It is always fun to see what a group of people can do individually with a specific set of limited supplies.  The various outcomes can be SO diverse!  Today you will get to see what the team creates with just a handful of basic supplies, as well as demonstrate some additional project ideas with this year's Stamp-a-faire set, Natural Beauties!

The-Challenge
Your challenge is to create a project using the limited supply list provided below.  You can choose to re-create one of the designer projects or design something all your own.

These are the specifics that were provided to each of the team members.  You can use as many or as few as you like and any inks you prefer.  You may also add in dies, twine or glitter if you desire. Please do not use any other products besides those listed below, however you can substitute the Natural Beauties stamp set for another floral set if need be.

  • STAMPS: Natural Beauties only (or another floral set as a substitute if needed)
  • PAPER: Stamper's Select White, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse
  • RIBBON: Hawaiian Shores Bitty Dot
  • BUTTONS: Simply Chartreuse

Using the supplies from the challenge, I decided to create a tall card and make my own background paper.

Limited Challenge Card
I stamped my block of white cardstock with just the detail layer of the flowers from Natural Beauties.  The larger ones in Hawaiian Shores and the smaller ones in Aqua Mist.

Background closeup
I added leaves in Simply Chartreuse and centers to the large flowers with Summer Sunrise.

Sentiment
The sentiment is stamped on a block of Simply Chartreuse using Ripe Avocado ink.  I used the Pinking Shears die to add borders of Hawaiian Shores cardstock.  Simply Chartreuse buttons tied with twine flank either side of the sentiment.

Down
Here is a specific list of my measurements and the extra supplies I added into the mix.

EXTRAS

  • INK: Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse
  • OTHER: Pinking Shears border die, corner rounder punch

MEASUREMENTS

  • Aqua Mist card base (8" x 6-1/2", scored at 4" on the 8" side)
  • Stamper's Select White background block (5-3/4" x 3")

    Can the paper colors be from a paper collection or all only cardstock?

    I love all these card idea. It would be more fun if we could submit photos even without papertrey ink products! My first order isn’t coming until next week, too late to play with this!
