Hello and good morning crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we'd like to see some type of wooden element on your project. (Ex: wooden letters/shapes, paper, patterned paper, veneer, etc.) I was feeling nostalgic, so I broke out my Slice die cutter (that I've had since perhaps 2010, probably longer), and made some ornaments. Check it:
In certain lighting, the color of the wooden peace word and the darker blue card stock I used actually match. Not so much in this photo. Oh well. After I die cut all the parts-is-parts* of the ornaments, I thought they needed a little somethin' somethin'. So I embossed some of the pieces. There, that's better. The peace word was painted then when dry, I gave it a spritz of pearl Glimmer Mist for some subtle shimmer. Of course, you can't see it in the above picture. But it's there. Trust me. ☺ I added some silver floss so that the ornaments wouldn't be magically hovering by themselves.
Now it's your turn. Got any wooden butterflies or arrows? Patterned paper with a wooden design on it? Why not make something with it and link it up at Shopping Our Stash? We'd love to see it! Please do check out what the other ladies came up with to wow you, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get creative today!
* Thank you, Leslie, for making me remember that Wendy's commercial. I used to use this term a lot when it first came out, then it faded from my mind, replaced with other catch phrases. LOL!
