Welcome to the Second Challenge at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Thanks for playing along with us the past two weeks, your Anti-Valentine cards were awesome. The Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers would like you to play along with us for the second challenge, continuing the Alphabet Soup theme the letter this challenge is U for unused. Easy this time, just use things you haven’t touched in at least 6 months and  we all have a lot of those items. Dies that have never cut, stamps never seen ink, paper you just had to have and hmm what about all that ribbon, now is your chance to give those items some LOVE.
Almost two years ago a friend made a card with a Cheery Lynn English tea party doily die and I had to have one. Well that being said it has sat in the drawer ever since until now. The cardstock I used has also been neglected, it is Cameo Coral, the stamp set I used is Roses in Winter and I haven’t used either since last summer, even the ribbon was in a bag hidden under the craft table. Now that you know all that here is my card.

There is a lot of work cutting with the die, I made sure ever corner was cut. I used wax paper around the die to make it easier to poke all the openings out. I threaded the narrow ribbon through one set of openings

The card is a 5 1/4 square card and this is the semi finished inside.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will find some time to get your crafty on and join the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers for the U is for Unused challenge. You might be crowned the Queen of Snark.

Lovely Card Barb... and I really like how your stamp has an almost watercolor look to it... I HEAR you about those Items you just HAD to HAVE and then there they sit... TFS!

Lindsey said...

Wow, Barb, this is beautiful! Just thinking of threading the ribbon through the doily makes me tired, let alone the thought of making sure all those teeny bits are poked out. :P The rose stamp is beautiful, too.

What a pretty card, lovely color and a neat cabbage rose to set it all off. Your used stash is quite something if it has these in it (I should talk...)

Sweet card.
Tip" I heard an old toothbrush will help get those tiny bits out of your die :)
