Paper Piercing With Reason to Smile Stamp Set

 Yesterday, I told you about a new stamp set that will be offered in July 2012 ONLY thru a special promotion by Stampin' Up! called Reason to Smile.   You can read more about it HERE.   The card above uses two of the stamps in this new set (flower with stem shadow, and flower with stem outline).   It uses a two-step stamping technique where you stamp the shadow first in a lighter color, then stamp the outline in a darker color.   I have a two-step technique tutorial HERE.   I thought the little frog springing up added a touch of whimsy to the card.

All of the photos can be made larger by clicking on them.  If you click on this photo, you will see the paper piercing that was done around the white design. 

 This is one of the three sheets in the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack sold by Stampin' Up!  It has 3 unique templates that are each 6" x 6".  The sheets/designs coordinate with punches on Pg 182-185, Edgelits  on Pg 190, and Framelits on Pg 191 of the main catalog.

I lined up the outline of the white cutout with the paper-piercing sheet and then using the paper-piercing tool pierced the dots around the inside edge of the red card stock.
