Today, as usual, Jen and Chrissie's samples at Less is More are truly inspirational and, despite a 'to do' list as long as my arm, I couldn't resist joining in with a quickie. The challenge is Piercing and I knew Stampin' Up's Essentials Paper Piercing templates would make short work of that! Come and see:
My cup image was stamped on Whisper White card stock and cut out with my Decorative Label punch. I used one of the templates in the pack to pierce a coordinating shape on some Rich Razzleberry card stock and cut around it to create a frame. I liked the way the dots on the 'steam' and the sentiment echoed the piercing. (Both the stamp sets AND the piercing templates are available free as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion - find out all about it here.)
I added a sprinkling of self-adhesive gems to help draw the eye into a triangular shape...
... and popped the label up onto dimensionals. There's quite a lot of layering in this card but I hope you'll agree that it remains nice and CAS!
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Patterned Occasions, Itty Bitty Banners (both Sale-a-bration freebies)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Card stock: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Other: Essentials paper-piercing pack, Basic Rhinestones, Decorative Label punch, markers

My Stampers 6 club order turned up late yesterday and I've been busy sorting it out today and putting it into parcels for my lovely ladies. Everyone gets a little handmade gift and a card, as well as their goodies and Sale-a-bration gifts, and I always get quite excited imagining them opening their parcels! If you'd like to join in with the fun, do let me know as soon as possible as there are only a couple of places left on my group starting in May.
My sons are both delighted that I've been so busy and have taken full advantage... they've declared it an xbox day in our house today!
See you soon,
