Hello everyone!! Are you ready to start your week with a fun challenge?? As I was stamping away this week, a silly thought popped into my head....what would happen if all my/your stamps disappeared....GASP!!! What would we do??? Well....let's find out!! Sooo, the challenge today is to create a card or project without stamps or digies! Here are a few suggestions:
1. Use patterned paper images: cut them out or use diecuts, punches, etc.
2. Use stickers, rub-ons, pictures, or chipboard
3. Use fabric pieces, flowers, tickets, food labels, or antique post cards
4. Use pictures from newspapers, magazines, or catalogs
5. Use ribbons, puzzle pieces, or photos
6. Make hand written sentiments or use letter stickers, letter buttons, stencils, labeling machine, cut out words from a newspaper or magazine.
7. The sky is the limit...have fun!!!
Thanks for bringing us this awesome challenge! Yesterday, I looked at my BIG container full of beautiful 3-D stickers and rub-ons and thought to myself 'I've got to go through these (again) and figure out ways to use some of them.' Coincidentally, today, the very next day, you bring us the NO STAMPING ALLOWED challenge! How cool is that? Everybody have FUN and I'll see you in the gallery!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
For today's Try A New Technique Challenge- No Stamping- I was given this jungle fabric from my friend's family quilting project today, what great timing! I added a lime green attendance slip, and a paper bag- all decorated with some ribbon from my friends. The grass is from a recycled herb set. Enjoy your day
I'm on a roll, here is another one. I originally said the paper on both cards was October Afternoon......ooops, it is actually Cosmo Cricket. I have edited the text, sorry about this. Here is my second card. Thanks for looking.
This challenge brought me the opportunity to use some neglected stickers, rub-ons, dies, and cardstock/ paper! And ... I got six fall cards made in the process! Great combo, don't you think? Heehee! Here are the cards I made on Mon. afternoon. THANKS for looking! I appreciate your time and value your comments! Note that I'll be in the gallery again tonight to look-see and comment!
