Shopping our Stash #191 - Not So Heavy Metal


Now here's a fun dig-through-your-stash challenge from us at Shopping Our Stash this week - use your oldest metal embellishments! For me that would definitely be eyelets - the last time I purchased any was at least 5-6 years ago, and I still have enough to last me until the apocalypse. Maybe not in every colour but just about! It's been so long since I used them that I had to dig through my drawer to find my eyelet setter (one of the cats has claimed that drawer as her resting spot while I craft...and usually before resting she has a paw through to see if there's anything she can pick up & drop on the floor).


Supplies: Cars & sentiment from Unity; burlap stamp from Market Street Stamps; Brushed Corduroy distress ink; papers from MME; eyelets

Super simple! The most time-consuming part of the card was finding the eyelet setter.

So what metal pieces do you have lingering in your stash?   join in with the SOS crew: 


And you have until Monday,March 9th to join in!
xoxo,
Jessi

Eyelet setter, as in hammer and setter? If so, I'm impressed! I used a Crop-A-Dile.

I'm glad that I never started hoarding eyelets, because, like brads, they would rarely get used. But I really like the placement of these on your fabulous card! Nice touch.... And I'm glad the cat allowed you to use your eyelet setter.

They look fabulous on your card with the masculine theme and fun textures!! LOVE IT!

Ask my daughter about the brads and eyelets, she has been helping organize. What an awesome masculine card, great sketch too.

I love these vintage vehicles done on dsp, and those eyelets are the perfect masculine touch to them! Nice card!

Lindsey said...

Eyelets. Yep, have a few. Although brads may have come first. They add a perfect touch to this masculine card!
