Three For You Punch Box Samples

I just love to make 3 X 3 cards and using Stampin' Up's!® Three For You Punch Box and their new textured paper make it fun and easy. All of the cards pictured use just that. At a recent class we made these cards along with a gift box for storing. Many of the cards shown were cased from Splitcoast. Please e-mail me with any questions.

Fabulous Flowers Card

This is one of the many great cards that we learned how to make at Stampin' Up's!® annual convention. I finally got around to making it and it turned out beautifully. It uses the Fabulous Flowers & Wanted stamp sets, Scallop Circle Punch & the new Pretties Kit. I also sewed the inside flower using our Very Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon. I just loved the way it turned out, what do you think?

Lovely As a Tree Christmas Card

This set has been a favorite since I became a Stampin' Up!® demonstrator in 2001. I demonstrate this set almost every year and stampers always love it. My favorite technique using Lovely As a Tree is Versamark® resist. Using our Glossy White card stock, I stamp the trees with Versamark. I also use Versamark with the dots in another favorite set, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, for the snow flakes. I then brayer my card stock with our Blue Frost Spectrum Pad. I then ink my stamp using our Basic Black pad and off set it so the resist set of trees look like a shadow. Finishing touches are white organdy ribbon and silver cording.
