Musing with Color Throwdown!

A quick card with a FUN technique

For this card I actually took a mini punch and
used it round the inside of the circle.
I have no idea how it worked.
I die cut the circle first, then
I just would punch, then I moved the punch where the
outside of the punch covered half of the punched out heart
so I could gauge to punch the same place.
I rounded the entire circle thart way.
I thought it would mess up actually... But it surprisingly
punch really close ..Wow... Happy Accidents.

---EDIT TO ADD how I did this below!!!

I just love Vicki's Bold card!!!




Supplies:
Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles
Hero Arts Sending Love
Recollections Mini Heart Punch
MFT Stictched Circles Die
Neat and Tangled, & Misc Sequins.
Memento Tuxedo Black







Now it is your turn to get crafty!!!............

Thanks for coming by my blog!

Create, Enjoy
Live, Laugh
and 
LOVE!
------------------------

I used the 2.25' Circle from the MFT stitched set
hen I used a Michael's $1 bin mini heart punch.  
I punched the fist punch and then positioned the very outer edge so it covered half of the recently punched heart, 
I made sure I kept the punch pushed up against the opening and kept going all around this way. 
You will have an evenly spaced heart ring. 

Enjoy your crafty Day!

This is fabulous! I thought you had used a die for the centre, such a brilliant idea to use a punch (I would have totally messed that up!).

Giiiirrrrll - how you got all those hearts to line up so perfectly is beyond me! If I tried this it would have looked a hot mess. Somehow you always manage to be in my top 3 each week over at Muse. You've got talent in those crafty fingers!

Fabulous! How did you know it was going to end up evenly like that? I know that if I tried this, it would be so lopsided! Well done, Kimberly!
