GETTING PUNCHY…...

The SUO challenge for this week is punches…..I wish I read the whole description before diving to make my card….it said punch art or use punches…I only used ONE.  However, I was afraid of this punch -- and with the help of a tutorial or two I figured it out.  (they figured it out for me and after several attempts, I was able to follow directions).  I am so not the mechanical stamper.  Stamp a ma jig?  Um, no thank you.  Mine collects dust.  Everytime I pull it out it feels like rocket science figuring out how to use it.  Anyway, I am so busy unpacking, etc, that I go at my stamping with a vengeance, in a "get it right the first time" sort of way.  This one came together pretty quickly, and then I made a sort of matching one that I posted in my gallery on SCS for the color challenge.  They were fun to color, and I like this set a lot.  I had to resort to some edges that are not in the current catalog because um…..we have no edges IN the current catalog.  My biggest lament since losing blendabilities.  What's that you say?  These look like I USED my blendabilities to color them?  (both cards, this one and the one on SCS??) I'll never tell……hey - maybe I will go ahead and post the other card here so you can see both, yes? yes.  Here goes:
Double header this week!! And actually, I used another punch on this one! The tree punch.  I think this little guy is the bomb.  Too cute.  The cuteness bomb.  Okay - so I just MIGHT have dug out the old blendabilities for this one.  But come on…..don't they work well?? I could not send them back.  In fact, I really wanted to ask everyone who was sending them back if I could BUY THEIRS.  How I love these markers!!  Okay well enough tattling on myself…..only one punch, discontinued edges, discontinued markers, OH MY!! ;) Happy Tuesday everyone….have fun stamping, Until next time, Karen  PS Please leave me a comment if you read this far…..you are a trooper!!

These are really cute cards. I must ask, if you don't use a stamp-a-ma-jig, how do you get your sentiments straight? Personally, I can't live without mine. I am so very curious!!
