Punch Pals again!


Does this layout look familiar?  It is this week’s Stamping 411 Sketch!  I made up two different cards with the same sketch and they look entirely different.  (See my original card HERE.)

While I had Punch Pals Stamp Set out, I decided to stamp up the little snowman in this set!  I used my Aqua Painter and Stampin’ Up! markers to watercolor him.  I just posted a How To guide on tips for using your Aqua Painter over on Stamping 411…check it out!


I started with a base card of Real Red.  I layered on Bermuda Bay cardstock and stamped the snowflake from Punch Pals randomly over the background in Bermuda Bay ink.  I wrapped the Real Red striped ribbon around the center of the card and adhered it in the back.  I stamped the Snowman from Punch Pals in Basic Black on Whisper White and colored him with my Aqua Painter and Stampin’ Up! markers.  That was layered on Real Red and then Basic Black cardstock.  I stamped the Snowflake Medallion three times.  Once in Basic Black on Real Red and punched with the Scallop Circle punch.  Once on Real Red and punched with the 1 1/4 circle punch and once with Bermuda Bay ink and punched out the center with 3/4 circle punch.  Each layer was popped up with Dimensionals.

I love the color combination…and the Snowman makes me happy!  It’s a fun sketch with a variety of ways you can use it!

Really a cute card, Connie. The snowman looks like he could jump right off the card!
His rosie cheeks just make him seem alive.
