This next project has my Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch and Martha Stewart 3-in-1 Hydrangea punch to good use making my own embellishment flowers! These two punches layer so amazingly together! All you need are some small pop dots to make them dimensional and you are good to go! :D I used two other flower punches on this project as well-the Martha Stewart Cornflower punch (as seen directly below) and the Martha Stewart Cosmos punch (seen in the next picture). And to make these flowers complete I added punches from some of my Jenni Bowlin Bingo cards made with the Martha Stewart Rose Leaf punch and the Martha Stewart Frond punch! :D This album was probably the most fun of anything I have done with punches!
Next to last is this little LO that I made a while ago, and it is really a very simple LO but I LOVE it! :D One of my all time favs. On this Lo I used my Marvy 1 1/2 inch Scallop lever punch and layered two punched papers of different colors on top of each other, with the darker paper on the back so that only a teeny bit showed up behind the blue paper. And that was my main accent. Using a small amount of paper in an effective way is sometimes all you need to make a LO! :D The other two punches used here are, of course, my Martha Stewart 3-in-1 Butterfly punch and then my EK Success Tiny Dotted Scallop edger punch. The EK Success punch I used to subtley merge the white cardstock with the black cardstock, so that hopefully it wasn't such a huge contrast. And it turned out to be a really fun accent to do! Another way to creatively use your punches to add some fun and texture to your LOs! :D
I really hope that I have inspired you and given you some ideas on ways to use your punches and scissors, instead of completely overwhelming you with an incredibly picture heavy post. :D Please let me know if there are any specific things you would like me to do in the future for my T&T posts, because as I said before I am soooo not a techniquey person (or at least I don't think so), but really want to show you what you want to see! So let me know! :D Thanks!
Two more things before I go-
The Fun in the Sun crop is still going on! All the challenges are up on the boards here, and all of them have the same due date of the 16th! Which still gives you some time if you hop on over there and get started! Good Luck! :D
And the last thing, Sweet Sue is up for preorder!! Woot Woot! Be sure to go pick yours up today as these are going to go real fast!! I can not wait to get my hands on mine!!! This is going to be my fav kit yet as it is just gorgeous and I love the colors! :D
