While I was using my new DECORATIVE LABEL PUNCH this morning to make a label for my photo box, I started playing around with the punch and some red & vanilla scraps of paper ... I plopped them all down in my Punch Art book & then I thought I'd share it here with you all! You can find the DECORATIVE LABEL PUNCH on pg 25 of Stampin' Up!'s HOLIDAY MINI catalogue.
Now these are just patterns, not finished projects.
In just a few minutes of playtime (well ok, maybe an hour) I managed to make four different labels, two sets of parenthesis, two frames (one with fancy corners), a tiny banner, a cupcake or pot of pudding (I'm not sure which it is), and a purse.
I keep looking at that purse - I think I could turn it into a whistling tea kettle or a funky tulip with a little more time, but I need to move on to other projects right now, sigh.
OTHER PUNCHES USED in these samples:
- Word Window (punched at both ends to shorten it)
- Modern Label
- 1/4" Handheld Circle (retired)
- Heart to Heart (smallest heart)
- Round Tab (pudding pot)
- Large Oval and Small Oval (purse handle)
Everything else was punched from the DECORATIVE LABEL PUNCH - seriously a versitile punch, therefore a very frugal purchase! (insert a nod of approval here from THE FRUGAL STAMPER)
Remember, always look at your scraps when you punch .. you never know what ideas might pop out at you!
