Escaping the Comfort Zone

Welcome to another Cardmaker Blog team hop!  The theme is Escaping the Comfort Zone. Create a card that is a departure from your norm such as no stamping, no layers, etc.

Whew! This one was really tough for me.  I don't do one style ALL of the time. I tend to make different styles of cards because I get bored easily.  So, I had to think about the things I use often on my cards--

A few of my favorite products that I use on most of my cards include: patterned paper, stamps, ink, baker's twine or ribbon.  I am also quite fond of layers (at least two of them anyway!)

So for this card--I went without.  No patterned paper, no stamps, no ink, no ribbons or twine, no layers--

So here is my one layer card made entirely out of....STICKERS! That is it.


 And sure I love stickers...but I HAD to use something on the card, right?

Supplies:  Shape Stickers- Sidewalks (October Afternoon); Clear stickers--Sticker Sentiments: Thank You, We've Got Your Border-Birthday (SRM Stickers).

I CANNOT wait to see what these gals did with this challenging challenge:

How cute is this? I love the stickers - what a great idea, I seem to always forget about things other than stamps! Love your take on the challenge, Cammie - this card is adorable!

How fun Cammie!
You found some adorable stickers to play with. The one layer thing looks good too. I need to do some of that myself. I always seem to stack them up. ;)

Hugs,
True :D
