Hi there! I've got two cards to share today. First up is a card for The Paper Players' masculine challenge. I finally broke down and ordered some Taylored Expressions stamps and dies and I love them! I actually opened them up and used them right away which I almost never do. Usually I ponder new acquisitions for ages and wonder why I thought I'd be able to actually do justice to them.
This design came together really quickly. I used Stampin' Up's brushed gold and silver cardstock for the tools and they look so cool - just the slightest bit of shimmer to them.
Cardstock: (White) Papertrey Ink, (Brushed Silver, Brushed Gold, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps: (Sentiment from All the Fixings) Taylored Expressions
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies: (All the Fixings) Taylored Expressions
Next up is a card for two challenges. I took the colours from The Challenge and paired them with Fanciful Feathers for WPlus9's Throwback Thursday Challenge. I remember when this stamp set came out - I saw those feathers all over the place and I HAD to have them. I couldn't tell you the last time I inked them up though. I need to take part in this kind of challenge more often!
Okay, that's it for me. Back to work for now but tomorrow is Friday. Whoop whoop!
Cardstock: (White, Kraft) Papertrey Ink
