Stamps for every challenge and a bit of MDS2


I love Wednesdays. Is kind of like my day to show you what I made up with the challenges I found during the week. I mean stamping challenges. Life challenges I try putting in God's hands, do my best and forget the rest. That is my way of living by grace. :)\

So challenges...I am not bored at all of going back to these ones..they just keep me going lately. It's easy to create when someone else is giving you a bit of a starting point. Check out SIMPLY LESS IS MORE together with RETRO SKETCHES.

Vintage Verses (in Spanish, from the SAB brochure)
Tools: 3/4" circle punch, Owl Builder punch (heart), Simply Scored Tool
Designer Series Paper: Comfort Cafe

For this card I used Less is More Color challenge which was Kraft and Kreme...colors I hardly ever use (at least not by themselves) and the cool retrosketch#49. Click on those highlighted to see other very nicely done samples. You will be inspired for sure! So much talent, goodness!

Also, I had so much fun with this other sketch that not only made a scrapbook page posted HERE, but had to make a card for a super cool friend for Valentines. This friend likes funny cards...and honestly I do NOT have many funny sayings or funny images in my Stampin'Up! stash...O, well! Here is where the surprise comes. Remember I got MDS2 a few months ago. Yipee!! Enjoy the new Valentine Tags downloads. Aren't they fun?!

Now my card (scroll down to see the surprise):

Stamp set: Sassy Salutations, Officially Awesome Valentines Designer Template
Designer Series Paper: More Amore, CS: Pool Party, Real Red, Soft Suede
Embellishment: Antique Brads, Owl Builder Punch (hearts)
Officially Awesome Valentines Designer Template -- Digital Download
Is the first time I used my MDS2 downloads, yipee! I could not resist to make a hybrid project. :)

I used  Create with Connie & Mary sketch CCMC237. See other samples HERE!
Look at the awesome sketch. I so enjoy their site! Thanks C&M!
