But I'm back today with another card using the fabulous set from the new Holiday Mini Catalog, Day of Gratitude and the new Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is wonderful to work with. It's cardstock weight and textured and has the most delicious fall colors -- Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard and Early Espresso.
I've had several ask me how I got the larger contrasting mat around the new Decorative Label Punch so I thought I would give you a little tutorial. This was not my idea -- I've seen several others do a similar technique. But this is how I've been doing mine. Click on the small photos to view them larger ...
Step One: Punch two side pieces using the Decorative Label Punch. You can punch these just from the edge of a piece of cardstock or you can use those narrow strips that always seem to end up in your scrap basket. You only need to punch out about 1/2" of the side of the punch shape. Again, Punch two of the side pieces.
Step Two: Punch two pieces from the top or bottom of the punch (they are identical). Again, you only need to punch a piece that is about 1/2" deep.
Step Four:Using SNAIL adhesive on the back of your label (the full label punch that you have stamped on), line up the four outline pieces so there is an even border on all four sides of the punch. Adhere the label to your project using SNAIL or Stampin' Dimensionals.
That's all there is to it! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
Have fun with this quick technique and great new punch and Happy Stamping!
It's not too late to place orders for the new ribbon and DSP samplers from the BIG Idea Book & Catalog. I'm taking orders now for a new batch of ribbon and DSP samplers -- I generally order supplies once a week and then ship to you within 10 days of your order. More information can be found HERE.
Also, the Test Tube Gift Card Holders have been very popular and I continue to send out kits as quickly as I can put them together. Have you ordered yours yet?
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you found some ideas and inspiration here and I hope you come back again soon!
