Really fun challenge for the Friday Mashup this week! (Yes, I know it is Sunday, but hey, I play when I can.)
- Make a project using “Paper Piercing”.
- Or Make a project using the colors “Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red & Early Espresso”.
- Or “Mash it Up” and create a project with the “Color Combo & Paper Piercing”.
I decided to try and make a heart shaped card using my new Framelits, but I wasn’t sure if they were able to cut through two pieces of cardstock. The answer, as you can see below, is that yes you can. I will tell you, though, that it is not recommended by Stampin’ Up or Sizzix. So only do what you feel comfortable with. You can see the hinge for the card on the top left, where I kept the fold inside the Framelit. For the paper piercing part of the Mashup, I poked a hole in each of the scallops of the base heart. And really, even though it looks black, that is Early Espresso!
Stamps: Word Play, Woodgrain
Ink: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso, Blushing Bride
Other: Hearts Collection Framelits, Small Heart Punch, Big Shot, Paper Piercer
I stamped the Early Espresso heart with Very Vanilla Craft Ink and the Woodgrain background stamp to make it look more like wood. I can’t remember the last time I used that ink pad. I was pleasantly surprised that it worked great!
