Your Creative Connection: Pleased as Punch

Today I'm excited to announce the launch of "Your Creative Connection"; a bi-monthly creative showcase which will come to you on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.

Your Creative Connection - a bi-monthly tour showcasing Stampin' Up! product

Your Creative Connection came together from a group of eight global friends wanting to give you a worldwide connection to creativity.  We hope to inspire you to connect with us and others as we share papercrafting ideas using Stampin' Up! products.  Each showcase will have a theme, and we will "travel" around the world to connect with our creative friends.

Today's theme:  Pleased as Punch

I couldn't decide which color version I liked best, so they made one of each.

Sale-A-Bration Small Bloom Punch coordinates with Please as a Punch Designer Series Paper #dostamping #stampinup #coordinationproduct

DOstamping Tip:

  • Use the Small Bloom Punch (FREE during Sale-a-Bration with $100 order) to cut out flowers from the DSP sheet.   
  • I recommend punching the closest ones the punch can reach, then use a scissors to trim off excess paper to reach more flowers.

DOstamping Tip:

  • Use Detailed Trio punch to corner round the 1-1/4" x 3-1/2" white piece.
  • Stamp the stem in roughly the center.  Then stamp leaves.  Both from Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order)

Fun with Stampin' Up!'s Vase Builder Punch #dostamping #stampinup

DOstamping Tip:

  • To create the vase, I gave everyone a 2" x 3-1/4" piece of Pear Pizzazz (enough for 2-vases).
  • Stamp the border image three times (also from Thoughtful Blooms).  Then use the Vases Builder punch to cut out the vase.

If you like punches, you'll enjoy creating with the Please as Punch Designer Series Paper and it's coordinating Punches.  It's available for a limited time and only while supplies last.  You'll want to add it to your shopping bag today!
