Default MAR07VSNL 5:00pm –Chat Thread - Piercing’s even your mom would Approve Of

Looks like Emily has not made it online just yet so I will go ahead and start the chat thread


MAR07VSNL 5:00pm – Piercing’s even your mom would approve of

Hosted by Emilymomto3boys
This challenge is Paper Piercing!! This is one of my favorite ways to dress
up a card. It is really simple to do, you don't need any cool gadgets, and
it doesn't require any additional layering or anything! All you need is
something that can pierce your cardstock. This can be a straight pin, a
thumbtack, a real paper piercing tool - whatever!

There are several ways you can pierce your paper. A few suggestions:

1. faux stitching - this is where you will pierce a border around something
and then use a marker or gel pen to connect the dots to make it look like
you used a sewing machine on your project. I personally love this because I
don't own a sewing machine - and this way I can fake it!

2. using a template - this is where you will use something that has a grid
for you to pierce along. You can use the SU template, a cross-stitching
grid, whatever. With this, you can do faux stitching, pierce a pattern in
the corners, or just a line along the edge of your project.

3. random punching - with this you can just pierce wherever you would like
to accent your image. I did this in the background of my Doodle This
example. I pierced all the dots from the image to accent the background
images.

4. faux mini eyelets - in this technique you will pierce the edges of your
project (be it an image or a scallop punch) and then run a white gel pen
along the edges of the pierced circles. It looks like a tiny eyelet was
placed there. I use this method a lot!

Anyway, there are several more ways to do paper piercing so have at it!

Uploading Instructions:
You have 45 minutes to complete this challenge.
If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma.
Copying and pasting the keyword is recommended to avoid typos
It is recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.
If you have any questions, I’ll be available in the chat thread. Happy Stamping !

Neat! I splurged on the Bodacious Bouquet template, so I'll have to dig that out and come up with something. Can't wait to play this - but I'll have to do it a bit later. Hungry baby needs me downstairs..... Have fun everyone!

Somehow, Jen, I think sprained muscles must hurt just as much. Heal!!!

I will upload in a while..... I 1)used a stamp set for the first time (SAB Happy Harmony- I just had to have it.......) and 2) I use my sewing machine more for stamping than I do for sewing these days..........

Thanks for the challenge!

Here's mine. It's kind of hard to see but I did paper piercing all the way around the flower. This was my first attempt at the trifold card.

Wow. I just noticed how pink everything came out. Must be the lousy lighting in my house!
