Use Your Stash July Challenge - Use Your Stamps!

Using Clearsnap Chestnut Roan (my all-time fave ink) I stamped the turtle onto Scenic Route Asheland Avenue from the Ashville line, added some bling from The Paper Studio and then cut him out. I adhered him to a quote card I cut from Fancy Pants Sweet Spring line - I love those cards! I stamped the Bazzill card base and the Prima flower with a flower from KI Memories Blooms stamp set. I adhered the flower with a pop dot and added bling to center as well. Turtle stamp is from the Kim Hughes Collection of Cornish Heritage Farms. Size is 4x6.

I stamped Hot Off the Press Flight of Fancy butterfly stamps onto embossed swirl Doodlebug paper to add some texture. I then bent the wings slightly and added pop dots for more dimension. The other stamp I used was the sentiment and that is from the Kim Hughes Collection of Cornish Heritage Farms. Paper is Rusty Pickle Pop Star and bling is from The Paper Studio. Size is 5x7

I made these for the July Challenge over at Use Your Stash. The turtle and the sentiment stamp I got in a RAK (along with some other cool goodies) from Kim Hughes. Be sure to check out her blog. Her stamps are so adorable and I see that she is coming out with a cool paper line as well. I wish I had one teaspoon of her talent!

I've already got some other ideas for that turtle floating around in my head including a card that says - You're a Hero in a Half Shell!

that is my absolute favorite ink also - I have pads current - a girl can't have enough of that - wouldn't want to run out.
