Hello everyone. It's been fun getting back into stamping but at the same time I find myself struggling for ideas on cards since I've been absent for so long. One of my good stamping friends, Leslie Miller, (Running with Scissors) posted a card on a blog called, NBUS.
Now you might be wondering just what NBUS means so simply stated it stands for: Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. I don't know about you but I have plenty of papers, dies, stamps that have sat in drawers not being shown any stamping/crafting love so I thought this challenge would be right up my alley. So here is my first submission for this challenge.
For this card I used some Dies from Cuttlebug that I had never used before (leaves and acorn), Some patterned paper from We Are Memory Keepers, the sentiment stamp from Unity and ribbon from Amuse Studio.
Card Stock colors: Chocolate Chip (retired SU). More Mustard (retired SU), Really Rust (retired SU), Sage Shadow (retired SU) and Very Vanilla. The patterned paper was from a collection called, Maple Grove sold by WeAreMemoryKeepers and is also retired.
I also used Oval Dies. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink and I dabbed some Chocolate Chip ink on the embossed acorn. The acorn was mounted on the card stock with mounting tape.
If you have any questions about this card feel free to e-mail me.
Thank you for stopping by.
