In keeping with my attempt to use up some of my dusty embellies, both of my cards today are using some of my Never Before Used Schtuff  (NBUS) that's been in my stash for years.  

For my first card, I pulled out some Graphic 45 Happy Haunting designer paper along with some Stampin Up! card stock.  Once I stamped my image in memento black and colored with prismacolor markers, then layered along with faux brads, I color spritzed a navy marker over the colored image before popping up and adding a gold star clip.  I did the exact same thing for the saying before adding a navy ribbon along with a gold clip.

The second card had me dusting off the circle clips and buttons this time along with an embossing folder that hadn't seen use in a while as well.  Once the image was stamped in memento black and colored with prismacolor markers, I stippled Tim Holtz spiced marmalade and summer sun inks around it before layering and adding brads.  I then popped it up over the saying, added an orange ribbon with one of the circle clips then added two yellow buttons.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs for a chance to win today's featured sets.
