Shopping Our Stash # 312 - You Light Up My Life



Greetings pals!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew.

This week we want you to light up our life. Anything with a light bulb will do - a lamp, flashlight, lantern, or just a plain old light bulb.

In my head I had planned to use the cute little light bulb in the We Totally Click stamp set by Paper Smooches. Clearly I don't look at my stamp sets closely enough - it also has a super cute lamp (which apparently I have never used...until now).

I also knew I wanted to make a fooler card, where the base is just a piece of cardstock and the card is actually the smaller folded piece on top...then the image is stamped on the inside of the card that you see through the punched window in the front.


Shite I used to make this card:

  • Polka dot cardstock (Recollections)
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Black cardstock (Recollections)
  • We Totally Click stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Squeezed Lemonade distress marker (Tim Holtz)
  • 2" circle punch (Marvy)
  • 2 1/2" circle punch (SU)
  • Washi tape
As always, we would love for you to play along with us.

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG.

While you are there, please share some crafty loves with the rest of the crew.

Shopping Our Stash #311 - CAS



Hello crafty pals!

Thanks for coming by today to check out the newest challenge from the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew!!

In honour of National Simplicity Day on July 12, our challenge to you this week is to keep it clean and simple.

I got a little carried away making my CAS cards and might have made a more than a few...hey...at least I got to practice my super not so great masking skills!

On the first card I used the large oval punch to make a mask, the second one I just cut. Both times I used a post it note to make the masks, that way it stays in place but doesn't stick or wreck the paper underneath when you pull it off!

Have I mentioned how much I completely ADORE the bright colours of distress inks...carved pumpkin, picked raspberry, twisted citron, wilted violet and peacock feathers together...come on now...it just doesn't get any better than that!!
