Just love this Sprinkles of Life Photopolymer Stamp Set and the co-ordinating Tree Builder Punch. Oh wait, there’s no tree on this card. It’s all about ice cream. Those little scoops of ice cream double for tree canopies in another life. I made two of this card, the second slightly different from the first. Can you spot the differences? I’ve also used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch. It’s just great for adding a bit of interest to the corners… Read more »

Most of you who know me, know I love owls so thought I’d have a go at making one of the new Square Pillow Box Framelits into an owl. What do you think? I did ink around the Rose Red Ovals which form the outer wings, however it hasn’t shown up in the photograph. It does also have a nose made from the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and Cajun Craze card. The eyes are punched with… Read more »

I’ve stamped the sentiment first and then punched it out using the Scallop Oval Punch…. Read more »
