Paper Piercing is so much FUN!

I have really enjoyed using my new paper piercing tool that I purchased from TAC. It is a very inexpensive tool and it can add SO much to your project! If you pair this up with stamp sets in the catalog that have lots of dots, like the "Swirly Seasons" set, you have a match made in heaven!

Take this pumpkin card for example:

See all of those dots on the pumpkin? That is part of the stamp and I took my paper piercer and punched a hole everywhere there was a dot. This added visual interest to the card and even adds a little depth. It is much like the old "connecting the dots" game. Very simple to do too!

Here's another one using the same stamp set and the same technique.

What does the paper piercer look like? Here you go, just a simple tool! (And it's only $2.95!!)

And, just in case you were wondering what the stamp set that I used looked like, here's a picture of that too! It's only $19.95 for 12 stamps!

I love this set because there is an image for almost every holiday you can think of! Need a card for a teacher? Use the apple image! Need a Christmas card? Use the holly or the snowflake. Valentine's Day? No problem! Use the heart! What about a general event? Use the flourishes or the dragonfly! You can get a lot of use out of the images in this set!

I dare you to try it!!!
