Hiya friends! Just a quick post tonight (since Sunday's was a monster one, lol!) to share another card I made with Lesley's fun tic-tac-toe challenge over at The Paper Players. I needed a card for a male co-worker and the blue, dry embossing, masculine elements gave me the creative boost I needed!These punch art wrenches are all over blogland and is the perfect accent for our very own Mr. Fix-it's birthday card! Of course, a wrench is kept in the tool shed, right? I don't own the Tool Shed background stamp but it's a download in My Digital Studio (MDS)--perfect! In MDS, I made a box (with the square punch shape) about the size of an A2 card front. I colored the box with Crumb Cake, layered the Tool Shed stamp over it and "colored" the stamp in Early Espresso. Then I printed it onto Very Vanilla cardstock, sponged the edges and the result is my own DSP!
How 'bout that Woodgrain embossing folder from the brand-new, just released Holiday Mini catalog? Swoon. You know that was the first thing on my pre-order! I sponged it with some espresso ink to really bring out the deep texture. Love it! Speaking of the Holiday Mini, do you have yours? It's GOR-JUSS!! If you need one, and you're not already working with a demonstrator, let me know and I will mail one to you!
Remember, there's still time to play along with us over at The Paper Players. Check out the Tic-Tac-Toe board and join us before Friday, August 3rd at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
