I have been stamping a long time now – almost 15 years. And the one thing I am still not real good at is cutting out stamped images.
(Okay, okay, I know there is way more than one thing I am not good at but for the sake of my self esteem let’s stick to one a day, shall we?!)
I would never have even attempted a card like this if I needed to cut out each image as they would have look uneven and choppy. Punches to the rescue!
The Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and adhered to an Old Olive card. The "Noel" is from Greetings of the Season (Wood $19.95 128030, Clear $14.95 128033) and the ornaments are stamped in Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Old Olive ink.
I added a bow of Whisper White Baker’s Twine to two of the punched ornaments and thought I was finished. But the card look really flat so I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels (on sale right now!) to the card and it made all the difference.
So, I gotta ask – do you like cutting out stamped images or do you prefer to let punches and framelits do the work?
Thank You Thursday! Today only!
