Hello friends and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!! I can't wait to see all the great ideas!! You've probably just arrived from Rhonda's Blog (The Stampin' Bunny), weren't her creations just AWESOME!!
I am featuring the Punch Bunch set, one of the exclusive SAB sets this year! My thought process on this set was to use as many of the 5 different stamps as I could, but I found I didn't really use them together. So, I have 4 cards for you, using 4 of the stamps. Oh, and true to the name of the set, I used a Bunch of Punches!! Note a supply list for each card is at the bottom of the post, under the previous/next blog links.
First up is the fun little square card. I love making these every once in awhile just because they are different! The "card" sits on the back and you can't see it. The square is around 4-1/4" and I find a 4" square ( 8"x4" card stock, folded) is perfect on the back, it sits just inside the scallops. I used the Happy Birthday image on this one, and combined it with some of the other fun Sale-A-Bration items: DSP, ribbon and buttons!! The Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper and Quick Accents pack has very bright colors, hence the bright colors of this card! The Scallop Square Bigz Die was used on Pacific Point textured paper for the base layer. A Daffodil Delight accent layer is behind a background of dotted DSP. Across the center of the card is a Pacific Point strip punched with the Dotted Ribbon Scallop Border. Across that I knotted the Ice Cream Parlor 1/4" Grosgrain. Isn't it bright and fun!!?? The Happy Birthday scallop square was stamped in Pacific Point on Whisper White and punched with the Scallop Square punch. It's attached with dimensionals to a Daffodil Delight scallop square cut with the Scallop Squares Duo Die. That is also attached with dimensionals to set over the ribbon. For my final accent I added the Ice Cream Parlor buttons at the top left and bottom right edges. I always think buttons need something in the center, so these have some white thread knotted through.
Next up is this fun Poppy card! I have no idea if this flower even remotely resembles a Poppy, but it seemed the perfect fit for the Poppy Parade color!! Card base is Pear Pizzazz, background is Whisper White and Poppy Parade striped DSP. I stamped the flowers across just above center. I inked them with the markers and used a stamp-a-ma-jig and my grid paper for decent placement. They slant downhill just a bit, but what line of flowers grows perfect straight?? LOL!! Across the center is a Pear Pizzazz strip that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch. I knotted a Poppy Parade ribbon around the middle before attaching that layer. For the accent piece, I inked the stamp with Poppy Parade and punched with the Scallop Circle (1-3/4") Punch. A Pear Pizzazz 1-3/8" circle in next with the flowers on a 1-1/4" circle. They were inked with markers too so the stems could be Pear. The scallop is attached with dimensionals to sit over the ribbon.
Next up, a scallop circle card! It's been a very long time since I did one of these and it just seemed like it would work with the owls. I did a Mr & Mrs for a Happy Anniversary card! I used the Ice Cream Parlor DSP again, and the buttons! These bright colors are so much fun! This time on the buttons, I threaded it through but didn't knot on the top. Mr & Mrs Owl are standing on stems cut with the Sweetest Stem Embosslit. I stamped the owls in Pacific Point and Melon Mambo, then used my coordinating punch to add DSP to personalize them. The saying is punched with the Word Window, layered onto a Modern Label and then onto a Large Oval. Note this card folds open, see the straight line across the top? Place a folded piece of card stock just down from the outside score line and you'll get a scallop circle card!!
Finally, a Baby card using the tag punches. It's been a very long time since these have been out! I wasn't sure at first on this card, but it's growing on me. I love the soft, subtle colors together! I'm thinking it would be great for a shower invitation!! Card base is Certainly Celery, with a So Saffron layer behind the Whisper White background. For the background, I stamped just the mobile (by inking just the umbrella and ducks with marker) randomly around in baby colors: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink. A Certainly Celery wide grosgrain ribbon is around the center and the tags are set over that with dimensionals. I stamped those images fully and punched with the Large Tag and layered onto the Extra-Large Tag. I used glue dots to attach some regular Certainly Celery grosgrain to the back of each. For a final accent, I added a tiny Rhinestone to each tag. Sweet!!
