Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest, dimension, and color to your cards, tags, and scrapbook pages. You can glue punched shapes directly onto your projects or layer a sheet of card stock that has been punched over a coordinating card stock for a reverse effect. Our Modern Label punch coordinates with our Favorite Things and I Heart Lists stamp sets. ■ Adds interest to scrapbook pages and cards ■ Has an easy-to-use thumb lever

This is a cute card with some interesting details. It has a neat texture provided by the Big Shot and Texturz Plates Kit #4. I don't have that one...but I may have to get it! I like how it was punched on one side for the ribbon and sentiment...I think I may give that a try on a card...but I may go a step further and punch on both sides for the ribbon. The color combo was derived from the Designer Series Background paper, Tall Tales. The colors are; Soft Suede, So Saffron, Brilliant Blue, and Old Olive. This card was stamped by fellow demo Amy Jorden.

This was another make & take from my open house. Circle Circus is a very universal set. It is great for focal points on a card such as this; or, it comes in handy for borders or backgrounds! I love the variety of the circle styles. This layout is very simple...and makes a very cheerful card. The color combo is Bermuda Bay with Basic Black. Lots of punches used with this layout! The Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge, and 2 Circle punches! I also used the SU! Perfect Details Texturz Plate. I reallly like this design paired with the FYI stamp set and plan to make up a few! I'll use several of our new In Colors with this design! It will be pretty in Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry!

I love this new hostess set! I think I am addicted to florals! This beautiful card was stamped by Betsy Glasco. She used Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive for her color combo. She used glitter and crystal effects to highlight the berries and the flower which really adds to the prettiness of the card.

This pretty card was stamped by Jan Waters. She used the new Hostess Set, Wings of Friendship for her swap. The main color, Rich Razzleberry...lives up to its name. It is a deep, rich color. I love it! Small details really make this card. The scallop oval punch in the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper as a frame for the sentiment is a very nice touch. She also highlighted different areas of the image with the Crushed Curry marker which realy pulls it together with the designer series paper. Nice job, Jan!

Since I chose not to go to convention this year (I had withdrawals after going for 10 years in a row! It's a terrible addiction...) I participated in a new catalog swap via snail mail. The swaps came today...so I had an exciting day! I am going to share a few of them with you before my open house...because I am so busy getting ready for it (don't forget...it is this Saturday!) I just don't have the time to stamp! I really liked this one (I am partial to quick, easy cards that are pretty). It used the new Medallion stamp and new In Colors; Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. This card was stamped for the swap by fellow demo
