Shopping Our Stash #341 - You Stamped With What??

Happy Tuesday and welcome back. It's time for a fun new challenge here at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, we challenge you to use an item that's NOT a stamp, and USE IT TO STAMP! You're welcome to use actual stamps along with your non-stamp.
Some examples are bubble wrap, bottle caps, doilies, leaves, pencil erasers, etc. The possibilities are endless! (Don't forget to tell us what you used. It may not be obvious to us!)

Let's see what the design team have come up with to inspire you: 

Cyndi
I used the back of a Cricut spatula to stamp the rain drops! 

MariaI used the cap of a re-inker, the cap of a SU marker and the bottom of a ball point pen.

Mimi


Deena I stamped with a scrap of chipboard that I embossed

BarbaraI stamped with elastics

ChrisMy background was stamped using the cap of my deodorant!

LaurenI stamped with an acrylic sink mat, the cap from a bottle of pellegrino,
and the tube from a roll of paper towels.

DonnaI may have gotten slightly carried away with a random bunch of stuff in the craft room
to make the background LOL


We'd love for you to play along with us!

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

You have until 11:55 PM (EST), on Monday, February 19th to upload your project using
the Inlinkz below.

Make sure your link is a direct link to your new project, not just a link back to your blog.

Please, no more than 13 combined challenges, including ours.

We look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery! Have fun!
