I was having some fun this past weekend creating some samples using my Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack. I'm sure many of you have this tool and probably it comes out every time you need to poke a hole in something to insert a brad. This versatile little tool can do so much more!
In the first card I made, I used the paper piercing tool to poke a hole in the center of each scallop. This is a fun technique to do when mounting a white or vanilla piece on top of colored card stock. You can't see it too well here, but the Pacific Point color peeks through the little holes, creating a fun look.
On the Melon Mambo card, I used the hole template that comes with the mat pack and punched holes all the way around the edges of my Pink Pirouette card stock. Then I used the fine tip of my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker and played "connect the dots". The result is a faux stitched line that looks like it was sewn. In the center of the flower are the little pieces that come out of the Blossom Bouquet Punch on the third setting. I used some glue from the Two Way Glue pen in the center and then just used the tip of the paper piercing tool to pick up the tiny punched pieces and place them in the center. Try it…they really do stay on the tip of the piercing tool until you get perfect placement.
