Shopping Our Stash #138 Oh Shiny!

HOOOORAY for Tuesday!! Time for another SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge. This week's theme is "Oh Shiny!!!" Yes I do frequently mutter that when wandering through craft stores...but really...it is also the theme of this week's challenge, use something that shimmers, shines or sparkles.

I am a sparkle girl myself, I am all about the bling!! I knew right away what stash items I wanted to use, blinged out border strips from Michaels (yes I bought 4 rolls!!) and some glittery paper from a 2012 Valentine themed card kit.

I have only used this stamp and die set once before, contemplating whether or not to post the card I made on my blog because it has the "F" word in it...will ponder on that while you check out the card for this challenge...

I fussy cut the take out box and chopsticks...grrrrrrrrrr...luckily there is a die for the fortune and the cookie.

Pink,kraft & white cardstock (Recollections)
Bling border strip (Michaels)
Tuxedo black ink (Momento)
Glittery design paper (from a stack pack that I can't remember the name of)
Small heart punch (SU)
Good Fortune stamp & die set (lawn fawn)

Be sure to visit the blogs of my Shopping Our Stash teammies and show them some crafty love!!! Hope you'll play along with us this week!

Cute and fun Valentine. Love the bling strip - I used it too (but I only got 3 rolls at Ms(maybe I should go back and get more {hee-hee}))

oooooooooooh! love this! love, love, love that fortune stamp set and you've used it perfectly... plus... the more bling the better as far as i'm concerned!!! :)

ps: if you're on the fence about posting the "other" card you could backdate the post and link to it from a new post in which you essplain the "f word" being involved. then ppl only click over if they WANT to see it, and no one feels "blindsided"! (then come leave me a link b/c i'm dying to see it!!!) :) :) :)

Great project! Nice CAS design! Love the sentiment coming out of the fortune cookie.

I refuse to buy rolls of bling, so MORE FOR YOU! And between you and me? I sometimes have better luck fussy-cutting than lining up stamps with their dies. I might have issues.

And which 'F' word might that be? Fun? Frolic? Fu Man Chu? Do tell! :D I'm with Lauren, and I WANT TO SEE IT not that you've spilled da beans. heh heh

What a great card! Although there's another one you made that I like that much more... ;) And what's with dies for only half the stamps? Sheesh.
