Chic Challenges CC-05

Hi there Stampers! Welcome to my Chic Challenges card post for challenge CC-05. For this challenge card I decided to showcase a new stamp set from the BRAND NEW Catalog! I used Mosaic Madness and it's coordinating punch to create this card. Best of all, you can get both and save 15% by ordering the Mosaic Madness Bundle (see page 123 of the new catalog)  I also used the Express Yourself stamp set - this one is a special stamp set reserved for Hostesses. Just ask me about hosting and how you can get FREE stuff!

I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for about 7 months now and I am still building my collection of Stampin' Up! tools. Border punches are not at the top of my wish list so I get to be creative and come up with nice borders using whatever means I have available. This time around I chose the Mosaic Punch included in the bundle. What's really cool is it only takes 4 punches to stretch 4 inches to make that little border edge. It really sets off the stamping and background paper nicely, don't you think?  What tricks and tools, besides border punches, do you use to make creative borders?

Here is this week's sketch and a link to the Chic Challenge's page where you can post your card.  Go ahead, make one to share!

Hope you enjoyed this challenge card and I can't wait to see what you create! Happy Stamping.

Disclaimer:  I am a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I am working on replacing all my craft supplies with only Stampin' Up! product, but I will occasionally use some of my non-SU stash. Bare with me as I work to replenish my stash with only SU product. I will be highlighting new products as they come in and I will always point out great alternatives to my non-SU product that are Stampin' Up!. Thanks for understanding.

  1. Great card! It was very clever to use the new punch as a border.
