Default WT508 - To The Post (12/04/14)

Hello and Happy Thursday, Friends!

I'm back with another challenge from the Ways To Use It team! We are drawing ever closer to the Christmas holiday and it's time to get those cards and packages to the post office. Today's challenge is to use postage or postage marks on your project.

I have attached a couple of samples today. Sabrina is helping me out with a fabulous card. Remember to use the keyword, WT508, when uploading your project so that we can all see your creation. It helps if you link it up back here too. You can view the entire gallery for this challenge HERE.


Need help linking your project? Follow these instructions!

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

WT508: One of my 'postage stamp' I had was this one for Snail Mail. I got it two years ago and probably only used it once or twice ... this was the perfect challenge to use it again. Thanks!

Oh my goodness I had to race to throw together a birthday card this morning to get it out in the mail before I ran to the shower for work. I used the sketch challenge this week and combined it with the ways to use it challenge for today to do a fast card. Then when I got done realized I put the top on the wrong side of the card. LOL! I do that a lot so I cut the card front and glued it on a white card stock to get it in the mail. LOL! Here is my card:

Heart WT508 True Blue Friend

I used SU's Punches Three for my sentiment, and added a fussy cut flower for my central image. Used a flag stamp, and finished with a silver cord bow, and a red and blue bow combo for my vertical border. Here's True Blue Friend

Heart WT508 Santa's Bears

Toni- awesome challenge, thanks! I have been working on a Christmas quilt (see background) and took a break to make this card- already had the leaves in my stash- ran them through with an ef- then added this fabric ornament- a gift- and added a Santa stamp. Done! Here's Santa's Bears

I started to make a card with the idea of this challenge, but seeing the "to-from" stamp, I felt inspired to leave it as a gift tag instead of turning it into a card.
