Well, here it is..another Wednesday time for WOYWW 163 at Julia's Stamping Ground.  I still don't know where Monday and Tuesday went!  Last week's WOYWW photo of my shelves, prompted me to do a thorough re-vamping of my space so here's a look at the cutting area.  I had it like this once before and changed it....bad idea.  This works so much better.

The little jars on the black shelf are from Ikea.  They're filled with button by color.  I wish I could hang that shelf but DH says it's too heavy. ;-(   Left to right are my Scor-Pal, Carl Cutter for thick items and my regular cutter. 

I also have a card that I made before vacation using Rubbernecker Stamps Dapper on Bike (535-04) and  my new favorite Spattered Screen Grunge Background (615).

I stamped the image in Versamark, then heat embossed with black detail EP.  I cut a mask of the image, then stamped the background over the image in using the "stamp off" method so the background would be lighter.  This one goes in my "male" cards file. 

Paper - Neenah Cream; PTI black
Ink - Versamark; Versafine black
Other - corner rounder; black embossing powder; heat gun; crop-a-dile; brads; mask

Pin It!

Love your cutting station a pity yes that you can't hang the little jars. That is one great Man card it is so hard to achieve and I think you mastered it with ease.
