Another Submission for Cuttlebug Challenges

Be Inspired #23: Using Punches in unusual ways! for Cuttlebug Challenges

So, I couldn't resist doing another card for this challenge. This time I went with the "hour glass" shape that I referred to in the first card I posted for this challenge. I created the hour glass by using the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch---punching it just once on each side of the 3/ inch piece of cs (lining up the image making sure to punch a mirror image). Then I cut the "tips" off (see above pictures). I did this 3 times, on white and gold cs and acetate. On the white and acetate layers I also trimed off the "frame"part of the hour glass. I glued micro beads onto the acetate layer to simulate sand; taped this on the white layer and then that onto the gold layer. The background paper was done with alcohol ink (Currant and Gold mixative colors) on glossy paper. I used the script embossing folder on this sheet and the Martha Stewart Eyelet border stamp on the bottom. Stamped and gold embossed heart w/wings image on black cs and cut out. I cut wings off of heart and attached to hour glass. Pop-dotted the heart and added to card. The large clock stamp is by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous; small watch stamp by See Dee; Heart with wings stamp is by Studio G; "Time Flies" stamp by SandyLions. Used Paper Shapers scalloped photo corner punch on gold cs and used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on them.
