Tangled Up in Creativity September 2011 Challenge

Hi Everyone.  Well, it's the 2nd Monday of the month and time for another Tangled Up in Creativity Blog Group Challenge. 

We all like new craft stuff and sometimes the craft supplies that we have had for a while get buried at the back of the shelf never to see the light of day for some time and in some cases never.  We simply forget that we have them.

So, my challenge for you is to make a card using both new and old supplies (something that you find on the .  back of the shelf)

My card is a Christmas card using new products out of the Holiday Mini.  The Stitched Stocking set is so cute and has many possibilities, the mini jingle bells, (how adorable), the Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin ribbon and finally the DSP, Holly Berry Bouquet.  The forgotten supply is the Champagne Glass Glitter, which I haven't used since last Christmas.  The glitter is fabulous because over time it will tarnish leaving an aged look.  Perfect for all those vintage Christmas decorations.

Stamps: Stitched Stockings (c – 123784 $25.95 $, w – 123782, $33.95 $, 34. 5 Holiday Mini), Petite Pairs (c -122497 $25.95, w – 122495 $35.95, p. 164, 2011-2012 IB&C),

Paper: White Naturals, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Holly Berry Bouquet DSP

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Big Shot, Scallop Die, Stocking Builder Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label  Punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Champagne Glass Glitter, Espresso Baker’s Twine, Mini Jingle Bells, Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin Ribbon

And the great thing, I have one Christmas card done.

I hope you enjoy the challenge and until next time.....

  7. I love this challenge Karen! I may have to enter, I sure have the unused stash! Your card is very pretty, I love that DSP and the stocking, I think I need these!

  8. Karen, the above comment was mine, I am having problems with commenting on my laptop & Google.

  9. Great challenge Karen....and what a fabulous card! I also have that glass glitter than I bought and have NEVER used, so I might have to pull that out and use it on my challenge card! =)

  10. Karen such a cute stocking card. The glitter bling is perfect to showcase it too.
    I have SO MUCH stuff and unopened items I "just had to have" it almost a sickness!
    My New Year's resolution is to SLOW down the impulse buying! Hugs.


I am grateful for all comments and thanks for taking the time to leave one.
