JOY! NBUS Challenge!

I have discovered a great new blog over at dj kard kreations and the awesome NBUS Challenge! NBUS stands for Never Before Used Schtuff), and I’ve got a ton of it! I love it when friends or family give me their stamping and craft supplies they just can’t use because they know I’ve got a lot of love for hand-crafted paper artistry, especially beautiful papers and dies!


For my very first NBUS Challenge, I decided to start with a CAS inspired card, which is sort of a new style I’ve been doing a lot with lately. My NBUS is a brand new Poppystamps die, the Sparkle Burst Stars! Isn’t it festive? It’s from Poppystamps new release! I also added some recent items that I’ve been using a lot lately: Curled Ribbons from Memory Box, and Peace, Love, Joy Tags from Poppystamps. The enamel dots are also NBUS – -I made them myself by melting thousands of perler beads in my oven one hot week during an Alabama summer!

You can play along with the NBUS Challenge here:

Thanks for stopping by!

Live your life in color!
