I am excited to share with you today my Pinkies team entries for challenge where where they needed to make projects using our punches. We have amazing punches manufactured by EK Success in our own exclusive designs and they make using the coordinating stamp sets a breeze! We sell so many lovely punches and I have to confess that when a punch retires I don’t part with it which might be why my punch draw is groaning under the weight and has had to be reinforced several times! Before I show you what ideas and projects my team came up with I wanted to share with you the card I made using the Holly Berry Builder Punch. I have been wanting a punch to create holly for some time and love this punch as it has two sizes of holly, the berries and also a lovely bow. This card was pretty quick to make which is just what I need at this time of year as I am feeling rather swamped and disorganised.
I die cut a wreath from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and added a sentiment in the centre on vellum from the Wonder of Christmas stamp set and added some gold bakers twine and gold metallic thread along with the holly which was punched out of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and coloured with Garden Green marker pen.
I added the beautiful red enamel shapes for berries and added a black dot to make them appear more like real berries. Love that holly embossed back ground too which I sponged in whisper white ink and distressed the edges to give a more vintage feel to the card.
So it is now time to reveal what my wonderful team members have been creating with their Stampin’ Up! punches and I would love you to vote for your 3 favourite projects.
