I've been having lots of fun in my craft studio recently :) Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made using the S'more Holiday stamps and coordinating dies as well as the Graham Cracker Cuts (all from The Greetery). So cute!!!
I purchased these goodies last year and unfortunately never got around to using them. Ugh. Does that happen to anyone else? I get way too excited and wrapped up in ALL of the fabulous holiday releases, and I end up buying WAY MORE than I ever have time to use before the holidays are here and gone. This year I've tried really hard to resist buying new holiday-themed products so I could make use of all the awesome, neglected, NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) in my stash. I confess...I have ordered a few things...but not much...hahaha!
I took this same design and made another in green:
I had a blast making these cards! Linking this up at NBUS Challenge 31. Big thanks to Darnell for hosting this challenge and encouraging us creatives to use our "schtuff" ;)

Oh yes, Lisa. It has most definitely happened to me! Most often when I hit the after-holiday sales! In your case, I think you couldn't go wrong with this set - and I'm so happy to see your darling cards, again. Can't wait for s'more!! [see what I did there?] Love your perfectly-cooked stamping on those darling marshmallows!ReplyDelete
I am so happy to see you back making cards again. This is a great card and that plaid is so pretty. S'Mores are great for a card to anyone. I have enough NBUS I bought from last year to make all my Christmas cards!ReplyDelete
I've made those purchases too... don't we all! Love that you've inked them up and made two fabulous cards! Those marshmallows look perfectly toasted!ReplyDelete
And big thanks to you for joining in and sharing your success with using your NBUS, Lisa! And, yes, I do the same thing. I'm just finishing up a project and then I'm going to get back into Christmas makes. This year I have been starting with all my NBUS, rather than reaching for the old familiar stamps and dies. It's wonderful to know others are doing the same! Your s'mores design with the plaid background rocks! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
