~Mouth: Five Basic Black 1/2″ Circles Punch

Also punch out the three Tree trunks and branches from Early Espresso card stock.. Lay them on the Soft Sky card stock in the desired positions. I just glued the two outside tree parts down. The center tree has Dimensionals under the Leaves with the tree branches glued on to the leaves. I glued the Trunk down, but wish I would have used Dimensionals under it. 4. Cut your “Grateful” from So Saffron card stock. Position the 3 Trees Panel and the Grateful. Attach the Tree Panel first-I used Tombow Glue. Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the Grateful. Be careful to not squeeze out too much glue. I have found it helpful to place the word down, then use a Kleenex to press the word down. The Kleenex comes up easily and I don’t leave glue finger prints on the card.
My friend Deborah made these Christmas Tags for me as a Thank You. Use these ideas as a starting point to creating some Christmas Tags of your own. She used Stamps and ink, the Oh What Fun stamp set, Punches, Her Big Shot and some Framelits, stickers, silver embossing powder, gold cord, Baker’s Twine, Ribbons, and Rhinestones. So grab some supplies and a Christmas movie and have fun making some Christmas Tags! She used the retired Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Punch.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set and the retired Snowflake punch.
She used the Bird Builder Punch, the Corner Rounder Punch, and the Merry Everything stamp set.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set, the retired Labels Framelits, and a circle punch.
If you don’t want to come up with the ideas yourself, just get the Oh What Fun Project Kit and Stamp Set. If you buy them from me I will send you the Tutorial FREE. OR you can buy the Tutorial HERE.

This video shows you how to make a Mat to go under your Note Tag Punch sentiment to finish the Festive Flower Poinsettia Card from last week. This technique can be used with any punch and a variety of Framelits if they don’t have the Mat width you want.
TIPS: Try this technique with a variety of Punches and Framelits.
1. Stamp & punch out your sentiment. 2. Punch out TWO Real Red card stock Note Tag Punch images. Cut one horizontally in half and the other vertically in half. 3. Position the cut halves to decide if you want to layer the horizontal or vertical layers first. 4. Cover the back of your sentiment punch with Snail. Position the layers in the order you decided in Step 3. 5. Add to your card with Dimensionals.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Mint Macaron card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Pink Pirouette Layer at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Attach to card base. 3. Cut your English Gardens paper at 3-3/4″ x 4-3/4″. Attach to Pink Pirouette layer. 4. Punch your 1″ and 1-3/4″ Circles from Rose Red card stock. Sponge the edges if desired. Layer together with Dimensionals. Thread your White Baker’s Twine through the button holes and tie a bow. Attach button to flower with 2 Glue Dots. 5. Cut out two leaves using the Flower Fair Framelits, your Big Shot, and Wild Wasabi card stock. (Or just use scissors to cut your leaves.) Attach your leaves to the bottom of the 1-3/4″ Circle using Glue Dots, Snail, or Fast Fuse. Attach Dimensionals to the Bottom of the Flower and Glue Dots to the tips of the leaves. 6. Attach your Jute Ribbon to your card front with Glue Dots. I put one one each corner at the ends. Now attach your Flower and leaves in the desired position. 7. Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White card stock with Rose Red ink. Punch out with the Washi Label punch. Attach to the ribbon with Dimensionals. 8. Send this flower card to brighten someone’s day!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crushed Curry card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″/ Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Daffodil Delight card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the NEW larger Fluttering embossing folder. Attach to your card base. 3. Cut your Whisper White Tag at 1-3/4″ wide by at least 5-1/2″ long. Stamp your sentiment in Delightful Dijon ink. I stamped mine close to the lower edge and centered it on the tag. I then punched the top end using the Scallop Topper Punch, and the other end with the Banner Triple Punch. OPTION: You can punch the ends first, then do the stamping. Doing this will make it easier to get your sentiment stamped in the center. This is what I will encourage my ladies at class to do. 4. Thread about 6″ of Baker’s Twine through the Tag hole. 5. Punch out a large and small butterfly from Gold Glimmer Paper. Attach with Glue Dots in the desired positions. 6. You are finished and ready to send it to an Awesome someone.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Garden Green card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Take your scissors (scissors with a longer blade were easier for me) and cut wavy lines along the edges. The edges do not have to be even. 3. Make sure and stamp on top of your Stampin’ Pierce Mat for good results. Stamp your Tree Leaves in Garden Green ink on your Whisper White card front towards the top, leaving about a 3/8″ border at the top of the card stock. 4. Stamp your Tree Trunk in Chocolate Chip over the Tree Leaves. 5. Stamp your Grass in Garden Green at the bottom of your Tree Trunk. 6. You could just stamp your sentiment under your grass in Chocolate Chip ink if you want. OR if you mess up……. Stamp your sentiment in Chocolate Chip on a piece of 1/2″ high x 4-1/4″ long Whisper White card stock. Trim with the Banner Triple Punch. Cut your Garden Green Banner at 1″ x 4-1/4″. Trim with the Banner Triple Punch. Layer the Banners with Dimensionals and attach to your card front. TIP: You might want to make a pencil line where you want the tips (longest ends) of your Banners to end. Just make sure to punch off your line. Otherwise, there is a lot of guesswork and wasted paper. 7. Attach your card front to your card base. I used lots of half Dimensionals. 8. Send it to someone and bring a smile to their day when they get their mail.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Watermelon Wonder card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. (I would use either Bermuda Bay or Pool Party for the Birthday Boy.) 2. Cut your Balloon print paper at 2″ wide. Make sure your print is going the correct direction. Put the bottom into the Banner Triple Punch to cut the notch off the bottom. Wasn’t that fun and easy! Sponge around the edges with Watermelon Wonder ink if desired. Attach with Fast Fuse or SNAIL. 3. Stamp the cupcake liner with Tip Top Taupe ink on Whisper White card stock. Stamp your “Cloud/Frosting” in Watermelon Wonder ink on top of the cupcake liner on the Whisper White card stock AND on some Watermelon Wonder card stock. Punch out the Watermelon Wonder card stock Frosting. 4. Color the candle with the Watermelon Wonder marker and the flame with the Delightful Dijon marker. Remoisten and stamp so the candle only sticks above the frosting about 1/2″. Punch out the whole cupcake with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch. If your candle is too tall you can use an Oval Framelit. Now sponge around the edge with Watermelon Wonder ink. 5. Finish the cupcake by coloring the cupcake liner with the Delightful Dijon marker. Layer on the Watermelon Wonder Frosting with Dimensionals. Tie a Baker’s Twine bow and attach with a Glue Dot or Tombow Glue. Put Dimensionals on the back of the Circle and position on the card front. 6. Your card is now ready to give to the Birthday Girl or Boy.
I am excited to finally be able to use the Bow Punch! I pictured this card in my head in Gold. You could also make it in Silver or any other color if you want. This is a great card to hand-deliver to someone special, perhaps with a gift.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Brushed Gold card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Polka Dot Vellum and Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Put Glue Dots on the back side of the outer Polka Dots and attach to the Whisper White card stock. Trim if necessary. Attach to your card base. 3. You will need to punch twice for each bow for a total of 4 Gold Foil and 2 Gold Glimmer Paper. Use your Bone Folder to curl the long Bow piece between the two end tabs. Also curl one of the center pieces for each bow. (You will have extra of this piece.) 4.Assemble your Bow. Put a Glue Dot on one tab of the long Bow piece and attach the two tabs together. Repeat for the second long Bow piece. Attach the two Bow pieces together with a Glue Dot on the center tab. Now attach the ribbon ends with Glue Dots on the center tabs. You might also want to add a second Glue Dot close to the center tab to keep the Ribbon end in place better. Now put a Glue Dot on the center back of your Bow pieces. Place the end of the small Center piece in the center of the Glue Dot, then wrap it around your Bow layers and attach it tightly to the Glue Dot. It should meet perfectly! (or really close to perfectly!!) 5. Assemble your other two Bows. 6. Lay your Bows in the desired positions on your card front. Attach each Bow to the card using three Glue Dots: one in the center back, one on each part of the Ribbon back. 7. Write on the inside of your Gilded card. Note: This card will NOT fit inside a regular envelope unless you flatten the Bows. I would not recommend flattening the Gold Foil Bows as you will leave Bone Folder marks.
This Tiny Treat Box decorated with a Punch Art Bunny is ready for Easter or a Spring Treat or small gift. It is pretty quick to make. Just two punches and two Markers to make it. Yes, I did draw on the face. You can use the Owl Punch for eyes if you want or use googly eyes. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You can even let the children draw the face themselves. It will be cute whoever draws it!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Punch one 1-3/4″ Circle and two Large Ovals from Whisper White card stock. 2. Color the pink parts of the Large Oval ears with your Blushing Bride Marker. 3. Draw the eyes with your Basic Black Marker. Draw your triangle nose with your Blushing Bride Marker. Now draw you mouth and whiskers with the fine tip of your Basic Black Marker. 4. Put Glue Dots on the bottom front of each ear and attach to the back of your Bunny Head. If desired, tie a small bow with Silver Ribbon (or another color) and attach to your Bunny as a Bow Tie. 5. Stamp the Sentiments on the top flap of your Tiny Treat Box. 6. Measure 6″ of Organza Ribbon cutting the ends at an angle if desired. Attach to your Tiny Treat Box sides and back with Fast Fuse. I did fold my box to make sure which side was the front. It is easier to put the Ribbon on the box when it is flat. 7. Since the Bunny Head will make it hard to open your box, fold a 3″ piece of Organza Ribbon in half and staple to the lid flap of your box. 8. Assemble your box: The flap with the “U”, the sides, then tuck in the long flap. Flatten from the inside if necessary. You can put your treats or small gift in now. 9. Now use Fast Fuse or Glue Dots to attach your Bunny to the front of your Tiny Treat Box.
My daughter’s and son-in-law’s anniversary was on St. Patrick’s Day and this is the card I made for them. Most of it is quick and easy except for the Heart drying time. Enjoy tweaking this one for someone special. You could use any punched or die cut shape instead of the hearts.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Daffodil Delight card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Night of Navy card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Stamp your sentiment in Silver ink. Let dry for a few seconds. Run through your Big Shot with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. 3. Punch your Hearts from the Silver and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Lay on the card front in the position you want. Now punch your small stars from Daffodil Delight card stock. Put a dot of Tombow Glue on an embossed Night of Navy Star and glue your punched star on top of an embossed star. Do this until you have as many stars as you want above your hearts. 4. Now lay your sparkly Hearts on the Silicone Craft Sheet. Cover each Heart with Crystal Effects. Let dry for 4-5 hours or overnight. (You can just use the Hearts without the Crystal Effects if you want.) 5. After your Crystal Effects has dried on your Hearts, trim any overhanging Crystal Effects from around the edges of your Hearts with Paper Snips. Glue onto your card. 6. Stamp your sentiment in Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Cut out with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelit. Color the edges with your Daffodil Delight Marker. Attach to Hearts with Glue Dots. 7. If you want to add some excitement to the envelope you can use the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder on the envelope flap. Watch this Video to show you how to do this.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crisp Cantaloupe card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Choose the pattern of the Designer Series Paper you want and cut it at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Attach to card base with Fast Fuse OR SNAIL Adhesive. 3. Stamp your flower image on Whisper White card stock with black ink. NOTE: Use Memento Black ink with Photopolymer stamps. StayzOn will permanently make them black. Color the flowers with Markers. Due to the shading in the stamps only simple coloring is needed to make the flower look great! 4. Choose the desired Oval Framelit to cut out your flower. Yes, I cut off part of the stem. Choose the next larger Oval Framelit and use it to cut your Crisp Cantaloupe mat. Put Dimensionals on the back of both Ovals and layer them together. 5. Stamp Happy Easter in Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Punch out with the Word Window Punch. Punch the mat from Crisp Cantaloupe card stock using the Modern Label Punch. Attach your sentiment with Fast Fuse or SNAIL Adhesive. Put Dimensionals on the back. I usually use three half Dimensionals on the back of the Modern Label piece. 6. Lay out your Ovals and sentiment in the desired positions and then attach them. 7. Happy Easter!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Daffodil Delight card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Use the Finishing Touch Edgelits on the long side of the card stock leaving about 1/4″ from the edge. When cutting the second edge just move the Edgelit to the other side of the card stock. We did need to use Post it Notes to hold it in place even with the Magnetic Platform. 3. Stamp your Border Flowers with Memento Black ink along both the Finishing Touches Borders you just cut. Color the flowers, leaves and stems with Markers. 4. Stamp your Flower with Daffodil Delight. We needed the Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get a good image with the Photopolymer stamp. Punch out with the Scallop Punch. Cut between every other petal down about halfway. Now curl with your Bone Folder. Then place in the palm of your hand and round your palm to help the petals for a nice shape. I know this last part sounds weird, but it does help the flower look better. Use Glue Dots to attach to the center of your card front. 5. Use 2-3 Glue Dots on the back of the Something Borrowed embellishment and attach it to the center of your flower. 6. You now have a bright, happy card you can use for any occasion.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Blackberry Bliss card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Ir DSP at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Sponge randomly in circles first with Rich Razzleberry, then sponge to fill in with Blackberry Bliss. Sponge as light or as dark as you want. 3. Cut your Ribbon at about 16″. Wrap around your DSP and tie a knot. Trim ends if desired. I usually put a Glue Dot under the knot to keep the ribbon in place. If the ribbon doesn’t look good I put a Glue Dot next to the knot to keep the tails in place. You can now attach your DSP to your card base. 4. Stamp your sentiment and flowers in Blackberry Bliss ink. Punch out your sentiment with the Large Oval Punch. Sponge around sentiment if desired. Punch out your Petite Petal Flowers with the Petite Petal Punch. Curl the ends of your flower petals with a Bone Folder. 5. Cut out the desired size Label Framelit from Rich Razzleberry card stock using your Big Shot. Now run through your Big Shot using the Fancy Fan embossing folder making sure the fans go the direction you want. Use Dimensionals on both the label and the punched sentiment to attach them to the card front. 6. Attach your flowers to your card front with Glue Dots. You can add Dazzling Details to the flower centers and around the edge of your Punched sentiment if desired. Set aside to dry for several hours. 7. If desired, cut a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White and attach on the inside of the card to write on. You can also stamp some flowers in the lower corners if desired.
