Finally, a Lizard!

I'm playing a bit of catch-up as we enjoyed a lovely long 5 day weekend out of town.  I'm so excited to share this card today as I have been inspired to use a number of supplies that have gone without any love.  Darnell Knauss is hosting another NBUS challenge on her blog at djkardkreations. What a great motivator to use rather than collect those must have craft supplies.

  1. Stamp Set: The images come from a stamp set that was given to me more than 10 years ago by a co-worker who purchased the set but never used it.  I never found the right opportunity to use it, it's just not my style.
  2. Distress Inks: I've been playing around a bit with different inks and coloring mediums lately.  I had a couple of brown distress pads but didn't do much with them.  Last week I picked up a few packages of distress cubes and put them to work here.  I sponged some yellow, green, red and orange distress inks on a white panel then stamped and embossed the lizard in clear.  I then sponged black distress ink over the entire panel.  I did get a bit of "overspray" of embossing powder around the image which I thought added a nice touch here.
  3. Embossing Folder: I bought this folder a couple of months ago and thought it was about time it took a trip through the Big Shot.
  4. Green Card Stock: This card stock was also purchased a couple of months ago and I just now put it to use.

Happy Stamping,


  1. What a lovely card. It looks very ethnic. You've certainly used lots of NBUS for this one. Have fun using your distress inks. Barbxx

  2. That's such a cool lizard, Dana ... those vibrant colours really glow against the black ... he's spectacular! Hugs, Anita :)
