Stopped by AC Moore yesterday after stamp club to see if they had anything new. And they did! The first thing I saw was Tim Holtz dies. So happy that I will be able to get his flower die using a coupon.
But my coupon for the day was used to purchase this fantastic Martha Stewart punch. And once I got home just had to give it a try. It has 2 punches, the corner and the border and gives you the sizes that you can use so that they work together.
So I punched a piece of white card stock. To add some color, I masked off the loops and stamped the border using 2 Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps and worn lipstick and shabby shutters distress ink.
The tulip stamp is from "antique engravings" and was inked using the worn lipstick for the flower and shabby shutters for the leaves and stem.
The sentiment is from "birthday messages", stamped with the worn lipstick, which was also applied to the edges of the punched oval. The punched shape behind that was punched in white and edged with shabby shutters.
The pink and green layers of card stock were cut and the edges were rounded using a corner punch.
Thanks for visiting!
