Here's a triple challenge card I put together this morning using this BRAND NEW Tool Shed background stamp. I love this stamp and know that I'll be using it often for those hard-to-make masculine cards.
I started with a Baja Breeze card base and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. The next layer is a strip of crimped Crumb Cake, which was sponged with Crumb Cake ink. The next layer is Textured Soft Suede cs that was also sponged with Soft Suede ink. Finally, I stamped the Tool Shed image with Soft Suede ink onto Crumb Cake cs, ran it through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice die, sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink and added the four silver brads. This panel is adhered to the card with several Dimenisionals. I then stamped the sentiment with Soft Suede ink onto Baja Breeze cs, snipped one edge, sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink and adhered it with Dimensionals, too.
Phew! TFL - Regina

I've been on the fence about this b/g stamp. It is perfect for a masculine card, but I couldn't get a feel for it. I have the totally tool stamp set too, you'd think I would make the connection. I may have to reconsider my order and add this to the list. Always looking for masculine ideas and yours is definitely inspiration! Great job Regina!
