TLC270 ~ Ramp It Up~ (04/26/10)
Hello Friends!

First and foremost, I would like to thank Vicki (vdutcher) for stepping up and helping out last week. Vicki did an incredible job. Although my aunt Marci is still not out of the woods, she is battling like a trooper. I appreciate all the prayers, too.

I am always amazed at the diversity of styles here on Splitcoaststampers. We are truly a melting pot of stampers. You can find scrap bookers, clean and simple card makers, embellishing card makers and the alterers. Now those words may not be in the dictionary, but you all know what I’m talking about!

Back when I was a part of the Dirty Dozen, we use to do a team challenge called More is More. The idea was to take a somewhat clean and simple card and add MORE to it to make it not so clean and simple.

~ Ramp it Up (or Down)! ~

So my challenge for you today is this…. If you are a clean and simple stamper, I want you to choose a card from your gallery (any card!) and make a MORE card. If you are an embellishing card maker (such as myself), then you are to take a card from your gallery (any card!) and make a clean and simple card based on that. Please note: You do not need to ‘remake’ the original, just use it as your guide.

So to break it down, you can either:
  • Pick a clean and simple card and make it a MORE card


  • Pick a More (embellished) card and make it a clean and simple card

When you upload your creation, please link to the original card in your gallery so we can see the changes you’ve made!

Here is my sample:

~ I AM ~

From my original seen here:

~ The Great I AM ~

Remember, when uploading to this challenge, please include KEYWORD TLC270 (no spaces)

You can find all the TLC270 cards HERE.

Go forth and create!

WOW, how unique! I can hardly wait to have time to play!

chrisations.ink 04-25-2010 09:11 PM

I need 36 hours in my day so that I can do the challenges again! This looks like so much fun, Holly! I must try to squeeze it in!!!! Or retire . . . tomorrow!

Cook22 04-25-2010 10:59 PM

Ditto what Christine said about time. This would be a REAL challenge for me, but it's another busy week - and right now I should be making a start on the housework.
Your More is More is gorgeous, Holly.

Kiwime 04-26-2010 12:39 AM

Ahhhhhh - would love to participate, but am at DD's, waiting the birth of DGD!! Awesome challenge :-)

Vicky Gould 04-26-2010 01:30 AM

Very interesting, Holly!

yellowrose46 04-26-2010 02:03 AM

This is a great challenge! I'll see if I can play later on in the day, after I have had a sleep. (worked a busy 12 hour night!)

markie's mom 04-26-2010 02:22 AM

So Holly...I went with LESS! Was that what I was supposed to do??? Not sure, you know? LOL

Here's today's submission

bensarmom 04-26-2010 02:24 AM

Thanks for another great challenge Holly. Have to go to work and the dentist first, then I can play! Glad to see you back.....prayers for your aunt.

thanks Holly!

dawnmercedes 04-26-2010 03:52 AM

haha..I can't decide if I'm a more stamper or a less stamper..>I think I go both ways...

sugarbug45 04-26-2010 04:19 AM

Looks like a fun challenge. Thanks for the ideas. There have been some great "redos" already!

MariLynn 04-26-2010 06:11 AM

WOW!~ This challenge sounds really hard. I'll have to think. I am such a more person. That less is so hard for me.

Wendybell 04-26-2010 07:27 AM

//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=233453I checked through my gallery I decided I definitely had to do a ramp down. This is an experiment, if this doesn't attach like I'm hoping it will the original card is on page 3 of my gallery "I'm Feeling Springy"

I love rubber 04-26-2010 06:01 PM

OK the experiment failed. The newest card is evident but I will have to do some research on what I did wrong. Holly thankyou so much for all the trouble you went to in an attempt to make me "link savvy".

lbirus 04-26-2010 07:50 PM

Well my two cards are a masculine and female version of each other. The original card was masculine:

Colorado Blessings

and a "ramped up" or should I say, "gussied up" version. My female friend is still not a real girly-girl but she certainly needed a fancier version of the original western themed card!

Long Time Friends

Which one do I like better? I just don't know!

StephStamps1982 04-27-2010 10:17 AM

My plain jane card (so to speak) - Ruby Rose Thank You

& My Ramped up version: Old Banana Ballet Roses

I changed the color scheme but overall, it's the same card, just ramped up a bit...hope this counts :)

Thanks for looking! Happy Stampin! God Bless!

Thank you for the challenge! Here's mine which I tried to embellish a bit more:
Chipboard Flower Fairies

beetle76 05-01-2010 04:44 AM

This was a fun challenge, I often wonder if I went back to a card what would I change, but rarely make one again.
I originally made a simple engagement card quite some time ago, using limited ink Perfect Plum and limited paper:

This time I did the same, but with Rich Razzleberry tones, I had lots of fun adding some extra techniques and ideas and am very pleased with what I ended up with!
Thanks for the challenge!
