Hey all! It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge starts at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week we want you to break out and use that specialty paper that you just had to have, and of course never use! HA! Did you snag some cork, burlap, or corrugated paper? Got foil, or glitter, or canvas paper that you're hoarding? Time to have some fun with it! Here's what I made:
and the inside:
My specialty paper is a burlap sheet, cork paper, and corrugated paper. (Yes, I actually bought corrugated paper! What the heck was I thinking?! My excuse is that it has teeny tiny corrugations as opposed to a cardboard box, which has much larger ones.) That's my story and I'm sticking with it. My card is based on an older Sweet Sunday Sketch (#252). The main panel is cork, and I stamped directly onto it, then used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the bear. I like how the cork adds texture and makes the bear look furry! Cool Beans! The banner was die cut then inked around the edges. I cut the flower die twice, from burlap and red card stock, and added a brad in the middle. A simple sentiment finishes the inside.
I hope you get the chance to play along this week with us at Shopping Our Stash! Please do check out what my teammates created to inspire you! You'll be amazed with their crazy mad skillz!!
