Default LSC242 Starting a Card half done...(10/16/09)

LSC242

Want to get a jump start on your card making endeavors...

Then start with a Preprinted Note Card!

It’s time to dig through your desk drawers to find those preprinted note cards that you bought. Maybe you bought them before you became a stamper. Maybe you bought them when you realized sometimes you don’t have time to stamp and needed a back up solution. Or…did you find them on clearance?

**Your base must be a preprinted note card.
** Anything on top should be kept CAS….clean and simple!

Decorate Your Soul Example

Example: Halloween Simplicity

Keyword: LSC242

LSC242 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!

Hmmm - have to see if I can find something to use for this. I don't honestly know if I do have any! It might be a case of downloading some printable stationery and using that as my start point - would that count?

What an awesome challenge, Dawn! I have lots of notecards that I bought just for this purpose. The one I used is from Laura Ashley, and I LOVE how it turned out!

I'm off today and am happy to be able to play in the challenge. Not much creativity in this project as all I did was paper piece flowers and sponge a little ink on a ribbon to age.

Well, this could require some digging... and digging... and digging...... I haven't bought ANY of these since I started stamping 10 years ago. I wonder if I can even find any.

Thanks for this challenge. I am always buying packs and boxes of cards - if nothing else, for inexpensive envelopes, or to use as a base for cards for the troops. Only problem is, I seldom get around to using them!

thank you for giving the opportunity to use some of the cards I bought on sale, then have wondered for the last two years why I did that.
