I had a great afternoon crafting with my MIL when they visited at the weekend and we enjoyed using the new Two-step Owl (MILs ordered her own now!).
It prompted me to dig my Punch Bunch set out again. This stamp set was free with orders over £45 during Sale-a-bration. Although it's no longer available, I do have a set left to give as a hostess gift for the next person that books a workshop with me (please email me to book and be sure to mention the Punch Bunch offer so that I put it to one side for you).
The set is ideal to make very quick cards such as this one:
Stamp set: Punch Bunch (retired)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise
DSP: Play Date
Punches: Square Scallop, Two-step Owl
The card base is a 10cm square of Chocolate Chip matted with a square of So Saffron popped up on dimensionals. Smaller squares of Play Date DSP were adhered direct to opposite corners. The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White card with Tempting Turquoise ink, punched out with the Square Scallop and popped up on dimensionals on the card front. The owl was stamped onto Whisper White card with Chocolate Chip ink, punched out with the Two-step Owl (aligning it as shown below) and also popped up on dimensionals. Done!
If you didn't grab this set while Sale-a-bration was on and you're too far away for a workshop with me, then you can still create a similar card but it will take a little longer. You can still order the punch from me if you live at a distance and I can get it posted to you (please email me to order yours).
The card base is the same again - a 10cm square of Chocolate Chip matted with a square of So Saffron popped up on dimensionals and smaller squares of Play Date DSP adhered direct to opposite corners. This time the sentiment was stamped a line at a time onto Whisper White card with Tempting Turquoise ink and punched out with the 1-1/4". This was matted onto a Scallop Square of tempting Turquoise and popped up on dimensionals on the card front. The owl body and the middle size eyes were punched from Chocolate Chip card, the vest was punched from Play Date DSP and the large and tiny eyes were punched from Whisper White card. The owl layers were assembled using Tombow and then popped up on dimensionals. Cutesy.
And this punch isn't just for owls! I'll be posting some alternative ideas over the coming weeks so please pop back soon.
