At Stampin’ Up! we are known for how our products coordinate, thus making the creative process easy! All of the punches that are featured today have coordinating stamp sets.

For my first project, I used the Label Love Stamp Set that coordinates with the Artisan Label Punch, but I wanted a polka-dotted butterfly—so I used a stamp from the Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set with my Bitty Butterfly Punch.

The second project I made used another stamp from the Six-Sided Sampler and the Hexagon Punch.

I like to use the negative space left from a punch to cut out border pieces, which is what I did for this card.

It may be hard to recognize the Pansy Punch on this last project, but it was used!

I spritzed sheets of Creped Filter Paper with Calypso Coral ink, then punched out the pansies using the Pansy Punch.

I layered several pansies and attached them using a brad in the center; then I bunched the layers to create a fluffy, 3D flower.

If you don’t own these punches yet, I hope today’s projects inspired you and helped you see why you need to have them as part of your collection!
