Punches Challenge

Punches! Punches! Punches!

I love punches! They make cardmaking so much easier. I like using them in different ways than they were intended. In this card that I'm entering in the Punches Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, I used Fiskars' tree punch. As you can see in the squares (an EK Success punch) that run along the left side of the card, I used the same tree punch. It's not noticable right away but if you keep looking you will see them as a part of the same punch. I reversed the order of the layering of the teal and purple colors on the tree and the squares and offset them a smidge to create depth. This card was a lot of fun and super quick to create.

I just want to wish all of you a happy, healthy new year. I hope 2012
brings lots of health and honor and joy to you and those you love.
I'll have more cards up soon and will do some tutorials for some of the techniques I use in my cards. I just got the ability to make video so check back in soon.
I will also be having a giveaway of some stamps and dies as soon as I have 25 followers signed up. So spread the word and I'll randomly draw a name from all who sign up to follow my blog. Good luck!

Stripe-tastic Tuesday Trigger

Time for another Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World over at Paper Crafts magazine.

 Here's our inspiration photo from Cath.

And, my take on it.

I loved the stripes in the photo. So clean and strong.
I like the stripes in my card too, but I thought it needed a little accent color so I added the yellow. Much more cheery!

Here's a link if you want to get the info so you can create along with us.
Thanks so much for stopping by and supporting my work.
