Laura’s Quick Tip: Punch It!!!

Did you know that the gray, nude, and white images in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog actually mean something??? The stamp images that have a nude looking outline behind them mean that there is a coordinating Punch that matches that image. If it is gray or white behind the image, there is a coordinating die cut. Super fabulous, right! Did you know that there are tons of images that can be punched or die cut even though they don’t have that little labeling?? That what today’s Laura’s Quick Tip is all about. There are so many images that you can punch!!!

Laura's Quick Tip,

Check out this super cute card that used lots of punches for various images! There are so many fun ways to use your punches for different images for a super cool look!

I started with a So Saffron card base. Next, I took a piece of Pool Party measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and ran it through the Mosaic Embossing Folder. Then I added it to the card front. For the decorations, I stamped the little flower in So Saffron and the mosaic flower in Terracotta Tile. Using the 1/2″ Circle Punch and 3/4″ Circle Punch, I punched them out and added them to the card. Some of them I used Stampin’ Dimensionals and others I glued on flat. This gives more texture and dimension to the card!

Layered Punches,

For the greeting, I stamped it in Pool Party. All of these images are from the Memorable Mosaic Stamp Set. Using the Timeless Label Punch, I punched it out of Whisper White. Then I layered a piece of Terracotta Tile that was punched out with the Everyday Label Punch. Those layer so well together! Using the Silver Metallic Thread to make some loops, I added those to the back of the greeting and added it to the card front. I finished it off with a Flower Faceted Gem!

Mosaic Card Insert,

For the inside of the card, I stamped a few of the same images on the corners to really pull it all together! It’s perfect! I hope you enjoyed this Laura’s Quick Tip and have fun with your punches! Remember you can punch it with any image!
