Default WT803 ~ Please Mr. Postman! (07/30/2020)

Carla, Here as this week's Ways to Use It hostess. This is my last challenge on the Ways To Use It design team. Other activities and hobbies are pulling me in a different direction. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with the team, dreaming up challenges, creating samples and working with wonderful teammates! Thank you Cathy, Lisa, Sabrina and Toni for your inspiration and camaraderie. I'll still be making cards and looking for inspiration from your challenges <>


And now on to the challenge! The first postage stamp issue of the United States was offered for sale, July 1, 1847, in New York City. I want to see how you use postage stamps on your creation. Do you have some cancelled stamps you've ripped from envelopes? I've seen some pretty cool designs. Or, you use a stamped image or try your hand at the Faux Postage technique. When you've finished your creation, upload your card with the keyword

When you've finished your creation, upload your card with the keyword WT803 and then come back and share a link here - that makes it easy for people to find your card. It's especially appreciated by the hostesses!!

If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:

1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, 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 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.

Here's the link for the WT803 gallery. Take a look and spread some love around by leaving comments for your fellow crafters!

Big thanks to the team for their lovely samples.

Smile WT803 bear postage stamp- 48 cents - and WT803 furever bear postage stamp

Carla- you will be missed, thank you for all your challenges! For today's postage stamp challenge- here's two creations- I made this bear themed stamp for my envelope using a postage stamp background, a bear stamp, and some watercolors. Added a fussy cut 48 cent in the lower right corner- and one with a furever for its postage label. Here's bear postage stamp- 48 cents and furever bear postage stamp
