Now that I have your attention...no I wasnt actually stamping while I was driving, but I was thinking about stamping while I was driving.... Scary huh???? Bwahahahahahaha. When I drop Jeff off at the airport its a 45 mins. drive back by myself and its pretty quiet in the car, well except for the voices in my head.....bwahahaha. Well, yesterday wasnt any different. I was envisioning my oval punch and making a large flower with it and it came to me.
But I will let the 'voices' give you a little tutorial on what came to me...............bwahahahaha!
First I found a marker (I don't have any SU markers,
Anyway, I sorta clamped the paper in the punch without actually punching it out, just enough pressure to hold it into place.
Then I using the marker and traced a line on the inside of the punch to make the paper punch 'stand-out' after it was punched.
Then I punched out the oval/petal. Pretty clever huh? This can apply to so many punches and you can use any color under the rainbow to trace.
Then, I sorta curled the petal and bent one end that was to go under the center so they would have some flat area to apply the adhesive (once I put center on it would be hidden anyway). then I stamped and punched out the center and applied it to my card (seen above).
I made my background paper using some of the other stamps from the "Priceless" set from Stampin' Up! .
Below you will see another card I made using the same technique.... It was so much fun I couldnt stop....bwahahahahahaha.
Have fun with this technique and remember to give moi some credit for this fun little idea.
