CAS Challenge at Outlawz

Hi blog friends....guess what??? It's "National Clean Week" and there's a new challenge over at the CAS Challenge at Outlawz and Teresa has offered this challenge

 That week happens to be “National Cleaning Week” so lets use something old in your stash. You know the stuff that needs to be gone through to make room for the fun new stuff. Use it on a card or project it needs some love too.

I used an older stamp set from Gina K Designs called "Hugs and Prayers" by Nina Brackett.  I think that this set has been discontinued, because I couldn't find it in the stamp set list. I haven't used this stamp in qiute some time and it was begging for some attention.   

It also worked along with another challenge from Heather Telford for One Layer Wednesday (OLW) called "Inspired by Packaging"

My packaging inspiration came from a Hero Arts Ink Pad here

These are two super fun challenges to play along with this week. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week.

I have a lot of buttons I've collected over the years and I used three of these adorable rose looking buttons to help me embellish this card.  I love the look they gave this card.

The stamp being featured this week is Daffodils #904-L

Believe me when I tell you this is a fabulous stamp!!!  Color it, paper piece it, use it naked as it will LOVE it!!

Here's a card I made using this stamp.

The sentiment stamps is #1303-E and I cut it so I could reposition it as I wanted. 

I love the results of the stamping, coloring and then highlihting with a white pen on kraft card stock.  Using a Copic blender created a super outline of the image after it was all colored.  Makes it look like it's popping off the page yet it's one dimensional. 

Get on over to The House grab the code and get this stamp for yourself, you will LOVE it!!!

Have a GREAT week and thank you so much for stopping by!!!
