Hello, Crafty Peeples!
If it's Tuesday, then it must be time to SHOP OUR STASH!   
 SHOPPING OUR STASH we are challenging you to use your favorite FAUX technique.

Here are a few links to some techniques you might use

My inspiration this week was The SCS Faux Wood Frame.   I used just a basic Bazzill Textured Blue Card Stock that I streaked with TH Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I used SB standard squares to cut the frames and embossed them with my Couture "Pinstripe" embossing folder.  Using the direct to the paper technique, I applied Vintage Photo DI to embossed ridges. Finally, I added a little Ranger Crackle Accents.

The is another of my Brown Paper Bag Cards.  
The Paper is Graphic 45's French Country Collection

I am mailing this off to a friend, so I created a matching box!
 The French Country Collection is so full of wonderful detail, that a lot of fussy cutting was not required.  The Rooster was just screaming to be used and I wanted the stamp for depth and more texture.  This wonderful Prima Rose, with a little Vintage Photo DI added, round things off nicely! 
I found this sunflower stamp while browsing through my stash of Unity Company Stamps.  Nice!
I included this coordinating tag with the card.  There is an opening for another tag or for a gift.
 When I make these cards, I alway leave one cubby empty so that the recipient can create their own tag or gift item.  I was really pleased with the outcome of this project.

My Teammates have created some fabulous projects using various Faux Techniques!  Please stop by their blogs and take a look!
