DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #307: Punches are a Stampers Best Friend!
December 12, 2018
It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge.
That's right, punches ARE a stampers best friend. Why...because with a quick stamp and punch, you've got an easy-to-make embellishment for your cards.
Stampin' Up! has a large offering of punches. I chose the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, and the coordinating Making Christmas Bright stamp set (bundle % save 10%). It was an easy choice, as it was another card I offered at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class. The ladies found it a little fussy at first, but when their card all came together, I heard a lot of, "oh, that was worth it"!
How'd She DO That? Christmas Bulb card:
- Stamps: Making Christmas Bright
- Paper Parade (11" x 4-1/4" card base)
- Color (2 of 4" x 5-1/4", scraps for punching)
- Galvanized Metallic Paper (scraps for punching)
- Ink: Poppy Parade, Lemon Lime Twist, Coral Calypso, Call Me Clover, Granite Gray
- Other: Stamparatus, Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, All is Bright Paper Clips, Silver Bakers Twine, Clear Wink of Stella, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals
- Shopping Links: See below for a full supply list with links to shop online
- For the best stamping impression...be sure to clean the "bulb" stamps before stamping. This will remove any manufacturing film.
- Use the Stamparatus to stamp the greeting and string of lights - makes for quick and perfect stamping alignment!
- Though you can't see it in the photo, Wink of Stella was added to the word "shine".
