Punch Art


My inspiration was given to me by Patti Lee.  Pattie these are just darling I had to do them. 

These little guys are made with the New Petal Punch from Stampin' Up!.  I also used the Word Window, 1/2" circle and the Small Oval Punches.  For the Mummy I sponged the edges with Soft Suede Ink.  I just Love these guys!  You want to do them now too, don't you???

A Little Birdie Told Me


This was a card for a swap that I was in.  Can you believe that this was the 1st time that I used my Two Step X-Lrg Bird Punch.  It is a GREAT punch!  I really have to use this one more.

The stamp set that I used was a Hostess set called "Punch Potpourri".  This set is a great set to have.  Each stamp in this set has a punch that will punch out the stamped images.  How great is that!  You too can have this set for FREE!  And you can do this having FUN!  Contact me know and we can get you started.

These cards are GREAT!

Here are a few more cards from the swap that I did with my Technique Thursday Club.  These cards were done by Barb and Kris.  In our swap with my club members they don't have to use all current Stampin' Up! products.  They can use non Stampin' Up! products.  I know, shame on me.  LOL  Some members are just starting out in stamping so I let it slide.  But they are all very creative!

Thumping Technique


This technique is called "Thumping".  I would like to thank Gayle, Laurie & Pixie for the inspiration for this card.  These are some of the GREAT ladies that are also Stampin' Up! demonstrators in my group.

I did this technique with my Technique Thursday club.  How the technique is done, you take your stamp and ink up the image.  Then you take a Stampin' Up! marker and thump (or dot) on the inked up image.  You can use as many colors as you would like.  In this card I just used one color to thump with.  This is such an easy technique, but so elegant.  

I used Marina Mist, Elegant Eggplant & Whisper White cardstock.  The stamp set that I used was called "Because I Care".  This is a Level 1Hostess set.  Would you like to have this set for your own?  I can help you achieve that!  It is easy and fun to get it!  Just let me know when you are ready to get going to get your own set.  

Thank you for stopping.
