Okay, I know it's not Monday - I have the best of intentions, truly! From on, these posts will be called - Make it Someday! And with the downloadable project sheets available, you can do just that! (I LIKE IT!) Love this new Brick Wall Stampin' Up! embossing folder and all the cool ways to use it - like as a stamp on this card, really? who knew?
Okay, now download the tutorial and get out those supplies ladies and gents, SOMEDAY is today! (or save it for later if you want to get back to that steamy book you are reading - I won't tell if you don't) Actually I could probably recommend a series or two or twenty - just sayin'!
I'm baaaack with another great project for you! I did a version of this one for club members this month and they loved it! The Faux Patina technique is so much fun.
You know sometimes masculine cards can be tricky but I think this stamp set, The Wilderness Awaits makes them easy! I will have 3 videos up soon with cards using this set (including this one) and wait until you see the Faux Camo technique! Don't forget to click on the RED subscribe button over on my YouTube channel so you don't miss all the videos when I post them!
Okay I'm off to the ENT doc this morning to check out why I have this Tinitus (ringing in my ears) going on. This business of growing older brings new issues each time I turn around. And this static or whatever it is in my ear is kind of driving me wacky - okay I'm already a bit wacky so I need no help there LOL! Wish me luck! By the time this posts, I will hopefully have some answers. Until next week then....
Check out what is on SALE this week at Stampin' Up! If you wait too long to order, the prices go back up when the quantity set aside for this order is sold out, so don't miss out!
I know I use my Star framelits all the time, so you will love them too! And the embossing folders are so cute, a must have. I need to remember to pull those out and use them - sometimes I forget about what I already own! LOL
And if you picked up the Go Wild dsp last week on sale, they have the Go Wild cardstock pack to match on sale this week! Can't beat the sales!
