It's Fun To Share!

I think it is fun to share sometimes, but sometimes things get a wee bit lop-sided. My DD came home for a visit this weekend and brought all her new stamping play toys. I created this card using her new Martha Stewart punch set, to create this loopy background to show case my new star stamp.

The stamp is from Impression Obsession, and I used Marvy markers and colored pencils and OMS to color it. I applied accents of Stickles for sparkle. My embellishments are olive pearl studs and a stripy woven bow to pick up the colors in the star. My loopy background is Rich Razzleberry card stock from SU!

Now, what makes this lop-sided, is that she needed to use my Nesties, my Stickles, Basic Grey papers, textured card stock, pop dots, gold cording, red ribbon, and borrow part of a Stamp TV kit ( cause I would not let her take the whole thing for weeks). I also gave up 8 sheets of Avery labels to wrap around Hershey Nuggets. Now ya all know I am just messing around....... what would we do with all of our extras, if not for our kids? Have a great evening. Go Phillies!

really like this card and love that punch - dumb question - but is it easy to work with? I know...its a punch! but sometimes I'm corner challenged! sure is beautiful with the scalloped edges!

I will leave the answer here also, about the punch. It comes with directions and a list of paper sizes that you must use in order for the loops to work all the way around. I used a 5x5 for this which is on the list. Dee said they have quite a few sets to choose from. I haven't looked yet. This is one of those items that you use your 40% or 50% off coupon with at Michaels. I think she said they run 24.99. You can ask Selma what she thinks of them also, cause I saw her use this one too. I see one loop at the bottom right that is a wee bit misshapen, but other than that it worked well.
