SHOPPING OUR STASH #198 - Texture Me



Hello peeps and happy Tuesday to you! We have a fun new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week we challenge you to use your oldest embossing supply! Whether that be an embossing folder, or powder, or even a stylus and brass template, it's up to you. (See? Choices!) I grabbed one of my oldest embossing folders to create this card:


 and the inside:

I did more of a debossing on my background panel. I smeared an ink pad over the design, (not so*) carefully placed the panel inside the folder, and ran it through my Grand Calibur. I also went around the edges with the ink pad. I snipped a little bit of burlap and adhered. I rummaged around and found this pretty purple ribbon that I've had for at least 15 years. (*koff hoarder koff*) There are two rows of it layered on top of the burlap. Stamped the sentiment, adhered, then added the dimensional dragonfly sticker. Another sentiment and sticker finishes the inside. 

So, ready to raid your stash for those neglected embossing folders or powders? Sure you are! We'd love to see your card or project linked up at Shopping Our Stash! Don't forget to check out what my teammies came up with to amaze and inspire you, and please leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

* the panel shifted a bit when I was putting it in the folder, but luckily I liked how it came out, so I used it)

  3. Chris, this is a beautiful creation. The addition of the burlap was a fabulous design decision as it only elevates and already elegant design So nicely conceived and beautifully executed. Very nice work!

  10. That background is stunning! And it's not hoarding, it's saving stuff for the right time & project, see? (at least that's how I convince myself!)
