CCMC441 Nailed It

It’s time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have a very fun sketch for you to try this week!



I used the new set, Nailed It with Urban Underground Designer Paper for my card this week!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Black cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Delightful Dijon cardstock.
  • Across the front is a 1/2 x 4 strip of Urban Underground DSP.
  • Two 2″ squares of Urban Underground Designer Paper were cut and had corners rounded with the Project Life Corner Rounder and overlapped on the front.
  • A 1-3/4″ square of Basic Black cardstock was stamped using the screw from Nailed It and Whisper White Craft Ink and corners rounded and adhered on the front.
  • The “pocket” was punched with the Best Badge Punch from DSP, rounded at the bottom, then “stitching” added with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The hammer, screwdriver and wrench from Nailed It Stamp Set were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Smoky Slate and cut with the Build It Framelits, colored the handles with Delightful Dijon, and tucked in the pocket.
  • The centers of the bolts in the Build It Framelits were cut from Silver Metallic cardstock and used as accents in the background.
  • Nailed it was stamped with Memento Black Ink in the lower right corner.

Oh my goodness….this is such a genius way to use this sketch! I love the badge punch pocket! What an awesome way to show off the tools!!! So, so clever!

My first thought was, “Awe. What a clever use for a pocket with the tools!” Way to step out of the box. Snaps for Connie!
