Stampin' Up punches
The other day we went to our new Hobby Lobby to check it out. Amazing is all I can say. There is just an abundance of different things to look at. I even found the spoons I've been looking for that are in the new Spring Catalog on page 28 on the Sunshine & Sprinkles page. Don't you just love that spoon? Anyways, I met a couple ladies looking at punches and I hear them talking about how hard some of them are to punch. Well, I began to talk about our punches and let them know our punches are not hard to punch. So, I came home and made this card for my swap for yesterday's make n take.
It is not hard at all. But to see it, it is beautiful. I used assorted circle punches (all different sizes) in the New Tea for Two DSP on pg 3 in the Spring Catalog- $10.95 #129311. I love this paper. This is how I made it.
1- Very Vanilla c/s 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 #101650 pg 156 idea book (fold in half)
1- Lucky Limeade c/s 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 #122926 pg 152 idea book
1- Very Vanilla c/s 4 x 5 1/4

1 3/8" circle punch #119860 $15.95
1 1/4" circle punch #119861 $15.95 (I cut assorted out 2 of each and added to them)
1" circle punch #119868 $12.95 (Remember to put you saying on so you have room at the bottom)
3/4" circle punch #119873 $12.95
Itty Bitty Banner Framelits #129267 $14.95 pg 191 idea book
Itty Bitty Banners stamp set #126255 (w) $15.95 #126257 (c) $11.95 pg 134 idea book
Square Lattice Embossing folder #119976 $7.95 pg 189 idea book
Dazzling Details pg 158 #124117 $2.50 (a little goes a long way)
Big Shot pg 186
Ribbon (I used retired Pretty in Pink to make the ribbon and bow)
snail adhesive pg 177
Cut your circles and and you saying. Tape them down onto the smaller Very Vanilla c/s and create a look you like-layering them on top of one another. Leave out 2 different sizes for later. After everything is taped down-run the whole piece of paper through your Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing folder. Add ribbon and tape off onto the back of the Very Vanilla cs. Tape the Very Vanilla c/s to the Lucky Limeade leave only a small edge of the Lucky Limeade to show. Then adhere to the to card front. Add you bow and then add the 2 last circles using dimensionals so they pop up. (be sure to run the circles thru the Big Shot using the embossing folder before putting them onto your card) Then apply you Dazzling Details and your card will POP.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Thanks for looking!!!!!
