Happy Tuesday, and welcome to another Shopping Our Stash challenge. This week we ask you to use your oldest bling. "Bling" as in rhinestones, stickles, glitter, etc.
I have a little hoard of OMG WHY DID I BUY THIS bling, most of it acquired during my early days of card-making when I haunted the dollar bins at Mike's. Mixed in with all that bling I re-discovered something even older. Lookie:
The package on the left is normal bling. The package on the right is the remains of a cell phone or iPod sticker, or something. I thought I was being so smart by buying that. I mean just look at all those tiny blings! Unfortunately, they are designed to stay stuck to their backing, and not to be used individually. Therefore, I might have strained a few muscles while surgically removing each one to make this:
There is lots of stash here in addition to the bling. The poppy polka dotted piece was in the dwindling Heaplet, and the white layer was the back of a failed card. The heart was die-cut from the back of a piece of the same poppy paper. It has text on it, and I stamped over it with one of the hearts in the set. I'd intended to put the bling in the center of those honeycombs, so I did.
Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash and find your oldest bling, use it to make a card, then come back to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!
Thanks for stopping by!
