ABC Christmas ,,, U for Unused Stash

Hi all ,,, the weeks are rolling on by and before you know it Christmas will be here ,,, and have you got a box of cards ready ? If you have been joining in with Christmas challenges all year then there will be no need for a last min rush to the shops to buy them !!! :-)

This week on the ABC Christmas Challenge we are already up to ‘U’ !

‘U’ for Unused Stash ,,,,

this can be something you just bought or something that has been stuffed in the cupboard and neglected. The DT have all taken photo’s of their unused stash, you don’t HAVE to ,,, BUT if you do you will be eligible to be considered as a future GD !! YAY !! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher to her store ,,,

AND Bugaboo Stamps who will be giving a lucky entrant a choice of 7 digi images.

Here is my new stash ,, a Die=namics ‘Tag You’re It Die and stamp set and American Crafts Garland Ribbon.

I used some new Lawn Fawn stamps, coloured with copics and popped onto the die cut tags with pop dots. The paper is Basic Grey from a Nordic Holiday pack. I added some star dust stickles, ribbon , a Martha Stewart punched snowflake and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge used this very cute House MouseWitch Way to the Candy stamp, aww Muzzy is way too cute to spook and the hat is way too big for Monica,,, bless :-)

I coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Black Soot distress inks. The papers are Authentique from the Glowing paper pack, all the edges were inked and I ran the sewing machine around the edges. The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado Mini Scary Words set.

I added a Martha Stewart spider, which is climbing over trying to get to the candy , and bat, not sure what he’s doing there,, flying in for a party !! :-) these were both highlighted with Star Dust stickles and a white gel pen, to finish I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops.
