Stamping Challenges

Finally, time to play with my stamps. I belong to three forums at splitcoast stampers.( One is a Stamp 2 Spend challenge. The idea is to be mindful of what we're spending compared to what we're actually using. Its much easier to find time to buy pretty new toys and bright colored papers than it is to make the time to actually use them. In Stamp 2 Spend, we hope to find a balance. So, out came my scraps and Valu cardstock Iwant to use up for these two cards.
One of the other forums has begun a kind f Use It challenge. With this challenge, we are encouraged to go back through and find stamps (parts of or whole sets) we haven't used. We just had to have them, but there they sit, ink-free. The stamps I used in both of these cards fall into this challenge. They are part of a retired hostess set from Stampin' Up calle Sculpted Style. In the case of this set, it might not have been one I 'had to have' but more of it was the best of the Level 1 Hostess set that fit my tastes or I didn't already have.
So here's a challenge for you...
What stamp have you never used or haven't used since it's initial purchase use? Pull it out, give it some ink and link us to your creation.
Creative Blessings!


  1. Nice cards! I do a genealogy blog at

    I considered writing one about crafting....hmmmmmm.

  2. You should, Alice. I've checked out your blog. Like the bike.:-)

    Though I've left the geneology work to my older sister, I get into history when researching my novels. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Pretty cards -- you do nice work.

  4. Thanks Holly. I hope you'll drop by again.
