Lots of Paper Piercing !!!

Good Morning and today I'm sharing with you a blast from the past.

I was just commenting on Mrs.As blog and was reminded of  some cards I made ten or more years ago. Hence, a very wonky and fuzzy photo.

I bet some of you will remember when Petra, a lady from Holland was on Create and Craft regularly with all sorts of kits, stamps and especially brass stencils for doing all sorts of things.

Well I bought a kit of these pricking cards and really enjoyed making them at the time.

A sentiment was added later.  What a shame I didn't put a butterfly on this one!

Did anyone else buy these?  I'm off to watch Chocolate Baroque on Hochanda now.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Hey Barb, this is wow, lovely, love that gorgeous paper piercing... Have you still got the card? Why not add a butterfly if you have, it's stunning. Am wondering how long it took you to do all of that pricking at the time. Thanks for your sweet comment too...hugs..xxx

  2. Love the border you made; looks so simple, but takes a lot of work... Hope you enjoyed the program!

  7. I remember it well!! and yea they are still siting there...the stencils that is...perhaps they will see a resurgence...but only if I get rid of them perhaps...lol...SO I will hang on to them and all my other stuff that may be useful. I,ve watched chocolate Baroque today too...OH MY! what beautiful, really beautiful stamps...I wanted them all but sat on my hands and reminded myself about all the lovely NBUS...stamps that are in my room...smug grin....but fabulous shows with Lesley...one talented lady and some good tips. So back to your card Barb lovely and yes now you would titivate differently...progerss!!(smilng here )..after all we are still pricking the edges of cards so who's to say we shouldn't do it all again!! xx

  15. I still have several of the stencils Barb, I did make a few cards but it was very time consuming and I'm not very patient ! Missed Chocolate Baroque today as I was off to Embsay crafts to buy some card stock and tape and yes several more stamps LOL

  21. yes - I remember these - I too bought a kit of four cards to make, and the pricker I bought at the same time is one of my most used tools, even today!! I also have a 'stencil' type of guide to make some more cards....

  22. Hi Barb,
    oh what beautiful paper piercing.
    The design is awesome, and must have taken ages.
    Love it and thank you for reminding me that I have some of Petra's items to use.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  23. Hi Barb, beautifully designed card, never tried anything like this and never saw these kits, probably before I got the bug.
    I feasted on the CB shows as I love the stamps, but didn't buy from Hochanda, some stamps I had, but I did check out the prices, and if bought through CB shop would have been less expensive, sometime I think these channels are just rip off merchants, and that really annoys me, have a lovely day Kate x

  24. What patience you must have - but the result of your work is stunning. I must drag myself away from the paint pots and try some of your techniques - oh, for a few more hours in the day! Anne x

  32. I DO remember when paper piercing was the "rage", I gave it a few tries, but it really never turned out as beautiful as you card.

  33. You have a lot more patience than me - it looks spectacular though.

  34. Love the piercing--beautiful card, Barb!

  35. I have several piercing templates! Oddly enough I was just thinking about them the other day and how I should pull one out to play with. Your card is gorgeous and reinforces my thought to get the templates out.

  37. Now that's paper piercing! Wow! This is not my favourite technique as I find it a bit tedius but you have used a gorgeous template here and the outcome is fabulous! Maybe all I need is a better template!
