Day Four: Punches and diecuts


Yvonne: I have quite a number of punches in my stash so I decided to see how many I could utilize to make a simple card. :)


I went with 5 punches...okay 4 punches and a corner rounder. :)


Here is a look at my card components before assembly.


Then I finished with some twine and a pearl for the centre of my butterfly. Now let's see how you utilize your punches and diecuts! :)





Julie: I totally decided to have fun with my punches and diecuts!! I remembered that I had a page of Amy Butler butterflies in my stash and decided to punch them out and just lay them wherever they landed on my page!!! And then I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to fill in some other blank spots on my page!! Just remember... you don't always have to use the newest and greatest out there -- grab something from your stash and go to town!!! :)



Amy:   I LOVE dies and punches.  The acorns are cut with a die and I use a corner rounder punch on the base panels.  They are actually altered magnets.

Flabbergasted by Julie's flutterbys. Ethereal somehow. Love that randomness.
One good tip with a square punch - use it to make a "banner" - put a strip of paper into one corner of the square and punch. Voila. Don't need a banner sentiment die.
