Shopping Our Stash #140 - Heavy Metal!



We've got a great challenge for you this week at Shopping our Stash - we want you to use METAL on your projects! Brads, clips, staples, charms...you get the idea.

I've used the last four matching silver brads in my stash - how are there so many shades of silver? 


Supplies: stamps from Unity; paper from DCWV; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; lord only knows where those brads came from.

So what metallic bits & bobs are languishing in your stash? Dig them out, and come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, March 3rd hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

If I had a nickle for every flippin' brad in my stash. Remember when that was the "In" thing to use oh and eyelets...oh goodnight!

This is fantastic! The perfect DMC too!

Great card Jessi, love the image. there are a lot of different shades in silver and why don't you see it until they are on the card?

Good question--how can there be so many shades of silver and so many different shapes of round brad!??!!?! I questioned that myself. This is a great masculine card. I love the zillions of cogs on it.

One of my fave Unity itty bitty sets -- and perfect paired with that paper and those MATCHING brads!

Donna said...

Lovin' that stamp and design paper!!
Perfect dude card!

Shades of Silver? Perhaps a new book series for the geriatric crowd? (sorry, I don't know what came over me)

And you said "last of" and "brads" int he same sentence. I don't understand these words.

WOW! This is a great card! Love the sentiment and the image. This would be perfect for my dad! Different shades of silver? Who knew, but I guess there are. Good job finding enough matching ones!

Great monochromatic masculine design, reminds me too that I have some brads that could use a little love!

Debbie said...

LOVE this card, and especially that the whole entire thing really backs up the "metal" idea, which is represented literally with only those 4 perfect brads! GENIUS!!! :)
