Getting Creative with Ann #5 - Minimum Materials

Can you believe this is the 5th week for the GCA??? Time sure flies when your having fun!!! I know I'm having a ball bringing these challenges to you every week, as they help me grow as a stamper as I hope they help you!

This week we are working with Minimum Materials! What are minimum materials you ask? This is where we contain the amount of materials used on our creations, such as; cardstock, embellishments or even the type of card we make.

This week for minimum materials I want you to have NO MORE than:

* 3 layers (and this includes your base layer)

* 2 different types of embellishments

* you must have 1 dimensional portion to your card

* your card can be any theme

My sample for you this week was inspired by a swap I received at convention this year. I'll post a pic of that swap tomorrow after my camera batteries charge!

I used the Batty For You Halloween set to make a simple, yet cute, Halloween card. I made a change from the swap card, and that is the addition of the one circle punched image on Whisper White and raised up with a dimensional.

As you can see, even with minimum materials you can still create a beautiful card!!

To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a card with the listed minimum materials, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by August 22, 2008 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next day. Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it!If you upload your card on SCS, please put GCA5 (NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 5) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once!

If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Happy stamping and creating!!!!
