My friend Chris at Get Inspired with Chatterscene is having a Just Elements Challenge! The goal is to create something with NO die cutting machines! This is great because I have tons of stamps, stickers and ribbons waiting to be used!
Here is a card I made last night for this challenge:
The flower paper is from the DCWV Flower Shower stack. The green paper is from a package I got at Sam's Club a few years ago. The stamps are a CTMH set called Speckled Eggs. I hand-wrote the word Happy. I stamped with pigment ink and used an iridescent glittery embossing powder. Love this stuff. I bought it on clearance at Joann's about a year ago and will be very sad when its gone. Guess I need to start looking for a replacement. The ribbon is an ivory/cream color I got at Michael's (that stuff they put 3 or 4 for $1 all the time!).
Here is a close up of the stamping so you can see the shimmer and rainbow effect this powder gives.
I loved this challenge! Don't get me wrong, I love my machines but sometimes its nice to ignore them! Challenge ends at Midnight on March 25.
