Forgotten Stamp Friday-Week 4

ETA: I decided to start using the Mr. Linky widget, so if you decide to play, go ahead and add it to the list!!

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog!! It is time for my Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge!! As some of you might have seen, I started a little "personal" challenge called- Forgotten Stamp Friday!! Basically, I am challenging myself, and YOU, to use some of those poor, dusty, neglected, forgotten stamps from your collection!! I have created my own "keyword", this week's is FSF04. Last week, I had TWO people play along!! Thanks Dawn and Misty!! The only rule is to use a stamp set that hasn't been used in at least 6 months.

For my card today, I used one of the first Our Craft Lounge sets I ever got!! I just LOVE Pea-nut...he's so cute!! He was stamped on am MFT perfect panel, and then colored with my Copics. I then layered him with Regal Rose, Rose Red, and Hot Fudge card stock. I followed Mercy's LAST sad, and cut out my circle panel with the MFT Decorative Doily Die-namic. My DP is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet pack. The gingham ribbon I used is from SU.

Well, that is it for me for now!! I can't wait to see if you play along!! Be sure to use the keyword FSF04, or come back here and leave me a link in the comments!! There is no time limit, just be sure to use the right keyword, and have FUN!! Have a great day!!

For my card today, I decided to use the More Essential Sentiments set!! It was designed to go along with the new Layered Label Die-namic being released!! Cute, huh!! I used it to cut out my DP panels, and sentiment panel. The DP I used is from the My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy pack. I paired it with Regal Rose, Hot Fudge, and Blu Raspberry card stock.

I used the Flower Trio Die-namic to make my flowers, which I accented with an Michael's brad. My ribbon is from MFT.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and another wonderful sentiment from this set!!
