Squidgy Pins Wooden Shapes

Last week I was playing with some rather nice wooden shapes that come in laser cut sheets.
They are called Squidgy Pins and are sold by Traplet Publications
and they come in lots of different designs and themes ....you'll want them all ....I did !! He he
 
Here's a close us of some of my favourite designs above although I love 'em all
They are so easy to use, the shapes are just held in place in the sheets in a couple places
All you have to do is simply use your craft knife to release them.
Once they are out you not only have the shapes to work with you're also left with a fab stencil to use on your project too.
You can colour or decorate the shapes in many ways
I used Tim Holtz distress inks, stains and paints,
you could also add glitter of even heat emboss them and use some of the fabby Frantage that so in fashion at the moment.
I tried stickles glitter glue on the star fish ...it worked well don't you think ?
The others I gave a coat of Glossy accents the photo below does not show them off to their best as its a dull day here so I had to use the flash on my camera,
but you'll see them at their best when I use them on my cards in the coming weeks when I'll point them out to you again.

Hope you have a great day
Thanks for popping by ...
Hugs xxxx

and then moving on to Distress inks and DI Pens
which she uses with such finesse.
Jenny's colouring is 1st class and her cards .....well see for yourself
they are nothing less than beautifully breathtaking !!!
This lady has bags of crafty talent and is going places !!!
I'm so proud to have Jenny on my Design Team.
