this week's challenge at shopping our stash has a pretty good twist to it, are you ready? we want you to break out those christmas stamp sets... BUT... (...wait foooooor itttttttttttttt...) we want you to use one or more of the stamps for a NON-christmas card or project! told ya, it's a little twisty* but once you start thinking about it, kind of fun! as it turns out, i only have ONE xmas stamp set** but luckily it contained a stamp i could use. first, here's my card:
can you tell which element it is? well duh, lauren, of course they can, because there's only one stamped thing: the banner! here it is in its set, which was from my mind's eye "12 days of xmas " line:
i used the new (nov 7) sketch at stuck on u sketches for my layout, it's a good 'un, don't you think?
also, almost every single element on my card was a pre-cut "leftover" from something else, found in the baggie of miscellaneous cool stuff... in which i store things i've cut out but not used. i got the mini polaroid, the flowers, the square-w-rounded-corners clouds piece, and the strip of pink border-punched paper all from there, woohoo!
for additional examples of meritorious stash usage, not to mention some downright AWESOME cards, check out my lovely DT sisters' work at shopping our stash! ♥
*also, i think we'll be able to tell pretty quickly this week who really read the description and who saw just the "xmas stamps" part on a challenge aggregator site and linked up without even looking at the DT cards; so that will be fun, lol! :)
**yes, i am pitiful, what can i say?
