Shopping Our Stash #303 ~~Project Runway.

Hello there, it's Tuesday and time for a new Challenge at Shopping Our Stash and this week the challenge is brought to you from Mimi!!! and the challenge is to use fabric stash.  I dug deep for this challenge and btw it's a "two-fer" , I made TWO cards for your viewing pleasure. So without anymore delay here is the first one.

The background was made with fabric tape (must have been before washi tape) I have had it for over 5 years and I used most of the roll. The stamp I used is from House Mouse Designs called Inner Tube Nap, the Happy Birthday is cut with an Impression Obsession die.

Since there was a seashell theme happening I just had to use some Seashell brads from the

On to the second card

I kinda went freestyle with this card so I could feature the silk flower (there were two in the package) I received it from a Secret Sister swap and the date on the back of the package was 2005, so I'm shopping my stash big time. I made a Birthday card with the patterned paper so had some leftovers so using a one inch punch I made 8 patterned and 8 plain, did double sided tape on a piece of cardstock and very carefully lined them up and attached them, I then ran the finished piece through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Then layered it on green and a blue postage stamp die (unmarked) The Happy Birthday is also an unmarked die. 

Close up of the silk flower, finally I had a reason to spring it out of it's 2005 package.

I would like to enter this in:

Seize the Birthday and the toppings are Creatures or animals

Thanks for joining me here today and head over to the blog and see what fabric my teamies have used.

As with Donna, I'm thinking, how did I miss out on the fabric tape era? Love both cards, Barb, that is some serious patterned paper arranging on the second one.
