Craft Your Stash Project #1

Hey cardmaking friends.  I’m starting a new series Craft Your Stash Project #1.  I’m sure many of you can relate to having a rather large bin of purchased but unused products….yes, I’m guilty.  So, in order to work my way through this bin, I’m going to start this series and share it with you.  Hopefully it will keep me on task, remind you of a great product you may have in your stash, and maybe even incorporate a few technique videos to share.

Craft Your Stash Project #1

Start by using a blending brush to blend together Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg and Salvaged Patina over the entire card front.

Die cut the Oval Frame from White Cardstock and attach it to the card front using small pieces of foam tape to elevate it slightly.

Next, use the Misti stamping tool to stamp the flower in Memento Black Ink onto Hammermill White card stock.

Finally, color with copic markers (Listed in the PDF File Below).

Adding the Sentiment:

Next, Add a white heat embossed sentiment stamped on a scrap of black card stock.

and Finally, embellish with End of the Rainbow Sequins

I’m sure this stamp set will make it into a future Craft your Stash episode, as there are 4 beautiful images in this stamp set along with some great sentiments.

  1. I confess I’m guilty too. Thanks for the push to take the time to use those stash items just waiting to be used! This lovely make inspires me to get busy and take the time to use those neglected items in my stash.

  2. Absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! Thanks for reminding me to use items I haven’t touched!!!!!! I am working on one now, it’s an older stamp but a favorite!

  3. Putting my hand up over here too – I have plenty of unused stuff! but WOW, Sandi! Your card is stunning- that frame, the beautiful pink flower and the gorgeous background – the colours are fabulous and the whole card is an absolute beauty. I need that frame!
