Creation Station Tricks of the Trade

Tricks of the Trade AKA Stamp Hacks --
this is our theme for the Creation Station October Blog Hop.
Are you ready for it...


A couple simple stamp hacks perfect for all your Halloween and fall season stampin'.
Just grab your Beautiful Bouquet Framelits and a pair of Paper Snips and you can have handmade cornstalks to put in a pumpkin patch in no time at all.
Trim away the leaves then clip the stems to create a cornstalk shape.
For barbed wire simply tie off a piece of Bakers Twine, I used Basic Black, to your card front and then add little ties all the way across.  The trick is when making the barbs is to tie longer pieces of twine off and then trim them short and spiky.
Next stop on the hop is with the fabulous Denita Wright.  Enjoy!
