Shopping Our Stash #324 - If The Shoe Fits

Greetings friends!

Thanks for stopping by today to check out the newest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

You know the old saying....if the shoe fits...well this week we want to see that reflected in your project!

I knew exactly the witchy shoes I wanted to use for my card. 

Wicked Cool is an older SU stamp set, but it's still one of my faves and a go to for Halloween cards.

Unfortunately, I think my witchy-poo has taken a bit of a nosedive off her broom!

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Black & purple cardstock (Recollections)
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Green cardstocl (SU)
  • Wicked Cool stamp set (SU)
  • Haunted Manor design paper (Doodlebug Designs)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint & Carved Pumpkin distress markers (Tim Holtz)
  • 1 3/4" scallop, 1 3/8" circle & 1 1/4" circle punches (SU)
  • Paper piercer (SU)
As always, we would love for you to join the crew and play along!!

All the details you need are on the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG

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

Jingle Belles - Embossing Around the Christmas Tree


There is just over 2 months to go until Christmas and I am sooooooooooooooo far behind in my holiday card making!!

Sometimes there is a benefit to the ever so fun combo of insomnia and anxiety, at 5:30 this morning I got up and started making Christmas cards!

I had an idea in mind of what I wanted to try (yet to be used Christmas die and a certain embossing folder) and as luck would have it, the current challenge at JINGLE BELLES is Embossing Around the Christmas Tree

I started with this one

And liked it so much, I made two more!

That last one, the cardstock is a really nice bright teal colour, I am bummed it looks kind of wishy washy in the photo.

Shite I used to make these cards:
  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Cherry Cobbler & Early Espresso cardstock (SU)
  • Teal cardstock (Recollections)
  • Woodland Textured Impressions embossing folder (SU)
  • Merry Christmas / Deer die (manufacturer unknown)
I'd like to enter these cards into the Embossing Around the Christmas Tree challenge at JINGLE BELLES
