Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #93 - Lost and Found

Our new challenge at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is Lost and Found - in other words Edna would like you to rediscover an old stamp, stash item or technique that you'd forgotten all about. She's come over all Sherlock Holmes for this one!



I had a rummage through my stamps and found a completely NBUS stamp set that I've had for years and years - it was a free subscription gift with a magazine and none of the stamps has ever seen ink. I've been adding up on my fingers and it must be at least 15 years old.


The snag is, it is really too pretty to work any snark into, so today my card is a snark free zone. I used DI to make the background, die cutting a square and randomly stamping flowers from the set over it, then used some of the waste to stamp the butterfly. The background card was stamped all over with the paisley style stamp from the set and the sentiment is stamped with a mag freebie stamp.

  4. It's very pretty. I think I have some stamps with no ink either and I think, I should get rid of these, but I never do. LOL There was a reason I purchased them.
