Tackling the UFO mountain

That's Unfinished Objects - I guess all of us crafters have one. I certainly do.....

Well this week at Shopping Our Stash they are hoping we'll dig into them and actually MAKE something.  The theme is called "Front and Center" and I have no idea why!!!

I chose a half-made card which you can see upright at the back of the photo, and a white die cut butterfly. I also found a pre-cut thick card ring, not a UFO but an unloved object (ULO?) that had been pushed into the same pile.

I think I'd originally set the card aside because I decided the pre-printed vellum I'd chosen for the die cut doiley didn't do the die cut any service at all, it looks too bitty. Anyway, one solution to that is to cover some of it, so I used ink pads to sponge on inks to match the doiley to the ring and butterfly, then added a few gems. I'd already stamped the sentiment the first time round.

So that's three items from the UFO mountain used - just another 200 or so to go......


  1. Well done! And UFO mountain got a little smaller! Didn't it feel great to use passed-up and "unloved" pieces? Wonderful card... great palette. Thanks for linking at SOS again this week, always good to see you.

  2. Beautifully done, If feels good to give an ULO item some love and make a fab. card. Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash for the "Front and Center" challenge.

  3. ULO — I think you may be onto something with that acronym! And wow, from UFOs and ULOs, you assembled one beautiful card! (And the doily now looks amazing.)

  4. Wow! Your card turned out amazing! Thank you for taking our little challenge to heart! I love the UFO name and that's what I'm going to start calling my stack!! Love the card! Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash! Cyndi, DT
