LSC - BONUS Challenge 3
 
Here's your 3rd Bonus Limited Supply Challenge! These will continue to be posted randomly instead of on a schedule and will focus on a particular stamp set or single stamp.

I've been collecting Michael's $1 stamps for months, but I don't always get around to using them. So today, pull out those $1 stamps. They may be from Michael's or another store, but they are the cheapo stamps that we think we NEED to have! :mrgreen:

Please post new cards rather than cards already in your gallery. Thanks!

Please put LSCbonus3 in the keyword box when you upload!

Limit: $1 stamps
Stamps: $1 stamps, up to 2 additional stamps may be used
Paper and Ink: any
Embellishments: any

Today's regular challenge will be posted by our guest hostess, lacyquilter. Thanks Melody!

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!

oh goody Jen!!

Vervegirl 12-14-2006 09:12 PM

Cool bonus challenge, Jen! I keep buying these, but rarely use them. :)

jojot 12-14-2006 09:16 PM

will have to check out my latest cheap stamps........thanks for the surprise, Jen.......also looking forward to Melody's guest weekly challenge.......

rhondag 12-14-2006 09:18 PM

Shoot I'm never tempted by $ stamps....must be a sign to continue working on my original, boring chores :)

lacyquilter 12-14-2006 09:30 PM

Man, I have LOTS of these! And here I thought I wasn't going to have to stamp tomorrow. Jen, you must be feeling a bit better. I've been feeling lousy all week -- nasty head cold.

I'm feeling so-so as long as I take my pain meds. DH has set up my computer and stamping area so that I can use everything standing up. SCS and stamping are nice distractions to the pain.

I'm so sorry that you have been feeling poorly. Head colds are awful. :(

Knutsen24 12-14-2006 09:40 PM

Finally a reason to use all those stamps I was hoarding =]

dawnmercedes 12-14-2006 09:55 PM

Haha...those dollar stamps are the ones I used to let my kids buy when we were at Michaels...now...they just use any ole stamp...SU or nonSU. They are trained! And they feel special...b/c I act like I have to think about letting them use my SU sets! Hehe.

write2it 12-14-2006 10:40 PM

This is a first for me, I actually made a card right away! Dug through the box and pulled out this flower stamp - sticker still on it and it was .99!
Most of my cheap stamps are beach stuff. Wanted something else. THis is kinda a jump on Spring, I guess. Not a pink person, hence the other colors in there!

Ooh, I have plenty of $1 stamps! Those are the ones I can pick up w/o DH fussing too much! I can definitely do this challenge! Thanks, Jen, for thinking of us, even through your pain!

bambi64 12-15-2006 05:48 AM

Here is mine. Well not really mine! lol My 10 yr old made this as she has been stamping all week. I really like how she did it (all on her own too). I wanted to upload it just hadn't gotten around to it. It fits perfectly with today's challenge Beary Best Friends

I've probably created a monster as I started her own album in my gallery!

artlikefastfood 12-15-2006 12:25 PM

I have a set of 4 Christmas stamps I bought for $2. Do 50 cent stamps count for this challenge? Do I have time to make a card just for this challenge? Why am I talking to myself? Must get rest after Christmas...

auntynanny 12-15-2006 03:24 PM

Thanks Jen for the opportunity to play some more.

Great cards! I was in bed most of the day with a migraine. Then Brown came with new stamps. :mrgreen: It was great medicine. I'm back stamping again and hope to upload a bonus card and make comments on your wonderful cards later tonight. Thanks for playing!

auntynanny 12-16-2006 07:06 AM

I screwed up the original card so had to fill some blank space.

epiphany challenged me to a color challenge today since there are no challenges. I decided to do the dollar stamp challenge in combination with her challenge. Thanks to Michael's for the flower stamp.

Better late than never! The stamp is a clear $1 stamp from Joann's. The paper was 6 sheets for $.96. I don't want to spend money on a scalloped punch so I used my Coluzzle and trimmed with wavy scissors.
