Last week I made a card featuring Stampin' Up!'s Blossom Punch, even made a video tutorial of it, yet it never got posted due to feeling lousy. So today I am excited to share it with you!
I love punches, let's just get that out of the way. I have them all, I love them all and I cannot craft without them all. But, when you get a punch that coordinates with a stamp set, it is like an angel landed right on your shoulder. (yes, I really do feel that way) I feel like I can create anything with the stamp set and the punch.
So image me getting my mini catalog in the mail a while back and seeing the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set WITH the Blossom Punch. It was like my office windows instantly grew shutters, that immediately blew open, the blue birds all flooded to see what the joyous event was and there was the angel, right on my shoulder. I am pretty sure that I let out a squeal too.
Now, I am sure that for this card, you are expecting to see the one of the big flowers from the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set along with the Blossom Punch, but nope, this is all about the punch! I love that you can use the punch with or without the big flower stamp. When I said this last week at my stamp club, I got a look from one of my stampers of utter confusement. How is that possible? I told her that I would show her, and thought some of you might like to see it too, and that is where this card idea came from and the video tutorial.
