Lots of Stampin' Up! Punches Up for Grabs

I have lots and lots
of punches to get rid of
so I can invest in the newly designed Stampin' Up!
punches being released July 1 in the
2010-11 Idea Book and Catalog.
The punches I am offering are the same images
as the newly designed punches.
As a demonstrator, it is wise for me to
always show (whenever possible)
the current merchandise in the current catalog.
It's less confusing for my clients.
When they see me use the products on the pages
of the catalog, they know exactly what they are investing in.
The cards in this post feature the
Photo Corners Punch.
This punch is one that I have available for resale.
In the 2010-11 catalog, this punch will sell for $16.95.
I am asking just $12 for my "whale-style" punch.
Isn't the little house shown above just the cutest?!
As you can see, I used the photo corner
for the house's roof.  Cute, huh?!
The stamp set used to compliment this card is
"Absolutely Fabulous."
This is quite possibly one of my favorite cards to create!
Don't you just love this little spider?!
I love watching the spiders in the fall time.
(I know.  I know... that's a bit cooky.)
I just think the way they work so hard
spinning their webs is facinating.
And shine a flashlight on their webs... gorgeous!
The spiders legs were created with the
Photo Corners Punch.
I used the new Extra Large Scallop Circle punch for its body.
Here is a fun fun tip...
Punch two of the scallop circles and encase a
Peppermint Patty between them.
Add the legs and voila!  Fast and fun little fall treats!
I used the Boho Blossoms Punch
for the spiders eyes.
The card background was embossed with the
Backgrounds #1 Texturz Plates.
And the "eeks" were stamped with the
"Calendar Alphabet and Numbers."
The pointed bottom trim of this card was created by using the
Photo Corners Punch.
(See tutorial as follows...)
It is so easy to create this pointed trim!

1. Begin by using an entire sheet of 8-1/2" x 11".
From this sheet, you can create two pointed trimmed cards.

2. Feed only HALF of the punch
onto the 11" side of the card stock.

3. Line up punch directly next to
the previously punched area and punch again.
Continue punching this way
until you have run out of room to punch.

4. Trim off the extra piece between each point.

You should end up with an even amount of punches
so that if you cut your card stock
down the center (at 5-1/2",) you will have
two cards with the same number of points.
You can preorder my
gently loved punches by emailing me
My punches will be released to you on July 1st
when the 2010-11 Idea Book and Catalog become active.
