Papertrey Ink Stamp-A-Faire 2017!

Hello, everyone! I hope you've been enjoying this year's Papertrey Ink Stamp-A-Faire festivities! The theme of this year's event is "Traditional Anniversary Gifts" and I'm presenting Year 5 (wood).

Inlaid Wood Cards

There were a couple of reasons I chose to take on the fifth anniversary tradition. For one thing, wood is such a versatile material. It exudes the warmth of nature and its texture absolutely cannot be beat.

I grew up with a carpenter father and learned early on to appreciate the wide variety of styles you can achieve with wood.

Not only that, I joined Papertrey Ink as a stamp designer on their fifth anniversary, so that occasion holds special meaning for me personally.

In today's tutorial, I’m going to teach you a wood inlay technique that I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do.

This technique uses real wood paper or veneer, so you get all the benefits of the gorgeous woodgrain on your projects. If you don’t have those materials on hand, don’t worry! You can use two different shades of neutral cardstock stamped or stenciled with woodgrain for a similar effect.

Head over to Nichole's blog to see the video and catch the whole tutorial. I've linked my supplies below just in case you had any questions. Just an fyi, the wood paper I initially bought is no longer available, so I've linked something very similar that I believe will work just as well. Thank you so much for joining me and I hope you enjoy the rest of this wonderful event!
