I’m trying to take us back to our stamping “roots” with the challenge this week. We all started with the basics – stamps, paper and ink, so that is where I would like everyone to return.
Today’s challenge is to do a FALL-themed card with stamps, paper and ink . . . and NO embellishments! That’s right . . . no buttons, no ribbon, no brads, no eyelets, no stickers, no rub-ons, no chipboard, no primas . . . YIKES!!
So, you ask, “What CAN I use?” I didn’t want to leave you TOTALLY bereft of the ability to use other things, so you can use diecuts (which include punches) and/or embossing folders. Just keep in mind that the focal point of your creation should be something STAMPED and not something diecut (you CAN use a Nestabilities die, for example, but there must be something stamped in center of it!)
And make sure to use a Fall theme on your card – Halloween or lovely fall leaves or foliage or something of that sort.

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!

Thanks for the early post - this should be a nice quick easy card when I get back from work. But not a chance of combining it with the WT challenge which I missed yesterday, sigh. I think I know exactly the stamp to use .
Thanks for making this challenge easy for me...I have been busy visiting with my mom this week from San Diego. I have no time to stamp, but I had a few minutes this morning before I got my kids up for school.
