Concord Note

If you read my last post you already know that Lisa Henke and I did some virtual stamping again yesterday afternoon.  We enjoy doing this as often as possible as it makes us (me anyway) feel a bit more creative and spontaneous.  I don't sit for a long time looking for the perfect challenge or perfect starting point- Lisa usually provides one for me.  Then I do the same and we both do both challenges.  FUN!  The only thing that could be more fun would be to stamp together IRL- but that just doesn't happen often being nearly 3 hours apart. 

For my flower on this card I found an OLD flower die called Large Daisies that I've had since the original red Sizzix days!  I have no idea if it is available any longer and it was never sold by SU as far as I know.  The paper is the 6x6 In Color paper pack that is a level one hostess set. 

Anyway, my challenge for us was to incorporate at least 2 items from the following list: 

  • Color combo: Neutrals plus one color*
  • Something old something new: use a stamp set you haven't used in AGES and something relatively new together
  • brads *
  • wheel*
  • No DSP
  • Big Shot*
  • CAS*
I've starred the items I did on my card.  We'd both love it if you'd decide to play along!  Please leave a comment here or on Lisa's post so we can come ooh and ahhh over your work. 

Thanks for stopping by!
