Thursday Tip: Punching with Post-its

Thursday Tips, where I share ideas to make stamping easier

You've embossed. You've colored. You get ready to punch and ARGHHHH!!!! Your card stock doesn't reach far enough!!!! What do you do????

Just grab a post-it note and stick your card stock to the sticky end.

Your post-it note becomes the handle to manuever the card stock into position.

Stamping Crisis averted!! :)

Here's a quick card that I made with my punched butterfly. All the images were embossed in black embossing powder. The butterfly was colored with markers and adhered with Dimensionals. The Dahlia was sponged in real red ink and then additional highlights were added with a real red marker. Enjoy!!
