Challenge# 20: Cricutless/ Stamping w/ video

Time for another challenge!! This month is a little strange, since there are 3 wednesdays this month. so just wanted to let everyone know that I will not be announcing the winner until the 8th of April.

This challenge is a fun one. Cricutless/ Stamping. This is a great chance to use your pattern papers, stamps, stickers, rub ons , embossing folders  and cutting dies! Use whatever you want to create an original project, just as long as you don't use an electronic diecutter machine (cricut, pazzles, silhouette sd, craft robo, gazelle, cougar....etc) AND you must feature some sort of stamping on your card (be it a sentiment or an image, ) digital stamps are A OK :-)

Feel free to combine this challenge, with a sketch challenge, or color challenge, or anything of that sort. But you cannot combine this challenge with another "Cricutless" Challenge , because that is not a challenge at all.

Once again the prize for this month is
Mother's day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge.

If you don't have a cricut, no problem you can still enter a project for a chance to win, and I will send you another crafty prize of equal value

This week our guest designer is Priyanka from Priyanka's Creations
 and she created this Amazingly lavish and beautiful wedding stair step card. I love how she used fabric on her card. You can tell that she put ALOT of work into creating this masterpiece.
Please take the time to stop by her website and give her some love. She is one talented woman!

First up for my Design Team Ladies is Amanda

I love love love this card she made. sometimes simple and elegant is just the way to go, and I love the giant buttons inside of the flowers.
Next up is Elsa..
I am so smitten by this little honey bear, he is so sweet. you can't stay mad at him at all. The colors make this card a perfect gender neutral card great for any apology

Last but not least is Ivette

All I can say is wow. She used a jumbo fiskars bacground stamp and colored them in with her copic markers. I am sure that was time consuming but wow did that pay off! It comes across so pefectly spring!! Just in time for mother's day. Also love cards with the coordinating inside.
