ICS Blog Hop Punch Me Out


Hello friends and welcome to our July Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop!  Our theme is "Punch Me Out" to feature fun ways to use our Stampin' Up! punches.

Layering different punches is one of my go-to design elements.  My card shows that the Story Label punch is a super option to frame behind the Tailored Tag label punch.  The designs of each shape are striking and add textural interest.

I love layered punches! This card was quick and fun to make.  The background stamp images are from the Verdant Garden stamp set, and the sentiment is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  My project supplies are listed at the end of this post so you can make this at home!
