I promised I would be back today I'm actually managing to do that! Get me!! lol!
So, here is my third and final (for a while) Monster hugs card. I added a lightweight packet of sweets and this was fine, it didn't tip the card over at all :-))))
The background layer today was given texture with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder from the Autumn/Winter catalogue *Reminder: This catalogue only runs 'till the end of the month! The same goes for the Monster Hugs and Valentines goodies (actually, these end the 27th January, see them all HERE)
So, here's today's card for you...
FREE Banner Blast stamp set (Sale-a-Bration sneak peek. This, the best promotion of the year starts 28th January '14!!) and a FREE matching punch will also be available.
Why not join my stamp club to get lots of FREE all year? See HERE for the details :-)
OK, so I know a lot of you probably already know this but when I shared it at a class a few weeks ago a couple of ladies didn't and loved how easy it made punching small scraps :-) This is for those blog readers who are still struggling with punching those small pieces of card :-)))))
So, who struggles with waste? Do you have lots of little bits of card you want to use and know you won't be able to punch them out when you've stamped on them 'cause they're too small? Or of course if you stamp an image an have to cut it down so it fits the correct way in the punch (that's ME!!) I did this with the banners this week to get the most form the card then I realised I had stamped them all the "wrong" way to punch them out ;-)
then you have to try to line it up in the punch, realllyyy fiddly! If you can get it to line up at all that is!
so, here's my Top Tip! Add the small piece of stamped card to the very corner of a post-it note (sticky note)...
and then you can guide it in and hold it in place much easier! All ready to punch!
OK, It's as simple as that. I really hope it helps someone out there reading this!?! Please do let me know...
Thanks as ever for stopping by today :-)
Stampin' hugs from me,
