Mixed Bunch of Blossoms and a Matching Punch

Don't you love having punches to match a stamp set?  The new occasions mini has a new punch - the Blossom Punch. Its a BIG flower with ruffled edges. There's also a new stamp set called Mixed Bunch, which is 3 different flower shapes that match the punch. There are also 3 gorgeous smaller circle images that you can use for the center of the flowers. I think the top set of petals with the top center would make a beautiful sunflower, don't you?


What? You haven't seen the new mini catalog yet?   Use these links to see it on-line.

This was one of the cards we did at the January Stamp-a-Stack. I offered people a choice of colors and most chose to make one of each. You can see how well the stamped image fits into the punch. I posted a few other pictures of this punch and stamp set a few days ago.

There are lots of little extras on this card: the layering on the center of the flower, the layer behind the Designer Paper and the little scalloped edging along the top strip of the designer paper. By the Way, that tiny scalloped edge is a strip cut using the Dotted Scallop Border Punch, we taped most of it behind the Designer Paper strip and just left 1 edge exposed. What do you think? Sweet little border isn't it?

I'm off to a Stampin'UP! Leadership Convention tomorrow. I'm headed off to beautiful San Antonio. This is my first Leadership event and I'm really excited. There will be lots of motivating workshops and speakers and hundreds of samples on display. I am always so wow'd by what I see at the big summer convention, the world is full of some really talented and creative people. I'll try to post some pictures of what I see when I'm there - I think you'll be impressed too. More to come this week . . .

Happy Stamping
