Ideas using punches

Today I thought I’d share a few cards featuring pieces made with punches. It’s pretty amazing to me the designs that can be made from combining a few pieces of punched out paper.

  
How cute is that lion?! Look closely and you’ll see that his face is simply a scallop circle punch for the mane, and various sizes of circles make up the rest of him.

  
Again, some adorable designs- the strawberries are heart & flower punch pieces layered together.

If you’re more of a scrapbooker than a card maker, these ideas easily work for page embellishments too.

When you’re working with craft punches, it’s important to use a high quality punch. I’ve tried cheaper brands in the past and was very disappointed at the ragged edges I’d get, or how difficult it was to operate the punch. The line of Stampin’ Up! punches are the highest quality. I have a client with arthritis in her hands who has said SU punches are the only ones she can use. Our punches allow you to punch precisely and crisply exactly where you want on your paper, something extremely important when working with patterned papers.

The large word greetings featured on these cards are from the Watercolor Words stamp set in the new catalog.

I’ll be placing an order on September 29th, so please contact me if you’d like to purchase anything or with any questions or comments. Happy scrapin’!
