Use your punches?

Remember to peek in at Card Positioning Systems blog all of this week for fun sponsors and prizes. Today is My Favorite Things stamps, cute stuff.

Do you have punches? Do you use them? This card I'm sharing today uses all kinds of punches. Circles, Scallop squares, Flowers, Border punches, they are all fun. I also love that some come in shapes and sizes that layer together.
The little photo is part of an old photo my mom had of my sister and I playing with some neighbor kids. I just love the sunglasses and the curls!!!
I want to point out the glittered, flower punches. These are by McGill and they come in a whole range of sizes. I punched the flowers out of green cardstock and then coated each one with Aleene's Paper Glaze. This is a clear liquid that dries somewhat 3-D. While it was still wet, I sprinkled them with green glitter by Clearsnap. Oh how I love that color.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

  2. Beautiful card Linda. Love the glittered flowers and that B&W photo is set off beautifully with the colour combo you have chosen. I am also a huge fan of punches, own probably 50 or more of them, so I will have to go and investigate this site. Hugs from Desire
