It looks very cool with other border punches, too, but they are not SU punches so I cannot show them at a workshop. I do have a few Good Demo moments now and then.
This was a 5-minute card to make, since there is no stamping at all. I used the Very Merry sentiment last month, so I decided to do this one sentiment-free, and it can be for any occasion - a Winter birthday, whatever. Everything red on here is Riding Hood Red - DS paper, card base, punched medalion, scallop circle, and ribbon. The Snowflake is also SU, and I have a ton of them, so I opted to use it as the focal point in the middle. Too easy!
To celebrate this mind-bending accomplishment, I decided to take out one of my SU bulk-buy scallop square chipboard pieces and see if I could make up a project using it. Let me just say this about that:
News flash: The Crooked Stamper sustains minor injury while attempting to apply UTE to chipboard. Film at 11:00.
I took apart the chipboard into its parts, which you will see here momentarily. Let's take a peek at the carnage:First we have the center square. You can see some of the UTE actually stuck to the chipboard.
Next I tried to emboss the inner and outer frames. It was somewhere during this process that I accidentally touched the hot, soft, melty EP and I have what I think may be a first-degree burn on one of my fingers, and I think I may have scorched the fingerprint. Too bad we do not have fingerprint scans as our entry to the Day Job, or I could plead ... well, never mind.
So I thought these were really, really cool, but I am not sure how to use them. Yet. But I did want to show you that carnage I promised. In addition to the gold specs all over the place in the above photos, check out these:
