Forgotten Stamp Friday

Hey everyone!! Since it is Friday, it is time for Forgotten Stamp Friday. If you aren't familiar with this challenge, it is a personal challenge that I have posed to myself to make me use some of my uninked, unused, and neglected stamps. The only rule is that it has to have been uninked or owned for 6 months. Digi images count, as well...we tend to collect those, and then never use them, too! If you decide to play along, just be sure to enter your name in the Mr. Linky, and when uploading to an online gallery, use the keyword...FSF25.

For my card tonight, I started with one of the first Pure Innocence images that were ever released, Fairy Girl. I stamped her on an X-Press It Blending card. I then layered my image with Sour Apple, Barely Banana, and Pink Lemonade. My paper is from one of the MME Lime Twist collections. I used MFT ribbon, Blossom and Honeydew Twine, Michael's brads, and a Creative Express spiral clip. I also used the Open Bracket Border Die-namics. My sentiment was cut out using the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.

For the inside, I used more of the same paper and the border, and another saying from the set.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and I can't wait to see if you play along!

For my card tonight, I wanted to use the super yummy swirly paper from the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Hattie makes me think of water. I colored my image with Copics, and then layered it with Baja Breeze, More Mustard, and Not Quite Navy. I used MFT ribbon, spiral clips from Creative Express, and Michael's brads.
