Punches Galore… or, in my case… GETTING PUNCHY!

Many of you will have arrived from Jane Hignite’s blog… some of you may not have.

At any rate, this is the last blog hop of this VC-Rocks season! We have prepared for you a selection of creative items using punches!

First up – a quickie baby card I made for a shower last weekend… the punches are really understated on the front… until you understand that this is a hybrid card and the pinkish looking circles in the background all have a 1/2 inch circle punched out and adhered to them, plus the shape holding “baby” is an MDS punch. I have a little tutorial for this on another day.


There is even punchart inside – the tag plus the little heart on the owl (awwwwww).


Another item I’d like to share with you today is this card. The flowers are from “Button Buddies” and I’ll have a tutorial on this one one day, but quickly – I stamped the flowers, punched them out with the scallop punch and used dimensionals to pop them up. I love blue and yellow together!!!!


OK, so this isn’t punch art, but it’s awfully cute…

Finally, some back to school punch art from the past using the owl punch:

First day owl in freehand tree smaller

The tree was handcut and given some wood texture. Big Shot letters were used on the title.
