Card for Anne's Hoarders Challenge

Share Your Heart!
Three Hero Arts stamps used - that were never inked!
The background heart
The owl in the middle
and
The sentiment
(But they are brand new! I don't think they count!)



I made this card for Anne's Hoarder's Challenge. Tonight is the deadline! I think we need a procrastinator's challenge as well:)


Yes, I am a hoarder..
I have boatloads of stuff in my scrap/crap room!

Anne's challenge has a list of about 15 items.. This card has a few of those goodies on it..

1. See those hearts? Raw Chipboard...from a Variety Pack, of Heidi Swapp... Never before opened!

Well, until I made this card..

2. I painted them with Worn Lipstick Crackle Paint..another item on Anne's List, and added some matching distress stickles.. Oh it sure dressed them up:)

3. Ink Pad never used: The 'fuchsia pink stazon' that the owl was stamped with...

4. And, the stamps were never used before as well.. but they are new... probably not real candidates!

5. Patterned Paper: Basic Grey!

6. Ribbon: Doodlebug Designs

Other supplies used: Copics, Spicas, WorldWin DoubleMates cardstock, SU White Craft Ink, Jet Black Stazon..

Thanks Anne, for the challenge!

This is a really pretty card Andi. I love the colors and the simplicity of the design. However, I am so out of the loop on all the terminology! I feel like an old foggey living in Florida... oh wait, what? Anyway, you're so talented.

Oooh, that's a favorite card...of all the cards you have made, this may be my new fav! He's so cute.
I hear ya, I have TONS of scrap stuff. So this week I have been purging, and I'm giving it to a friend who just started scrapping. I am doing lots of digital stuff, and have to face it that some of my stash I will never use. I even had Club Scrap stamps! Sooo old. I still love to scrap with paper, just had to clear some stuff out.

SUCH a cute card! Sigh...I miss crafting. I've completely missed the valentine gig due to studies. Oh, well...there's always next year.
