Twinkling Tuesday Challenge!

This week's challenge for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday is to use a stamp set you have NEVER used......and I am ashamed to say that I have one or two..... of those kind of sets around!!

Now that i have used it - WHY did I not use it before - it is stinkin' CUTE!!

I am talking about Papertrey Ink's Green Thumb stamp set. I have had it for a few months and have never got it out. I even considered selling it!! Unbelievable.......

It is also yesterday's Try a New technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers to make a Flower Pot Pocket card and boy what an easy challenge!! I really thought it was going to be a another nasty one (sorry Lynn) but this is one of "those" that I will use over and over again!! YAY!

Don't forget to take a look at the other girls blogs to see what stamps they have been neglecting!!

Now go and dig out those old unloved stamp sets!!

Papertrey Ink, CHF houndstooth (turquoise flower). All That Scraps itty bitty dots
Close to Cocoa, Pink Paislee, PTI Vintage Cream, Aquamist and New Leaf,
PTI Ocean Tides, Summer Sunrise, Vintage Cream, Memento Dark Brown,
Flower Punch, PTI Aquamist ribbon, cuttlebug tiny tags die, buttons, twine, pop dots, Martha Stewart leaf punch

  11. Bonnie,

    Even though there is brown on this card I still love it and love your creativity!!! Did have to use the inhailer once though!!! LOL I love that rain boot and the flowers and the way it fits inside of each other!!! So so creative and amazing!!!

    I so love all your creations and M so sorry I have not had the chance to come by lately!!!

    I will be back later today to catch back up on your posts!!!

    I hear you on the puppy thing, I would not just buy puppies for someone if I did not already know that they wanted them!!! That would not be a fun gift if you did not want it that is for sure!!! That is also the reason part of my gift includes house breaking them for the gift recipients!!!

    Keep up the amazing creations!!!


  12. Love this! I've gotta try that challenge. I especially love the way ou punched your flowers out of a mix of solid and patterned papers.

    I've got one or two of those kind of stamps, too (ahem), but I have used my Green Thumb set a time or two. So many stamps, so little time!!! What's a girl to do?
