This week at Just Add Ink the challenge is to make a card with something you’ve had in your stash for ages and haven’t used.
In my stash was a beautiful roll of marina mist satin ribbon that hadn’t been touched and so I decided to make another one of those ribbon flowers with it.
I thought I would take the opportunity to use some retiring things too. Sadly this ribbon is retiring as are the two stamp sets I’ve used on the card. I used white craft ink to stamp the flourish from friends 24-7 and the words are from a hostess set called Apple Blossoms. Sad to see them go :( But I will have lots of lovely new sets to play with very soon :)
Stamps : friends 24-7, apple blossoms, very vintage wheel
Card : espresso, marina mist, white, crumb cake
Ink : white, crumb cake, espresso, marina
Other : marina mist satin ribbon, sticky strip, circle punch, espresso thin taffeta ribbon, crochet trim, big shot, square scallop, neutral brad, vintage brad, white pen
I love how the ribbon flower turned out in marina mist, I will have to make some more of them.
I’m sure we’re all guilty of buying “stuff” for our craft and then not using it. Please have a look at what the rest of the design team at JAI have been hoarding. Then, as shocking as this sounds, I challenge you to actually take something from your stash and MAKE something with it.
