Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

Punch Your Art Out for the Pals Blog Hop - Layering Leaves Thank You

Punch your art out is such a fun theme! I had a hard time deciding which punch I wanted to do, so I actually used three. Here are the three; the 2″ Circle, the 2 3/8″ Circle, and the Bough punch.

The Bough punch has a coordinating stamp set called Layering Leaves. This is where my sentiment came from.

To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 ½” piece of Basic White thick cardstock, score and fold at 4 ¼” to form your card base.
  • Adhere a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Masterfully Made DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (MLG).
  • Stamp your sentiment multiple times on a 3” x 4” piece of Bubble Bath cardstock using your Versamark ink pad. Quickly dust it with White embossing powder and set with your Heat Tool.

  • Sandwich a 3” x 4” piece of Basic White cardstock in the Timeworn Type embossing folder and run through your cut & emboss machine.
  • Adhere the sentiment piece to the embossed piece, diagonally, using MLG. Then, adhere it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Tear a couple of strips of the White Center Specialty paper, about 1 ¼” wide. Punch five large leaves from the strips and two small leaves in Pretty Peacock cardstock with the Bough punch, and  a piece of Vellum with the 2 3/8” Circle punch.
  • Adhere the leaves to the circle, in the upper-left corner and adhere it to the card.

  • Apply some Stampin’ SEAL to the top of the circle and wrap a 16” piece of silver Elegant Trim on top in an over-lapping circular pattern.
  • Stamp your sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Versamark ink. Quickly dust it with Silver embossing powder and set with your Heat Tool.
  • Punch the sentiment out with the 2” Circle punch and adhere to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Attach three Tinsel Gems as shown.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous card, Melissa! This card is perfectly done with all of the details. That designer paper is my favorite! Thanks for joining the blog hop this month!

  2. Very pretty card, Melissa. I love how you used the white center paper for the leaves. It gives the card a lot of texture. Enjoy your day!

  3. Wow Melissa. The blend of all of those elements on this card is unreal. They all play nicely in the sandbox together. Nothing is clashing, competing or hogging the show. My brain doesn’t work this way. I wish it did. An absolutely beautiful job!!

    • Thank you Dara for the kind words, I’m glad that you like the card. My goal was to get them to play nicely together, and I had a lot of fun pulling it off.😀
