Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is for a basic technique: Paper Piercing. I know it’s not a fancy technique tutorial, but we didn’t have a tutorial for that technique yet. I love to use paper piercing to add an extra border to my images when it just needs a little something something.
For my sample I an image from Gina K. Designs Winter Wonderland stamp set. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (C00, C1, BV20, BV21, R01, R02, R08, R29, G21, G24, G28). It was cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities, overstamped with the background script from the same set in Antique Linen Distress Ink and sponged with the same color.
The image was layered on piece of Basic Grey cardstock, cut and embossed with Lacey Circle Nestabilities. The edge of the circle was paper pierced.
For my card layout I used CPS Sketch 199. The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Basic Grey cardstock folded in half. The edges of the card front were sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. All four corners were rounded with the W R Memory Keepers Cropadile Corner Chomper and the edges were paper pierced.
The edges of a 4 3/4″ square of Cosmo Cricket 1934 Paper (I LOVE that paper pack and need to order more) were rounded and the square was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of White cardstock. Both layers were adhered to the card base.
Melissa Frances lace from the beige ribbon pack was adhered under a white cardstock strip and adhered to the right center of the layeres. The image circle was adhered over the strip with dimensionals.
The sentiment is also from Winter Wonderland Stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The sentiment was cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker BV20. Snow Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card.
