Hiding In My Craftroom SSS for April 2013

This week at Hiding in my Craft Room we are digging into our stash for our Super Scraps Saturday Challenge.  Our sponsor this week is who have so generously offered a $25.00 gift certificate prize!  The contest runs for one week and this is one challenge worth diggin around in your scraps for! I don't know why I don't do this more often since you can really pull a card together rather quickly, especially if you find some pre-stamped papers as I did.


The background paper had been embossed with a Spellbinders 5x7 embossing folder and was smeared with a lot of Tim Holtz Distress Ink in cut grass.  The craft paper was stamped with a Ranger texture tread (normally used with wet hot UTEEZ, to create a dimensional, texturized embellishment).  A  Basic Grey rub on was placed onto the stamped piece...I found the Life is Beautiful stamped sentiment from Inspired By Stamping in the pile as well as the striped paper.  I added a G45 BirdSong chipboard piece and attached a crystal, as well as a Jolee's satin flower and a couple of red I am Roses and Voila, a card is born!

I will be entering this into the following challenges; - use your stash (and I sure did, read my post :) ) die cut or dry embossing combo - Day102

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by to have 
A chance at that $25.00 prize!
