The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Corner Punches

What a snapshot is to your life, your life is to eternity, so wouldn't it be nice if eternity captured you smiling? ~Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com

Good morning!
We have a new Crash your Stash Challenge starting at The Outlawz Challenges which will run through August 14, 2021

Our generous Sponsor this month is Twinkle Lane Designs with a prize of an 8£ gift card to store.

Our cue this month is Corner punches

We all have those small corner punches that we bought back in the day to add a little dressing to a layer or hold an image. Well now is the time to pull one out and rediscover how amazing they can be!

The punch I am using is an old EK success punch. I don’t even know if you can purchase this one anymore that’s how long I’ve had it. And it is probably one of my favorite corners as it always takes layers up another level without overpowering the layout or image used.


Supplies:

Image printed on Stampin Up! whisper white card stock
Card stock from The Paper Studio (Base) and Stampin Up!
Diamond glaze from Judikins
Embossing folders from Momenta & Stampin Up!
Pro Markers
Rhinestones from Local Dollar Store

Sketch used for inspiration: Poetic Artistry/Mojo Monday week 3



Now come on over to The Outlawz Challenges to play along with us or one of the other challenges that are always in process!

Happy Happy Anniversary ...

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life — to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting? ~George Eliot (1819–1880), Adam Bede, 1859

Hi All,
Today I’m sharing an Anniversary card that I made for my daughter and son-in-law.

I really like how this card looks in real life. Since I used a beautiful shimmery type cardstock, I had a lot of challenges trying to photograph. I just did the best I could.



This card was inspired by a card I found on HERE on hmadeboutique.com

This is another card that I do not have a supply list for because it appears I threw it away along with several others during a cleaning frenzy. I’ve tried to remember what I can but I’m sure I’ll miss something.

Supplies
  • Cardstock from Stampin Up!
  • Die from Stampin Up!
  • India Ink from Memories
  • Sentiment ftom Unity Stamps
  • Shimmer paper from The Paper Temptress
  • Vellum scrap

Thanks for stopping by!

3-D Graduation

Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable. ~Wendy Wasserstein, unverified

Hi All,
Using an Easy shadow box tutorial from Jennifer McGuire Ink found HERE, I made graduation card for my niece. She recently graduated NAU as a dental hygienist. We are so proud of her and I know she will do amazing things with her life!

This card was so easy to make dut it sure looks like it took some time to put together!



I’d give a supply but I can find it right now but will update post when I do.

Thanks for stopping by!
