Using Up My Own Stash Challenge and ~Goosebumps~

Want to see some more small gift cards that I created?  
These are ideal for small gifts, food goodies, bottles, etc.

I'm joining in with Morissa @ The Shamrock Stamper to use up the old stash and creating with what I already have in drawers, boxes, and things hidden from sight.
Do you ever forget that you have a cool tool, or some awesome papers
...and when you find it you realize that you haven't even used it yet
...and it was something you just had to have?!!!
Well, join in and use up your stash!  You can visit Morissa's blog and she is coordinating 'a few prizes from her stash' on Friday' on her name above and it will take you to her blog. 

So...I really love how the fruit from my
{ippity} New Season, New Wonder
set look in 'gloss'.  I have been using some Glossy Accents (yesterday's post), but today I also used something else ... 'Goosebumps'.
Have you ever used 'Goosebumps' by Tsukineko? I had bought this from one of my fav LSS's, Frenzy Stamper, some time ago and haven't used it till now!

Check it out and look at the 'goosebumps' effect...I especially like the way it looks on this orange and I used my Imaginisce i-rock tool for the bling (love this tool!) and my Fiskars border punch (love this too, but I cut my right side too close..oops):
Ingredients: {ippity} New Season, New Wonder stamp set; SU c/s; Fiskars 'All-A-Fleur Lis Embossing Border Punch;  Tsukineko Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray; 
 Imaginisce 'i-rock' tool and bling;

I used the 'Goosebumps' on this card also, however, you can't see it as close as I didn't let my camera put the glare on this pic:
Ingredients:  {ippity} New Season, New Wonder stamp set; SU solid c/s, DSP, and ribbon; Tsukineko Goosebumps Clear Texture SprayImaginisce 'i-rock' tool and bling
Crop-A-Dile corner chomper

I used 'Glossy Accents' on this one:
Ingredients:  {ippity} New Season, New Wonder stamp set; SU solid c/s and ribbon;  Echo Park "Life is Good" patterned paper; Spica Glitter Markers; Glossy Accents; 
Imaginisce 'i-rock' tool and bling

This one has 'Sepia Accents' and I made the apple into a peach...what do ya think?
Ingredients:  {ippity} New Season, New Wonder stamp set
SU solid c/s, DSP, and ribbon; Sepia Accents;  

Visual of some tools used:

So what do you think about those 'Goosebumps'? I think I'm going to play more with it and I'm truly liking the texture it creates! I've got to keep playing with my 'stash' that I have and I'm trying not to be tempted with anything new...I have soooo much in my stash to play with still!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Remember, if you need any {ippity}, I'd be glad to be YOUR {ippity} chick!
