This Limited Supply Challenge is a repeat of stampinspud's January VSN L challenge. It was second to last and I think people were too tired to participate. Let's give it another chance because it's a perfect fit for those with limited supplies.
Do It Yourself stamps - What's cheaper than making your own stamps from rubber scraps? I find it easier to make solid shapes, but any image or background you create is welcomed.
Stamps: handmade stamps, additional stamps are optional

I'd never heard of the VSN until that afternoon when I seen all that was going on!! So I missed it totally, but I enjoyed looking at everyone's creative ideas!! I'm hoping I can join in on the one in Feb. now that I know what it is!! So this is nice, though...no pressure to get this done in 40 minutes!! I'll give it a try and see what I can do.
Wanted to try a Pop-Up card so I used my DIY stamp on it. Love the directions for these! Can we give Beate a hand for her directions with these cards?! She makes them so easy to understand! Anyway, the second picture shows what I used for my "stamp". I only used markers for the rest.
Here is my upload for today's challenge. Many thanks to lacyquilter for suggesting fun foam otherwise I don't know what I would have used since my rubber scraps ususally end up in the garbage pretty quickly. Guess I will have to start saving them.
I haven't stamped for tttwwwooo, that's 2 weeks.....So I decided to try and hit as many of this week's challenges in one card as I could. I not only wanted this to be a DIY card, but also, masculine, verticle, etc.
I feel much better now.
Thanks for the challenge,

Okay, I got a fast and easy one done tonight so I'm catching up on challenges, only three to go!
My card description will explain the stamps. I really wanted to use stars so it would also work for boys but I have a LIMITED SUPPLY in brads!
Oh, and Jen, now I know why I got a couple comments on that card you used for an example. That one is a fast card too!
Sorry ladies that I haven't been on to see all your creations. I've been suffering from a severe migraine. I'm starting to regain feeling on the right side of my body. I promise to come back and comment on your fabulous work when DH isn't shooing me back in bed. Til then, thanks for playing.

This challenge really made me have to think. I really wanted to put a background on the celery but thought it might over do it some. I made the Martini glasses from a triangle dice that that My Husband had sitting on his desk. Then I used a pencil eraser for the olive and drew in the red and the black part of the glass. I also used the corner part of the dice to make the star background. Lastly I used my stampin mist lid for the circles on the darker blue background.
Here's a card I made by cutting foam with a Sizzix die cut and mounting it to a acrylic block with double stick tape. Upper background imitates the dot background stamps. I used a embossing stylus and Ranger resist ink to dot the upper portion of card.
