SOC #162…. No Stamps Allowed

2012 September 12

Hey Guys,

I’m the host for the new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters!   Brand new challenge, which gave me a bit of a panic attack, lol.

The challenge is to use absolutely NO STAMPS!  I know, right?  And wouldn’t you know it, I drew a complete blank (for about a minute or two).   BUT, then I had a light bulb moment and pulled out all my old – very old – rub-ons.

So I finally used My Minds Eye Bohemian line rub-ons (the butterflies), the sentiment is also a rub-on from Autumn Leaves.  Guess I don’t have to tell you how old these rub-ons are, we all know how long ago MME’s Bohemian line came out.    I decided to use tags and play with some Adirondack spray inks and Starburst Stains.  LOVE how this one turned out!

The next one is another tag on which I really used Starburst Stains from Lindy’s Stamp Gang.  LOVE how the “splats” look on this one!  The rub-ons are Basic Grey (the birds and roses) and old Stampin’ Up! and they are also about 4-5 years old.

Isn’t that the coolest background?  I just love it!!!!!  How funny that I started this challenge with no real idea and ended up with two beautiful tags which I totally love.  And you know what?  I’m so going to play some more with those old rub-ons because this was totally fun!

Now head over to the Sisterhood of Crafters, because I have one more tag posted over there and of course you will want to check out the rest of the gals!  And then, grab those rub-ons or stickers or anything as long as it is NOT  A STAMP!

Until next time…..

All the rub-ons are discontinued and were from my stash.

    Well, that's no fun!  You made me drool twice!!  LOVE both of your tags.  I wanna come and play backgrounds with you, as yours are always so amazing.  Sure is a good thing that you had some "old" stash stuff around to help you out of that challenge dilemma.  No stamps?!  EEK!
