following card is proof that you can! http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...cat=500&page=1
The whole time I was working on this card I kept hearing the little fish in Finding Nemo say "I'm Obnoxious"
So onto card #2, I figured I could use these colors in my normal kinda shabby crinkly way... Nope, I'm sure it can be done, but apparantly I can't pull it off. This card is only marginally less offensive than the first: http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...cat=500&page=1
Then I realized that there is a color combo in those choices that I do like! As a general rule, I dislike anything pink, however I do like pink paired with brown or black... Quick check of the allowed colors... YAY, black is on the list!!! So finally, on the 4th card, I got one I really liked: http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...cat=500&page=1
Thanks for the challange, it really was!!

There's no 'I' in 'team'. But then there's no 'I' in 'useless smug colleague', either.
And there's four in 'platitude-quoting idiot'. Go figure.
I figured out why my first one is so boring. It needs to have some words added to it, like the Happy Birday. I won't put a phrase on until I am ready to use it. I like to leave phrases off and add Birthday or Thank You, ect. when I pick a card to use, that way I am not limited.
