Paper Dolls Challenge #19

It's me, Michelle S. (abzzymom)!  It's my turn to host a challenge!  My goal this week is to spread the love to some neglected stamps and supplies.

I am totally addicted to Papertrey Ink! I know this because I continue to buy new stamp sets and products every month even though I have a ton of stamps that have never been inked and a bunch of supplies that have not yet been used on a project.

So, here's my challenge:  Make a card or project using 1) a stamp that has never been inked and 2) a product that is brand new and never been used.

On my card, I used a lot of things that I've never used before. I bought the Fly Away set when it was first released, but hadn't used it until now. It's an adorable set and at just $5 it's a bargain! This is also the first time I used Background Basics: Stars. I love how it matches the star that's on the back of the plane.
I have the whole Spring Rain collection, but have yet to use them. For this project, I used a button and the saddle-stitched ribbon for the first time.  Can you believe this is also the first time I used the cloud die?

I'm sure you have a stamp that needs some love and inking as well as embellishments that are just screaming for you to use them. So, look through your stash of goodies and get creative!

This challenge will be open for 3 weeks. I can't wait to see what you make!


  1. Michelle...this is a great challenge!! Can't wait to do this one....I know exactly which set to use!

  2. I totally do that too -- buy new PTI when I haven't even inked up some of what I have! Adorable card, though. I JUST used that set (Fly Away) this past weekend.
