WTHeck Embellishments!!

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash this is a good one for most of us.  Have you gone through your stash lately and picked up some things and immediately asked yourself "why did I buy this?" well this is the challenge for you. Take that :WTHeck item and feature it on a project. I didn't have any difficulty with finding things I've been gathering for YEARS, I have more brads than any one person could ever use in 3 lifetimes and lately I have not been using I guess since those stick-on enamel dots were available and much easier to use, but for my project I did have to use brads, but that is not my WTHeck item, have a look you might remember them.

Tin box and there they are still in their cello package.

Flower Fusion from Stampin'up and I rarely use those colours. And I know there will be lots of readers that are saying how great they are, and love the colours. 

So on with how I made them look good.

When I ordered some things from a friend she tucked in the two piece layering die set as a freebie and I immediately grabbed some cardstock and cut it then tucked it away for safe keeping, so when I saw the theme I knew it was perfect for the base of my Flower Fusion felt flowers. I made an oxide ink smooshed background and since the die cut was 5.5 inches I decided to make a mini slimeline card. I also went through many many any containers of brads to use as centers and decided the gold gave them a bit of pizzazz 

Closer look at the flowers. 

Finished the inside with a scrap of green and a felt flower.

Thanks for stopping by today and head over to the SOS BLOG and check out the WTHeck embellishments the rest of the team have used.

I'm sure I've got some flowers similar to this. Great idea to layer them up like that and use the brads. It's a beautiful summery card with the blue sky background. x

I have some of those flowers! I used some of them a lot for a while but then left the rest in the tin collecting dust. Maybe I need to go pull them out again since I still have time for the challenge. BTW - I really like what you did with the ones you used.

Yup, I have a lot of stuff like that in my stash, and I wonder why I ever bought it, most of it from Dollarama! Especially embellishments that are now too bulky to go through the mail with a first-class stamp. They went through the mail just fine back then, but not now. But in any event, your flowers are gorgeous and I really love these colours - they have a '60s vibe to me, which I adore! Your card is a beauty! I still haven't gotten into the habit of making slimline cards so thanks for the inspiration! Sending hugs from Nova Scotia!
