Shopping Our Stash #234 - Something New

Hello again crafty friends! Thanks for coming back to check out the new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge.

This week the crew want to see something new on your project. 

Did you get some craft supplies over the holidays? Have something new in your stash that you've never used? Have you been just itching to try something new in your crafting?? Well friend, here is the perfect chance to show us what you've got!

To fully embrace the challenge (you know, I don't like to half ass challenges, always use your full ass in everything you do!!) I used new supplies AND tried something new.

My new supplies are from a card kit featuring the "Hello Winter" collection by Echo Park.

My new thing I tried was using distress paints and stains on chipboard.

I used new things and stash things on my card, so I am also going to link up to the JINGLE BELLES "Something Old and Something New" challenge...just under the wire, the challenge closes tomorrow!!

New shite I used to make this card:

  • Hello Winter "Winter Snowfall" design paper (Echo Park)
  • Hello Winter die cuts (Echo Park)
  • Washi tape (Echo Park)
  • Chipboard snowflakes
Old shite I used to make this card:
  • Broken China distress paint (Tim Holtz)
  • Brushed Pewter distress stain (Tim Holtz)
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Bling (Dollarama)
The SHOPPING OUR STASH crew would love for you to play along with us. Check out all the details for the challenge on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG and while you are there please show the rest of the crew some crafty lovin'.

Until next time...

Cool card (no pun intended)! Those snowflakes are quite snazzy but I'm excited by the use of washi tape to hold your main image in place. There's a completely obvious and simple trick that somehow slipped my brain!

Chana Harris said...

This is so nice, Donna! The paper combinations are fabs and I adore your bear...so cute! Great balance between new and stash!

How sweet is that little polar bear ... so glad you started 2016 with the jingle belles.

Carol L said...

That new paper looks so pretty, and I love the little bear too! I'm loving the way you used the washi tape which enhances the card so perfectly! Nice job using old & new!

Pia S said...

How sweet and love the wintery look and great use of washi, have plenty of those tapes and can always do with some inspiration on how to use them...
