Second Update in one day!

And another challenge completed ...

Got the Stamp with Us challenge completed early this week :O)

The challenge is a Recipe this week and the recipe is NOT to use any patterned paper, to use 2 ribbons and 2 stamps.

Here's what I came up with

Recipe: (SUO)

Stamps: Circle Circus
Cardstock: Kraft, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
Marvelous Markers: Old Oliver, Real Red, Summer Sun
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip double Stitched, Real Red
Supplies: Vintage Brads

Did I meet all the critera?

No patterned paper - check, I created my own using the two stamps we were allowed to use. I just stamped repeatedly all over the cardstock using a versomark pad.

Use 2 ribbons, I used a red ribbon separating the two different cardstock bases and the chocolate chip tree base.

Use 2 stamps, this was the hardest. The tree is made up of 2 stamps AND the cardstock base were both stamped up using only those 2 stamps.

I can't take the credit for the design, that has to go to the great Nicole Heady, isn't that new set gorgeous, I couldn't afford a PTI order this month so thought I'd have a play with some new stamps that I do have - not bad for a first attempt (note - long fingernails, very small stamps and a stamp-a-ma-jig don't mix LOL)

Now I really do have to go do some of the dreaded housework ....

Ooh fab card, I love your take on this design (I think the colours are nicer in yours), I don't have Circle Circus, but I can see me adapting something, maybe Spot On to do something similar - it's great.

Great card Dawn. Quite a tricky recipe challenge this one - I will have to give it some thought! You did a wonderful job and I am starting to think I have to add Circle Circus to my wish list! :)
