Punch card for Practical Scrappers

Over on Practical Scrappers this week, the challenge is to use your punches, well, that was easy, this double loop is one of the new round the block punches by Martha Stewart. I have still to master the complexity of going round corners, but love the punch itself, so it doesn't matter. I punched three rows of coordinating cardstock (whitewash by Core-dinations). The embossing was done on that paper too, and sanded to show the detail. The birds are a MS punch as well, I added a tiny rhinestone for eyes

The rhinestones look like googly eyes, I promise you they are not! Pop over and see what the rest of the design team have come up with, there are some fabulous layouts on there too
Now be sure to come by tomorrow, I have done a video on the matchbox advent box. It has been quite a day, Steven Speilberg (aka Mike) thought he needed to zoom in on me, who does he think I am? Catherine Zeta Jones? Doesn't he know that women of my age are always shot in soft focus? He also kept muttering to himself. 'Don't talk' I hissed 'Just concentrate on what I am doing, and don't show me, just my hands' All this marital discord was faithfully recorded of course, so the editor (aka Mike) is busy deleting his mutterings and my hissings.
Then I was happily burbling on, stating the flipping obvious 'first you need matchboxes' I announce...... well yes, you would really if you are making a matchbox box. Duh! Then we filmed a whole segment - oh yes folks, we did it in segments, and I realised that I had shocking pink and black paint all over my hands, so if you want a good laugh, call back tomorrow, that is if we can ever figure out how to get this spectacular production onto the blog

BettyBee said...

En, the card is lovely! I think that punch is great - and it does seem to be a tricky one for the corners. I can SO identify with you on the video thing! Good luck getting it on the blog. Call me if you need help!
Hugs,
BettyBee

Enfys, I love that card, but I have to say that your story about the video had me cracking up! I can relate! Those men - think they know everything. Can't wait to see the result of your video. Maybe you should do a separate video of the outakes. Pam

Jessica said...

Oh how you always make me laugh!!! I can't wait to see the video and see what Mr Speilberg does with the editing! lol I love that card! The punch is great! Ms. Stewarts designers are really great at their jobs.
