Poor, Sad, and Unloved ...

... you KNOW you ALL have stamp sets that you just HAD to buy ... and then they came home to your craft space only to be shelved ... FOR-EV-ER!!! I got the idea for the Free for All Challenge that I posted on SCS for today from my BFF, Jan (the infamous JanTink). Every year she has a "Festival of Uninked Stamps" over on her blog. She makes cards with those poor, neglected stamps.

So I made that the challenge on SCS and made this card using Herb Expressions. I can't tell you HOW many times I have pulled this set out ... stared at it ... then put it back in the cupboard. Poooooor baby!! It has been sitting and feeling oh-so-alone on the shelf ... Smiley from millan.netEven though it is SURROUNDED by LOTS and LOTS of other stamps!! So I decided to show it some love ...

Stamps: Herb Expressions, French Filigree
Paper: Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla
Ink: Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Folder, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals

THANK YOU for the kick in the butt to get this set out! I have done the same thing!!! I HAD to have it - and it has never seen the outside of the case. I need to make a little gift for a gardener friend - this forgotten set will be perfect.
Your card is simply beautiful. LOVE the new colors.

Hi Wendy!

You did a great job with this card. I love the colors and the layout and the swirls on the dp bg!

I love this stamp set. I like to do gardening cards...and this is perfect for this time of year especially. Instead of making a large card from it...make a simple note card...or send it to your shoe-sister, and she will make a bunch for you!

(Does the "S" stand for Shoe-Sister, I wonder! LOL)
