Welcome April Featured Artist ~ Erna Logtenberg!

Hello Friends! 

It is my great pleasure to announce our featured artist for the month of April and my friend, Erna Logtenberg!   You may find Erna's cards here on stamping 411, because she is a frequent player with our challenges and an amazingly talented stamper/artist!  We are SO VERY excited about having her on our team for the month of April starting with tonight's post! 

Erna lives in the Netherlands and has a very big heart!  Erna has driven hours to hang out with my friend who's hubby is stationed there and who desperately needs friends who craft! 

We are very lucky to have her on the team this month.  To kick off the festivities, Erna wrote this AWESOME tutorial on how to create a border, with the bitty border punch!  Totally Fabulous! 

Thanks for joining us!!  We are so lucky to have you!

Create your own Itty Bitty Border
Today we are going to make our own Itty Bitty Border with one of the punches from Itty Bitty Border Shapes Punch Pack. First of all, you take a piece of paper. I made a 4 ¼” square card, so my paper was a little bit wider than 4 ¼“ and you use this little punch.

You put the paper in the punch until it stops completely and till the edge of the paper

Then punch one time. For the next punch you slide the punch, until you see the previous circle on one side or the other of the punch like shown here:

Then you punch and go on like this, slide the punch until you see the next circle and punch!

Go on till the whole paper is done:
Now you have two pieces of papers, with a new border look!

 Stick this on your cardbase paper the way you want:

Cut the extra paper on the back off

Finish your card:

And my whole card:

Woohoo!  So that's the big announcement!  We will see more from Erna tonight at 6pm EST when this week's sketch challenge goes live!  :)  Welcome Erna!
