IO Old is New


Greetings friends. Sometimes we get so busy with new released stamps that we forget about our old favorites. The Impression Obsession team has set aside a days this month to share some new projects using some great older stamps. You can see the list of today’s participants on the Impression Obsession Blog

 Today I want to share a card I made for a recent challenge that required us to use "trash" on our card. I decided to go with the back of a leftover Triscuits box for my farm scene:

I cut up my Triscuits box, layered it onto a card and added some favorite older stamps. My chicken was colored using Copic markers and then popped up with some foam tape. Have you ever made a card using an old box or wrapper?

Impression Obsession Items Used:

Gertrude (The chicken) C21294
Hey Chick B12200

Cute and creative! They say that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This card proves it!

Being a collector of rubber stamps for over 20 years, I have a massive collection. I seldom buy a stamp that I do not love, so that means I rarely get rid of any either. Love that this theme is giving older stamps a place of honor, as they well deserve. Cute card.

Love this! I recently made a card using a Kleenex box, well the printed pattern from it on a card. Fun but not nearly as cool as your card.
