House of Cards Time!

Hello Everybody!

Now that Halloween-time is going to fly by and it will be Christmas time.  I tried not to say it-but it's so true!

But on a fun note, since it is now November 1st, it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards!  This month the challenge is to use the stamped punch window technique.  You can go here to see Mynn's video for it.

Here is my stamped punch window:

Here is my whole card.  So I cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than the base of my card and used distress inks to color it.  Then I stamped the wings.  On a separate piece of white card stock I stamped the pocketwatch (by Hot off the Press).  I used walnut stain distress ink on it and a twisted citron under the loop at the top.  I used my hole punch to punch the face off.

I used my Krylon gold pen to line the outer and inner rectangles of the card.  Then I adhered the top panel with pop dots.  After that I put the face of the clock back in and added the sentiment.  They sentiment is from Dylusions.

This is a cool technique.  Make sure you stop by the House of Cards to see everyone's take on this fun technique.  Until next time my friends...Time to go! (and squander my extra hour) ;)
