You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Recently, I went back and looked at the very first limited supply challenges. It all started with very specific lists of stamps, products, and accessories. I thought it would be fun to do that again. Not every week… but once in awhile. This first week, I’ll go easy on you and choose flowers as the main theme since they are so popular. If flowers are not your thing…. Please see the bonus challenge. But I hope you’ll step out of your comfort zone and try this!
You don’t have to use everything on the list; just not more. If it’s not on the list (including techniques), it’s not on the list. Have fun with it!
Follow the List #1
Up to 2 backgrounds (stamps)
Up to 2 colors/kinds of ribbons
Sponging, tearing, distressing
Punches – to make tabs only
Ink: soft subtles, rich regals,neutrals (brown is a neutral) – or similar if not SU
Paper: solid color cardstock – soft subtles, rich regals, neutrals
Brads - I forgot to put them on the list. Sorry. So, if you used them, it's all good.
Stuck on a layout? Try one of the weekly sketch challenges. They are winners!
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!

Reason: Clarification on backgrounds, Brads
This sounds like a great challenge Jen! I like the challenge NOT to use patterned paper. I am finally done with all my projects this week, so tomorrow I can get to the challenge and combine it with Wednesday's sketch challenge. Off to bed to dream of background stamps...
KAREN Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:12-13
