Unity FWF/ Use Your Stash Challenge


The theme for today is one-layer cards. I'm hearing a few of you groan...yeah, I know. Me, too.I was working on {ippity} materials for a craft show on Saturday and noticed that I had plenty of samples with bling and layers (nesties/CB), but nothing that a newbie may not feel overwhelmed by doing the first time out. These designs also lend themselves to easily changing the sentiment from "thank you" to "happy birthday" to "sympathy", etc.

I'm still teetering on the edge of doing these as a make and take at the booth. The jury is out, but I need to decide soon in order to prep my materials.


Supplies
Stamps: Where You Should Be
Ink: Memento Greens, Black
Paper: Kraft
Accessories: Wide Grosgrain - Lemongrass (Offray)


Supplies
Stamps: Regal Greetings
Ink: Black
Paper: White
Accessories: Black Pearls

I also make a bag for their new {ippity} purchase. Got the idea from the great gals on the Unity Opportuniy blog. Inspired by the talented, Stephanie Zito.



The "use your stash" winner for this week is...


Gwen will receive a few fun items from my personal stash.
One can only use so many of those lovelies that one accumulates, so why not share them?


PLEASE POST THE LINK TO YOUR CARD/PROJECT ON THIS POST FOR NEXT WEEK. LIST THE ITEM(S) YOU HAVE USED FROM YOUR STASH.

My item this week was that cool green wide grosgrain ribbon that I have had in the package forever!!! It's gorgeous!

Best of luck this weekend! Your second card is so elegant, though I must admit a certain fondness for the first one.
Speaking of stash use, I've been very good the past few days. I've used ribbon that has been percolating in my stash since SU got the bug up its behind last summer. Ahem.
