Triple Action Punch Power

Perfectly Plaid Stampin' Up!Hello Friends,

Today's 6 Handmade Cards demonstrate Triple Action Punch Power.  I am a big proponent of Punches especially when they coordinate with a cute stamp set.  You get a lot of bang for your buck plus they are easy to use.  Let's see what we can do with the Pine Tree Punch and the Moose punch.


Merry Moose Stampin' Up!

The coordinating stamp sets and the Merry Moose stamps and the Perfectly Plaid stamps. Let's explore further how to make these 6 six cards quickly and economically.


Perfectly Plaid Merry Moose Stampin' Up!

This pair of Merry Moose and Perfectly Plaid cards start with negatives made by simply punching through a plain sheet of Whisper White Card Stock cut 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  Both the Moose Punch and the Pine Tree Punch make beautiful negatives.  Next, I stamped a sentiment from their matching stamp sets, Merry Moose or Perfectly Plaid.  To keep things uncomplicated I used Cherry Cobbler Ink for all 6 cards.  Cherry Cobbler compliments the Plaid Tidings Designer Paper quite nicely!  I backed the whole thing with a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Plaid Tiding Paper.

After completing my first two cards, I noticed a slice of plaid paper leftover from each card, and low and behold I could quite easily punch several more moose or trees from those scraps.  Viola!  I am on my way to making 2 more gorgeous cards!  Mirroring the first two cards I made two more cards using the moose and the tree punched from the scraps. On the first two cards I popped up the white panels, but on these two cards I popped up the moose and tree using dimensionals.  You may have noticed that I also moved the sentiments to below rather than above.  Yay, I had 4 simple yet elegant cards completed in record time!

Fabulous!  Now let's talk about the last two cards.  It's fun to challenge myself to use up the scraps from previous cards.  In this case, I used the white punched shapes leftover from the first two cards and the strips of white card stock leftover from cutting the panels from the first four cards.  Boom!  This is coming together nicely.  To stretch my designer paper, I cut my Perfectly Plaid panels 3" x 4-1/4".  Since the paper is 6" x 6" I was able to make two cards from each sheet.

Sneak Peek New 2021 Stampin' Up! Catalogs

Dragonfly Garden Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Wow, that felt amazing to type 2021 in today's title.  How would you like a Sneak Peek from the newest Stampin' Up! Catalog that is set to launch in January 2021?  We made these 3 cards with the Dragonfly Garden stamps at our Virtual Stampin' Up! OnStage in November.  Stampin' Up! events and Sneak Peeks are just two of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  

Did I mention that you will be able to purchase the Dragon Garden stamps as a bundle with a dragonfly punch when the catalog launches in January 2021?  If you looked closely you may have noticed that the big dragonfly was punched from the new Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper.  Yay!


Dragonfly Garden Stampin' Up!

In fact, all 3 cards feature little pieces of the Dandy Garden paper.  On this card, the dragonfly has been stamped with Bumblebee ink and then punched with the Dragonfly punch.


Dragonfly Garden Stampin' Up!

In addition to punching big dragonflies, you will also be able to punch bitty dragonflies with the Dragonfly punch.  My favorite stamp from this new stamp set is probably the wildflower garden stamp pictured on this card. Beautiful!

Freezin' Fun Slimline Card

Freezin' Fun Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Yesterday, we woke up to a winter wonderland here in Ohio which put me in a playful mood which made me think of the delightful Freezin' Fun stamps and their coordinating dies.  This stamp set is packed with so much fun!  I love it!  I decided to make a Slimline Card so I could load on even more whimsical images.

Oh, how I love the first real snow of the year!  This is the view from my back porch.  Now, let's get back to my Freezin' Fun Slimline Card.


Freezin' Fun Stampin' Up!

It's getting to be that time of year where I make it a challenge to use up bits and pieces of my winter designer paper.  The sleds and skis brought to mind the Trimming the Town Designer Paper.  I snipped off a few mountains to lay the backdrop for my card, then I went back and trimmed around a little house thinking that it might be fun to add to my card later.

How To Make Freezin' Fun Slimline Card

To make the snowy slopes, I used the curvy stitched die from the Freezin' Friends dies.  I should mention that my card base for my Slimline Card is 8-1/2" by 7-1/2" scored at 3-3/4" to make a card that is 8-1/2" tall and 3-3/4" wide.  

The rest of my card was fun and games, stamping and coloring.  Fun! Fun! Fun!  What's not to love about the poofy snow-covered trees and the perky little animals out for a romp in the snow?
