Reuse it!

My challange for the justjohanna Earth Day Extravaganza is Reuse It!


In our efforts to be kinder to our planet one thing that we can do, and really I think the first thing we should do, is try to get more than one use out of our stuff! My everyday example of this is shopping bags. We are commited to either remembering to bring our canvas sacks for shopping, or reusing the bags we get stuff in. We use them for all sorts of stuff around here.


So my challange is this. Look at your stamps. Can you get a different use out of them? I mean use the immage in a different way. (not use them as something other than stamps, that idea scares me! What if we hurt our stamps. The horror!) I mean can that lime slice be a flower? Can your submarine be a blimp, or even a rocket? *yes, yes your submarine can be a blimp or a rocket, and almost everything can be a flower*



To do this challange you may want to do some masking, adding different images together, or the trick where you tape off part of your stamp when you ink it, then remove the tape and stamp just part of the image. Just have fun!



Here are some ideas to get you started. *sorry if you've seen these, I've had sick kiddos all week. Sick kids require a ton of mommy time*

This is a ladie's skirt and a ladie's fan from the Limited Edition Ladies Dancing kit.This is the submarine.
Lime slice flowers.




After you make your card load it to either your blog or to the justjohanna gallery. Then come back here and leave me a link. I might not find you if you don't leave a link. You have until midnight Pacific time tomorrow. Then I will draw a winner of the awesome stamp seen here:


And don't forget, everyone who plays in any of the challanges will be entered to win grand prizes!

  • one winner will receive $250 in justjohanna stamps
  • one winner will receive $50 in justjohanna stamps
  • five winners will receive a 25% discount coupon when they place a justjohanna order

Also please go to THIS LINK, which is the justjohanna forum, it should take you directly to the Earth Day stuff. All the challanges will be posted there! New ones will be added all day.

I think that's all. I'm sure I'm forgetting something important, so I'll probably come back and type that at the end in green! HAHA.

Thank you for the challenge Erin. I linked my card straight into the JJ gallery - it's a combined effort because it started late in Europe! I used the heart stamp for a flower.

I just love trying to find unusual ways to use stamps. My latest obsession is creating robots. Here's mine...
