Krista’s August Challenge…..

Over at Simply Creating, Krista challenged us to make a card/ layout using the card base ONLY and stamps….No embellies…No paper!!!! OK so that got my mind going…and I was off on an adventure!

I ordered the goodie box from CTMH the other day and received some stuff I don’t think I will EVER USE…ah ha, I thought, I can use these Level 1 CTMH base pages as cards :-) So here are my first attempts at Krista’s Challenge





These were done with  12x12 black base pages



These were done with More to Adore Bulk 12x12 pages


019 This is my fav one!


021 020


These were done with kraft CS and CTMH Free Spirit and Card Commentary SS and Tulip Ink!!!!

SO I challenge you ALL you make a card or Layout that meets Krista’s challenge. Base card/page only and stamps. It was a TON of fun! If you do make a card let me know and go post a link on Krista’s site!!!

I hope you are all having a WONDERFUL Thursday!

All of them are stunning! You know that's what I love about challenges, it really forces me to go way outside my zone sometimes. I think these are a perfect example of 'less is more'!
LOVE them...

And what a fun adventure it was - for all of us! Your cards are great! I just might have to give this a whirl, too! TFS.

Have a great Friday!!

Oh, these are all so adorable! What a tough challenge, but it looks like fun...I may have to give it a try tomorrow:)

Oma said...

Krista is my niece and I want to have a go at her challenge as well. I have an idea for a card, but am waiting for her to post her example before I make my card.

Carla said...

Great cards Sarah!! I'm off to see if I can come with anything for this challenge!!

Krista Ritskes said...

Fabulous job! You're sneaky using base pages and level 1 pages. ;)

Alanna said...

How fun Sarah. I love all of these. Great job on the challenge.

Cibele Glazer said...

You make everything look so easy. I have base pages and I wouldn't even know where to begin to cut to make them look as nice as yours. I love your stamp choices. Great job as usual!

SamieVt said...

Wow Sarah you've been a busy girl! It would take me days to come up with such awesome work! I love the simplicity of some of your cards. Sometimes I think that I need to overload them with this and that in order for them to look beautiful - thank you for reminding me that sometimes less is more! Awesome work!

Caryl P said...

These cards turned out absolutely amazing Sarah! Perfect to actually mail with a single stamp too. :-)
I'm loving the craft cards especially, I may need to try my hand at that!

Laurel said...

Wow, so fabulous! Love the black ones!

Jeanne said...

Wowza! What a great response to the challenge. You've lived up to it and then some. Excellent work!

Steph said...

Christina said...

Geez louise you were really on a roll weren't you? Your mojo was in full effect! :O) They all turned out super cute!

There is something so elegant in simplicity. We use tons of papers, buttons, brads, and flowers, when sometimes all we really need is a stamp and ink. These are gorgeous!!
