It's time to Stamp Simply! And I definitely did just that!
We've got an interesting challenge for you today. Here's what Sharon says:
July 23 - ssnotime149 - Two's Company - Deb Neerman provides a second challenge for us this month. Today Deb is suggesting that two's company ... three's a crowd? That's true this week because this week, we challenge you to use "2 of Something" on your card or other project. Some fun twosomes include: 2 different patterned papers, 2 different stamped images, 2 brads, 2 flowers, 2 bows, or 2 charms. Be creative ... but don't add that third 'something' ... only 2 are allowed! Have fun with this one!!!
This is harder than you think, LOL! OK, I used two patterned papers, two sewing stitches, two border dies (MFT Scalloped Scallop and Jumbo Scallop Die-namics dies), two leaves, two stamped images, and two buttons, from the MFT Spring Button Collection. I stamped the images from MFT's Thanks a Bunch set (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The flower, which I was trying to make look like a Bachelor's Button or thistle, is made from several layers of card stock cut with the Sunshine Die-namics die. The leaves were punched out, folded in half, and run through my paper crimper.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime149 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
