I have been seriously trying to use up some of the supplies that I have here in the house. I have several things that I have never used and lots that I used most of and just had a partial package left. Stuff that I still like even, but things that may have gotten shoved to the back of a drawer and forgotten about. All those things are taking up some serious room! We are thinking about moving my craft room to a different area of the house and I am trying to consolidate before then to make it a little easier. If you want to make something cool using only items from your "stash" leave me a link and I will check it out. Thanks for dropping by! I love reading all your comments they really make my day.

I was in a mood to challenge myself tonight! I decided I was going to use all supplies from my stash that I have had for a while and either not used or that I haven't used in a while. I pulled this stamp from Rubber Stampede out because it had never seen ink before and it has been sitting on the shelf for a very long time. I am not sure of the maker of this paper because it was also in one of the stacks of paper that no longer has a cover. I cut one piece to the standard card front size with my stripes going vertical and then a small piece with horizontal stripes and applied that to a back piece of card stock. The acrylic drops were clear but I colored them with a black Copic marker. The flowers are Petaloo and the buttons in the center of the them are from Making Memories and I have had these at least since I first started stamping and making cards, if not before! Can you believe I used flowers on cards two days in a row? I can't! I really do like the look of flowers on projects, but I am usually not happy with the placement of them and end up taking them off. I think I just have a thing about flowers; floral arranging is one of the crafts that I have never really done because I am never happy with my arrangements.
