Default F4A379 - "Look Ma!! NO Stamps!!"

F4A379 - "Look Ma!! NO Stamps!!"

My daughter's wedding was two weeks ago. To be honest, I have had SO much cleaning up to do since then ... and I have done NONE of it!! The wedding pretty much WIPED ME OUT!

With that said, I went to go make a card for today's challenge and was met with a pile of stuff and a BIG FAT MESS!! So, instead of cleaning up the mess, I just decided to use some of the things that were ALREADY out!! Hence, the card for today's challenge (which was made with things I used to make favors for the wedding reception ... I did change up the colors, though!)

So ... the challenge today is to create something and use NO stamps (if you can!!)!! I have so much ribbon, so many die cuts, TONS of embellishments, embossing folders and the like .. I am SURE most of you do as well!!! Show me what you can do!!

My Sample:

Look Ma! No Stamps

Keyword: F4A379

F4A379 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Oh my goodness, you were reading my mind Wendy! I, too, have had way too much on my plate and zero time in my craft room. I was stumbling along making a thank you card for a DF when I spotted this challenge....I was able to finish the card, thanks to your suggestion, by ditching the sentiment stamp and instead using a diecut, custom watercolored sentiment to finish the card! So happy I did! Here it is:
F4A379 Days of Spring - thanks! by Boss - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Thanks for the inspiration! I now have a card to send to my friend, to thank her for gifting me this cute spring scene die.
