Piercing Paper - simple and fun!

I bought some plastic canvas last week-end as a guide for paper piercing. Great simple tool that gives you tons of design possibilities. Then, I was out blog-hopping and checked Heather's blog and she had a card fabulously designed with paper-piercing using plastic canvas. How's that for the same thought process in the same week. What a hoot! I love what she did with her card.

Here are some of my attempts with a 29 cent round plastic canvas template as the guide:
All three cards feature the Spring Dream stamp set and prismacolor pencils. On the navy card, the paper piercing is highlighted with a white gel x-treme pen.

The mini round tab punch and the glitter gel pens are fun additions to the mint and raspberry card and besides the glitter gels, a little "bling" finishes it off.

And, on the third card, a button and a ribbon accent finish off the look.

Hope you get the chance to pierce some paper soon!

On a separate note, Diana has some blog candy so check her site out. She's a great TAC angel and SBS4 blog sister. Oh, and don't forget to comment on my blog candy post below this one. Happy stamping!
