Happy Friday! As April is quickly coming to an end I hope you've gotten a chance to play along in a few of our challenges at the Kreaxions Just Imagine blog. I recently got to play around with the circle templates to create the window effect which is another big way that Kreaxions punches stand out to me. No where if my collection of die cuts can any device create this unique window element. I think this element is especially great for stampers because it really adds a lot of interest yet can become a rather neutral background that shows off the stamps. One my card I feel the stamped sentiment becomes the focus due to the beautiful frame. So all you stamp lovers out there I urge you consider getting the circle templates and positioning pieces to add to your Kreaxions punches to really high light your beautiful stamping designs. Also Punch 913 used in the card is a great all purpose stamp for this technique.

I love working with products that are meant to be worked with together. Some may say its less creative, but for me this hobby is about having fun with great product and if I don't win any 'most unqiue' contests I'm ok. The Kreaxions products are all designed to work together and that makes creating a fun card element so easy to do. I simply cut two circles of the same size with the cutter. I use the star template and Punch 913 to create the fun bold red accent and it will layer onto the other one seamlessly. No guess work or recutting involved.
So based on my card today I am issuing a challenge on the Kreaxions blog. Create a project using only the papers from one coordinating collection. You can use InLinkz on the blog to post your creation and be eligible for the April prize. You get one chance at the prize for using any punch and two chances for using any Kreaxions punch!
