VC Rocks Blog Hop 4

I'm kind of sad that this is the last blog hop for the summer for VC Rocks. I've had a lot of fun participating and hopping around. You should have just come from Brenda's Stamping Corner. When I verified the link, I checked out what was on the front page of her blog. Oh my heck! If you scroll down to "Just Add Ink Challenge #30", check out that poodle skirt. That is cute! You should go back and look, especially if you like punched art.

I've mentioned a few times on here about how I have so much DSP and I never seem to use it. How I've taken to leaving it out on my desk so I will use it more. I'm not sure if this is good or not because I feel obligated to make a card with it when I see it. I must talk about it enough around here because one of my kids commented "check you out using the DP!" LOL I was happy they knew what I was talking about when I say DP.

Let's talk about the card. I'm so glad I got this set. The first time I saw it online I thought it was a must have and then I got the mini catalog in the mail and I didn't think I would use it enough to justify the purchase. I'm not sure what made me take the plunge, but I've made so many cards and still have a lot of ideas floating around in my head. This one I thought of a week ago and finally got it together.

To layer the Decorative Label punch, I punched two pieces from Early Espresso cardstock. I cut one in half length-wise. The second punch piece I cut between the bumps going toward the center making something of a heart shape. I mounted the ends first and then added the sides.

Stamps: Day of Gratitude
CS: Early Espresso, Old Olive, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, VV
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Misc.: Regals buttons, Linen Thread, Word Window punch, Decorative Label punch, Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon, and Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is Stamp with Jane. You may be making a stop at the hardware store after visiting her. You can go here to start at the beginning of the blog hop.

  11. Deborah, this is a beautiful card, and it is also made with a set that I haven't decided on yet, this might be the push I need.

    Thanks for the tips, too.
