View Full Version : IAP5 - Use Scraps & an Old Stamp Card ***WINNER***

The winner of my challenge is FIRECRACKER, Heather Stapley! Hooray for Heather. She gets a pizza box full of paper
My challenge is for you to use just scraps for your card and dig out a stamp you haven't used in a very long time. You can use a new piece of c/s for the base but if you have a piece of c/s already cut and it's just sitting there taking up space, use it. Any theme you want.

I will post my card this evening . My prize is going to be a big package of paper to fill your scrap boxes even more!

If you use a punch, a piece of ribbon and a brad, I'll put your name in the drawing 3 times.

Have fun with this, and with every challenge. My whole card was made with nothing but bits & pieces found in my scrap box. The tulip stamp was one of the first stamps I purchased years ago.

this is a great idea- I will work on it hopefully this eve after work.
I have lots of scraps, ribbon and brads and punches- I bet I can find many old stamps too.

ok, another one I might be able to carry out :)

Oh my goodness, have you been over here looking around, Michelle? I've got a pizza box overflowing with scraps and I don't want to count how many stamps haven't seen ink yet. Great challenge.

I have several shoeboxes full of scraps perhaps that is all I should use for all of my challenges! What a great earth friendly challenge!

SUPER IDEA!! Count me in... I have a FULL basket of scraps to use! :)

Btw, you may want to know that your link from the main post (via the homepage Ink-A-Palooza graphic) isn't working. But I found you via the message board! :)

Great challenge Michelle! Always good to use up some scraps. And the stamp - I don't know how old it is but I bought it used, five years ago from someone who was clearing out all her old stuff.
And I managed to incorporate using a punch, and adding a ribbon and brads.

Thank you for the challenge Michelle, I think my last for today.
I used three scraps of decorative paper for the punched hearts, an old blue bird stamp, 3 brads and some ribbon..........guess I met the challenge.
here is my link

Thanks for hosting

Fun challenge, I used a lot of scraps from my scrap bag, this stamp is not really all that old, but has been sitting around for several months unused, decided to use it. Here is my card:

OMG! As I'm tidying up my craft room and getting ready to go away, I realized that the card I made on Saturday for my SIL's nephew fits this category perfectly. Check it out. It's two views of the same card.

I've been busy today! Here (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22068&cat=recent&limit=recent) is my card for emmcee's challenge. Great idea for using up scraps, although, I didn't use a ribbon, punch or brad. :shocked:
I think I'll use for my ASM thank you card donation.

alrighty, this stamp is one I have had for about 5 yrs now...I think I have used it maybe 3 times if that!

Anyways, I have an old stamp, scraps from a 12x12 piece of designer paper, a corner punch, brads and ribbon! Guess that gives me 3 xtra points, right :)

I just had to have this robot set from Hero Arts last year and only used it once...I think it will be going into my sale pile after tonight.


05-01-2009, 10:58 PM
One more from the scrap pile & old set stuff...

05-02-2009, 08:49 PM
This was a great challenge to help clean up my stamp area after a busy week of crafting!! The set is an old favourite, Fishy Friends. I added the extras - ribbon, brad and punch. Thanks for this fun challenge!


05-03-2009, 09:04 AM
I'm still planning to create a card for your challenge! Stay tuned! :)

05-03-2009, 01:24 PM
This (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22150) was all scraps. Even the ribbon was a scrap!

I've finally finished my 10th card for Ink-a-Palooza!! This has been SO much FUN!

Here is my card (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=22160) for Emmcee's challenge to use all scraps and a neglected stamp.

I have 20 names to enter in my drawing. Some are entered more than 1 time. You all have made some totally awesome cards from your scraps and from stamps that have not been used in a while. Thanks for playing in my challenge. I'll post my winner tomorrow evening.
