Hey Mister Tool Guy with Waffleflower

I'm so happy to be sharing this card today!  This card was made with stamps from Waffleflower!  They are a new company with fun and clean designs and I'm so proud to say that my good friend Nina is the owner and designer of these wonderful stamps and dies!  Nina has long been designing cards and digital templates, so it's natural for her to move on to stamps and dies:)  So let's get to my card, shall we?

Do you have a tool guy in your life?  Then you need this set.  It's called Hey Mr and has a ton of fun tools and tool related stuff.  For my card, I envisioned a pegboard full of hanging tools and here's what I came up with!

First I stamped my tools and fussy cut them.  For the two-colored tools, I simply used 2 different ink pads.  This is super easy to do when the line between the colors is a straight line.  Just ink up one side of the stamp (use the straight edge of your ink pad along the line on your stamp) and do the same with the other color being carefully not to overlap.  

The next step was to create a pegboard with my Cameo (pick up the free file here).  To get the full effect of the little holes in the pegboard, I mounted the card panel to a white card base.  I did "dirty" up my pegboard with some blended ink (can't have unused tools, lol!).  I also distressed each of the tools with this handy ink applicator.  Here's a look at the entire stamp set...

I hope you check out the other designs over at Waffleflower!  Thanks for stopping in today:)
