It's time for another challenge over at the Shopping Our Stash blog! This week we have a Triple Threat! We ask you to use at least three items from this list: ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, glimmer mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work too), dry embossing or scoring -OR- use three of one type of embellishment. LOTS of options, here!
Being the over-achiever that I tend to be, I did both options. :) First, here's my "three from the list" card:
Cindy, aka: The Crafty Frugalista. (*waves*) This paper could pretty much be used all by its lonesome, but noooooo, I dolled it up. My three items from the list are the doily, which I cut off and stuck under the ribbon, which is woven through a piece of eyelet lace. I went for four items and added some pearls, too.
There's some serious stash usage happenin' here. The skinny ribbon is from waaaaay back when I first started stamping and hadn't heard of SU yet, so I bought that skinny ribbon in every color. Sometimes twice. The eyelet lace was found hiding in a cubbyhole behind some other lace; I'd completely forgotten I even had it. The doily is from a pack of too many for $1 and I will never, ever, use them all. Also, the letters in the word 'love' are stickers from the Webster's Pages Groupon dealio I bought last year. Speaking of never, ever, using all of something. ;/ Oh, the layers of card stock are Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade. ALSO, this card is 4.5x6.5, so I'll be making an envelope for it, some day.
For my next trick, I spied a container of shiny prezzie stickers on my desk and I attempted to disappear them by making this:
Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash and collect a bunch of "stuff", combine it all to make a card, then come back to Shopping Our Stash to link us up so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
