Shopping Our Stash is Holding an Intervention ~~ No Ink.

Hello and welcome to the new challenge at Shopping Our Stash!!! Challenge #347 is NO INK!!! There are lots of choices and if you check out the main blog you will see how it's done. You could use pencil crayons, or dies and there is always patterned paper just don't use ink. I went the easy route and did all die-cuts.


I have had this die for quite a while and I got it with our son's birthday in mind so this will be for his birthday in July. I don't have to worry about posting as he doesn't read my blog or follow me on instagram or even twitter.  Almost the last piece of Stampin'up black cardstock and the copper is also from Stampin'up and I'm sure it is two years old and only cut once for a card a few weeks ago. 


I carried the "ink free" to the inside  using dies. The copper layer on this is from a package I bought at least 5 years or more ago. 

I'm entering this in:
Use Your Stuff ~~ #305 Travel

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join Shopping Our Stash for the Ink Free challenge and head over to the main blog and check out what the rest of the team have done without ink.

...and even if your son did follow you, he's a boy, and most boys aren't into reading craft blogs! Even my boy-husband would be oblivious if I posted something for him! This is super-cool and very masculine. Love it. Love the bada$$ looking colors!

This is amazing, Barb! I always feel a little *itchy* when I make a card without stamping/inks, but this no ink card is perfection!
