Today I'm sharing more stamping projects from the Fiskateer Spring Stamp Out. As you probably know, Fiskars is famous for their orange-handled scissors, so we Fiskateers are frequently challenged to pair orange with another color. In this case, we were asked to pair orange with a color that (allegedly) doesn't go with orange. I chose purple.
You don't see a lot of orange and purple together, which is a real shame. Orange and purple were two of my three wedding colors and they looked great (if I do say so myself). Anyway, here is the orange and purple gift bag I stamped. Any guesses as to what I used to do the stamping?
If you guessed empty tape roll, old sponge dauber and drinking straw, you would be correct! You know what they say: one man's trash is another man's treasure. Why spend money on circle stamps when these are free and just as cute?
I used two of these (tape roll and straw) for the Girl Scout cookie box makeover that I showed a few weeks ago. For the full tutorial, go here: Found Object Stamping.
For the "Dumpster Dive" challenge, we had to turn something we would usually throw out into something beautiful. I remembered that Pamela #8040 had made a card using the patterns on the inside of security envelopes. I decided to do the same. The patterns I found were very interesting. I thought they'd make a great sympathy card.
From trash (well, recycling actually) to treasure!
