Last day for challenge #171: No design paper week

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to Sweet Stamps No design paper challenge.
Irit is here today and I think that I am a very first design team member to post here in Sweet Stamps blog with our new posting format. From now on you will see all of us here once in two weeks with our own posts and some sweet inspiration.
 I know that this is a last day to enter our No design  paper  weekly challenge, but you still have like 24 hours to make your best and who knows? You may even win some of Sweet Stamps delicious goodies.
So just as a final reminder : here is a card I made for this weekly challenge and as you can see no patterned paper needed when you have Sweet Stamps  gorgeous products on your craft table.

 Actually I don't use designer paper frequently, so it's just as kind of a challenge I like a lot.
The background black cardstock was stamped with SS Paris Script stamp using white pigmented ink and white fine detail embossing powder. Then I added a couple of golden washi tapes over this stamped background and my card was ready to get it's focal point.



The focal point was stamped with Paris Collage stamp, the same white ink and white powder way over SS Black ATC piece of cardstock. Then I made those gold heat embossed edges with  clear embossing ink and  Vintage gold embossing enamel.
A few chipboard pieces were added over the focal point: 2 small, stamped with black ink envelopes and a postmark, heat embossed with Black embossing powder.
The sentiment  " Best wishes" was made over the same black ATC piece of cardstock the same heat embossed way, but now I stamped with clear  ink and embossed the sentiment with the same gold powder. A couple of flowers were the final touch for this card.
As you can see you don't really need  any designer paper  to make your fancy stamped project.


So now it's your turn! Enter our Sweet Stamps challenge and you can win some lovely SS goodies too! Go for those AF Cling stamps I used and for our great ATC sized cardstock if you win.
Anyway, if you win, it's your pick. Just play and win!

Wow, this looks great. Love the color combo and the black/white background really makes the yellow and blue really pop.
