Technique Lover's Challenge #350

Good morning everyone!! It's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast!! As I was stamping away this week, a silly thought popped into my head....what would happen if all my stamps disappeared....GASP!!! What would I 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!!!

My card features a clown and sentiment that were cut from a piece of patterned paper, a banner sticker, and a diecut piece of embossed patterned paper. The stars were punched from cardstock and the buttons with twine finish it off. Come One, Come All and join us for a fun challenge!!!
Paper: White, Real Red, Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Imaginisce dp, SonBurn dp
Accessories: Baker's Twine, Buttons, Banner Sticker, Star Punch, Corner Punch, Border Die from PTI

This is an awesome challenge! I LOVE LOVE LOVE creating scenes with my dies...can't wait to try it out!

Sasha said...

Hi Joan, love your fun card! This challenge would suit me fine, as I'm not the worlds best stamper, and often create my cards without using any stamps at all:)

This came out great! I'm not a clown lover, but this guy is fun looking, not spooky at all. The banner and stars are a great background.

This is one fun card without using a stamp. Hmm.... I think Holiday Card Boot camp has given me just the right idea to maybe do this challenge.

I would never imagine unless you did it, Joan, that it could be done! A very wonderful and cute card! Love that clown and those buttons are the perfect add!

Eek! No stamps? Not even digis?? I feel sick at the thought!

I really LOVE this one, Joan, so bright and such fun. And the buttons are just the right amount of dimension too. Clever girl. CoB
