Limited Supplies Challenge



AACCCKKKK!! Please don't limit my supplies! Today's challenge from Our Creative Corner is to make a project with no designer paper and a maximum of four layers. Sigh ... as much as I love my layers, I love a good challenge too! I went right to my "comfort stamp" (you know, like comfort food?), Live Your Dream. I find it soooo easy to work with. I also pulled out some of my new Stampin' Up In-Colors. In fact, the only new In-Color not on this card is Pink Pirouette. (Side note: I can't WAIT for my new catalogs to show up! I'm so ready for some new SU rubber!)

Check out the challenge details at Our Creative Corner, as well as samples from our guest designer Julee Tilman and all the OCC designers!

Be back later with my Sketch For You To Try sample. It's not quite finished yet.

Have a great weekend!



Stamps: Live Your Dream
Paper: Pacific Point textured card stock, Very Vanilla card stock
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Jet Black Staz-On

Beautiful card! I love the scored BG and gorgeous flowers! I was wondering how you use the Nestabilities for the scored framing on the white piece, without cutting the paper? I've not had mine very long and love the look it gives. Thanks so much! Sue (suen)
