Hello and welcome to the blog hop this week CASEing a PUNCH project.
It's so nice to be able to participate again, squeezing some craft time into our busy lives can be a real challenge, so I've really enjoyed this opportunity.
Who doesn't love a punch- they are fast, versatile, flexible, portable, durable and affordable. I'm in love with the Pine Tree Punch and have been preparing projects for next week's fundraiser as the punch is part of the kit.
Today I am CASEing one of the tags on page 12 using the Brightly Gleaming DSP and very little stamping.
If you look closely at the tag on page 12 you can see the stitching- instantly knew I had to try this!
My tags are 3 punched trees randomly selected and stitched to a vanilla strip- I do 3 at a time on a 12" strip 2" wide then trim them down to 4" before punching the tag top. I added a second plain tag behind to be able to write the message.
A little piece of twine and a copper star and you're done.
Definite Wow factor and super easy.
I have used a mix of star embellishments for the tree tops. Of course I love the new copper stars but I still have quite a few enamel shapes which are a bit smaller but still lovely.
I think I've found this year's tag!
I also CASED myself from a project I made a few years ago and I have another home decor project using the tags but I'll share that after my workshop next weekend.
Don't forget we love to see what you create too using the catalogue as inspiration for your project - There's lots of samples of cards using punched shapes. Which one inspires you? Take a photo and share it with us on our Facebook Page.Shannon and Next on the blog hop this week is Julia and her gorgeous 3D card - also using the tree punch. Love all the ideas that I can share for inspiration in this group.
I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
