Stampin'Up! Ornament Punch

Here is a great alternative use for your ornament punch. Cut the bottom off (or punch on the edge of the paper) and make a vase! I first stamped the stems overlapping just enough to make them fit in the vase opening. You can cover a world of mistakes with the paper vase, so don't worry too much is yours are not perfect. The colors on this one are very pleasing. Sahara Sand card base and Soft Suede for the layering- and ribbon.

I have a stamping workshop next week. Please let me know if you want to attend.

Extra Large Two Step Bird

I love this bird punch! This card is fun to make using scraps of paper then modified any way. I added circle punches, dry embossing, and clear embossing. You could also use rub ons, stamped images, textures paper...The sky is the limit!

We made a form of this card at the last workshop. I just changed it around a little to see what would happen! The Sending Love Specialty paper is from Stampin'Up!'s occasions mini catalog. I love the sparkles in the paper- very subtle. The rest of the card is just punches and a greeting that can be anything- this one is a great Valentine if you need.

The flower is made by cutting a circle, folding the pieces and layering together. Finish with a brad- it looks great!Look for more cards to comes soon.
