Punch Art

PIck a Pattern for Customer Thank You Cards

Here are a couple of my customer Thank You cards for June.  I chose to use the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper as I really like the colors in these papers.  I also used the Label Me Pretty stamp set and Pretty Label Punch. The stamp set and punch are also sold in a Bundle which saves you 10%!  Wondering what other products are available in bundles?  Wonder no more, you can download my FREE printable list - Download 2017_Catalog_Bundles

I started with some Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo card bases and cut the DSP into 4" x 5-1/4" pieces.  I wrapped each piece with a bit of Grosgrain ribbon and then added the greeting and stamped label.
Check out this cute card on my blog www.barbstamps.com that uses the Pick a Pattern DSP, Label Me PRetty Bundle and our striped grosgrain ribbonThe ribbon is our 3/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  It comes in all of our 2016-2018 In colors and I used the Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy on my cards. The greeting was stamped in Flirty Flamingo and cropped with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch.

Melon Mambo Z-fold Valentine Card

Wanted to make a cool Valentine for my husband and I really wanted to use Melon Mambo, not because it's his favorite color but because, I hadn't used it in a while and I love it!!!!

I decide to make him a Z-Fold Card because I'm pretty sure he will think it's really cool. :-)
Below is the card closed, I used a lot of fun products on this card, starting with the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape.  I added it in three places -
*To separate the punched hearts border from the focal point (I added the Washi Tape to a strip of Whisper White before I added it to the layer)
*On the right edge of the inside layer
*A different pattern on the right edge of the top layer
I also used the edgelit, the small envelope, the tiny envelope liner, the small note card in the envelope and the heart pattern that fits on the top of the note card.  all of these pieces can be found in the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

Sending_love_zfold

Here's a closeup of the heart border and the envelope.  The Confetti Hearts Border Punch was used on the left side of the top layer and I also used the punch on a scrap of Basic Black so I could inlay a few of the black hearts to really make the border pop.  I chose one of the patterns in the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper for the small envelope and die cut a tiny envelope liner from Whisper White to hide the reverse side of this paper as it didn't really fit my theme.
Sending_love_zfold_close
And here is the inside layer, I stamped images from the Sealed with Love stamp set in both Melon Mambo and Memento Tuxedo Black.
Sending_love_zfold_open
A Z-Fold Card is super easy, start with a 4-1/4 x 11 piece of card stock and score it at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2.  Fold the card in half and then fold it back on itself.  Add a layer that measures 3-1/2 x 5 and you are done. Decorate and embellish as desired.

Cozy Critters Gift Tags

CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some of these items are not only retiring but are on sale!)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)

Here are a couple of adorable gift tags that I created using the Cozy Critters Host set.  This set can be "purchased" with Host Rewards but hurry as it is on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List so it is only available through January 3rd.   You earn Host Rewards when you place an order or have a party with a merchandise total of $150 or more.

Cozy_critters_tags
I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on a 2" strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I trimmed it to length after I had done my stamping.  Then I added a 2-3/16" wide strip of Soft Suede (I cut it to length after I cut the tag) and then I added a 2-3/8" strip of the diagonal stripe Real Red Designer Series Paper.  This paper is from the Brights Stack.  The Designer Series Paper Stacks are a wonderful addition to your stash as polka dots and stripes are always in style. :-)

I stamped the owl and fox images on Crumb Cake cardstock, once in Real Red, cleaned the stamp and stamped it again in Soft Suede.  I fussy cut the red scarfs and glued them to the cirtters. 

The critters were cropped with the coordinating Fox Builder Punch and Owl Builder Punch .  The hat is cropped from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Real Red Cardstock using the Jolly Hat Builder Punch (which is 40% off right now!!)

World Traveling Party Pants

I used the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack along with the NEW Party Pants SAB item to create this card.

Party_pants_world

Party_pants_world_close1The 1" strip of Going Global DSP was cropped with the Triple Banner Punner Punch and then I stapled the string of sequins to the banner with the 1/2" Circle Punch for a bit of added interest.

Party_pants_world_close

Party Pants Balloons

Have you seen the NEW Party Pants stamp set?  If not, take a look.  It is such a great birthday set and it can be used for any birthday, male, female, adults, kids, anyone.  Just change the colors and you can have cards for all the birthdays on your list.

Party_pants_cucumber_pacific

I chose Pacific Point and Cucumber Crush for this card, perfect for my nephew.

The balloons were inked in Cucumber Crush, stamped off once and then onto my scraps of Whisper White.  I cropped them with the Balloon Bouquet Punch so I had two different sizes.  The greetings on the balloons come in the set and I inked them with Pacific Point and stamped them on the balloons.  The greeting "put your party pants on" just cracks me up and I know I will get a lot of use out of this set. 

I used a strip of the white Glitter Tape to separate the square of Everyday Chic DSP from the to of the card.  The strings are adhered to the back of each balloon and hand freely.

Measurements:
Everyday Chic DSP - 2-1/2 x 3
Whisper White - 3 x 4-1/4, scraps for balloons
Cucumber Crush - 3-1/4 x 4-1/2
Pacific Point - 5-1/2 x 8-1/2

Instructions:
1. Adhere Everyday Chic DSP to the Whisper White layer.
2. Run a strip of the white Glitter Tape across the Whisper White layer at the top of the DSP, leaving a bit hanging off the edge.
3. Ink balloon image in Cucumber Crush ink, stamp off once and then onto a scrap of Whisper White, repeat this to make two balloons. Crop with the Balloon Bouquet PunchGenerate Links , you want one of each size.
4. Stamp the greetings where shown in Pacific Point ink.
5. Put a small amount of SNAIL adhesive to the back of each balloon and add a 3" piece of the Whisper White Baker's Twine.
6. Add the large balloon to the Whisper White layer with SNAIL adhesive and the smaller balloon with a Stampin' Dimensional.
7. Adhere the Whisper White layer to the Cucumber Crush mat
8. Add this layer to the main card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Love is in the Air!

Love is in the air!!  How fun is this card?! :-)  I used the Balloon Celebration Bundle to create the balloons and the greeting is from Bloomin' Love. Balloon_celebration_valentine

The balloons were stamped in our Basic Black on a few different patterns from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cropped them with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and added them to the balloon strings, the smaller ones were added with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The greeting is stamped in Rose Red and then a tiny black heart was cropped from the Owl Builder Punch and is covered with Wink of Stella in clear and added with a drop of adhesive from the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Balloon_celebration_valentine_close1I wanted to add some interest to the left edge so I added a skinny strip of Basic Black and a strip of Rose Red trimmed with the Small Scallop Stampin Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade and the Stampin Trimmer Rotary Addition.

I love what this little element adds to the card.

The tiny bow on the balloons was hand cut with our Paper Snips.  I just love how this card turned out. :-)

Bow Builder Punch - 50% off!

The bow Builder PUnch is part of the online Extravaganza and is 50% off.  This awesome punch is only $9!!  Did you know that you can create more than bows with this punch?  Well, you Can!!

Here is one idea for you.....a Christmas Light bulb!  Yep, the Bow Builder Punch can be used to create Christmas Lights in any color.  I added my bulbs to these super cute Hershey's Nugget Treats.  These are the perfect gift for all those people on your list that you want to thank but can't spend too much to do so.

A_little_something_nuggets
The bulb is created by cropping the pieces in the color of your choice, and then trimming the largest piece to resemble the bulb.  Here's a visual for you:

Bow_bulb

I colored the base of the bulb with a Gold Sharpie Marker and added the detail with our White Stampin' Chalk Marker.

I used various strips of Designer Series Paper from the Home for Christmas Pack.  The strips are cut to 1" x 3", wrapped around the Nuggets and secured with a Glue Dot. 

A_little_something_papers

The little tray the chocolates are sitting in is 2" x 4" and scored 1/4" down each long side.  fold up the tray, add two strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the chocolates.  I purchased the 2" x 10" bags online.

The tag is stamped in Mossy Meadow and I used the A Little Something stamp set.  This is one of the items that will be retiring out of the Holiday Catalog so get it while you can.  The tag was die cut from the Tags & Labels Framelits set.

Ice Cream Cone Chapstick Holders

My daughter is a Freshman this year and has chosen to swim with our High School Swim Team.  They have a meet today and I wanted to give each of the girls a little something so show our school spirit.

Sprinkles_of_life_ladybroncs

I got the idea from my friend Becky.  I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and our school colors and packaged them individually with each girls name.  I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Swim Fast Lady Broncs!!!

Sprinkles_of_life_ladybroncs1 Sprinkles_of_life_cone_threeI used the Dots and Stripes Mask to add the polka dots to my tissue paper.  Lay the  mask over the tissue paper and use a Sponge Dauber to add the Soft Sky Ink to the dots.
Sprinkles_of_life_cone_side
I prepared the ice cream cones by stamping and punching/cutting the cones and ice cream. The cherry on top is one of the punch outs from the Cupcake Builder Punch and I added a tiny rhinestone for a bit of bling.

Sprinkles_of_life_cone_box*Cut your cardstock to 2-3/4 x 2-5/8
*With the 2-3/4 side at the top of the Simply Scored Tool, score at 5/8, 1-1/4, 1-7/8 and 2-1/2

Fun Flowers with the DSP Stacks!

The new annual catalog is out! Woo hoo!!! I don’t know about you, but my wish list is long.

We have new Designer Series Papers and some of the stacks were used on these projects.  Check out these diagonal striped and tiny floral patterns! For this project, I used Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder. It takes just a minute or two to make these fun little floral accents.  Punch a flower from each pattern in all four colors with the Flower Medallion Punch. Just snip the petals to give them a little dimension, layer them and add them to the tags using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The tags are cut from our Kraft Cardstock and were cropped with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.

Don't you just love the adorable floral centers? They are our new 2015­–2017 In Color Blossom Accents.  Each flower is 1/2" in diameter and there are 20 flowers per package, four each of five colors.  The stamp sets featured here are Friendly Wishes and Sweet Stack.

I attached each flower tag to a striped layer (3-1/4 x 4-3/4) and then to our new Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 7 x 5 and folded in half.  This new cardstock is quite a bit thicker than our regular Whisper White and makes the perfect card base.
