Something New and Fun

A couple of stamp camps back, we learned a new technique, using the small tag punch and a fold that eventually became a really unique flower. Since I recently received the small punch, I have been using different colors and playing with them to come up with some different looks. This is one of them. I used the new designer paper and the colors of almost amethyst and apricot appeal. I love those colors together. I did a bit of sponging around the whisper white paper, and used the garden green stampin' write marker to make the stem. I love the bling in the center of the flower (though it is a bit hard to see in the pic). I think it gives it a "whimsy" feel. :-)

Simple and Quick

I love the new Trio Flower Punch. I recently ordered and received the "Three For You Punch Box" set from Stampin' Up. How could I resist with the special going on this month that includes the notecards. It seems as if the projects are limitless with this set. Already we have done some fun stuff at Stamp Camp with it, and this next week I am attending a camp doing 7 different projects with just this set! I can't wait! I have seen so many creative ideas including ideas for Fall and Christmas. I hope you enjoy the attached creation.
