If you're anything like me, you have a whole lot of stamps (and other supplies) that you just HAD to have... and you still haven't touched them. So, this is a challenge to help you bring those supplies to life. Simply make a card with a stamp set that has not yet seen ink. The stamps can be out of the original package, but the entire set should be unused. You can use one stamp from the set, or all-- whatever makes sense.
For this week's twist: also open up (and use) a pack of patterned paper that hasn't been opened yet. Could be a 12x12 pack you need to trim down, could be a 6x6 pad, whatever.
I used my sugarPea designs flamingle stamp set, and a friend's stamp set from Ink Road that SHE hadn't used yet, plus patterned paper from I think a pink paislee 6x8 pad.
Great challenge, Eddie-n-Harley. I could spend at least a year making several cards a day using stamp sets that have never seen the light since they came home with me. Love how you found that flamingo a home!
You have no idea how much I love that sentiment. Lovely card!

Eddie-n-Harley thank you for the unused stamp challenge! I like the tropical feel of your card. Your challenge made me get out my last Paper Pumpkin kit and finally get around to using it. There are image stamps in the set, but the kit contents only called for the sentiment stamps. The result is 12 very useful cards for my card stash.
What has surprised me in these stamp challenges is that I have actually had a harder time finding stamp sets I have never used. This little gal, though, is one I hadn’t broken out of the package yet, so I did a summer card.
