Use Your Stash Blog Hop ~ It's Hard Being Green


Welcome to the Use Your Stash Blog Hop! We all have a stash of some kind of another! If you came from Cassandra Bennet's blog you're on the right track. Just keep clicking on the links to continue along the hop!

This is a great way to use up those odds and ends! Here is what I came up with for the theme this month.


With the theme, It's Hard Being Green, I had no trouble finding some green in my stash. Green is one of my favorite colors so I always have some handy! This card was very quick and easy to make. I also had the circles in the stash and decided to use those as well. I stamped some leaves and flowers in Juniper and Thistle and popped the middle one up with some 3D Foam. The background is Juniper Washi Tape and ribbon. I used our new Mini Stapler on the ribbon ends. Add a message and a couple Clear Sparkles and you're done! Although most of the items were from my stash, the stamp set is current and called Happy to Be Friends. The card base is from our bulk pack of Colonial White cards and envelopes.

Not only did I make a pretty card, but I also used some of my stash. That's a double good feeling!

Thanks for stopping by! Now it's time to see what 
Heather Jane Schmuckal has to show us!

Have a great day!
Michelle
