Just a quick post today. Yesterday I showed you how to make a cut out card with a circle punch. Today I want to show you 2 cards I’ve made using the same technique but using the Stampin’ Up! decorative label punch instead. The stamped images are from the Stampin’ Up! Fancy Frames set. This is a really versatile set – if you are looking for ways to add sentiments to cards I’d really encourage you to think about this set with the matching punch. The ‘happy birthday’ and ‘thank you’ come from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set. Another indispensable one for your collection.
This card is made with Island Indigo and Whisper White (embossed with the square lattice embossing folder). I’ve used matching Island Indigo ribbon and sponged in ink around the white layer for extra depth.
This one is made with Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White and Perfect Plum with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.
Here are close ups of the cut outs:
You can see I’ve used the reverse side of the polka dot embossing for something different. I used my Stampin’ Write markers to get the multicoloured image on the stamp.
I’ll let you in on a little secret with this one. See the rhinestone? It is actually covering up a small smudge in the stamped image, but I actually think it works! Someone once told me that “A mistake is just an excuse for an embellishment”. In this case, they might be right!
