Use Your Stash Wednesday Challenge

Hello.... Happy Wednesday everyone!  My name is Lori and I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be a part of the Design Team here at Imagine, Create, Share.  I am truly passionate about papercrafting and I am thrilled to be able to share some of my projects here with you.

Since it is Use Your Stash Wednesday,  I decided I wanted to create my card using some old paper stacks I have had for a long time, plus a couple of old Cricut cartridges as well. My anniversary is just around the corner, so I thought I should make my DH a card.

Here is the paper I started with:

DCWV Flower Shower stack
Stampin Up 6x6 Sampler pack
Stampin Up Kraft and Whisper White
Bazzill textured brown paper (not in photo)

Here are the cuts I used:

Cartridges used:
Card base and layers:  A Child's Year
Heart: Wedding (extra white hearts were used to make the heart thicker like chipboard)
Happy Anniversary:  MS All Occasion Cake Art

And now the final product:

The final touches:

Brads:  Stampin Up Antique Brass Hodgepodge hardware
Charm and hemp twine: unknown
Gelly Roll white jel pen

So, for today's Use Your Stash Challenge, make an anniversary card (or an I love you card) using at least two patterned papers from your stash. If you want an added challenge, make it a shaped card.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are able to join in on the challenge.
