Good morning girls! It's Wednesday and so I have several things to share with you today. Be sure to make sure and see the Flutter By card and my Pink Papery Studios project too!
This week for the Be Inspired challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge, we were asked to use punches in a unique way. Well.
I actually started my journey as a punch artist. I visited the local stamp store for the first time in search of punches. I finally agreed to attend a stamp club meeting and told everyone I was not a stamper. My friend still likes to kid me about that today. I used to have tons of punches but I hadn't used them in years and so this past summer I cleaned out almost all of them and donated them. Well, I sold a few and donated the rest. So I felt really unprepared for this challenge. After lots of thinking, I decided to create my own punched border!
I started by using my scalloped border punch from Stampin Up! After marking the center of every other scallop I used one of my hand held punches to add the stars. It's pretty simple but I'm really starting to like it!!
Paper Makeup Stamps had their March release party this past weekend. The day was full of lots of really great cards, some fabulous chatter and three very cool challenges! One of the challenges Christi issued was a color challenge: Green, Orange and White. So that is where my color combo for this card came from. The stars were stamped in Kiwi Kiss and then the quote was stamped over in Memento Tuxedo Black. The base layer was stamped with the stars and flourish too in Tangerine Tango to add some oomph and interest! Just one little button to finish it off. Not an over the top card but I really wanted to keep the focus on the quote! Be sure to visit the store blog and try out the challenges too - there are prizes up for grabs this week!
Head over to the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and see what the rest of the team created!! You will not be disappointed -- they are all sooooo talented!!
Have a beautiful day girls!!
