SHOPPING OUR STASH #515 -Put Your Best Face Forward

 Hello, Happy Creatives!

Here's hoping that everyone had more roses than thorns this week in crafting and in life!

I like the challenge theme this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash!

"Put Your Best Face Forward"

Please include a human face in your project!

I actually ended up creating two cards for this challenge!  In the first project, you cannot see the face, so...  But, about three months ago, I die-cut and colored this little ballerina.  I was really just testing the die.  I purchased it online at Temu about 8 months ago but never used it.  I had her taped to the iPad on my craft table.  I just knew the opportunity to use her would eventually present itself.  There is an entire story to this.  Watch my YouTube video! :D)

One Step At A Time


They are a little difficult to see, but I stamped musical scales onto the green DSP.  The DSP is about five years old.  I got it at Michaels  It is Core' dinations'  "Light Green Crosshatch."  IRL, The design in the paper mixed with the musical scales has a very nice visual impact.  

The circle layer just below the image has been in my stash for over a year.  I had some teardrop ink pads that were drying up and I decided that I would just stamp on a piece of scrap paper there was no rhyme or reason to my stamping, but the end result was stunning.  I punched various shapes to be used in future projects.
I always keep the inside of my cards simple.  I know people like to write notes on them.
I went to the SOS DT Blog to check on the next challenge!  My mouth just dropped!  This card is perfect for two of the upcoming challenges.  Oh, well, I will think of something between now and when those projects are due!
We Look forward to seeing your "Best Face" cards!
