TLC36 -- Keeping it Simple
 
This week's challenge is SIMPLE WOWs. First off, a "WOW" card is just one that people say WOW when they see it. By "Simple", I mean one that is just that....simple. Simple to create (like a first-time stamper could recreate). Simple in its design or layout. Simple in that there really isn't much going on, but still is so cool, you want to make it yourself. Simple in that you could CASE it in about 5 minutes. Sometimes I think of this type of card as "elegant simplicity", which sometimes can be harder than the most complicated technique!

Here are a few examples:

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 STAMPIN' !!

DANG! You guys just ROCKed the last challenge "Lovin' Linen"! I was amazed and enthralled by all the awesome, eye-popping Faux Linen cards! Excellent work! :) :) :)

Okay Beth, umm... now this is a challenge. This type of card is sooo hard for me to do. I'm up for the challenge. I'll get right on it!

Ditto for me! But I'll do my best!

JusColorado 10-31-2005 09:36 AM

Oohhh....this is a challenge. I think I can come up with something, though. Thanks for the great idea, Beth.

WOW Jeanne, I love your card!!! TFS!

Julia S 10-31-2005 10:30 AM

What a fun but difficult challenge!:) I always tend to make things more complicated than they need to be.:) I made this card a few weeks ago for a LSChallenge and never uploaded it....too simple I thought. So here it is....hope to play later.

Mine is really simple!!! Just stamps and two layers...

I just looked and see that the glossy metalic paper doesn't show up. In real life it looks like a sheet of copper.

Here's mine! http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...172687&cat=604

This was a real challenge. I'm going to try again, though!

And another... trust me this is an easy one (dare you to try it!!!)

To complicated!
 
Well this is hard but very, very, interesting! I have to try it.
I'll be back with something "simple"

I saw this after coming home from work, made and posted them, and still have time to get ready for trick-or-treating! (Of coarse, it was Spaghettios for dinner. But, hey, it works on a night like this!) They are super quick and simple. Hope you like them.

Rox71 10-31-2005 02:25 PM

I have one done, it's okay but I think I'd prefer more layers, maybe some embossing, a charm or layer the greeting...but I didn't I kept it very simple.

Here's the card

Jeanne S 10-31-2005 02:43 PM

Last one for now... gotta get ready for the Trick or Treaters.

Thumping
 
This was a fun challenge Beth. I decided to pull way back and only use one layer of card stock and to use only one stamp and two colors of ink. I used a classic pad for one color and thumped the second color on with a marker. I enjoyed this.

It's not letting me upload
 
This is my first challenge!! :smile:

I am trying to upload my image and it gives me a message that I can't upload anything bigger than 640 x 480. My file is 480 x 610 and it says it's over the size. I am not sure how to change it since it's portrait orientation and that's the correct size. Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong?

Thanks,

Vivian

Are you sure your on pixels when you see the numbers? My Adobe has pixels and inches and I think even one other choice. So make sure you have it set to pixels and if you have a real problem after that you can always email it to me and I'll resize it for you and email it back. No big deal I've done it before and it only takes a few minutes.

Vivitrigue 10-31-2005 04:44 PM

Thank you Rox
 
I am going to email it to your love letters aol address because it does not let me attach to your SCS address.

I really appreciate your help. Once it works, please let me know what you did so that I do it right next time.

Thanks again,

Vivian

kittie747 10-31-2005 04:51 PM

No they don't go directly to me and they won't know what it's for. I'll PM you with my email, Okay!

Ellibelle 10-31-2005 05:29 PM

Here's another simple card I just finished. http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...72781&cat=3349

Two more. This is good practice for me!

I just love what everyone has posted already!!! Here is one I did some time ago, the funny part is in my description I start out with " Simply torn..."

stampinamy16 10-31-2005 06:09 PM

Yeah, I feel like I haven't done a challenge in weeks! I miss it! I think I needed a little break but I'm back!

http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...172785&cat=532

I think I have to place an order just to get full size AA & PP pads and more paper! I am addicted to this color combo! (I like it w/ silver EP too, but I was trying to KISS!)

stampinamy16 10-31-2005 06:12 PM

OK, here's another one I did tonight - I think it fits the KISS (you could do it w/out the Pearl EP, but I am an EP addict too!)

Here's a Christmas card for my middle school stamping intramural. I'll have to use the Keeping it Simple method for some more, but it will wait until tomorrow. I'm off to bed. Hope you like it.

My 11-year-old daughter made these cards over the weekend, and she so badly wanted me to upload them to her gallery. I can't do that YET, but I thought this was a perfect chance to show what she did.

These were all based on beautiful cards I had saved from SCS in the past, and I apologize for not being able to credit the original designer, but they definitely have a WOW-factor about them, and my DD's quirky sense of style adds a little whimsy to them, too!

I hope you enjoy seeing them, and I REALLY hope to be able to start uploading the normal way again soon!

kittie747 10-31-2005 06:56 PM

Here's one more. Fun Challenge Beth!

HI EVERYONE--ignore this link and look below for a new link to my card. I did something wrong and my last one was deleted!! Thanks for looking-Kathy

Jami 10-31-2005 10:16 PM

Becky your DD's cards are really outstanding!

Jami 10-31-2005 10:19 PM

Beth this is the hardest technique challenge ever!!! I don't think I've ever made a card that qualifies as both simple and wow. I've seen some, but never done one. Simple is hard IMO. Not sure I'll have time to play this week - lots going on, but I'll definitely be watching. Maybe I'll have a chance to come up with something.

stampkat 11-01-2005 03:36 AM

Here is a link to my card for this challenge. I had a problem with my last upload and the photo got deleted so please check this one out. This looks much more sparkly IRL.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

I did a second card using my 15 yr old granddaughter's idea with a twist by adding the holly. The last two times she's wanted to do a card for a friend it's been this crazy dollar stamp cow.

Here's the card
