NBUS (New But Unused Schtuff))

Hi there!

I hope you are having a good start to the week ... Just for a change we have rain ... It never seems to stop ... there's a hint of a blue sky each time the clouds shift - Just teasing us I think

So.... I have a card I made for few of challenges ... 

The lovely and so very witty Darnell of djkardkreations not surprisingly recently hit 500+ followers and to celebrate she has organised a challenge ... A NBUS challenge
That stands for New But Unused Schtuff ... (It's Darnell talk)



Whilst Lee over at The Mod Squad has just celebrated her 25th Wedding Anniversary and the challenge there is to make an anniversary card



So here we go with a NBUS Anniversary card 


The NBUS is the stencil ... I ordered some a while back ... so eager to use them but by time they came I was on to something else ... Not that they took anytime at all to arrive ... But the creative world moves so fast ... I get the idea for one thing and something else appears ... So this brick stencil lay untouched
Actually this is also a NBUT (to me) card ... New but unused technique


The technique of mixing inks with the modelling paste ... I think I'm going to need a little practice with those stencils judging by the result ... but I had fun


As Lee celebrated 25 years of wedded bliss I stamped and embossed the sentiment is Silver

Paper Crafting Magic - (new to me too) has a stencil challenge going on so I'm going to link up there too

Ok ... that's me for today ... 
I hope you have a brilliant week!

'See' you tomorrow

This is gorgeous Ros, those colours are so pretty. Love the effect of the stencil - it's more realistic. Glad I'm not the only one who orders things but has moved on by the time they arrive! It's raining here and not even a hint of sun!

So pretty with the brick background, Ros! Fab texture and a very lovely butterfly...well done!

Tracy said...

LOVE the modeling paste! It's so fun to add texture with this stuff. A couple of tips I've learned along the way--use painters tape to hold your card and stencil down and use one of those metal diamond shaped paint trowels to spread your paste. I was using a cheapie plastic one and the paste was getting under the stencil. The metal one makes it much cleaner and you can just pull the stencil right up with the tape. Easy peasy. Beautiful card Ros!
