A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

11:55 p.m. PST on October 4, 2017

  • You must use a NBUS item on your creation and indicate what it is. It doesn't matter if it is old or new, although that old virginal schtuff would really like some attention!
  • This challenge is a thank you to my followers, so to be eligible for a prize, please join via the blue button on my side bar to your right where all the happy little faces are! If the button says "Follow," you have not followed me; you click it to join and follow the prompt in the popup window.

My card.

Mother Nature has put us through a few rough weeks with fires and floods and earthquakes and wind all around the world, so I will be focusing on HUMOR with my NBUS cards for this challenge. 

I love snarky sediments and have accumulated a few over the years, but they can be hard to use for specific challenges or events, so this will give them an opportunity to feel some inky love and hopefully bring you some smiles!
Is this perfect for opening day of this challenge, or what??!!

I can't remember now where I first saw this hysterical sediment, but I had to have it immediately. It is from Simon Says Stamp. The little crazy stamping lady ("Mad Stamper") is from Uptown Design, and the "Life is Good!" border is simply a double layer of Washi tape from Mike's.

 
I can't wait to see the amazing creations you make and enter below using one or more item of Never-Before-Used-Schtuff!! Thank you very much for participating and for being incredible followers and supporters and friends! Your friendship and your encouraging comments keep me going! MWAH! 

If you have any questions, please use the Contact Me form on the side bar or email darnell dot knauss at gmail dot com.

[All prizes are donated by me personally, except for #18.]

  • Five (5) Gift Certificates of Winner's Choice to any USA company!
  • These new stamp sets and dies:
6. Build A Blossom (SU!)
7. Small Circle Burst (Memory Box)
8. Fringe Circle (Memory Box)
9. Elegant Weeds (Hero Arts Clings)
10. Madison Avenue (SU!)
11. Distress Oxides (unopened) ~ set of five
12. Shadow Play (Altenew)
13. Uplift (Skipping Stones)
14. Tasty Trucks (SU!)
15. Wish You Were Here (Lawn Fawn)
16. Tin of Cards (SU!)
17. Borders and Backgrounds 3 (WPlus9)
18. And last, but not least, this new PTI "Holiday Greens" stamp and die set donated by my friend, Linda Snodgrass of Lin's Craft CornerThank you, Lin!

Selection of WinnersBecause you are all my friends, I could never select one of you over another, so I will use Dr. Random and Mrs. Dot Org to choose the prize winners by random drawing. They will work tirelessly around the clock, with Hammy providing beverages to keep them highdrated. 

Feel free to let me know in your comment which prize you prefer if you're a winner. I will post the winners as soon as possible.

Enjoy the challengeNo, seriously, enjoy!

Viscous Circle Warning: Participating in the NBUS challenges will diminish your stash of NBUS! Yay! Unfortunately, because part of participating in the NBUS challenges is visiting the other gallery entries and leaving comments, you will find yourself experiencing severe PE (Product Envy). This, in turn, will cause you to purchase more NBUS and your stash will grow.

Wow Darnell what a haul you've accumulated for your fun NEBUS challenge, who wouldn't want to take part. Thanks for hosting!
Love the sediment, even if my hair is short and my boobs pert, it made me smile. :)

Kathyk said...

Oh goodie, NBUS time again ... I'd love to snag pretty much any of your fabulous prizes but those oxides would rock my world!!! I don't yet have a SINGLE one!

Happy Sunday

Kathyk

Marianne said...

This really is a wonderful card to mark the start of another NBUS challenge, Darnell.
Let's go and have some fun, shall we?
Marianne x

scrAPpamondo said...

I have a lot of NBUS in my stash, so I hope to have time to play!... :)
Your card is too much FUN, Darnell!! :D Very beautiful! And yes, surely it's really PERFECT for opening day of your challenge!
Hugs

Jane Willis said...

Oooh I'm first into the gallery
*jumps up and down in excitement*
*gets black eye (see Darnell's card for reason)*
Fab card Darnell and what a totally awesome collection of prizes. I'm with KathyK - the Distress Oxides would be my #1 choice but I'd love any of the prizes.
Jane

Dotty Jo x said...

I have soooo much NBUS it's untrue! Must try and play along, Darnell. I'm up to my ears in DT work, but I love this challenge. Thanks for organizing all the fun, Jo x

Sue said...

Hi Darnell, Did chuckle at the card:)

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue

Loll said...

Hilarious card, Dolly! Made me smile. That's definitely how I start my stamping time. :) And I think that mad stamper looks a little like me. :) As always, can't wait to play along. Lolly xx

frommycraftroom said...

Your card had the intended effect - made me chuckle :)
Hoping the postie is kind to me tomorrow - ah cough cough waiting on 4 deliveries! And you can bet they'll be delivered tomorrow cause hubby is home!

Stamps and Paper said...

A great card Darnell and it made me smile.....great sentiment

Anne

Marilyn said...

Cute card!! Love the sentiment and little image!! I love the distress oxides. Have not gotten those yet

Happy Dance said...

Bwahahahahahaha!! What a great card! Pretty sure most of us have at one time or another put our hair up, left our boobs down, and spent the day crafting in our jammies. Perfect way to start your NBUS #12 Challenge. You know I HAD to play along. You're too special in this craft world for me not to! Have a wonderful and fun week peeking at all our goodies. Miss you tons. xoxo Bev

Donna said...

Love your card Darnell and your NBUS fun!

Liz said...

Fabulous card, Darnell, thanks for the giggle!

Great to have another NBUS Challenge. It's a good excuse to spend extra time in my craftroom, digging out those long forgotten NBUS things we all have, as well as use recently purchased things before they too turn into vintage NBUS items. Thank you for giving away all these lovely crafty prizes.

I would love to win any of the crafty prizes, although gift certificates are hard to spend from the UK, as those nasty little Customs and Royal Mail people add on HUGE charges before they let us have our goodies! Number 7, the Small Circle Burst (Memory Box) would slip nicely into an envelope for crossing The Pond. ;-) xx

cm said...

I'm totally that gal on your card, my friend! She's awesome and has her priorities figured out! Your theme of humour: perfect! We all need some giggles! Your prizes...oh my! Once again, dazzled by your generosity! I'll be playing along because oh my stars! There's some NBUS really calling for my attention!
Hugs~c

Marilyn said...

This is always such fun and I will be sure to enter. Thanks for doing this... I always look forward to it.

Maura R said...

Woo hoo, let the fun begin! Thanks Darnell!

Ya-freaking-hoo. Starting my engines.

Ксения Phedra Ли said...

Great that you start my favourite NBUS challenge! Love it so much)

KandA said...

Love your fabulous fun card Darnell and the sentiment is spot on!
So glad you're hosting another fabulous challenge and what a super selection of very generous prizes too but please leave me out of the draw... I'm just playing to reduce my ever growing pile of NBUS xx

Cheryl S said...

Great challenge idea! Love the sentiment too ☺

Cheryl S said...

Great challenge idea! Love the sentiment too ☺

scrAPpamondo said...

Yay! I entered once with two NBUS :D

vinita jain said...

Your card made me giggle, love it! Love the repetitive texting too!
I have a lot of NBUS products in my stash, would love to join here! And wow! What an awesome list of prizes! Thanks for the another fun challenge!

Leslie Miller said...

I love me a funny sentiment! Your card is so great and a perfect way to kick off your challenge. I hope to play this time as I sure do have plenty of NBUS. Been sick and having a hard time getting back in the saddle. What a great line up of prizes you have! Thanks for the fun!

Dee Earnshaw said...

Oh my, Darnell this card is so funny - love the image and the sentiment - that is me all over lol!!!
Thanks for this new challenge - I would love the GF if I was to win lol!!

Cris G said...

What a great way to boost NBUS #12 :). The sentiment is hilarious and so is the crafty girl! Thank you for your crusade, helping us to not forget any of our beloved goodies... and also for another fun challenge!

Lisa Kind said...

OMGosh that sentiment cracks me up! And that girl...priceless! Great card!

Lady Joyful said...

So excited for another NBUS challenge! Your card is so fun. Would love to win any of those prizes - what a fabulous selection you have!

Milka Gubo said...

Wohooo!!! New NBUS!! Love love love your challenges, Darnell, as they always remind me to use those NBUSes. :o) Love your card! So fun! :o) Thank you for another NBUS challenge, great inspiration and opportunity to win amazing prize. :o) Big hugs!! :o) xx

Tracey McNeely said...

Congratulations on the 12th NBUS challenge! Lots of great NBUS to give away! ;)

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Hello Darnell,
When you 3 days ago mentioned the next challenge, NBUS was clearly alive, despite the fact that recently I barely survived (endless cold with sinusitis). You know how to make others happy! Thanks a lot, Darnell. Your card as always filled with humor, I love you for it :-)
If I have the option to choose a prize, then I would prefer to use the voucher to make in the store. But great joy also gave me the prize No. 9. Great thanks for the opportunity to play. But Darnell you know well that it's not prizes that mobilize us to take part in your challenges. This is your incredible personality. Big hugs,
BozenA

Mac Mable said...

What a fun card and so perfect in every way!!! Very generous with the prizes and congratulations on your 12th Challenge....So glad I could join in x

Anita in France said...

Hahahahaha ... is that what we looked like at the LH?? You had me (well both of us actually) laughing out loud with this mad crafter, Darnell ... she's brilliant! Thanks for another wonderful NBUS challenge ... I'm sure there's some NBUS somewhere round here ... looking forward to finding it and playing along! LYAMYHMAHFCOTNBUSG! Big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Helen F. said...

I can't believe you are hosting NBUS Challenge #12!
You are incredible, my friend! I think I have been stacking my new crafty goods since #11 ~ this Mt. NBUS is about to avalanche! I am definitely joining your parteee, fingers crossed I don't get buried beforehand!
Love your fun card and always enjoy a chuckle or two when I visit the Playhouse, Darnell :-) XOXO

Karenladd said...

Eeek!!! The Mad Stamper strikes again! I don't know how you even found that hilarious sentiment, but what better way to start out your NBUS challenge. Crazy hair flying, bunny slippers on and boobs at the ready...I'm in. I've been reorganizing my craft room (a weekly occurrence) and came across some NBUS that I've tucked into a basket so I can't wait. I'll be concentrating on using old (as in ancient) embellishments and papers this time around because even old things need love. As I qualify for an "old thing", I'll give myself a big hug and go off to craft.
What wonderful prizes...oh my. My favorites would be the Distress Oxides, one of the GC's, the Memory Box Circle burst die (so intriguing) or the Shadow Play stamp set by Altenew (really unique).
Any of those prizes would be treasured though, and would be welcome.
Thanks for always bringing a smile to my face and being such an encouraging presence.

Verna Angerhofer said...

What a fun card and I sure got a giggle from that sentiment. And, that is a fantastic gal doing her jumping routine. So glad you shared it cuz a good laugh is what everyone needs these days. I had just pulled out a set I had not used since purchasing it for another challenge and since it fit the bill for this NBUS one I decided to enter it here too. It seems I never run out of Never Before Used Schtuff. LOL Always an ample supply in my stash. Thanks again for this challenge as it is a motivating thing for me to use my supplies. And, I must say you have some awesome prizes as well. You are very generous.

JoAnn said...

Wow, what great prizes you have gathered for this challenge. I have been waiting for it ever since you announced the date on your blog.
Love the snarky sentiment on your cute card.

Bobby said...

What a way to kick of the latest NBUS challenge, Darnell. That lady looks just like me, big mouth, blonde hair, all excited although I do try to keep the boobs up where they belong. ;) I've been using NBUS right along but I have a few kept in reserve just for you. I'd love #13, #18 or a GC if I'm lucky enough to be chosen from what I feel will be bazillions of entries. Thanks for inciting the NBUS riot and generously sharing your gift of humor with us.

Macimbalo said...

Oh I LOVE your card! hahaha! Can't wait to see what everyone creates - thanks for hosting such a fun challenge!

Bunny said...

Yay for NBUS! Cute card that you created. Love the sentiment. NBUS is a good reminder to us to use the stuff we have before we buy one more thing. Thank you for the chance to win a lovely prize and all the time you're spending making us happy.

I am playing for prize #18 (thank you, Linda)[Bunny]

ionabunny said...

Dear darling Darnell, now I have linked. Regarding prizes, if I should be so lucky..... I have none of these items and would be grateful to receive any. That said, the distress oxides are top of my list, although maybe a gift certificate would be easier on your postage. I shall leave it up to you and keep everything crossed. Thanks so much for doing this. I would have joined the fun, prizes or not, cos you rock. Hugz

Carol H. said...

LOL--what a fun and funny card!! Hair's too short to put up, but the other, well....yes, gravity strikes! Haha!

Looking forward to the motivation to dig into my NBUS to join in your challenge! Such fantastic prizes you have! Were I to be so lucky, anything would be awesome (but not the Shadow Play stamps nor the Oxides, as I already have these.) Thanks for hosting a fun challenge and for the chance at some goodies! Hugs!

Sheri said...

I have lots and lots of NBUS this time. I am playing along! Hair is too short to go up but boobs definitely go down! They are doing their job of keeping the wrinkles out of my face!

Craftychris said...

ooh Darnell! NBUS 12 is here at last! Yay! I have joined in already! I hope to join in again too! Your card is absolutely hilarious! The picture is fab and as for the sentiment, well, its the best ever! You are so generous offering such awesome prizes! A gift certificate would be my number one but would love any of them! Not the Oxides though as I have some so they would be much better going to someone who doesn't! However, the prizes are not the reason to join in - its just the pleasure and fun of being part of NBUS 12 with all the other oodles of lovely crafters who will also join in. You give us all so much fun and happiness and support us with your lovely visits, comments and friendship - its cool to be able to support your challenge! Luv n hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Bonnie said...

That looks just like me! Ready to go! Life is good and you make it even better, my friend! I couldn't wait to play along. If I should be so lucky as to win, I would love the GC. But I'd play just to play! (And have an excuse to break out some NBUS!)

Greta said...

Have to admit, I scratched my head when I saw that SSS stamp, but should have expected to see you use it--haha! That Washi tape is cool! So generous of you to give so many prizes, Darnell--thank you! I'd take a gc if the Random Dot Org couple pick me!

Julia Aston said...

Wow - how fun and lookie at those prizes sis!! I'm off to my craft room - where there is LOTS of NBUS to be used!!! Juia xx

Rema said...

So sweet and generous of you to offer up some fabulous prizes. Good luck to all...

Lisa Elton said...

YAY, I love this challenge of yours Darnell! I hope I have time to play along. My crafty time is limited lately! You card gave me a good chuckle, too much FUN!!

Susanne Vargas said...

It's NBUS time! Your fun card sets the tone for this challenge! Now let me go see if I have any NBUS - hahahaha! If Mr. Random should pick me a gift card or the Oxide Inks would be my top choices (don't have any DOIs yet.0

Ustvarjalni utrinki Tamara P. said...

OMG Darnell, I must to join the craft party. You are amazing lady. Thanks for your visit and for your tresured comment on my blog.

Donna said...

Hello, lovely. I'm playing just for fun, so on the off chance that Mr or Mrs Whatsit pick my entry for a prize, please could you give it to someone who needs cheering up?
Thank you heaps...
Donna. xxx

Carol L said...

Your generosity overwhelms me with these NBUS challenges! Your card is hilarious and I love that image and sentiment! Too funny and oh how I can relate!! LOL If I'm lucky enough to have my name come up for a prize, I'd love a gift certificate. I still don't have a Misti and that would help land one in my crafty little hands! Thank you SO much!!!

Pat said...

I love your fun card Darnell. The sentiment really made me laugh, and so great to have another NBUS challenge and thank you for the fab prizes. They are all great but would love the oxide inks as I don't have any yet, but quite understand if the postage is too astronomic to the UK, and would then love the MB Small Circle Burst die. x

Trina P. said...

Your card cracked me up! Loooooove it, Darnell! Thanks for hosting another NBUS challenge. If I'm lucky enough for Mr. and Mrs. Random Org to pick my number, I would love one of the GCs. But I'm really just happy to play along and use some of my ever growing list of NBUS. Have a great day. Trina xx

Sheila H said...

Thank you so much for hosting another fun NBUS challenge - they are always such fun. Your card makes me laugh. In the event I win something, the gift card and Distress inks are at the top of my list. But you know, I would welcome anything. Have a wonderful day! (I plan to enter twice more.)

scrappymo! said...

Your card is hilarious! Great sentiment. I look forward to seeing all your other funny cards durng this challenge.
My card today has 4 NBUS items. It was great fun making it.

I shall try to make my second card a funny one in keeping with your personal funnyness goals for this challenge. lol

scrappymo! said...

Me again...your prizes are fabulous as always I shall be delighted if I win any of them!
Thanks you for your generous spirit.

Betty Keefe said...

have a couple of NBUS dies and can't wait to use them - lots of ideas - now to produce!! if i am a winner the PTI stamps or a GC would be my preference. thanks for doing this challenge.

Valerija said...

I just love your NBUS challenge, because I have so much NBUS. Thanks for the new challenge.
Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful prizes too. My favourite are Distress Oxides, Hero Art, Altenew and Lawn Fawn stamps.
Have a great day.
Valerija xx

Redanne said...

The card is such fun, I really can't stop giggling about it!! What a fabulous lot of prizes, you are going to have a lot of very happy followers when they win for sure!

Will try hard to join in... Hugs, Annie xxx

Sue - said...

Hi Darnell, love, love your card! Happy to be joining in the fun again, I'm making a really determined effort to reduce my NBUS pile. The prizes are all great but as a SU demonstrator already have those, so would prefer a gift certificate if I was a winner. But hey it's not the winning it's the taking part! 😘

MRS DUCK said...

Hi Darnell
Absolutely hilarious. Describes me to a T lol!
Good luck with your latest NBUS spectacular. You are a very generous lady.
Best wishes.
Ang x

Susan said...

Working on a couple of cards for NBUS - it's such a great challenge as it gets me to dig out those unused stamps!! If my name gets drawn, my first choice would be one of the gift certificates. After that, the Elegant Weeds (#9) or the Small Circle Bursts (#7).

Thank you so much for doing the NBUS challenge.

Ina G said...

Laughing out loud with this fun card. That sentiment just says it all. What amazing generous sponsors you have collected here Darnell. Count me in. And don't we all have NBUS'

Janice said...

Your card is just fabulous! What a great sentiment, it did make me laugh!
Thank you for the opportunity to win any of these super prizes, it's so kind of you.
I'm off now to look for some more NBUS.....I have sooo much like everyone else it seems :-))

AlisonC said...

You always make us smile and now you have us all rootling through our stash and making the most of it. x

Karen Letchworth said...

Howdy, Darnell! Thanks for hosting again. I've been a follower here for quite some time, and always enjoying playing along. I am SO loving the thought of a gift card or the Tim Holtz Inks; but I'd be grateful at any rate if this is my lucky year. Several people will, no doubt, be very blessed. Personally, I just LOVE playing along and being encouraged to use my NBUS cuz (let's be honest)....we all have LOTS of it we need to use. Have a great week, and thanks again for hosting the NBUS challenges!

Maxine D said...

Darnell should I be so blessed to win anything, the cheapest for you would be a gift card, as that would not need to cost you any postage.
Blessings
Maxine

Dr Sonia S V said...

WOW Darnell you are so funny...I loved the way you addressed Random org!!! I have been tackling my NBUS and managed to bring it down quite a bit...Planning to go shopping as soon as it is at a "less guilt" inducing number!! As for the prize...if I am lucky enough to win...anything will do . It is the playing which is important...the prize is just the icing on the cake!!
Cheers
Dr Sonia

Em Louise Fairley said...

Adorable! I'm hoping for some crafting time so I can sneak in before the challenge ends

Craftychris said...

Hi Darnell, I have just noticed some people have numbered their entries. I have just added my second one but haven't put a number next to either - I hope that is ok? Hugs xxxxxxxxx

shirley-bee said...

I can't believe it's NBUS 12, Darnell! I love your opening day card, looks like me when I get new NBUS :)

Cat Craig said...

I literally laughed out loud Darnell...I LOVe this card. COngrats on yet another nbus challenge. I'm a little behind on blog reading and commenting, but I hope to give this a shot - time will tell.

Christine said...

Hi Darnell,
Thanks for a healthy dose of humor through your cards and your way of expressing yourself! It is a "picker-upper" to share some crafty fun and a few laughs after all the tragedies of late. Our area is recovering from Hurricane Harvey. We barely missed the flood, but so many of our neighbors have terrible messes. It feels good to be able to help.
Thanks for hosting a fun event.
Blesings,
Christine

Sandi said...

I absolutely LOVE your sense of humor Darnell and eagerly look forward to this challenge. This is the second or third time I have played along. I have never been fortunate to win a prize but if I did this time around I would love a gift card or those luscious oxide inks. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this challenge. Now I am off to comment on some of the fabulous other entries.

Preeti D. (aka Dutt Preety) said...

thanks for another wonderful NBUS challenge :) the inspirational card is hilarious, i love it!

Barb Ghig said...

Talk about late to the party! I have to tell you that this card is my #1 fave for 2017!!! Hands down!!!
I'm so happy to see that you're sponsoring another challenge...it's so generous of you, Darnell! Of course, there is no need to put my name in as I am a previous winner, and cherish my Mini-MISTI every, single day...thank you, again! I still plan to play along just for fun :)

Lia said...

Today I am showing my 3rd card but I have written 2 behind my name and that's a mistake!
Wow, so many cards already. Your challenge is a success!
Lia xx

Dotty Jo x said...

And I've made it back to play along! Wooo hooo! Brilliant challenge, Darnell - thanks so much, hun, Jo x

Cheryl W. said...

Another awesome challenge, Darnell. I will do my darndest to create a card to enter. I have so much NBUS that needs to feel loved...and used!

Zelda C said...

OH I had such a laugh when I saw your card Darnell - just love it! Thanks for another fun challenge AND for your wonderful blog - it never fails to brighten my day xx

Janis said...

Oh, Darnell...you have outdone yourself with this hilarious card and with your amazing array of prizes!!! Holey Whatchatamale!!! I (prob along with everyone else) am drooling over the idea of winning the Distress Oxides!! (slurp) A gift card (still chuckling over the last time!!) is always fabulous...and I also am intrigued with the HA Elegant Weeds. But I would be thrilled with any of your amazing gifts if I were so lucky to be one of your winners!!

Thank you for another wonderful NBUS event and for all the joy and laughter you bring to the papercrafting community!!! Hugs and much love to you!!

I'm so glad I finally had time to enter... Thanks for the bonus day! :) I've really enjoyed reading your posts and admiring your humorous cards during this challenge -it's been a wonderful event as it always is! If I'd be one of the lucky winners I'd love to win the PTI set your friend Linda has donated -PTI stamps are very hard to order to Finland due to their huge postage policy and then they get stuck in customs and you end up paying even more for them... So I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :) Thank you for the chance to win and your continuous inspiration! Amazing amount of prizes by the way -you are super generous!!

WHEW! Got my third entry in just in the nick of time! All of your cards are wonderful, and bring me smiles every time I see them! The prizes are all amazing, although my first choice would be the Distress Oxide inks.
