Cider Friend

Well, after I my mourning period ended yesterday (see previous post), I started stamping again. This card is made with the sketch that Beate had for a challenge several weeks ago. I didn't have a tool to cut out the circle with so I couldn't participate. Yes, I know, isn't is sad what a deprived stamper I am? (wink!). So, since I have to have every tool known to man that pertains to papercrafting, I began a search for some tool that would cut circles.

First, I got something at Michael's that did not work at all. Then, I carefully researched what all you gals were using for your circles and, sure enough, the coluzzle seemed to be the prevailing trend. I ordered my coluzzle and hadn't had a chance to rip it open until last night. I was perplexed by it a bit because I thought the mat they sent with it was just packing foam. Come to find out, you acutally need to use the packing foam looking thing. Being the mechanically inclined person that I am (NOT!!!!!), I figured out and it worked really well!!!!However, in keeping with my gluttonous pursuit of papercrafting tools, I will need to order the coluzzle companion so I can have the ability to make the appropriate layers. :)

Stampers: True Friend, Papertrey Faux Ribbon
Paper: really rust, apple cider dp, whisper white
Ink: really rust, choc. chip, and mellow moss SU markers
Accessories: coluzzle, scalloped scissors, large oval punch, river rock dS ribbon
Mellow moss grosgrain ribbon, choc. chip grosgrain ribbon

Have a great Sunday!
