Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Punch It Out

Challenge 46 for Shopping Our Stash is to punch it out! You had to use at least two punched elements on project.  I chose to use a Martha Stewart Flower Punch called “Embossed Pop-Up Flower” that I had in my stash that I had never used.  As soon as this challenge was announced I had an idea what I was going to do with the punch and I punched 3 flowers in a series. .  I also had a Squeeze Punch called “M-Flower” that I decided to use in the center of the larger punch flower.   I added a Hero Art sentiment, buttons and large mauve staples to complete the card. 
Now back to my craft room to stamp some more but I will first clean a spot to be able to work.   



  1. Judy, I love this card! The double punched flowers and then setting them back into the negative space - brilliant! So happy you joined us this week at Shopping Our Stash!

  2. Very classy, elegant card - thanks for sharing for the 'punch it out' challenge at Shopping our stash, Hazel, Guest Designer x

  3. You know, I've never used one of those embossed pop-up punches - they look like work, especially getting them straight. I'll just admire from afar, thankyouverymuch. :)
