Stampin' Up! Class - Punch Bunch

Afternoon all,

Hope you're enjoying the weekend and are here to see what my ladies made in today's class. We had a great time playing with two of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that you can earn for each £45 you spend before p&p. I love Punch Bunch, this was the first Sale-A-Bration stamp set I couldn't wait to get! It has an assortment of stamps for most occasions and it co-ordinates with a number of punches so it's handy when making any project as it cuts the time down of having to cut by hand. Did you notice that even the owl stamp will have a matching punch in the Mini Catalogue, due out in a couple of months time? How exciting is that!

So, here are the two cards the ladies made today, both using Punch Bunch stamp set with So Happy For You for one of the sentiments:

Punch Bunch - Suspension Baby Card

I originally took the idea of the card layout from Beth, and from here, created a suspension card. The punched images suspended in the top right hand corner are a babygro on one side and baby booties on the other side. As you turn the circles you'll see the two different images. Hope the pictures capture the effect.

Bye for now,



  1. Fab projects, Alex! I love the suspension card especially - adds a really cool focal point!

  2. Great cards - love the thanks card! Fabulous colours on both!

  3. Love these. I've borrowed the Bundle of Love from my upline so I think I'll have to have a go at something similar.
