Splitcoast's Technique Lover's Challenge #314

Hello everyone...it's time for another TLC challenge on Splitcoast!! My challenge to you is to make tickets!! No store bought tickets allowed....you can use dies, punches, stamps, what ever you want to create some fun tickets!!! I paper pieced the adorable little dog from Paper Smooches Birthday buddies set and colored a bit of shading with a copic. The tickets were used for the sentiment and the button with twine finishes it off.
Supplies includes: Stamps, cardstock, punches, and a marker.


Punch the corners of a 2 1/8" x 1 1/8" piece of cardstock using a ticket corner punch.


If you don't have the ticket corner punch, you can use a round punch...


Insert the corner of the cardstock in partially....just make sure you insert the paper at the same spot on all 4 sides so all the corners will be even.


You can even use a larger circle punch...the curves won't be as deep but that's ok...use what you have!!!


Now, you can decorate the tickets. I doodles a line around the edges with a marker and sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip.


Recipe:

Stamps: Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies

Paper: White, Kraft, Basic Grey Max and Whiskers dp

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Copics, Button, Baker's Twine, Sewing Machine, Ticket Punches, Nestabilities


I hope you will join us for today's TLC challenge and have a great day!!!!

Hi Joan, This card is sooo cute! Love the doggie, the doily and your tickets! I bought a bunch of dog stamps from a store in Va. that was going out of the crafting business. I want to use them soon. I have a million ideas for cards, and no time! When I visit wonderful sites like yours it refreshes them in my mind. Thanks for sharing your talent!

I must have missed this card somehow! Love the whole design, and your tickets look excellent. have tried to make tickets before but never made anything worth using, I might try your tutorial though, looks much better than my cutting out by hand. CoB
