Shopping Our Stash #301 - Back to Basics

Cheers friends!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew!

This week we are going BACK TO BASICS

That means no dies on your project. 

We want you to use to go old school and use an actual pair of scissors to cut something!!

If you know me at all, you will know that I am NOT a very good fussy cutter...shaky hands make fussy cutting a bit of a cranky time for me...so I kept it to a minimum on my card...just fussy cutting the image and the sentiment pieces.

I did have fun inking up a stamping block to make the colourful background and then I added some faux stitching to finish it off.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • white cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Wondering Midge stamp (Riley & Co)
  • Sarcastic Superpower stamp set (Rubber Dance)
  • Stamping block (SU)
  • Peacock Feathers, Festive Berries, Wilted Violet & Twisted Citron distress inks (Tim Holtz)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Paper piercer & mat (SU)
  • Fine tip sharpie
As always, we would love for you to take up the challenge and play along with us.

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG.

While you are there please share some loves with the rest of the crew!
