It's Tuesday, Time to take out the "Stash"


Takin' out the Stash
Tuesday
Tuesday is the day that I challenge myself to use products that I would rather "hoard". I broke into some brand new Basic Grey products that I just received from ABC Toys & Crafts. As a starting point this morning, I searched for some fun challenges and discovered a few "new to me" blogs. Today's card started with a fun challenge called "Pile It On". The object of their weekly challenges is to see how many challenges you can "pile" into one card. Their theme for this week is "birthday". Hmm how appropriate, seem to be so many of those going around, which brings me to Mina's challenge found HERE -----> Heidi's Birthday sketch. The 3rd challenge that I "Piled" into this card was a color challenge found HERE ------> The Pink Elephant. Their challenge was to use "Red, Yellow, Black & White".. 4th Challenge was to use 3 or more Patterned Papers found HERE -----> Crafty Creations Challenges. 5th Challenge was to use Polka Dots found HERE -----> My Time to Craft Challenge #77.
Those fun little shoes are from the new Verve stamps "Just My Style" that I WON. The stamp is one shoe but I stamped it twice onto patterned paper, highlighted using Copics, cut them out and popped the first one up with foam squares. The swirls behind the shoes is also a stamp in this new setSo what did I use out of my stash? Buttons, the leaf ribbon and new Basic Grey paper (June Bug).
