Shopping Our Stash 175 - Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'


Happy Happy Tuesday crafty peeps!! It's time for another exciting SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge!! This week the SOS crew would like you to use something round. Use round images (NOT just a round die-cut), or make a circle card, or use a brayer (it's long and round)  -- OR -- use a Western theme, since our fearless leader Leslie got this idea from the theme song of Rawhide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKC8pSFg1Vw]

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' always makes ME  think of this song (yes you are welcome for that particular ear worm LOL)

OK back to the challenge...here's the round thing I made:



I started with a raw cork circle, painted it with chalkboard paint, added the dots around the edge with a Picket Fence distress marker, heat embossed the sentiment and added the bow...easy peasy lemon squeezy!

There is a piece of black ribbon on the back so it could be used as a wall hanging as well.

Shite I used to make this:

  • 6" raw cork circle (Joanns)
  • Black chalkboard paint (Michaels)
  • Picket Fence Distress Marker (Tim Holtz)
  • LOL clear stamp set (Hampton Art)
  • Versamark ink
  • White embossing powder
  • Bow maker
  • White polka dot ribbon
  • Black ribbon
I had so much fun making this, I wanted to make another one...I had painted two cork circles in case the first one didn't turn out LOL

The sentiment kind of reminded me of the Addams Family...so I went with more of a Halloween theme (skulls and bats are more me than pretty bows anyway).

  1. Love the sentiment, awesome job on the wall hanging. Wonderful job on the dots on the edge. I agree you need a back up plan if #1 doesn't work.
