{ September Happiness Giveaway }

**This post will remain the first post until the deadline of this months Challenge. Please scroll down for new posts**


I have finally got around to deciding on this months Challenge. It struck me the other day when I sat down to stamp. I have soooo many stamps that I bought cause I liked or loved and had to have them and then...nothing...they have been sitting in the box never to be used. Well it is high time I start using some of these stamps...don't ya think? Well for this months Challenge I want you to create a card using a stamp or stamp set that you bought and have not used in 'forever' or have never picked up since you bought it! Yup, time to pull out those neglected stamps and show them some lovin'.

Deadline is 9:00pm MST September 30th. You can enter as many times as you like, but you MUST use a different stamp set with each entry. Entries are to be added to the comments of this post with a link to your creation or email me a photo if you do not have a blog or gallery. The winner will receive a SURPRISE package of various items from my stash, including stamped images, Designer Papers, Primas, Ribbons and embellishments. To get you started here is my own creation. This stampset was a Hostess set from last years SU catty...Two way blossoms...I really liked this set when I saw it and thought there were so many great things I could do with it...yet it has been sitting in my stash of about 5 months and never inked!! I must say now that I have used it...I LOVE IT! I will definitely be using this set more now! Hope you like it...now go show those stamps some lovin'!

Oh gosh, this would be a perfect challenge for me. I have many stamps that are sitting and waiting to be used. I guess I'll start tomorrow and see which stamp I can dig up under my pile of many unused stamps!

This is a great challenge Tracy, I will try and play (moving ya know!) I will at least make one so that I can use a set that is lonely and seldom used (I have a few of those - *wink*)

What a beautiful card Tracy. I have a ton of stamps just like that; I bought them with the best of intentions but then. . .nothing! BTW I love your new blog layout/colors!!

Kimberly said...

I told you I wouldn't delay this time. I used this set once last year and that was it. So being that the holidays are coming up I knew I had to drag it out.
Well here it is:

Gorgeous card, Tracy, love the layout and the colours. That's a beautiful stamp and I luv the DP, the Textile embossing and the touch of bling! Great job! :)

I used the limited supplies challenge on SCS for my card and knew I needed to link it to a blog challenge, but couldn't remember whose blog - talk about brain dead! Here's my card:

I've just stumbled into your blog and LOVE this card! I don't have time to participate in your challenge by tomorrow but it is a great one!

Jenny Pitcairn said...

What a great challenge! This card uses not one but two sets that have been sitting around idle since I bought them. The images are the Autumn set by Kodomo, and the sentiment is by Scrappy Cats.
