Welcome to the First Challenge of 2022 on Shopping Our Stash!!

Happy New Year and welcome to the first challenge of the year at Shopping Our Stash!! because it's right after the holidays we have an easy prompt for you this time.....Something that begins with the letter S that sure give you a big range of techniques, folds, etc. 

Before I get to my card please welcome 4 new design team members Anna, Stephanie, Alison and Deb check out their blogs and leave them some love.

I had lots of ideas for a S card, first it was a shaker card, then I thought Slimline card and I knew I didn't want to make a Holiday/Winter card so didn't want to build a snowman so here is what I came up with.

I covered all bases, Square, silhouette, sunrise, skyline. I did some stash busting too, the patterned paper is from a 12 X 12 paper pad I bought 5 years ago at Dollarama and the "enamel" dots are really nice and flat plastic dots from Dollar Tree, there are 5 or 6 colours on a package. 

Sorry for the fuzzy picture I was in a hurry and must have moved. I didn't put outside or inside sentiments as I wasn't sure what I was using it for, the card can be used for Birthday or get well, even a thinking of you card, I will finish it when the need arises. 

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to head over to the Main Blog and check out the awesome S cards the rest of the design team have made.

And you are right, Barbara, this shaker frame was so darn old, it's been tossed around for a long time until I finally used it, thank goodness.
And yes, I'm grateful for Tombo glue and sticky strips.

You've created a really dramatic look here with your dark skyline. Love the colours of the sky, they give a wonderful focal point x
