Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Postage Stamp Punched Pieces in Purple

For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I revisited another card from my Abstract/Shapes Papercrafting Class.

This time, it was Postage Stamp punched pieces in purples shades, rather than blues.

The Postage Stamp Punch is a fabulous new tool from the Mini Catalogue.

Using Thick Whisper White for the basecard allows each of the colours to shine.

My top tip for projects like this is to stick the shapes onto another piece. This stops the needs for being really accurate with your cutting and sticking.

All that’s needed is to arrange the pieces in a pattern, leaving a small gap between each one. Any overhang is then cut off before sticking this piece onto the basecard.Postage Stamp. Project Designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

My sentiment is from the Forever Fern Stamp Set and is cut out using the Postage Stamp Punch. As the notches can be lined up, it’s fairly easy to cut the shape smaller than the original shape.

A loop of Metallic-Edge Ribbon is then stuck to the project, before the sentiment is added using some Mini Dimensionals.

This design is really quick and easy to make. You could even make a batch and add a relevant sentiment when it is time to send.

Why not join me at one of my online classes. I’d love to ‘see’ you there. Head to my Class Timetable for full details.

Happy crafting
