UYS Challenge Revisited: A Progress Check

A while back, I began the Use-Your-Stamps Challenge, but during the holidays and their aftermath of using so many new purchases, I've not made much progress in using my stamp stash. So the other day, I pulled down my SU Flower stamp box and quickly used all the stamps therein.

One whole set (Stem Silhouettes) on a single card!

These pretty colors are courtesy of my new Hero Arts inks. It's a happy, sunny card made on a cold, snowy, icy, dreary day.

Using orange Stickles, I've discovered, is very uplifting on such days.

How are you progressing in your own version of the UYS Challenge?

stamps: SU Stem Silhouettes, Papertrey Signature Greetings
ink: Hero Arts yellows and oranges, Memento brown
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: Stickles


  1. These are such gorgeous colours, Susan ... yep, a warm, happy inducing card! Anita :)

  2. The warm and vibrant colors on your card make me smile, Susan. I'm quite impressed that you used all the stamps in one set on a single card. That's certainly something I've never done. I'm still struggling with the UYS Challenge. Sometimes my old stamps just call out to me - LOL!!

  3. i just love your cards. simple yet so beautiful.
    thank you

  4. Love the card, what an accomplishment and all one layer too! I am up to stamp 157 and I started January 1. I have made many more cards but they don't all have stamped inmates on the,

  5. I love this! The colors are beautiful and the arrangement of the stems is just perfect!

  6. I do pretty well with using my stamps when I participate in challenges. Have fallen off the wagon a bit lately though. Too much other stuff going on. Hopefully I can get back into it for awhile before gardening season begins.

    Cute card. Love the sunny colors!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
