This month at Young Crafter's Unite there is a challenge to use either a new technique you've learned or one that's tried and true. Danielle from Neat and Tangled is offering up an extra $20 GC to her store, so I definitely wanted to play along, there are some adorable stamps there that I've had my eye on! I did use the one set of her's I have, and made tons of the little envelopes to pile up in the wheelbarrow from wplus9.
I also used Mega Mat Stack #4 and the double ended banner die from PTI, used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, used Paper Smooches "Alphadot" to create the "mail" sentiment, and "Halloweenies" for the spider and "Halloween Happy" sentiment. The button is from PTI and the pearl from Recollections. The twine is from the Twinery. So what is the technique I used? Fussy cutting...I love doing that with any Paper Smooches stamps, but also this little envelope, it was really easy to cut out. I also used embossing, but you cannot tell at ALL in the pic and I'm kind of disappointed. The Mat Stack is embossed with woodgrain, it looks really cool in person.
Another fun note, when I got my order from Danielle at Neat and Tangled, not only was the stamp set there, but so was a handwritten note to me, some pink baker's twine, and a mini clothespin in a little glassine bag! It was such a nice touch :)
