The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Punch Around the Page Card

Hello Everyone:   I am back to post once again but low and behold, I am unable to post the project I was wanting to post featuring the I-Top Bradmaker tool once again... this weekend got real busy for me.  I received an unexpected visit this weekend from one of my boys who came home for the weekend.  We went out and about and visited with other family too and the weekend went real fast.   So, since I didn't accomplish much in the craft department this weekend, I went into my little stash of projects and found this enchanting little card that I made with a set of new Martha Stewart Punch around the page punches.  A corner punch with a nifty matching border punch that does an awesome job on various card sizes.  This set is called String Lace and it gives your cardstock such an elegant and lacy appearance, perfect for christmas cards.  I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circle and Scallop Circle dies on the front and a JustRite stamp from the Old Fashioned Christmas set that comes in a circle 31/4" size.  The other JustRite stamp I used on the inside is from the Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse set.  In addition, to frame the sentiment, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the inside. I colored the outside JustRite stamp with Copic markers and fitted some green rhinestones around the scalloped diecut.  Voila everyone...  These Martha Stewart Punch around the page punches are another great tool to have in your scrappin toolbox!!!
You can find most everything I have on my project at OC Scrapbookers 'n More online store. If you don't see it, email them and talk to Deb, she can get pretty much anything you want  -- talk to her about the punch around the page punches because I know they have them and they may be getting more...
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Deb @ OC Scrapbookers for sponsoring that awesome blog candy prize.  I want to wish all of you good luck on winning it too.  I will be drawing the winner Monday night at midnight and I will post the winner on Tuesday night.. so watch for your name as I will need you to send me your address if you are the lucky winner.  Again, good luck everyone -- you have one more day to comment by clicking on the blog candy pic and posting there.
Bye bye until Tuesday.....
