JAI #82 - something from the stash

First of all, I would like to say a  big thank you to the Just Add Ink team, I have had to look through some sadly forgotten boxes for this challenge and have found some wonderful bits and pieces.  I did have my eye on a strip of patterned paper I made for a  children's birthday card last year, but when I came to use it, it had vanished from my desk (the cat probably got it, a love for shiny things).

I then discovered these gorgeous diecuts I think my mother bought for me a few years ago at a craft show.

The sentiment is a little hard to see but I didn't think the decorative corners could handle too much more embellishment, so opted for something a little more restrained (HA! glittery gold embossing powder, very restrained).

Anyway, better keep this short as it looks like we are in for our third late winter thunderstorm for today.  

What you need
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics olive
Diecuts - 5 kids and a dog
Stamp -  Stamp It
Ink - Versamark
Embossing Powder - Zing! gold glitter


  1. Those are some unique die cuts--they look great on the linen textured card stock. I think the gold embossing is the perfect final touch!

    Thanks for your concern but I live in St. louis, far from the hurricane. In fact we could use some rain! Thanks for your kind words on my blog about the jewelry. I just do them for fun as I don't know anyone that would actually wear them!

  2. Glad we inspired you to use some neglected items from your stash Cassandra. Thanks for playing with us at JAI.

  3. I think the 'use something from your stash' challenge should be set every quarter. We've all been rummaging and coming up with little gems this week.

  4. Hi Cassandra! Thanks for your comments on my blog--I've missed seeing your posts! If you are looking for inspiration, just check out your notes from the Summer Card Class that you attended. I'm currently taking the Inspiration Showcase class from Jennifer McGuire and it's incredibly inspirational! I took it because I enjoyed seeing your cards from the Summer class; I'm sure there's more where that came from!


Thanks for taking the time to comment
