Layered Card made with a Border Punch


Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for this month. Thank you again Sheila :) I saw this pretty layered card made with borders on Paper Trey Ink's site made by Dawn McVey and I thought I would give it a try. I don't have border dies but I thought a border punch would work. My card is made with the doily border punch from Martha Stewart. I used orange and black card stock from Stampin' Up and some Halloween card stock from a photo mat stack from Cloud 9 Design. The stamped images are from My Creative Times stamp set called Fright Night.

My base is orange and I layered the borders by only using my tape runner on the top so that I could fluff up the layers when the card was complete.

Once I was done, I turned it over and cut off the excess. I then adhered it to my card, which is black.
Then did the stamping.

I think it came out so cute. I love trying new things and I am so glad there are such talented people out there that I can learn from and try out their creations and make them my own.

I am also going to post my card on the Paper Trey Ink's site.

Thanks for stopping by and Sheila Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be on your Design Team.

Have a great weekend everyone. :)

A Card and a Box

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share a card and a box I made for a friend's birthday. Thank you Pam for having me. I hope you are feeling lots better. Well, I must say it has been a very hot and busy summer, but boy did it fly by. Even though it is September, we are still getting warm temperatures and that's fine with me because I'm really not ready to be cold yet. Maybe just a little cool :)

For the card I used the new die set from Emma (My Creative Time) called Stitched Party Dies. The balloons and the banner are so cute. For the little box, which I will be putting a gift card inside, it fit's perfectly, I used the little stamp set Birthday Buddies, also from Emma.

For the box you start off with a piece of card stock that measures 5 1/2" x 8". You score one side at 1,
3 1/2, 4 1/2 and 7, you turn it and score at 1 and 4 1/2. You fold all the score lines, then cut each side only up to the score lines. You put adhesive on each of those tabs and fold the box up. You can find a video at with Angie. She makes the cutest bags and boxes. It's sometimes hard to show in pictures, that's why it's nice to watch a video. I'm sorry that I didn't show more pictures, I just didn't have the time, but I will get better :)

Well, that's my project for this month. Thanks for stopping by. See you soon. Have a wonderful weekend.
