Punches - Day 2 (PoW)

Hi all,

Sorry this is a bit late, but I had a very long and busy day....

Plus my brain isnt functioning right at the moment, I've been trying to think up some new ideas, as would you believe I have just submitted 2 workshops using punches and I dont want to give away any of those ideas .. just yet.

So yesterday if you recall, I used bright vivid colours in my card....

Well today I have gone for pastel tone and used the 3 sized Circle punches (9940) (small, medium and whale) and I also used the small Retro Flower Punch (PSP92C). The card is 3d with 2 of the circles having magic mount.

Quick Craft Tip - using punches -
As a first step in reviving a blunt punch I would recommend punching through normal kitchen tinfoil, always try this first, and do it several times if necessary.

If this is not sufficient then try punching through very fine sandpaper. It is important it is very fine as larger pieces of grit will scratch the cutting mechanisms rather than sharpen them.

Don't forget to leave your comments to win.... and check out what the other creative Blog War participants have done.

Happy Stamping...
