Is That Leather?

Every now and then, something turns out quite unexpectedly. Such was the case with today's card. I made this months ago and can't remember if there was a specific inspiration for it (likely there was!), but I adore how the colored cardstock resembles leather. 

The stitched rectangle dies were a gift from my local stampy friend Eva, who gave me her unused Cuttlebug and a bunch of dies a few years ago. Layering them this way, with the three different shades of cardstock, really made for an interesting, yet still clean-and-simple design.

I need to play around with different colors of cardstock and different textures as well. This design could be quite versatile, especially given how many Tim Holtz stem dies I have amassed! It also gave me a chance to use some of my larger rhinestones, which tend to pile up as I mostly require the smaller ones. 

In tomorrow's post, I will address storage for embellishments. Someone sent me an email--which has since disappeared!--mentioning trying to find the right embellishments in all her stuff. I have a trick for that and will share tomorrow, with photos.

Today, however, I will leave you with this picture. You're welcome.

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,



  1. LOVE that card! Oh, and I always love your pup pictures. I post animal pics on FB every day - some of my own, but a lot found on the internet.

  2. I like you card too and am looking forward to your embellishment storage solutions! And of course I always love Eva and friend!

  3. Ooops, sorry....wrong dog, LOL!

  4. Love, love your dogs! And your card too. :-)

    1. Awww, thanks! I'm sharing a dog video over on Simplicity by LateBlossom's Facebook page, if you're interested.
