Darnell's NBUS Challenge No. 2

Over at the fabulous Darnell's blog its the second NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) Challenge.  I am a bit late entering, it finishes really shortly!



I have used the fabulous Jofy singles stamp - I just love it!  Its brand new, never opened before.  I stamped the images on inky backgrounds and embossed with clear powder.  Then stamped again and cut out just the star in each colour and stuck them on the opposite colour background.  I added a bit of extra colour round the edges of the stars and the frames with a slightly darker shade of Spectrum Noir Pencils followed by clear Wink of Stella just on the Stars.  The Sentiment I have had for ages, not sure of the make but I am pretty sure I haven't used it before.  A few little pearls and that's it!

These are the challenges I would like to enter:

Darnell's  - NBUS
Stamping for Pleasure - Rudolph Day
Scrapology - September Card Challenge - Anything Goes

Please pop over and have a look at these fabulous blogs - they are all so cool!

Thank you so much for visiting - I appreciate it so much!  Take care.  Christine xxx

Oh, dear me, Christine, I see I'm going to have to be adding to my NBUS Mountain after seeing your fabulous cards!! I am in love with that stamp and over-the-moon with how you detailed and added that star to each card in the opposing colors! I'm loving the vertical sediment, too! Brilliant!! Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

What a great pair of cards with mixed and matched color. Very nice. I have a friend who always bemoans the lack of vertical greetings like the one you used here.
