SOS501: No Stamping Allowed!

It's ALMOST Anything Goes at Shopping Our Stash this fortnight: you can make a card of any size and shape, for any occasion, using any colors you'd like; BUT... (you knew there was gonna be a but here, right?!) ...you cannot include any stamping! 

I was considering a few different ideas when I stumbled upon most of a sheet of Altenew Journal Cards from (it says on the part of the tearstrip which still remains) 2016, and it all sort of clicked into place. I've used three of the cards: the bike one is still exactly as it appeared on the sheet; those fussycut butterflies came from the texty card the bike is matted on; and that beautiful cluster of flowers came from a third. I also brought in some cool (ancient!) Jenni Bowlin button stickers; part of a very old patterned paper with alphabetical tabs on; and a tiny scrap of Basic Grey from the Out of Print line. I did lots of edge-distressing, a bit of machine stitching and called it a day.

Be sure to visit SOS to see the other inspiring creations our amazing crew have come up with, then start thinking of what you'll link up for our "No Stamping Allowed" challenge!
