***WINNER*** SEPTEMBER 2017 Use Your Stash Challenge

Postby Monroe1218 » Thu Sep 07, 2017 11:02 am

***WINNER*** There were 13 awesome entries this month!  I loved how everyone used different stamps and inks for this challenge!  Using the random.org generator, the winning entry was #2!  Loreen!  I'll get your gift card to you in the next day or two!  Thanks to everyone for playing!!


Whoops!  I went on vacation the last of August and forgot that I haven't posted the September challenge!  So, here goes!

For this month, I want you to dig out your stamps and inks! Embossing powder, too if you do that sort of thing.  The challenge is to use at least 2 different stamps and 2 different inks on your project.  Alphabet stamps, background stamps, image stamps - the ink does have to be used with the stamps for this challenge. You could still use it to distress edges or something, but that won't count towards the challenge.  

Here are the rules:
May be paper or digital - layouts, cards and other projects welcome!
Must be a new submission
May be combined with one other challenge that allows
Must be posted to this thread by September 30, 2017 at 1159pm EST
Up to 3 submissions per person

I use my stamps a lot, but the different colors of ink added some challenge. (I own dozens of colors of ink, but stamp most things in black). I stamped the grapevine, the cup, and the stars.


combined with the manufacturer challenge.

Here is my submission. A couple years ago, on a road trip,  I took these photos of a lone cow in the middle of nowhere, and believe me , you can see all ways a Long  ways ! I thought This Fancy Pants paper is perfect for the photos ! The paper looks just like the scenery where we were !


I used some  olive green ink from stampin' up and Black distresss ink and 4 different stamps !! Great challenge! As you can see I don't use these stashed stamps & ink much.

I used two texture stamps with two different colors for this challenge which is out of my comfort zone. I also used the ink in a few other ways including distressing and inking the edges.

Thank you for this Challenge! I need to be Using some stash !
