Vintage Cardstock and some The Crafter’s Workshop LOVE in here!

Today Ava Gavloski created an awesome tag that has a really masculine feel to it. I don’t know about you but I could really use more of these for those last minute gifts for the men in my life!

Here I used the Ahoy Matey stamps from Inspired by Stamping and paired this stamp set with the Core’dinations Vintage Collection.  
You can really see how well the double sided Core’dinations Cardstock can stretch your options as a designer within the craft industry.  The blue and golden brown tones of this cardstock gives you the sand and sea effect co-ordinating well with the stamp set.

I used the Darice Birch embossing folder to give some weathered board texture and the tearing of the Core’dination cardstock gives the feel of waves rolling to shore.

I love that we have such a mix of styles on our team!   Designer Jill Lebbin really works the CAS look but don’t let that you fool you. There are some amazing details on this card. Jill used her Crafter’s Workshop stencil so keep reading on how she did it….

I heat embossed the balloon using my Darice heat tool. I laid down the TCW stencil and used Ferro from Viva with a putty knife on top and smoothed it over … a technique I learned from CHA!  The ferro is charcoal color and I got it from Hobby Lobby.  I wish computers would allow you to touch the card bc the ferro makes the card 3d almost because it dries hard.  It’s like a putty paste . It seriously is THE COOLEST stuff!!
