Spot-Lighting w/ a Punch..

I love this technique.. out of every technique I've learned and have seen this is my favorite when it comes to detailed images and those ones you just don't know what to do with.

This is going to be Monday Stamps since I didn't get it done in time for Sunday.. We were on the letter "N" and you could use a set that began with the letter "N" or use something new.. I went with something new, way back in August I saw this set in a store and didn't get it... While my mom was here we went back and there it was all alone looking at me.

But, there's a catch it's one of those "What do I do, with it now, that I have it" stamps.. I'm very proud that I broke it out and used it before a few years had passed like some other stamps I won't

I stamped the image in Black StazOn and adhered it to my card base.. I used the new Scallop Trimmed Border along the bottom of it. I had a pice of Pattern Paper (Non SU) and cut some strips of the design and added those. I stamped "Happy Halloween" in Black on Pumpkin Pie and punched it out with the Word Window punch and then I added a black brad to it.

Spot-Lighting with a punch is really easy you stamp the image a second time and then punch out the area you want to focus on and then you color in just that portion and then re-adhere it over the original image.

For this week we are on the letter "O" so you want to break out those sets that began with "O" or make something that is Orange or something with Ovals...Should be pretty easy.. Post a link to your card in the comment section below..

My blog has reached 10,000 + Blog hits since it's make over so I will be posting Blog Candy on Wednesday.. So make sure you check back for that.. I need to get everything photographed!
