Another card for Lisa's WT873 ~ Using It Up ~ 12/2/21 by Shoe Girl at Splitcoaststampers WTUI challenge. Like most of us, I could probably make cards all year with oddments and leftovers, and in fact I work hard it it all the time, but this is the only other card I'm uploading to the gallery.
The base layer, with the embossed and sponged strips has been in my box for YEARS. The little woodland animals were a gift from someone shopping her stash for gifts during lockdowna last year. I love them - but since the bear only had the head, I had to figure out how to use them all on one card - and that meant having the bear peeping over a wall. And they are round stamps, so you can't use a stamp positioner, I just had to hope for the best.
Stamped the wall, stamped the bear with brown ink and the bird. Masked the wall and stamped the foliage. I used an offcut of a gel print cut with deckle edge scissors for some grass, and added the fussy-cut fox and hedgehog. I added a sentiment, coloured it, edged the panel with a brown Sharpie and added it to the base.

You did a great job of getting them all onto one card. Love the expression on the bear's face. Now that I'm able to spend a bit more time in my Rubber Room I'm trying to focus on using up bits and pieces - but I'll never win the battle.
(BTW, you commented on the little mice that I've started using in my photos - they were little note holders that belonged to my Mom. She's suffering with dementia and Parkinson's Disease so the wee mice remind me of easier times.)

Nicely done stamping that bear head and adding your wall Sabrina. I love that base layer piece too. It is wonderful using stuff up from our stashes. I agree I could do this challenge every day with the bits I try using up and it has been wonderful seeing what others have in their stashes that they needed to get used up.
