This month's Stamp Class was all about punch art. Lots and LOTS of punches!
The banana split made us all want to go out for ice cream! The red rhinestone made the perfect cherry on top.
The bride and broom hearts were simple, simple, simple, but made quite an impact. We used the Scallop Heart of Heart Embosslit as the base with black and white large hearts on top. And don't forget the bow tie and pearls!
The ornament punch can be used for many things OTHER than an ornament. We made bright orange fish using that punch as well as the 5 petal punch and the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart XL punch. The seaweed was made using the snowflake punch and the fish eyes are rhinestones for an added "sparkle".
Everyone loved the bunny. The ornament punch was used for his head, large and small ovals for his ears and feet, 3/4" circles for the bottom of his feet and his hands, 1/4" punch for his toes, the small heart form his nose. The carrot was modified from one of the orange pieces from the fish fins, and here I used one of the flowers from the Boho Blossom punch. But one of the stampers came up with the clever idea of using the tip of the snowflake punch for the leaves on the carrot - it looked great!
This silly monkey had lots of pieces, but once he was put together, he's pretty cute. We used various circle and oval punches for his body, and the word window punch for his arms and legs.
And the big round hippo used round and oval punches as well as the word window and modern label punch. Love his "google" eyes!
