Use them or lose them #14, project 2

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!

This week I am playing with the Happy Hour stamp set.  After letting the paper I chose for the previous project take over a little I decided instead to go for a stamping technique for these two cards.

I used different shades of ink to stamp out the same glass and kept it simple.

This time I chose to stamp a background from the word cheers using different shades of ink.  Love how this worked, but not as happy with the stamping over the top… might have been better to create a panel to do this?

I added some dots of glitter to both of them although not sure that you can’t see that on the picture.

So I am happier with these cards for showing off the stamps but not sure I would use them much.  These are still an undecided set for this challenge… so will keep them for now and maybe try them again in a few months?

Happy crafting!
