As You See It Challenge #184 - Back To Basics

Back To Basics we go...

What a great challenge for this “over thinker” 😝

Here’s what we can use:
- Paper
- Stamps
- Ink
- Ribbon, just a touch
- Scissors
- Paper Trimmer

I even decided to make my own background with the Concord & 9th Plaid stamp.... Stampin Up now has this background stamp too, the possibilities are endless with this baby ...

Definitely had to do some fussy cutting with scissors, I find this part very relaxing as I concentrate on moving the paper around the stamped image and keeping the scissors stationary.  Then lightly inking the edges gives you a nicely defined and finished look.

Stampin’ Up! Supplies Used:
Cardstock- Whisper White, Purely Pomegranate
Ink - Rose Red, Old Olive
Stamp Set - Healing Hugs

Concord & 9th
- Plaid Background


  1. Oh yes! Soooo pretty! Isn't it amazing what we can do with just the basics? Love the colours you've chosen here and the way you've got your fussy cut rose to shine like this. Thanks for joining us again at As You See It.

  2. Oh boy, you had me at the Buffalo Check background! It's proof you don't need a lot of stuff to make a beautiful card...your floral image is perfect to accompany the plaid! Thanks for sharing this with us at AYSI this week!

  3. Gail, you have the technique down pat for those tricky DistINKtive stamps like the rose! and the buffalo check lower background is a great choice! Beautiful card! Thanks for joining us at As You See It!
