Watercolour Words - Punch Art


One of my favourite things to eat in the summer is Watermelon!! I love the yummy refreshing taste and just can't get enough of it!! How about you, do you like to eat Watermelon?

My project today was a fun punch art card that was created by Ronda Wade who is an amazing leader. She has taught me so much this year about business, and my numbers reflect that! If you are looking for some help for your Stampin' Up business, make sure you check her out!

When I saw this adorable card as part of this month's downline meeting planner, I couldn't wait to recreate it! And the best part is it uses my favourite Incolours!!

Angry Birds


I love when you can use your favourite tools for more then what you bought it for. I love my punches and love when you can use them in other ways. Punch Art is so trendy these days and you can make anything out of them!

Nancy one of my customers shared this fun card that she made for her grandson. She found some angry bird cards on Pinterest and adapt it to her style.

Pirate Owl Swap Card


I recently had the chance to swap with ladies that earned the Hilton Head Incentive Trip. There was 20 in my group, and then in return we received 20 unique cards. I can't wait to CASE some of this for upcoming classes and to show you on my blog.

This card was made by Lynn Starzl. I LOVE how she used the OWL punch and turned him into a One Eye Pirate!! What a fun way to show the many things that you can do with our punches.

I have to say that I do love these In colours. Some days I can't get enough of them and I'm so glad that they are staying for another year!!

Update on Retiring Accessories List: This list is update daily and I wanted to let you know that stuff is flying off the shelves as most of the Craft Ink refills, and 12 by 12 cardstocks are sold out. There is a lot of product on this list, and it's overwhelming. I would suggest printing off the list and highlighting your catalogue as this is a great way to see what is exactly retiring. Items with an X means they are sold out!!
