this is my entry into the UK STampers Use your Stash Challenge (although for obvious reasons whilst I’m collecting points that’s just for fun).
Challenge #1 was to use a stamp that has not seen active service, and make either an ATC or card with it.
I used this fabbie little Magenta Image of the apple tree, which I got about 3 years ago for Christmas from one of the kids.
- Magenta Stamp (36047H) **never been used in active service
- Non-Seq Leaf stamp ** never been used in active service
- Green background paper by Basic Grey Lily Kate 6 x6 collection pack
- Scrap piece of light blue Bazzil
- Piece of KI Colourful ribbon set
- Marvy Metallic Marker in Blue
- Whispers Dye Ink in Azure
- Red buttons from stash
- Tombo Multi Adhesive
- Glossy Accents
- Sugarloaf Coloured Markers and Blender Pen
Total points gained 7.
Why not join in?
Really quick (because I had the wooden rectangle already primed and painted) little door hanger for Lydia’s room.
Stamps: Bird and tiny flower from Non-Sequitur Sheet 85
Inks/Paints: Timber Brown and Blazing Red StazOn, Jo Sonja’s Old White and Rich Gold
Other: scraps of Basic Grey Blush and Infuse paper, wooden scrabble letters, small crocheted flower, red buttons and brown organza ribbon.
Holes made with Cropadile – ha, this time I remembered to puch them first!
Hazel left a lovely comment on my work, and mentioned that the background for the ATC I posted looked like hard work. It’s embarrassing, but not really. God Bless fab stamps, arty background papers and Whispers Dye Inks.
Another ATC, this time using the See-D’s 50165 Vintage set. Base paper is the same yellow Junkitz as the last one, then over stamped with the French Manuscript in Whispers Violet, then over stamped with Silken Knots (Penny Black 3362K) in Savoy Green. I then applied Whispers Rich Plum around the edges with CutnDry.
The fans down the left hand side were then stamped in Timber Brown StazOn, and some of my tiny metallic hearts in green added.
Then ran a piece of cream ricrac along about 2/3rds up.
The dress form (a personal passion of mine at the moment) was stamped on Kraft cardstock in Timber Brown StazOn, then coloured with Econline Inks (Forest Green No. 656 and Ultramarine Violet No. 507). Windsor & Newton’s Irridescent watercolour medium was then painted over the top for shimmer – I took the precaution of sealing that one with hairspray. This was then mounted with silicon glue.
Recently, I’ve noticed a trend starting – when I get a new set of stamps I use them, and also tend to use whatever is sitting on my desk, and then go and cherry pick from supplies that aren’t if I need other things. Rarely these days to I plan something from scratch.
phew, somebody else has come clean about “uncool” stamp ownership, glad I’m not the only one then!
