Limited Supplies Challenge

Friday's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is called Limited Supplies and this week the challenge is called "I thought we were stamping".

Exactly. No stamping. Create your card but no stamping.

Man......not so hard when I stopped hyperventilating!

I used designer paper, a flower, ribbon and a vellum quote that I have had for awhile for my card!

I love this quote " The mere sense of Living is joy enough" How true is that!!

I cut a panel of Basic Grey Sugared paper 4" x 5-1/4" and glued it on my card base of River Rock cardstock.

Then I cut another strip of Sugared paper 2" x 5-1/2" and tied some Sweet Blush Papertrey Ink twill ribbon around it. Their ribbon comes in such beautiful colours - just perfect and only $3 for a 5 yeard spool!

I glued that piece down on the card base and set it aside.

The quote is on vellum and is from My Mind's Eye. It was glued onto very vanilla cardstock and trimmed to 3" x 3-1/2" and popped up onto the card with pop up dots - luv 'em!!

Then I adhered a button to the prima flower with a glue dot and then another glue dot was used to glue it onto the top right corner of the card.

To finish it off I highlighted the word "joy" - and why not!! with a copic marker.

I went and bought Mother's Day flowers today to go with the set of cards that I am giving to My mom and hubby's mom. My son works there so I had to go and see him in action!!

How wonderful to go into the greenhouse and see such gorgeous colours of thumbergia and impatiens and the verbena smells just divine!! Along with that they are using bio-degradable pots so no more little green plastic pots blowing all over the place and me running around trying to gather them up (or out of the dogs mouth!!)


  1. Such a sweet card! I the softness and your sentiment. Happy Mother's Day! I adore Verbena! Have a happy healthy day! Deb

  2. I am so far behind on my blog hopping. Sorry I haven't been around. I missed visiting your site and all your lovely creations.
    This is gorgeous, Bonnie! I love that sentiment and the paper you used!

  3. I still have my project half done on my desk--yeah--Jen did give us some panic with the *no stamping* thing!!

    I love this! I love how you made the quote the main feature and the way you higlighted *joy*!

    Awesome take on the challenge!

  4. This is so the design of that stamp and the Sugared paper is yummy!

  5. I hope to get out to get some flowers tomorrow for planting. I love petunias!

    This card is gorgeous! I've fallen behind on blog hopping, only because my Internet connection has been horrible! Leaving comments has been taking a LONG time! I love all of your recent cards!!

  6. This is so pretty, love that velumn quote and your DP
