Creative team members, Liz and Amanda,  challenge you to invent your own project using mystery box items.

In your Mystery box this month:

You must use 3 different shades/patterns of PINK.
Plus add
* stamping
* staples
* and love heart/s

Please note: You may add some basics from your pantry (!!! - ie. ink, stitching, lettering), but please try to stick to the core ingredients as much as possible.

Here are our creations for some RES inspiration:

Liz's card:
Liz has used papers from the Authentique Paper range

Amanda's layout:
I have used papers from Graphic 45, Glitz designs, plus some other bits from my stash.
I also used the paper layers from Glitz, plus Bo bunny ETC element stickers, plus some flowers, plus must remember some dusty attic chipboard!
My stamping was on my acrylic hearts from my stash!


Looking forward to what you bake up this month!

Here's a quick word from Mistra about her challenge this month:

"My challenge for you this month was a challenge for me, it's something I never {or rarely do} but it's something I want to get over the phobia of doing!


I would like you this month to create a layout with Stamping on it!

I have created a LO of my hubby and I, which was taken just yesterday.  It looks a bit dorky, but hey, that's us LOL!

I have used 13th Hour Stamps by Kaiser as well as the gorgeous Timely Bird by Hero Arts Clings.  All sorts of stamps and inks can be found in the shop here:

I love the ones that are mounted to clear acrylic blocks, so I can see where I am stamping... it really took that "OMG" factor out of it for me!!" - Mistra

And here is my layout for the month, using some of the stamps in my stash:

I used a quote stamp down one side of the layout as the background and drew the title from this quote as well.  I love how my clock turned out - I stamped the clock onto a doiley. Once the ink had dried I picked a smooch ink from my stash....

  I picked snickerdoodle. (big stash--Ha ha ha!)
And then painted the clock face.  Also stamped and hand cut another clock face and stuck on the a foam dot. Also used my script stamp on the brown scalloped circle. Then I added the usual pretty embellishments to finish.

NOW - pull those stamps out of your stash and then pull all your new wonderful goodies you just bought from RES, and get creating!!!!

Have your layout loaded to Mistra's Mystery Challenge Gallery before midnight 31st October to have a chance to win!!
