Sketch Challenge with a Twist- GD post for Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge

Welcome to the  Challenge #6

For Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog!

Use the sketch below as inspiration for creating your project. You can modify the sketch to create a card, scrapbook layout, altered canvas, mini book cover, and so on. Now, for the TWIST! You must search your hoard and find one item that is OLD and one item that is NEW and use them BOTH on your project. Show us how you combine older items from your stash with something recently purchased.

Please note: you may change the elements of the sketch design. The flowers can become gears, stars, or a bow. The banners can become buttons or a folded edge. Please feel to rotate or flip the sketch. The sketch is just a guide to your creativity.

One talented participant will receive this prize, donated by Hampton Art!

Here is what I created for the sketch challenge..

  The new in my card is the stamp from Justrite stamps- Butterfly vines Background and the old are the flowers from my stash which I have been hoarding since long!!

For this card, I used the various background stamps .The tone on tone look is my favourite and I tried this for all the three panels. I love how the white flowers go with the colours!

Pick a stamp, Any stamp! - GD post for Craft Hoarders Anonymoys Challenge


Welcome! This is Challenge # 5 for Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog !

You don't have to be a card maker to hoard stamps! With the popularity of pocket-style scrapbooking (Project Life and Photo Freedom) and the explosion of journaling stamps on the market, many scrapbookers have also become stamp hoarders. Digital stamps are more popular than ever. I am sure that most of us have at least one stamp in our stash! You may "collect" wood mounted stamps, clear stamps, cling rubber, or even digital stamps! Get one out, dust it off, and make it the STAR of your project! We want to see a stamp (sentiment, word art, image, etc.) on your project! Feel free to use more than one stamp, but you must have AT LEAST ONE stamped item on your project. 

One talented participant will receive this prize, donated by Hampton Art! The GoGo Crafter Rolling Tote is collapsible, allowing it to be shipped and stored flat. It comes with two wheels and a sturdy retractable handle for transporting. It also has interior dividers that are adjustable and removable, two interior pockets, three exterior side pockets for supplies, and a zippered front area. This tote can hold enough items for an evening crop or be a helpful "companion" at trade shows or expos


Also note that the prizes are shipped internationally so all of you crafters do participate.

Here is my project.


 For this card here I simply stamped the background stamp in black inks and distressed the two panels with black soot (back panel) and shabby shutters distress inks(front panel). The fabric flowers are handmade using velvet fabric scraps.
Challenge Rules are HERE. Make sure to link your project using the Link Tool on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.
