ST: Sending Joy

I mentioned recently that I really enjoy finding little treasures in my stash that I had forgotten about and thinking up ways to use them. I thought it might be a good challenge and some good fun to start a new feature on my blog called Stash Treasures. This will not only be a great creative exercise, but it will also help keep me focused on the supplies I've got instead of thinking about what new things I need to buy.

For today's card, I pulled out an ephemera pack from Fancy Pants' Oh Deer line. I remember getting the ephemera pack because it had two adorable deer that I wanted to use on gift packaging. I never did end up using the deer and the ephemera just sat there in a little jar.

I grabbed the "joy" word from the pack and paired it with a Simon Says Stamp Sending die. I added some warm polka-dot paper and hung a couple ornaments to the side that were echoed in sparkly enamel dots. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for reading!


  1. I love your challenges. They are so fun! Love seeing what you come up with as well. This is such a pretty card. I love the colours too...they all work so perfectly together.

    1. I love the colors too, I'm thinking of making it my palette for this years' holiday cards! That is, if I find the time to make them...

    2. Oh that would be a fabulous combo! Yeah, I hear you...and the year is passing by so quickly!
