Paper Crafting Blog Hop September All About Punches


Hello and welcome to our August Monthly Blog Hop!  We thank you for joining us for our monthly blog hop this month.  Our theme this month is All About Punches,  highlighting all the punches we have in our Annual and Mini Catalog.  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part this month to show you wonderful products and suites from our catalogs.  You may have joined me from Katie's blog and their project was wonderful.  

I have chosen to use the Tailored Tag punch from the Annual catalog for my punch of choice this month for my masculine birthday card. I feel this is such a versatile punch and can be used for so many sentiments and greetings in our catalogs. I used the stamp set Many Mates for this card. 

To start I punched out numerous pieces of a print of DSP from In Good Taste. You could use numerous patterns but I chose one piece of paper.  I punched way more than needed but wanted choices of patterns. I then laid them out on a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" starting in the middle and working out. I didn't adhere anything at this point, I just lined them up how I wanted. I left a thin border of the green showing between each one. Once happy, I then used Tombow liquid glue to adhere them, again working out from the middle.  I trimmed the excess of once all were glued down.

I took the mossy meadow layer and added it to a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Soft Suede.  I then adhered that to my card base of crumb cake which is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". I stamped the sentiment from Many Mates on Crumb Cake and punched it out with the punch as well. 

For my inside layer I used a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla and stamped my sentiment in Soft Suede. I took 3 more of my punched pieces of DSP and lined them on the bottom, and cut the excess off as well. And then adhered the layer to my card base.

I hope you have enjoyed hopping with us this month.  Below this you can click the image to go to Sandra's blog where another wonderful project awaits you!  Please join us next month as we feature all things fall in the two current catalogs.

  1. One of my fav punches Krissi and you have showcased it well, especially like the way you've done the inside of the card.

  2. Great idea for making geometric cards with Designer Paper. That punch makes it so easy.

  3. What a fun way to create a custom background!

  4. Wonderful design! I like that you carried the punched images inside. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Great idea foe a masculine card. I really like the inside that matches

  6. Great use of the punch - I like your layout - and especially how it looks with the woodgrain paper. TFS

  7. Krissi, this turned out awesome! I have always liked the Tailored Tag punch - I don't use it enough though. TFS

  8. However, if you are looking for the confidence to pass a drug test successfully, then Quick Luck brings you that luck. Its highly complex formula is the golden standard now that every brand is looking to match. For any queries, the Clear Choice customer support team readily makes themselves available through phone and email. They even provide a money-back guarantee on all products! => Visit the Official Website of Quick Luck for the Best Discount Brand Overview: Once again, Clear Choice provides a crowd-favorite with its Sub Solution Kit. Although an older version of Quick Luck, it continues to display high effectiveness in beating drug tests. Here is what you will find in the Sub Solution Synthetic Urine Kit: • 88 ml container • A vial of powdered urine • Temperature strip • 1 heat activator powder Pros: • One of the most reliable synthetic urine kits with a 17-year long track record • Undetectable biocide-free and toxins-free formula • It contains 13 chemical compounds with just the right amount of urea and uric acid • pH levels and specific gravity fall under the normal range • Heat activator powder provides a less-time consuming way to heat synthetic urine • Separate mixing container and urine vial are given to avoid cross-contamination Cons: • It does not come pre-mixed • There is no heating pad included in case the heat activator fails • Some may find the price to be a tad bit high Features: Unlike Quick Luck, Sub Solution is Clear Choice's powdered urine that needs to be mixed for use. It is an older product, but its concentration of urea, uric acid, and creatinine are on point. It contains all the 13 different chemicals that naturally occur in real human urine for normal pH levels and specific gravity. For the best results, mix it with distilled water, and you will witness that realistic frothing, look, and smell. (Now don’t just keep looking at it – you’ve got a test to pass!) As a top-quality powdered urine, it is easier to handle than organic urine. In certain areas, you might even need to disclose this information to future employers. Don’t forget to read up on legal repercussions, if any, in your country so you can be absolutely sure. Synthetic urine has been a necessity for quite a while now. From the time drug tests became a rigid tool, synthetic urine has been free flowing in the market. In all this time, companies have managed to perfect their formulas, so choosing the very best can be hard. Thankfully, we've managed to put together a list of the very best synthetic urine products and from that we have chosen both Test Clear and Quick Luck as the best ones so far.
