Stampin’ Up Saturday ~ Punches Galore!

I designed this little project to make in my card class a couple of weeks ago. It was only when I came to pack my supplies, that I realised just how many punches I had used. I love the way they all work together so well, when layered up like this. I chose some patterned paper and picked the ink and card colours to match.


The sides were cut using the Two Tags die and than a rectangle of card was scored and folded to complete the basic gift bag. A piece of paper glued around it and the layered embellishment added on the front. It would work on a scrap book page too. A narrow strip of card for the handle, glued inside and secured with brads.


The matching card is very similar to one I’ve shared before, with a few more layers and a slight change of colour scheme. Making use of that wonderful honeycomb effect embossing folder and the beautiful butterfly stamps and punches.

  • Two Tags Bigz die
  • Papillon Potpourri stamp set
  • Elegant and Bitty Butterfly punches
  • Honeycomb embossing folder
  • Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
  • Four Frames stamp set
  • Decorative Label punch
  • Large Oval punch
  • Scallop Oval punch

Why not take advantage of Sale-A-Bration to add to your own collection of punches? The Decorative Label with the Large and Scallop Oval would give you a qualifying purchase. Alternatively the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and two matching punches would also entitle you to pick a free gift from the leaflet.

I’ve decided that from next month I will have a separate blog for Stampin’ Up and my paper craft classes. There is much more that I want to share and I don’t feel comfortable trying to build my business on this blog. I want to continue posting here in the spirit in which I started Staring at the Sea.  For creativity and community.

Next week I’ll have another gift bag for you, using the other tag on the Two Tags die and of course a matching card. Hope to see you then.

PS A couple of people said they would be interested in a tutorial for the little box I shared a few weeks ago and I’m working on that. Also instructions for today’s gift bag and the one for next week. I’ll run them as a series throughout March.
