Grab and Go (using up what I have)

I just had the idea while in my stamping room. This year...I will begin using every single stamp I own. I will start in one bin and pick up a stamp and USE it.  I am officially calling this my Grab and Go Project

I will be posting these on my blog so if any of you want to follow along you may.  It's easy to subscribe by e-mail in the box to the right.  My other rule is every week I must use/ make at least one card with designer paper. agggghhhhh! Did I really say that???? 
So tonight was my first project and it is an ugly tree stamp that I have never used. I think I got it free from a give away bin somewhere and I thought it would be good for Halloween but I have never used it. It actually turned out not so bad. I didn't want it to be for Halloween. So those are my thoughts. (p.s. I hope I win some stamps...lol last year I won 4 sets) yahoo yippie yi yay!
Image is shadow stamped with mustard first and then close to cocoa SU colors, I stamped the leaves on the BG paper and then pencil colored lightly and used a blender pen to fill them in. I brayered the tree image with Spectrum rainbow pastel colors, sponged the torn edges, added the ribbon and then I thought about hand printing the sentiment.  The CS is done with CB folder argyle.  One down, 7 more boxes, bins to go.  :)

  1. I really need to do that with my stamps too - unfortunatly I am a bit of a collector (DH says 'hoarder' :) so it will take me awhile....
    I like the card - the leaves in the backround are cool!!
