Good Morning, I hope that you are all having a wonderful week of sunshine.
It is time for another ABC Christmas challenge and this week our theme is
This time we want to see you make a no frills card, one that does not use any designer papers.
We have two sponsors for this weeks challenge.
Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky entrant A $15 voucher
and the fabulous Karen's doodles have offered up
3 digis from Karen's doodles of their choice for our second lucky participant.
This week, I have decided to try something a little different for my card. As we were not using designer papers I decided to have a play with a couple of background stamps for the focal point of my card. I must say that I had a blast playing with the distress inks but if one was to look closely I think that there is still a slight blue tinge to my fingertips.
To create this I have embossed a Hero Arts doily stamp in the bottom corner then used distress inks over the entire background to make the doily pop. I then inked up the snowflake background stamp and stamped over the entire thing, I matted the card several times and then added a simple sentiment and a snowflake peeloff sticker to finish it off.
You cannot get much simpler, this card was completed start to finish in under half an hour.
I hope that you will join us for our challenge this week. I look forward to stopping by your blogs for a visit. Before you head off to start crafting be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge and see the gorgeous no frills cards that my teamies have created to share with you.
