The theme is "Oldies But Goodies". If you're like me, I buy stamps, papers, and embellishments, and then many sit unused. For this swap, we are to create a project- a card, a 3-D item, a scrapbook layout, etc.- using stamping supplies that are at least 6-months old. I have so many stamps that have never seen ink, packs of designer paper that are unopened, and a plethora of ribbon that could use some love...and that made it really hard for me to decide which unloved items to use! But, after much deliberation, here is what I came up with:
I bought this stamp set, Sew Pretty, from Gina K, a long time ago...I had never used it for a card, even though I love it. I also bought the "Nook and Pantry" patterned paper from Basic Grey, nearly a year ago. I admit, I'm a paper hoarder. I buy pretty paper and then can't seem to bring myself to cut into it! This card is 5-1/4" square. Cardstock used: SU's Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla. Patterned paper: Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black. Embellishments: Light green Dew Drops, yellow flower from Petaloo, green satin ribbon from Offray, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon from SU. Accessories: SU's medium and scalloped oval punches, pop dots, Copic markers- E47, RV02, G31, E21, ZOTS glue dots, Alene's Jewel-It glue.
