Blogger's Challenge # 122: NO LAYERS!

This is always so HARD for me! When I first began stamping, I never added layers. Now that I have for years, it's hard to go back to that! I need some dimension!



I began by taking the new Ornament punch and making my own stencil with it. Then, I sponged the ornaments with Ruby Red and Old Olive ink onto the Kraft cardstock. I used my Paper-Piercing tool (now available without the kit for only $3.50!!!) and made tiny holes to hold my Silver Elastic Cord (my dimension!) I stamped the sentiment from Heard From the Heart but it wasn't quite complete. I used the Corner Rounder punch to round each corner and then sponged away all around the edge to frame the card.

Please take some time to see what the other players in this challenge were up to! You will not be disappointed!!!
