Do you have a craft stash or hoard? You know, things you just had to have, were gonna use, but after you put them away or stuffed them in a container….poof they went into a crafty black hole? Or is your craft area super organized and you know exactly what all you have and where it is located? Or is it like mine and when you want to find something it’s almost like you are at a craft store discovering things for the first time? Yup, that’s me.
I was looking for a particular stamp set of Spring critters with its matching dies….for 3 days! While I was looking I found sets and embellishments, etc, that I swear I’ve never seen LOL. Such as this adorable set that I got years ago from Studio Calico. It doesn’t appear to be available now but you might find it on one of the Facebook groups that buy, sell, trade or destash.
When I found that set I just had to use it, that’s when I decided to do a monthly Stash Buster Challenge here on the blog! The challenge being to pull out an old stamp set and create a new card with it. For the March Challenge I chose this set and here’s the card I created. And yes, there’s a half green cloud lol, I picked up the wrong marker by mistake. No judgments if you have little ‘errors’, I consider them artistic expression lol. Like, hey, I meant to have a half green cloud! Kinda like the cat that falls and tries to act like “What you are gawking at, I totally meant to do a somersault off of the back of the couch”.
