Love my leather belt

Hi all I had a go at making a  faux leather belt for the very first time for this very cool buckle card that Rhonda Fawcett from my team showed us at a play day recently.

I'd seen faux leather/alligator skin on blog posts but it wasn't till I saw it in the flesh that I thought I have to have a go at that as it was so shiny. And now I've done it so easy!!!! All you do is cover the piece of card with clear embossing powder & before you heat set it create a pattern with your bone scorer & viola :)

This was the 2nd project at my Masculine class the other night with it's matching gift card holder & it was a real hit with all the ladies so a big thanks Rhonda!

Stamp sets: Motorcyle (retired), Oval All, Sandy Speckles (wheel)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Punches: Corner Rounder, Word Window, 1-3/4" Oval, Curly Label
Other: Mat pack, paper piercing tool, clear embossing powder, heat gun, vintage brads, square lattice embossing folder
Techniques: Big Buckle card, Faux Leather, Gift Card Holder

UPDATE: Retired items are now appearing on the retired list there's a link on the top RHS of my blog which takes you to the status at the end of the previous day; so far jumbo eyelets have gone (that was a good prediction of mine but pretty obvious), metallic eyelets & now the punches (they're normally the first).

There are 3 stamp sets that are 40% off which is phenomenal & my Gifted set is on it's way - phenomenal value at $28.77 (clear mount) RRP was $68.95. So if you haven't check out the Retiring List I'd do so ASAP as once it's gone it's gone forever.

Enjoy your weekend & happy stampin'
