BELLI CHALLENGE #50 - UNUSED STAMPS

It is BELLI CHALLENGE day!!!


What is the Belli Challenge you ask?

Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!
This weeks, Belli Challenge is to make a project with your UNUSED, NEGLECTED STAMPS (use any well loved stamps that you haven't inked up in a while)
C'mon! You know you have them...remember that stamp set you HAD TO HAVE? You may have used it way back when and now it sits...I know! I have a BUNCH of them! LOL
Here is what you need to do...

1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project with your UNUSED, NEGLECTED STAMPS (use any well loved stamps that you haven't inked up in a while)
3. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC50. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or Paper Craft Planet or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC50 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!
4. I will do a drawing and the person whose name I draw will be a BELLI GUEST DESIGNER the second week of February!
5. Deadline for entry is Tuesday evening 7 p.m. Central time.
Last week's winner was Jessica- check her FABULOUS project out HERE. I love the sentiment and live by it too sometimes! LOL Be sure to leave her some LOVE! :)
Now, do not gasp at my project. I am trying to make 10 Christmas cards a month, so I can get them done early. I am even one month ahead! This is February's cards!!! WOOHOO for me! We will see now where I am in March...

Here are the details for this project:
Stamp Set: Holiday Sentiments by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Pine stamp unknown...

Chris, this is gorgeous! Love these rich colors! Ten cards a month, Wow! I'm only half the woman you are, I'm trying to do one a week or at least 5 a month. With 2 weeks into the new year...I'm still on schedule! hehe
Blessings, Maria

What a wonderful example to set us all. I have lots of those unused stamps in my set. I made one recently for this exact reason.
