Shopping our Stash #218 - Mirror, Mirror!


This week at Shopping our Stash we have a great stash-buster - I know I hoard my fancy schtuff and I bet you do too! We want to see you use something reflective on your card - in my case, I went with super duper shiny metallic cardstock. I can see a blurry unwrinkled version of me in it ;)



Supplies: Paper Smooches animals; Cats Pajamas sentiment; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir & Sharpie markers; 1.5" circle punch; acetate; sequins from Neat & Tangled; AC metallic silver cardstock


And yep, that's a mini shaker in the balloon! It's exactly the right size for a 1.5" circle punch. I got that idea from a card my TMS teammate Melissa made a while back :) 

Come peer into the mirror with us!


xoxo,
Jessi
