Good morning everyone out there in the blog-o-sphere!

Click here to see all the other amazing entries this week
That have used this sketch!

Theres 2 other items that I think are a must have, if you decide to purchase this set- the Hardwood stamp set, and the brick embossing folder. I have used the Hard wood EF today, and Ill try and get in a 3rd card this week using that embossing folder. Cards for guys are usually challenging, but with  The Nailed it bundle, the hard wood stamp and brick embossing folder, they are a snap!

heres my entry-
GDP- Using "Nailed it" bundle

Step 1-Die cut out one grey and one white hammer.

step 2-Cut the handle off the grey hammer, and glue the head onto the white hammer

Step 3-Make it look "used" but using the pool of colour in the lid of the Sahara sand ink pad (which you squeezed first) and, with your aqua painter, colour around the edges

ruff it up-with Sahara sand ink

 Step 4-Stamp a piece of crumb cake card stock (3 3/8" x 5 1/4")with the hardwood stamp. I cut roughly 1/3 off and backed it with the same sized whisper white piece, but I now realise that the linen thread hides the cut, so this isn't necessary.
Base card
Step5-(if you are doing it my way)  Glue your stamped crumb cake piece to the whisper white. Choose where you would like your "nails" to go. Using the fine tipped glue pen, I glued a line of "nails" about 1/3rd of the way along my crumb cake card stock. Punch out some "nails"from the owl builder punch with silver foil card stock and add them to your glue line. You now have Nail heads!

Use the fine tipped glue pen to add "nail heads"

Step 6-add some linen thread to your crumb cake piece of card stock.
Silver emboss the scattered nails from the "nailed it" stamp set to the lower left corner of the card.
arrange your hammer over the linen thread and nails

Step 7-Back your crumb cake feature piece with a piece of chocolate chip card stock (3 1/2" x 5 3/8")
Then, silver emboss the "nailed it" sentiment to a piece of chocolate chip card and use the emboss/die frame out of the build it framelit dies that come in the bundle (10% off if you buy it as a bundle!) to cut out (and automatically emboss!!) an awesome frame. Using dimensional's add your sentiment to the card front. 

Step 8-Add your chocolate chip card front to a whisper white card. 

I hope you enjoyed todays card and tutorial. Id love to hear what you think! 
Have an awesome day!
