Hello everyone!!!. It has been so long since my last work. After the busy summer, holidays, mother's and mother's in law visits and the beginning of another school year... I'm ready to start another year of crafting. I didn't start this month on time and I have to apologize to my Crafty Gals for posting this late. The due date was on the 5th but I forgot to make my card on time and then everything run really late. I managed to make it though. Our hostess this month is the lovely Jeanette and the challenge was this:
The Simple Plan: Make a card using a punch somewhere on it. Easy Peasy!
The Advanced Plan: Make a card where you use punches to make something they were not originally intended for. For example: Use oval punches to make a frog, use circle punches to make a snowman, use the stocking punch to make a stick horse, use a heart punch to make a Christmas tree, use a variety of punches to make a chef or witch or elephant, etc.
I chose the Simple Plan. I don't have many punches. I bought this punches specially to make a Kitti Caracciolo's Hydrangea. I fall in love with her flower last year and since then I meant to do this but never tried it. So this challenge put me in the mood to try it. This card is going to my friend Karina's birthday (I hope she is not visiting my blog for a couple of more weeks...LOL!!!) Here is Kitti's Hydrangea Tutorial:
And here is my card:
For this card I used:
Cardstock: White from Recollections, Old Olive and Lavender Lace from Stampin Up
Ink: Sahara Sand from SU
Stamps: Curly cute from SU
Accessories: Circle punches, Hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart, Flourish die and Fishtail die from MFT.
Thanks for looking!!!
