UK ST Use your Stash – Challenge #1

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?

9 Step background for the ATC

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.

I had a very few minutes before chow time, so I’ve just quickly put one of the backgrounds together as a step by step – 9 (if you don’t count the extra two stampings of the camera on the background).

Cut a piece of 2.5″ x 3.5″ Junkitz pattern paper.

With Whispers Violet stamp the French Manuscript Image top righthand corner.

Use a piece of scratch paper and mask this image, and stamp image again bottom lefthand side.

Take more scratch paper, and mask this image as well and stamp the image again in the gap left.

Take the Silkern Knots Stamp and the Savoy Green Whispers Ink, and stamp it on lefthand side.

Stamp the image again next to it, taking it right across the ATC.

Take the Whispers Ink in Rich Plum and a piece of CutnDry foam, picking up some ink and rubbing around the edges, and slightly into the centre, blending as you go. Also run the pad around all edges when you are done.
Then take the camera image from the See-D’s Vintage (50165) ink up with Timber Brown StazOn, and stamp it top righthand side of the ATC.
Ink it up again and stamp the image a further time bottom righthand side, but move the image slightly, then again towards the middle’ish on lefthand side. I aimed for a slightly distressed look for this layer of stamping, so it really doesn’t matter that it wasn’t a brilliant impression.
Obviously, I had to scan in each image as I did this, so it took a bit longer – a conservative estimate in real time is probably 2 minutes or less, as the stamps and inks were right on my desk.

Dress ATC

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.
