My new border punch...

These are my first creations using my new EK Success border punch....

...and also my new Papermania stamp shown below...

I used K&Co recycled cardstock, and my Papermania brad making kit as shown in one of my earlier posts.

The border punch is called "Diamond Lace"...it looks very sleek and even folds flat for easy storage.

Well, I gotta dash...got ironing to do and all the usual pre-work chores before the next intallment of X Factor tonight!

TTFN peeps.

is it right to say 'phwoar' when you see a card? Well I did anyway!

I agree with Sandra.. It made me drool! The first thought that came to mind was Hotel Chocolat cappucino chocolate! I am salivating just thinking about it! So delicious and indulgent, and so is your beautiful card!

Hugs,
Chris xx

P.S. Ordered some of that Elzybells white ink based on your commenters' recommendations, as I have also had difficulty finding a white ink that gives enough of a contrast on kraft and dark colours, so keeping everything crossed! The Papermania goodies and the EK Success punch you've showcased here are also on my wishlist now!! You're costing me a fortune, woman!! ;o)

Chris said...

Hi Sarita and WOW, this is a fabulous card, it reminds me of chocolate creams....yummy! Your new stamp and punch are gorgeous. I just bought one of these new EK success punches (the notebook style one) and they take up so much less space which is great, this one looks gorgeous too. I've been catching up with your stunning makes and noticed that you were trying to find a good white ink, the Elzybells white ink was suggested and I just wanted to say that it is fantastic, I got some a couple of weeks ago as I was having the same problem. I also have a link http://stamptv.ning.com/page/stamping-lifestyle-weekly (scroll down to the August 15th issue and the pdf with the photography equipment on it is the one you need) to that infinity board I mentioned before. I've made mine up and it works great and is really easy to put together. Take care and have a good week. Chris xx

Steph said...

Oooh la la! Very elegant! Love that new punch, might have to invest in that myself! Can't believe you bought that Papermania stamp- I was so close to buying it when I bought the other one!!

Michelle said...

Ooh Sarita, you do keep doing this to me. I looked at this stamp and decided I'd already got enough damask patterns, These are amazing, beautiful colours and perfect stamping and that punch!!
