FUSION #13 and SSS "UWYH #9" Combo!

Hello, friends!  I've been hangin' out in my craft corner and I was able to make a card for two current challenges.  I followed Jackie's sketch at Fusion...

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 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...

Materials Used:
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!


  1. What a FAB Sweet card! Cannot wait to see what else you create! Thanks for playing along with the SSS USe What You Have Challenge!

  2. So darn cute Judy! I love how the embossed circles in the background mimic the gumballs.

  3. LOL! I just posted a card for both these challenges too and I used the same SSS stamp set! Great minds, Judy! Love how the embossed polka dots mimic the gumballs and I so want those Wonky Rectangle dies!

  4. This is just the sweetest card! Love how the embossing highlights those gumballs! Darn clever. Just too much fun! Bev
