Default F4A454 - "Love Your Stamps" - 11/02/18

F4A454 - "Love Your Stamps" - 11/02/18

Ok ... Let's be honest. We ALL have ... ahem ... at least ONE or TWO stamp sets that we HAD to have ... that have NEVER seen an ink pad!!! I don't even want to TRY to estimate how many un-inked stamp sets I have in my stash. It's EMBARRASSING. But I KNOW I am in good company!

The challenge today is to pull out a stamp set that you purchased over a month ago (even if it's YEARS old ... that's the beauty of this challenge!) that you have NEVER used! I'll bet you will all be wondering why once you have finished making a card with it! This is going to be a FUN gallery!

My Samples:

Keyword: F4A454

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You�re done!

Smile F4A454 Holiday Best Wishes

love the idea of using stamps that are gathering some dust! I used a sentiment from the Favorite Greetings set from SU (1996)
Here's my holiday card using some holiday foliage- evergreen branches and a holly and berries pairing. Added a gift card for my DS. Here's Holiday Best Wishes

Fun challenge! I've been on a shopping frenzy that past few months but haven't had time to keep up with the new stuff that's been rolling in. I have plenty of stamps AND dies to choose from. Will definitely ink a few of these stamps up this weekend.

Default F4A454 MIX301 Mixed Media Holiday

So many stamps, so little time! Hence, one reason for the plight of our ilk! I went with a winter theme and used 2 sets of unused stamps. A GREAT challenge, Wendy and one that I combined with the Mix301.

Silly me, I thought I'd have a hard time finding a never-used stamp. I am usually so eager to get my new stuff that I use it once, then put it away and never use it again. But it didn't take me long at all to find "Remarkable You". Yes, I used one stamp from it when I first got it, but the rest of the set was untouched. So that was my starting point to create this card. And yes, I love my stamps. Thanks for a fun challenge!

Here's my contribution. I have always loved this set, but only used it...once? twice? And I bought it new several years ago when it first came out!

The stamp used here was a prize - one I chose because I loved it!

Here is a card I made using stamps that have not been used before. Parts of each set have been used, but not these specific stamps.

I'm a F4A challenge newbie and I was excited to jump in when I read about using unloved stamp sets. I found a few, LOL, and gave three sets a little love and ink for this card:

Thanks for such a fun challenge, Wendy! I loved it the moment I read it ... but of course the 'tortoise' stamper came out strong to make sure nothing happened in just one day ... or 2 ... or ....

Thanks for the encouragement to get out old stamps. I've got just a few of those in my stash I've had this Christmas set for a few months. Here's my card, DEC18VSNMINI1 Bringing Home the Christmas Tree. I combined a few challenges.

I am not at all happy with the card I created, however, but to be a team player I'll throw it in the hat anyhow: :0)

Indeed, you are in very good company! I used two sort of old stamp (I bought them last spring in March 2018, though I have others uninked and even older than these!

One is Stampin' Up's "Lovely Wishes" (2018 Occasions) small flower to make the floral framing, and the other is a Our Daily Bread Design "All Mother's) sentiment stamp.


Here is my card: Thinking You Much Better Real Soon!
