What is your favourite crafting tool? I have to say that, without doubt, one of my favourites is our fantastic punches. Punches are so quick and easy to use. They’re easily stored and Punches, Dies and Paper can really step up your crafting. Today you can see how I use 3 lovely little cards to illustrate how you can enjoy the most basic cardmaking when you’ve little time, and how to really step it up when you have the time and the right materials. I must admit, that was the big draw that Stampin’ Up! had on me. Using this catalogue, it’s is so easy to have the correct tools and coordinating materials to hand as you know where and how to get them easily.
Are you like me, with a long To Do list and not enough time?
Do you just need that little break from the hassles of the day?
Most importantly, you should schedule time out of a busy day, just for you! Believe me, when you do this you are consequently much happier, less frazzled and more productive. My Stampin’ Up! catalogue has all the answers (and the inspiration to get started) therefore it saves you time and effort. 🙂
So with that in mind, just sit down for 30 minutes and make the first of our gorgeous little cards. This is the most basic and simple card while it is no less lovely. ‘Less is More’ right? 😉 And using the coordinated punch makes it that much quicker to complete.
Using Punches, Dies and Paper:
Step It Up A Little
However if you want to step it up a little, just add a little die cut. It’s basically the same card with a little more detail. So easy! Don’t forget the Bling!
Step It Up A Lot:
And if you’ve got an extra couple of minutes, add in a little extra WOW with some gorgeous Designer Series Paper! This paper comes in 12″ x 12″ sheets therefore is suitable for making gift bags and boxes. Besides that, it is double sided and you get 2 sheets of each pattern so you get the most out of all the patterns you love most!
And ….. There’s an Exclusive Bonus Project:
While you’re enjoying these 3 cards, I have made a fourth card that is super gorgeous but that is exclusive to my Newsletter Subscribers. Rather than miss out, make sure and sign up to my Newsletter now to receive news on that fourth project. It’s so easy to sign up to get hints, tips and inspiration directly to your inbox.
