My very talented friend, Elle, from Creative Cardsea, had a brilliant idea to challenge herself to make the most out of her stamp sets. To quote Elle,
So, I’ve decided to make a little challenge for myself and do a Stamp Trio Challenge. I will take a specific stamp set and create 3 cards with it, and I’ll try to push myself to make very different cards (ex. masculine, feminine and general, or different themes/sentiments).
I think this is such a great idea and I wanted to play along. Elle started her challenge with the Hello Baby stamp set from Lawn Fawn. Since I have just purchased this same set I thought I might as well start the challenge using this set.
As soon as I saw the set I thought the bunnies would look amazing in sepia tones. I had originally planned to put the bunnies on a tag with a pretty green ribbon but somewhere along the line it morphed into something else. lol
Here’s the card…
So this is my first card in the Stamp Trio Challenge. Now I’m off to make card number two.
Thanks Elle for creating such a great challenge! If you play along, please link to your card in the comments as I would love to see what you make. And please visit Elle’s blog – you are in for a real treat!
Kudos to you and Elle for ‘stretching’ your stamps – and what a brilliant idea it is (and then you can create more gift sets *grin*)! I may have to ‘get smart’ and follow suit, because my oh my, I a number of stamps (despite my small collection compared to others!) that haven’t even touched an ink pad! Stretching stamps; stretching creativity! Now, your little bunnies here, in their sepia tones, nestled in the grass, expressing their love through those delectable sweet pink hearts, is totally charming, delightful and darling! Of course your card should be on the LF Facebook page; you’ve showcased the set, through your unique style and flair, with pizzazz and panache! Love this immensely!! Hugs~c
lol I could just go into the gift card set industry? haha Such a good idea actually. I make way more cards than I ever use/send. It’s such a great challenge, C, you should play along. Thank you for your enthusiasm. You are such a great friend! hugs!
Oh, yay! I just saw that this card was the pin of the day on Lawn Fawn’s FB page! 😀
EEEP! How exciting! Was so thrilled to see it. 🙂 Thanks Elle! 🙂
Oh, yay! I’m so glad to see you jumping in on the idea. It’s really changed how I look at stamps, especially those “ooh, I really need this” stamp sets. It’s cut down on my impulse buys. Plus, it’s so nice to actually make use of my supplies rather than make them just sit there and gather dust…
I do love this sepia card! It reminds me of an older Beatrix Potter book I have – down to the yellowed pages. It’s gorgeously vintage, and absolutely perfect! It just works. I cannot wait to see the other 2. 😀
I love the idea! I don’t think it will stop me shopping, unfortunately! haha I do think it will ensure I get more out of each purchase though…and try a new way of looking at it rather than always doing it ‘Kylie’ style. ll
Thank you! That’s kinda the image in my head when I saw that set. I have to make the other two now. I got side-tracked yesterday. I do have ideas though so that’s a start. 🙂
