Use your stuff Monday!!!

It's time for another edition of Use Your Stuff Monday.. Every couple weeks my friends Rita & Lisa and I go through our Stash and pull out stuff that we had to have but we haven't touched it yet. We all do this.. we just have to have something and then it goes into a pile and next thing you know.. We've forgotten about it. 

This week we're using Dies we've lost in our stash... I've had this Mama Elephant "happy" die since it's release and this is the first time i'm using it or at least I don't remember using it. And I'm also using the coordinating stamp set "Happy everything" as well for the first time. I created a white card base and I added a layer of Daffodil Delight DSP... and then I die cut the MFT InstaFrame die from some White & Black card stock. I created a background scene with the lanterns from the Pandamonium set from Mama Elephant and a piece of green polka dot pattern paper die cut with the ME Landscape trio die. 

Using some Tumbled glass distress ink I created a soft wash and then I adhered the green polka dot hill and stamped the lanterns in some black ink and hand-drew the line. I stamped 2 more lanterns, the envelope and the Panda from the Pandamodium set twice onto some scrap white card stock in MFT Licorice Hybrid Ink. I colored the lanterns and added some shading to the Panda & envelope with copic markers. I paper pieced the lanterns onto the background scene and added the Panda and the envelope and then I cut just the arms off one of my pandas and paper pieced that over the arm holding the envelope. I added the background piece to the Black frame and adhered it to the card front off centered and added the white one over it. 

I die cut the "happy"from some Real Red card stock and stamped the Mother's Day onto some Black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I trimmed it out and added it over the Happy sentiment. To finish the card I added a few Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and stamped a sentiment on the inside. 

I think the inside is just as cute as the outside Ha Ha.. I stamped the bear and sentiment from the same Panda set in MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and the hearts are stamped in Ranger Dye ink in Classic Cherry. 

Be sure to stop by Lisa & Rita's blogs and see what they created this week.. and if you have some dies that are unused in your stash get them out and add a link to your project in the comments below... we'd love to see what you create!
