Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Playing with New Punches

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project, I reached for some of my new punches from the Annual Catalogue.

Playing with New Punches. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

This project uses a combination of Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Whisper White. As it uses a few items several times, the attendees were able to combine their pieces in lots of different ways.

The pretty background is from the Ornate Floral Embossing folder, it gives a lovely textured design. For items with texture, it’s best to use Tear & Tape to attach them, to avoid using pressure and crushing the pattern.

Using cardstock shaped at the top with the new Fancy Tag Topper Punch, I put my Pool Party piece in front. A length of the new Sheer Pool Party Ribbon is looped through both shapes. Pictures of this ribbon don’t do it justice, it’s a ribbon you need to see and feel to really appreciate.

On top of my tags, a shape from the Label Me Lovely Punch is added. I’ve put the straight edges of the shape against the straight edges of my tag.

The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch provides the two strips across the tags. One cut in half and popped behind the first tag, overhanging the edges as long as needed, with the second stuck on top.

Two Crushed Curry and one Whisper White flower are cut from the Small Bloom Punch. This is another fab new punch that carried over from this year’s SAB offering.

For the centre of the white flower, one of the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots is added.

Finally, the tags are lifted from the page using Dimensionals.
