Shopping our Stash #185 - Not Your Normal Paper


So this week at Shopping our Stash might be a toughie - because don't we all hoard this special stuff? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? We want to see you use  a specialty paper you had to have: glitter paper, foil paper, honeycomb paper, corrugated paper, canvas, cork, etc.

I went big and used 2, woohoo! I was inspired by the sketch & photo at FUSION to dig out my wood paper.



Supplies: MME wood veneer paper; cork paper; Paper Smooches kraft twine; Flourishes rose heart stamp; Versamark and Pirate Gold EP; classic small circle Nesties; Studio Calico kraft butterfly stickers; AC Thickers letter stickers; lace and button from stash




The Thickers have been in my stash long enough that they are falling off the carrier sheet - pretty sure that qualifies them as ancient. Vicki over at Stamp Smiles is doing a Flashback Friday challenge celebrating old stash - this week is alphabets, and so I'm entering this over there as well. 



AND lest I forget, join in with the SOS crew and use some of that fabulous specialty paper! 

And you have until Monday, January 26th to join in!
xoxo,
Jessi

Wood paper! I have that stuff. I use it to die-cut; never thought to use it like you have. I might be a hoarder.

Wood veneer, cork, and lace? You would think that that was an odd combo, but you've masterly combined them brilliantly! Wow, what a gorgeous card! Love it!

ooooooooooooooh! this is a symphony of texture in card form, lol. i wanted to use wood veneer, but only have TINY scraps left. yours looks AMAZING tho! yowza!!!

ps: for any other brand, falling off the sheet would mean ancient, for thickers... (actually having said that, i notice they do seem to be better recently, they maybe changed factories or type of adhesive or something?) (i still usually sew those suckers on tho, lol; they've broken my heart too many times!!) :0
