Inspired

I was inspired the other day by LeAnne who made a card not using stamps. I told her about a blog that has a "no stamping" challenge every week. 

Since it is approaching Valentine's Day, I made my card for our Godson. It also qualifies for The Paper Players and Paper Craft Crew Challenges. Here are the links to all the challenges: UnstampaBelles. They also have a twist...must use something new!

LeAnne is part of the Paper Players team and their challenge is "Will You Be My Valentine?". The Paper Players #330

Since everything I used was from Stampin' Up, it will definitely be entered in SUO #167 "It's Time for Valentines"...and I do hope our Godson will be our Valentine!

Now, with all the housekeeping out of the way, here's my card and the WHATZIT about it...



My card base is Real Red, along with the mats (and one Basic Black). The stickers, arrow and banner are from the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit (that is the new!) The punched pieces with tiny hearts (punched with SU's retired Word Window) are also from that kit...no stamping...who knew this was possible for me!!! I will write on the inside to keep it truly "no stamping".

Thanks for looking!

  1. Well done! Not only no stamping but a beautiful and unique card for a male. I love all the new stuff in the Occasions catalogue and it is costing me a fortune! Thank goodness Sale-A-Bration is on at the same time! Thanks for sharing this with us at Unstampabelles for our first challenge in 2017 - Anything Goes (except Stamping!).
