Christine Okken — Swanky Stamper for November
October's TCP Tuesday Challenge was a doozie! The challenge was an Anti-Embellishment challenge. That meant no twine, no buttons and no bling. That also meant that you were to limit your embellishments to no more than 2. The focus of the challenge was to be on your paper and stamps.
It was a difficult challenge, but Christine Okken's card featuring one of our discontinued stamps just shined! She used the <a title="Toppers CutUps" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/toppers-cutups/">Toppers CutUps</a> for the pretty border and created a paper bow for an embellishment! Just stunning!

And, there were other fabulous entries in this difficult challenge. Like Tammy Herschberger's fun washi card using the <a title="The Mustache Set" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/the-mustache-set/">Mustache Set</a> and <a title="Mustaches CutUps" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/mustaches-cutups/">Mustaches CutUps</a>. What a bright and happy card using NO embellishments.

Last month's Swanky Stamper, Tricia Traxler, also created a wonderful card! She really focused on the <a title="Bearing Flowers" href="http://thecatspajamasrs.com/TCP/product/bearing-flowers/">Bearing Flowers</a> Stamp Set and paper. Her only two embellishments were the two big brads.

Here is the inside of her card! WHEEE! This is definitely one that I will have to case. Maybe for this next challenge! Come back tomorrow and for the NEW November TCP Tuesday Challenge!
