Hi everyone! We're back for a new challenge and this week we have a few changes. We are bringing Guest Designers to Little Tangles, so please welcome our first one Tenia. I'm so happy to have her long because she and I were teamies before. And she's just superb!
Aside from that you probably wanna know the theme. This week we're tipping our hats off to all things Wood & Nature. So whip out your wood grain embossing plates, stamps, kraft colored items, burlap, cork, hemp, wood buttons or any other natural materials. Not too hard, right?
Here is my creation for this week:
Stamps: (Across the Card) Neat & Tangled
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft) Papertrey Ink; (DYI Shop) Crate Paper
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger
Embellishments: (Sequins - Raspberry Red Satin) Neat & Tangled; (Cumberland Gap Add-on Kit: (Blue Grid Washi) Freckled Fawn; Savannah Shore Add-on Kit: (Diecut Embellishments - Hope Chest) Josephine Kimberling; Wood Veneer - Tiny Hearts) Studio Calico; (Natural Burlap Stickers - Birds & Butterflies) Little Yellow Bicycle
I found some great wood grain pattern paper out of the DYI Shop collection, chose brown ink, and a burlap embellishment as my wood & natural elements. A little bit of bling and color can't hurt to tie it all together. Here is a close up of this adorable bird.
Just a fun shopping tip: I found a bunch of burlap, mistable fabric, and cork die cuts in Michaels on sale. I'm actually starting to like Michael's a little more for paper crafting. Recently they have been stocking Heidi Swapp, MME, Becky Higgins Project Life, Little Yellow Bicycle and a few other great finds.
And if that's not enough wood elements, I'm still surviving on wood glue ;) My crafty things are still haven't made its way to be unpacked. We are experiencing greater delays than what we had planned. But I am making due with what orders I have made, and the one pair of scissors, the wood glue, and a foam strip I found in F's tape bin ;) They kinda work like foam adhesives but aren't as tall.
Anyways, hope this card inspires you to play along. Check out the rest of the Design Team if you haven't. Absolutely fab creations this week.
