More Envelope Punch Board

Yes, ok, I admit it, I am addicted……. to my Envelope Punch Board!
I have had a few people asking for some basic instructions on how to use this fantastic tool, so I thought I would share with you a video made by Mary Fish, which explains the process very clearly and simply.  Thanks Mary.
Here it is:

And here is my card in the same size as the one in the video with matching lined envelope.  This time I have used standard cardstock to make my envelope (in Pumpkin Pie), and while it is a lot heavier than a standard envelope, it will still go through standard mail ok, and protect your wonderful handmade creation a lot better too!  Of course, you can also use patterned papers for the envelopes if you prefer.

I have used the Witches Brew Designer Series Paper (#132185) for this card.  Halloween is not something that we celebrate much here in Australia, but I loved the colours of these papers and thought they would be great for some masculine cards!  And the stamped image is again from the Love You More stamp set (#131853) available until the 27th January 2014.
So make sure you get your order in for these items before they go, by clicking here.  And feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if you have any questions.
Happy stamping!

Sweet Sorbet

Using more of the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper today, and of course my fabulous Envelope Punch Board, to create another cute gift set.

The card also features the Love You More stamp set (#131853 Clear, #131850 Wood), which is available during the “Whole Lot of Love” promotion until the 27th January 2014 or until sold out.  And while this set is a Valentine‘s set, I think this particular one has a whole lot of other uses! 🙂

And I have lined one of the standard white Stampin’ Up! envelopes with the papers to match the set.

This cute little pouch can be made in a number of different sizes using the same sized piece of patterned paper, just changing where the punches are made to create the different sizes and shapes.  It just uses a belly band around to keep the pouch closed, but is so quick and easy to make – perfect for those last minute gifts.


The idea came from a fellow demonstrator from the UK Michelle Last, you can see her blog and video on how to make the pouches here.  Thanks for sharing Michelle, love how simple and easy your instructions are.

Hope you are celebrating the holiday season with some crafting time too!
Happy stamping!
