Use It Challenge #1


Rae has started a new challenge which I was all on board for. I gave it a go this week and plan to continue whenever I have time, great way for me to dig in to some things I haven't used.
The concept of Use It! challenges:
Create, create, create
while using supplies that you already have on hand~
scraps, 'older' products, products that you've been hoarding,
products you forgot you had purchased,
bits & pieces of whatever you have laying around
that you've 'thought about' using,
but never got around to actually using it.

I found a stamp that has never seen ink from Stampendous along with
some paper I purchased at least 3 years ago before my daughter was born. I don't know why I never used it as I love the colors in it. The buttons I don't use too much, but I am trying to break out things that have been sitting around and thing this challenge will help me.

I also came across the Bellarific Challenge for this week which was to use some of these colors & a button. I know I didn't use Bella stamps (hey, all of those have seen ink) but think this still meets the color criteria. I pulled out one of Mary Jo's old Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge which worked perfect with the image I had picked out.

Card details:
Stamp: Tiny Bloom from Stampendous
Cardstock: Kraft, Soft Sky, Certainly Celery, K & Co. Studio K Meadow Polka Dot Embossed Paper, neutral unknown
Inks: Copics & Memento Black
Accessories:
Cream Organdy Ribbon, twine, soft subtles buttons, nestabilities

Oh my goodness, you have paper that haven't seen the light of day in three years? You are cracking me up. I'm glad you finally whipped it out to make this super cute card.
