Goodbye, Simple Sentiments kit!

I made a couple of cards like each of these, then emptied the adorable brown polka dot box (great for wrapping gifts!) of what was left in the SU! kit. The stamps went into a stamp drawer, the brads went into my MM brad storage container, the real red ribbon is stored with my other red ribbons, and the stampin' spots are stored in my stampin' spot container.
So my stamp room is marginally neater and slightly more organized for using up the kit :)
For the first card I pulled out dps and a cs sticker sentiment from the SU! "Secret Garden" Simply Stampin' kit. I also used SU! felt flowers. I used Kazan's sketch in the current {Caardvarks} challenge.
The second card is all SU! too, except I used my QuicKutz Revolution "thanks" embossing plate.
What will I use up next??? I am super inspired by a card I saw here: http://www.scrapnextras.com/scrapnextras/2008/07/a-vellum-challenge.html
I've mentioned the guilt I have for having SO MUCH stuff, and then purchasing more. I seriously don't have room! I would love to use up my stuff so my room is stream-lined, and pretty as a magazine pic, kwim? I am realizing that using up stuff actually doesn't get you much room. It is a s l o w process. Anyway, this vellum card is sort of haunting me. I absolutely love it! And I have a drawer full of colored vellum that I bought 5 years ago when a stamp store went out of business (I couldn't pass up a deal, right?) And I haven't used a single sheet...

This card is beautiful beyond words. Your creativity is amazing, and I can't wait to see your next finished project. Have you ever consider publishing your cards?
