Brad earings

What a great gift for Christmas or a special friend's birthday! I love the matchbox die it really makes this project a wow by making a mini pedestal on top. The brads are the antique and the back of them where cut off and sanded and attached to french hooks. The paper on the matchbox die is from beyond the garden and the mini brads where used in the flower centers.

Hello Doily

This was on display board at the downline meeting I went to. I love the look of black and white and the pink satin ribbon is just the right softness to finish the card off right.

Stamp the doily in veramark and wet emboss with white embossing powder. Cut and mat the pieces in pretty in pink and thread the ribbon through the center.

Unique Corners

Please forgive the picture of a picture but I had to show this. What makes this a wow is looking at your punches in a whole new light instead of just punching shapes why not see what else they can do?

This card is framed with the decorative label punch and it will always match for layering since the card stock can only go in so far on the bottom but not the top of the punch.

Need a Bear Hug?

I really like this bear he looks as if he's ready to give you a great big hug. When making this card you might want to consider making a full sheet of the background and make several cards at once. I find it especially helpful to me to have several cards on hand so they are ready to go when I need to send a card out quickly.

I love the fake brads under the bear it's just 3 hole punches showing the matting. What a great way to save time and money by using what is already in the card's design. The colors are night of navy, crumb cake and soft suede.
