I really love my punches! And this card features 2 of my favorites: Pansy Punch & the new Decorative Label Punch! Actually, 3 PUNCHES! There’s also the Classic Label Punch!
I just love the way it turned out!! It started with the technique I showed you a few days ago called Ink, Spray, & Smash. That’s how I made that pretty background using ink drops on Glossy paper.
Sometimes when you make a mistake, or, in my case, can’t find something in this mess of a stamp room, you’re forced to be creative & the project turns out even better! I wanted to use the Pansy Punch because all I’ve been seeing is daisies! But my set, Flower Shop, is no where to be found! So I used the bunch of flowers from Window Box & punched it out with my Pansy Punch.
Today we have a fun challenge for you to try… Masking or Stenciling!
I made a stencil by cutting out a tree using Perfect Pines Framelits Dies. Using sponge daubers, I sponged the tree with Old Olive & Pear Pizzazz. Decided it needed more color, so I reached for Rose Red. That’s one of those colors I forget about…but I just love it!
Isn’t that fun?!! I sponged the tree on This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The star is punched from Blossom Punch. I thought it would be cute with a bird, because of the music notes!
The bird was part of the Tree Builder Punch.
Which one do you like best? The star or the bird?
I’m soooooo behind! Ha! I’m afraid my friends are getting New Year’s Cards this year. But it’s all good. I’m just stretching out the fun.
It was fun to take a break this morning & make this card. I can’t wait to see what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team has made for this challenge! CLICK HERE to see more ideas!
You’re in for a treat today! The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Members are focusing on their favorite bundles from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.
The first thing I knew I was ordering was the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Bundle! This set comes with Santa, a bear, an Eskimo, Gingerbread Man & a Reindeer…and all can be punched out with one punch! Love it!!

After seeing how cute this came out, I decided to decorate a box to go along with it. To be filled with goodies! I found these White Gift Boxes (3 X 3 X 3) in the Holiday Catalog that are sturdy & food safe & they have an acetate sleeve that slides on! That is so cool because you can make these ahead of time & fill them later on when you’re done baking.

It’s my kid’s fault!! I’ve gotten caught up in the latest craze…Pokemon Go!
Last week my 2 daughters & I were in Charleston, SC, making wedding plans for my daughter, Jenny, who will be getting married there in 3 months! None of us had ever been there and there are so many details to planning a wedding! We had a lot of fun, but it was very stressful!
So…to de-stress, we’d walk over to the park across from our hotel & try to catch ’em all!! The park was LOADED with Pokemon! And also loaded with a crowd of people staring at their phones walking around.
So when I decided to make a Punch Art Card for the Stylin’ Stampin’INKspiration Team, I knew just what I wanted to make!
This little guy is called Octillery. To make him, I used my Owl Punch & cut out a few shapes from Flower Fair Framelits. Then I stuck on some shiny Enamel Shapes. In the background you’ll see By the Shore DSP embossed with little white bubbles.
Here’s a picture of the inside:
