Bloggers Challenge Week 9 - Get Punchy

(Card by Gerrie Johnnic)



This weeks bloggers challenge was to use punches on your cards. I've got a special guest (my mom) on my blog today - sharing her "get punch" challenge card with you. Mom doesn't blog, but she's a talented stamper - I told her she could send them to me and I'd share them with you.


After all the bad storms that rolled through our area last night, I didn't know if I'd make this weeks challenge. I've never seen so much rain come down in so little time. My husbands work van was literally vibrating in the driveway, the pool water is overflowing and wouldn't you know it at exactly 10PM, the sump pump decided to die! Of course all the stores are closed, the 24 hour places are not picking up their phones. Good thing everything is in plastic totes. DH left at 4:30AM to get to Menards first thing to get us pumped out.


So, enough of my sob story.....


Here's my card for the "get punchy" challenge. This card uses the Filmstrip Technique idea from the TJNL, except, I used my SU Spiral Punch to create the look of a filmstrip.

Card Details:
Stamps - Jolliest Time of the Year, Holidays & Wishes
Card Stock - Black, Purely Pomegranate, Very Vanilla
Ink - Black Stazon, Purely Pomegranate, Blush Blossom
Other - Aquapainter, Spiral Punch, 1 3/8" square punch, 1 1/4" square punch
Holiday Harmony DSP, Mini Library Clips (Holiday Mini)

Have a great weekend!
