Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
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?
Challenges: They are so much fun! And usually... they are challenging! They help us grow. They help us try something new. They help us spread our wings. Challenges are not meant to pick on people with a different style from that of the hostess. They are not meant to stop your fun. Some challenges lend themselves to be rule free. However, some challenges naturally have rules. This challenge has rules... It is the nature of the challenge... Limited! Mistakes happen. We read something wrong.... No big deal. I just ask that you follow the spirit of the limited idea.
Please have fun with this challenge. It is meant to challenge you. If you are not inspired this week, perhaps the next challenge will be just what you needed. Please come back each week and check out what we're doing.
We are making sympathy cards. These can be difficult to make when you need them. So let's stock up on some cards today!
Keyword: LSC132 Theme: Sympathy Cards Main Image Stamps: Flowers Background Stamp: one (It can be a big background, a little background, or just another image turned into a background. But just use one.) Sentiment Stamp: one Cardstock & Ink: any colors ** NO Designer Paper NO Cuttlebug or similar tools Embellishments: Limit Depends on the Stamper **
** The Limit Depends on Each Stamper
Instead of listing items that can be used, I want you to apply the limited style to your cards. If you usually use 8 layers, try 4 layers for these challenges. If you usually use 10 brads, try 4 or 5. If you usually use 2 or 3 ribbons, try one. Get the idea? This idea seemed to really work last week, so let's try it again.
Please see the sample in the post #4.
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!

Cool challenge. I'll have to try it after I get home from work tomorrow.
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
Thanks Jen. What a great idea to make these at a time when (hopefully) we don't need them. I couldn't imagine trying to make a card, something I get great joy out of, when dealing with the NEED to make one. Like the other users, I'm sorry to hear you may require one of these soon. I'm looking forward to this challenge and love your cards - they are so pretty.
