Shopping Our Stash - What's The Good Word

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Welcome to another fun Tuesday at Shopping Our Stash! 
What's The Good Word - Use a Single Word Die Cut
I actually made two cards for this challenge.  I mis-read the challenge the first time.  I thought we were supposed to use a single word, so I made the kraft "Love" card.  Then when I went to the blog to upload my project I realized I was supposed to use a die cut!  SMH.  
I find myself still playing around with black and white and using the die cut negative seemed the perfect focal for this creation! The ribbon on this project is almost ten years old.  I found it at Michaels during their after X-mas sale.  I planned to use it on a jewelry box, but that project never materialized!  
Everything in this project is stash. I have been exceptionally good about not buying craft supplies. My little savings account is growing! I plan to cancel a few subscriptions and really devote myself to just using what I have.

Stash Materials Used:
Bazzill - White Card Stock:  5 years old
Ribbon - 10 years old
Photo Corners - 6 years old
Chalk Color Sticks - 8 years old
Thanks Die - Memory Box - 5 years old
Flamingo Die - Echo Park Designer Dies - 2 years old
Embossing Folder - WRMK Next Level "Quilted" - 6 months old

Thanks for Stopping By!

This is call "forced creativity."  I created another project and when I went to post it, found that a teamie had already posted a project that was almost identical.  PANIC!  I actually like this design better!  Kismet!

Shoipping Our Stash #263 - Silhouettes

Hello, Crafty Peeps,

This is a quick card I put together for the challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash.  Our theme is "Silhouettes."   My hands are giving me a few little problems, so I couldn't craft anything too involved!
For some odd reason, the word Silhouette conjured up images of little black, white, and grey squares.  So, I grabbed some white card stock and used my TCW mini cubist stencil to create a pattern.  This was much more fun than searching through stacks and stacks of paper and 6x6 pads!

Materials Used:
Neenah White Linen Card Stock
Hot Off The Press Stamp Set - Feathers
Recollections Stamp Set - Fairies
Memento Dye Ink - Black
Ranger Distress Inks:  Black Soot and Hickory Smoke

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will accept the challenge this week and show us your work!  Click HERE to go to Shopping Our Stash!
