My cup overfloweth!!

15% off HERO ARTS Stamps

use code: 15HERO510
offer ends: 7/10 (Saturday)

So happy to be getting the time/opportunity to break out my "TOYS". I have picked and created up so many unusual embellishments during this move. Take a closer look at my embellishment.
The pink fabric is part of a lifetime supply that I discovered when throwing out an old pillowcase. This one was dyed using tea & food coloring. The green ribbon was a scrap that I found on the ground after I had packed up all of my supplies and the black & white thread came in one of those tiny ziplocks w/ a few buttons which are attached to new clothes.

Pile It On: My Favorite Things (finding stuff and being able to use them on my projects is my all time favorite)
The Shabby Tea Room: Let's Make an Impression (use embossing)
The Pink Elephant: 3 Layers, 2 Die Cuts & Ribbon
ABC Challenge: Y is for "You & Me" meaning use 2 of something (I used 2 stamps)

...........Supplies I used................
Stamps: Unity
Ink: Copic Markers, Tim Holtz, Momento (black)
Cardstock: Paper Trey Ink (blush, white)
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny, Bazzill embossed
Tools: Spellbinders (nestabilities scalloped square), Martha Stewart (border punch ), Stampin Up (label die)
Misc: Shirley's 2 Girls (button), random fibers
