A bit of NBUS


I've been playing and have some more NBUS (never before used schtuff) to share with you today.  I got some fab Clearly Besotted stamps from a blogging friend who is giving up and saw that Simon Says Challenge this week focuses on CB stamps and using something clear.  So I inked up my stamps with Distress Ink and made a card following Sketch Saturday's layout.  I added some clear Glossy Accents to the flower centres and to one of the banners.  The diecut hearts are also NBUS, I bought the dies at Portsmouth show last month.  I'm totally in love with these stamps and they are out on my desk to play with some more...

I'm entering my card for:
Simon Says - let's be clear
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Lexi's Creations - black, white and one other colour (turquoise)
Penny Black - use dies/punches
Stamping Sensations - summer blooms
Ladybug Crafts - summer flowers

I loved the Sketch Saturday layout so much that I used it for this stencilled card, adding a Clearly Besotted sentiment from the same CD set as well as diecut leaves from a Joanna Sheen die.  The stencil is another new purchase from my visits to craft shows in the last few weeks...

I'm entering my card for:
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
Lexi's Creations - black, white and one other colour (kraft)
