I wanted to share another card I made a few weeks ago at a Stamp Camp I attended. This card is designed using a technique called Black Magic. Click here for directions. The lace was made using the SU Medallion stamp. I loved how this turned out and what a clever way in using this stamp. I submitted this card over at 'Digi Doodle Shop's Best' their theme was; Anything, I Say ANYTHING GOES!!! Over at 'Crafty Sentiments Digital Design' their theme was; Monochrome, plus a hint of color.
Here is step for making the lace using the Medallion stamp:
1. Stamp Medallion with grey ink on white cardstock.
2. Cut out the medallion; slit up one side of the medallion to cut out the center circle (leave the white dots).
3. Run the medallion cut out through the crimper several times to loosen the fibers of the cardstock.
4. Put adhesive on back of the cardstock where the lace will be applied.
5. Carefully gather the lace along the edge.
6. If all else fails, watch a video here.

I think the colors and image was a winning combination. Also over at 'Digital Tuesday' the theme was; use your scraps. I had the printed paper in my stash for awhile. So, all and all everything just worked perfectly this week. Don't you?

Punched Ballerina

I enjoy punch art and here is a Ballerina for you to enjoy. I have cased this idea from several sites about a year ago. The ballerina is made using SU punches. I love the pink and black combination. This card was submitted over at 'Cute Card Thursday' this week's challenge was What Ever!

- Using hot pink cardstock punch the following: one Bo Ho Blossom, one petal flower (cut leaving two petals), one 1 ½ circle (cut in half), one word window (cut tips off to make shoes, see photo) and one scallop oval.
- Using cream cardstock punch the following: two 1 ¼ circles and two word windows.
- Using black cardstock punch the following: one 1 ¼ inch circle (emboss and cut in half) and one ¾ circle (embossed).
- Using white cardstock punch one large oval (saying).
- Using white vellum punch out one scallop circle, then using temporary adhesive adhere the scallop vellum piece to scrap paper and rotate the scallop circle punch ¼ turn and punch again. This will give you the jagged edges to her tutu. Fold in half.
