LOC Dear Friend

I had to pop back with a second post to show you something different - well for me anyway!

This cute little deer was part of a Blog Candy I won a year ago and it has sat on my desk looking for a home - it is printed on actetate and  I was not sure how to use it, so decided on adhering it to the Spellbinders S5-025 Label Seventeen and using the Die as a mask for sponging with Scattered Straw Distressing Ink.  Little Roses from Wild Orchid Roses, along with Kaiser Half Pearls create a frame along the lower edge of the Die.

until I was cleaning up my desk and decided to use it with the Layers of Color Sent With Love art stamp set  - so cute and definitely a touch of whimsical

I was also motivated my the challenges over at Cards Magazine to create cards using at least three different border punches! I have used the Stampin' Up Eyelet Border Punch (from the top to the bottom) Floral Doily Accent Shapeabilitie from Spellbinders and the Picket Fence by Martha Stewart for my three border punches.

This card is also for the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - flowers
Digistamps 4 Joy - anything goes
Inky Impressions - punches or dies
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Critter Sketch - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes

There's Magic in the Air - Punches and Cuts (at least 3 die cuts or any type of punches)

  3. Hi Linda,
    I popped over to comment on your entry for the Stamp Man challenge but your link does not go to the post so can't leave a comment there, sorry. It always helps to link directly to the post rather than to your main blog. I've scrolled through but can't find it which is a pity as it looks lovely and I would like to see it closer!
