Gingersnap Creations has so many wonderful challenges, and I wish there was time to do all of them, but am not staying focused very well lately, have a ton of projects started and keep finding more to start, thus there are alot to complete. Made a list yesterday and hopefully this will help.

GC#70 challenge is to use punches, this is my finished card. The hydrangeas where made by using a piece of white cardstock 1" wide, then folded in half, you then punch out a heart to make the flowers. I then used a sponge and yellow ink to do the center of the flower, and pink ink to sponge the outside of the flower. It takes 2 hearts for each flower, the leaves are also a heart punch, a halft pearl was added to the center to complete the flower. The base of the card is pink card stock, then an embossing folder was used for the white mat. The oval and rectangle are from Spellbinders. The watercan is a stamp from a set that I purchased at Michaels.

This was such a simple technique that I was able to teach my niece how to do it, and also owed my Aunt. My Aunt is just getting into papercrafting and this was something that she would see the result immediately. She does wonderful dried flowers and gave me some that I will be using on my cards.

Am trying to get a few things together for a Boutique with my Aunt around the first of November, really have my work cut out, but am looking forward to giving it a try, will be able to spend some quality time with her, so it will be worth the time.

Thanks for stopping by, would love to hear your comments. Have a wonderful day.
