ATSM Challenge #84 - Clean and Simple

There's a brand new challenge right now at Addicted to Stamps and More! It's time to strip things down and go clean and simple (CAS).

Here is my DT card -



For this card I have used HEAPS of little things that have never been used before.

There are two Hero Arts stamps that I must have had for about 8 years but only just inked up - the abstract squares and solid dots.

The kite dies are from Memory Box and this is the first time I have used them! I have cut them out onto patterned paper and solid cardstock then glued them together to make them thicker. 

In all that stamping are 3 more sets that I have used: STAMPlorations Retro Mod Shapes, Gorgeous Grunge (SU) and Simply Sketched (SU).

The stamping was very random. I really had no idea what it would all look like when finished but I am happy with the end result :)


We are very lucky to have our Guest Designer joining us again this week. Please say hi to Cathy when you are doing your rounds.


Once again, we also have the wonderful sponsor from StampArt joining us this week -


The prize is 5 digis from the store! Thank you Kathryne!!

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges -

Make it Monday #180 - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #45 - Anything Goes
Daring Cardmakers - Old but not Forgotten


Thanks so much for looking xx

  6. I love this card Kylie, the stamping is great. I like the soft colours as the background and then the strong blocks. I think this gives great contrast. And adding the die cuts gives your card dimension, I may have left it one layer but think this works better with dimension.

  15. I LOVE the end result Kylie! I am a HUGE fan of grunge and absolutely love your background. Great job using things you had never used before too! I'm really bad about that. lol I think I might have to make some little square stamps like those. Very modern and cool...especially for being 8 years old! :)
