Punchy Punches

These are the samples of what we made at my Punchy Punches Class last night. I wanted to find a way to use some our new punches. I was also able to work in new IN Colors & rhinestone brads. It was alot of fun!

I found this layout on Stampin' Up! stampers showcase. I tweaked the colors & the layout a bit & really like it. I use Purely Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi, & Groovy Guava CS along with good ol' Chocolate Chip CS & ink. The squares are 3/4 in sqaure punched from Linen Prints patterned papers. I also used the sprial punch to make the notebook paper look.

This is a 12x12 scrapbook page using Baroque Motifs, the new scallop punch & rhinestone brads. I used Bashful Blue CS to back the cirlce punches. I gave everyone the option of using Real Red, Tempting Turqoise, Pretty in Pink or Bashful Blue. I love the way it turned out.

This card uses the Linen Prints designer papers along with the small & large oval punches & chocolate taffeta ribbon. I attached the ribbon by cutting a piece that is only larger by an inch on the front (ex: patterned paper is 5 1/4 x 4 so the ribbon is cut at 5in). Then I cut another 2 inch piece of ribbon & ties a half knot to make it appear as if it went all the way around. Great way to save on ribbon!

This was an easy card using a stamp set that comes with the starter kit, Much Appreciated. Using River Rock, Wild Wasabi, & Purely Pomegratnite CS & Purely Pomegranite double stiched ribbon & rhinestone brads, this was a quick & simple card to make. I think I might use this as a swap at convention next week.
