Anything goes with your new stash at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning my lovelies, its time for a new challenge over at  Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Anything Goes with new stash' so if Santa was kind enough to bring you crafty goodies for Christmas its a great opportunity to join in. As always though we must see some stamping on your project, no digis are allowed. Our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend at Flonzcraft so its definitely worth playing along.

I've used some of my newest stamps on this project, I've also used lots of old goodies that I've just unearthed lol. Since I moved house I've been gradually sorting out all my craft stuff and its fab, like having loads of new stash as I'd forgotten I'd got lots of things lol. My project is an altered coffee can and matching tag. I've used Ranger Kraft Resist vard stock that I've inked with Distress Stains and overstamped with some gorgeous flower stamps from Dreamees. I've covered the coffee can with the card, added some string, twill ribbon and seam binding and made a layered flower using the Dreamees stamps and Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink.

I've made a tag in the same way, adding a strip of the leftover kraft resist card to a tag and popping on an extra butterfly. I've also used one of my favourite stamps from Flonzcraft, this gorgeous birdie stamp can be found here. I've embossed the image with black Embossing powder and added some colour with distress markers.

I'm entering this  project in the following challenges:

Allsorts: what's new
Crafty Calendar: something new
Left of Center: all things new
Sweet Stampin: Something new
Recycle. Repurpose, Reinvent: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, if you've got time pop over to the challenge blog as my teamies have some fabulous inspiration for you!
