Now I'm really dumpster diving into the "STASH"



Yesterday's "Takin' Out The Stash" post ended up being more about some new challenges that I was excited to have found, rather than talking Stash..... What would I do without a challenge to jump start my creativity? Probably sit at the computer procrastinating! Let's try this again shall we? The stash that I impressed myself by using was the new Basic Grey Woolies from ABC Toys & Crafts. These fun little embellishments are exactly what I would ordinarily hoard. Admiring them through their clear cellophane packaging. I did it though, I set them free ;o) Not only did I use the Woolies but I also broke into the "Forbidden Expensive Italian Ribbons". I mean seriously check out that funny little pooch standing above the crazy pom pom fringe. If you pay close attention you might just see that I used this week's MOJO103 sketch. I see all the elements of the sketch. What do you think?


The next card shows off the Butterfly Woolie from Basic Grey's Lemonade line using the 2 sketches 4 you challenge ----> HERE. The scalloped square frame was plain chipboard that I painted using white acrylic paint then covered it in Dazzling Diamonds. I used Martha Stewart punches on both cards, however, on the butterfly card I punched both sides of a strip of cardstock then covered the center using the green gingham ribbon. I stamped polka dots on the black card base using Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As I sit here looking at both of these cards, I realize that they pretty much qualify for all of the challenges that I listed yesterday so maybe I should go link them up. I would love to WIN something. Don't forget to leave a comment on my Blog Candy.

Both cards are so cute & creative. I'm especially fond of the black & red plaid with the doggy, great color combination you don't see everywhere. I love following creative people and seeing the talent. You are now in my follow list...Thanks, Tracy
