and I used a bunch of items in my stash as part of the "Use What You Have Challenge #9" at the Sweet Stamp Shop.
The challenge at Fusion is going on all month and closes July 24th, so there is still plenty of time to play along. You can make a card using the sketch, the photo, or a "fusion" of both! There are some really clever entries so far...be sure to check it out.
The "Use What You Have" challenge at the Sweet Stamp Shop is to make a card using the stash you have, then post a picture of both your stash AND your project! You may be aware that I like to stamp images and color them for later use, and so I usually have some fun stamped images in my stash. I also die cut or punch patterned papers instead of tossing scraps...yet more stash! So, here is some of the stuff on my desk when I sat down to make my card (oh, my, what a mess!)...
Note that I am so, shall we say, "thrifty" that I even cut up the left-over parts of pop dots and use the diamond shapes as pop dots, too!
And here is the card I made...
Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop "Sweet Tooth"
Inks: black die ink, Copic markers
Other: MFT label die, Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle die,
Cuttlebug "Seeing Spots" embossing folder, patterned paper scraps
While I've had this stamp set for a while, I ordered a bunch of stamp sets from Sweet Stamp Shop during one of their sales a few months back, but I am just now finding the time to break them out and play. I hope to have more cards using these fun stamps soon!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by...hope all is well!
