TRCC #5-No Patterned Paper

It's time for another fun challenge over on The Rubber Cafe Design Team Blog!

This weeks challenge is to make a card or other project with NO Patterned/Designer Paper! If you know me you know that I love patterned paper! I use it on nearly everything so this really was a challenge for me!

But...it was also a terrific opportunity to get my new set, " Vintage Treasures" inky! I don't usually do Vintage but it was fun to challenge myself for this challenge.

Here are three samples with no patterned paper that I came up with:


For all three of these cards:
Stamps:
"Vintage Treasures" by The Rubber Cafe
Ink:
Tim Holtz Distress inks
Paper:
Prism Cardstock
Other:
May Arts trim
Prima flowers
Buttons from my stash
American Crafts felt flower

If you want to join the challenge this week....

The Rules are Simple:
•Make a new card incorporating this weeks challenge (you are welcome to combine with other challenges and you do not have to use TRC stamps but if you do you'll be entered twice for the random prize draw)
•Link below, directly to your post
•Mention our challenge, on your post (with a link back here)
*If you post in a public gallery use key word TRCC5

Each week we will randomly draw a winner out of the projects that are entered and the winner will win a prize. This weeks prize is a $10 gift certificate to the Rubber Cafe store.

Good Luck!!!

Thanks for a fun challenge! I often prefer to make my own designs on cardstock and use it in place of patterned paper, so this worked out to be FUN for me!

Great idea! Thanks again!!

This is such a great challenge idea! It took me a while to decide that I could actually make a card without patterned paper, but I really like the result. I'll probably do this more often now! Thanks for giving me a wonderfully creative afternoon.

It looks rather plain without the dp...I think I could have added a bit more with embossing...next time!
