I love Stampin’ Up’s! punches! They are on a shelf on the left hand side of my stamp desk and I am always reaching for a the perfect punch for almost every single card! Sometimes I like to pop the greeting up on a punched piece of cardstock (with Stampin’ Dimensionals of course) and other times I like to create a fabulous focal point on my card with my punches!
This beautiful bouquet of tulips was created with the Owl Builder Punch! I punched out the owl body and snipped the two little feet off! To add to the color variation and dimension of the tulips, I used a sponge dauber to add a little color to the edges!!! I love using the Owl Punch and about 80% (or more) of the time is isn’t for an actual Owl. How fun is that?
So this card is SUPER CUTE and my current favorite card! Super fun to make and can’t wait to send it to my nephew for his Birthday next month! Eeeee So excited!!!! The lion was created with the Blossom Flower Punch. I layered two of the flowers (off-set) for the face and then used two petals from another Blossom Flower for the feet. I used a 1-3/8″ Circle Punch and the 3/4″ Circle Punch for the face! Guess where the little heart nose came from…..that’s right – the Owl Builder Punch! I’m telling you that one is a must-have!!!
This Hexagon Punch is a new one! It just came out in June with the New Catalog! I really loved how this card turned out. I have done a couple variations of this card by putting more space between the punched hexagons and by rotating the hexagons the other way too! Super fun and endless possibilities with all of the Designer Series Paper options styles!
I hope these cards have given you inspiration to try out your punches in more ways than just the actual punched image! Have fun!!!
