This week our challenge is called TOOLS OF THE TRADE:
Use some of those tools we bought but don't use often.. could be your eyelet setter, circle cutter, decorative scissors, fastenator, tiny attacher, cropodile or maybe you have an embossing folder that has not yet been used or has been neglected- use it and post what you used in your blog post.
I use my Cuttlebug often to cut Nesties and use it to emboss on occasion but my go-to embossing folder always seems to be my swiss dots one & I have tons that I don't EVER use (I KNOW....shame on me, LOL)!! I needed to make a card for my Dad for Father's Day and he's not really a card kind of guy so I kept it really simple:
I used my neglected star embossing folder to create this background and then distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink. I added some Tim Holtz Chipboard letters that I distressed with the same ink & added some chocolate brown pearls in the top corner. I can't wait to see what you come up with when you play along this week!! Isn't it great we are all using our neglected supplies?
My card will be entered into the following challenges:
