ATSM Stamps!

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! and the theme this week is stamps.  Yes, you heard me correctly.  You just have to use stamps on your project.  They can be rubber stamps, clear stamps, doesn't matter as long as you use stamps!  Doesn't get much easier than that now, does it? :)

This week our fantastic sponsor and Guest Designer is JOANNA MUNSTER FROM INSPIRED BY STAMPING
Joanna is offering this prize to the winner of this challenge -
Inspired by Stamping

I chose the colors from Create with Connie and Mary for my card this week.  I thought they were so bright and cheery, which I could really use this time of year!

2013 Thursday Challenges-003

I knew I wanted to use Everything Eleanor because I am in love with those flourishes. After I stamped them and then stamped the doilies I thought it would look great embossed so I chose the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder.  It really coordinated nicely!  The circle behind the sentiment is pierced for some more added texture.  And of course the Seam Binding ribbon is ruffled. I love all of the texture on this card!  It looks detailed but it was actually quite simple. My favorite type of stress-free card. :)

Make sure you check out the other stamp creations at ATSM and link yours up for a chance to win too! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
