It didn't take long for me to realize why I love card challenges. I love how nice our craft community can be! Darnell Knauss over at the NBUS Challenge is so sweet. I had to join another one of her inspired challenges, especially since the latest honors her talent and joy of crafting.
CAS-ology is using her Never Before Used Schtuff for inspiration this week so I am linking my card to that challenge and her latest NBUS #3...
My Never Before Used Schtuff includes breaking out some Scrapbook Adhesives black foam sheet, and the new stamps and coordinating dies from Simon Says Stamp, Better Together. I actually pre-ordered the stamp set and forgot about it until it arrived in the mail. It was a fun surprise and even better was finding out it came with not one, but two sentiment dies. I paired the set with a really cute panda from Unity Stamp Co. Plenty of Pandas. He's new, too, but have already used a lot (too cute not to stamp him over & over again!).
This was the first time I used my black foam. I love the added texture and seamless look pairing it with black cardstock. The only difficulty was setting it just right on my paper using my craft pick. I am still a novice at taking really good photos of my work, but maybe you can see the dimension a little better on this close up...
Rest of my supplies were Stampin' Up! embossing folder and a Fiskars heart shape hand punch.
Thanks for stopping by. I've added some links to the new schtuff I used... Have a terrific weekend!
