Stamp and Punch

Hello Monday, and welcome!

Whether you use a die cut with coordinating stamp, use a paper punch on a background stamp, or stamp a pre-made diecut shape or alphabet sticker this week we want to see your projects that feature a punch or die cut with a stamp!

I needed a birthday card for  a young friend who loves owls, and I love Tim Holtz's crazy birds, so put the two together, and this is what you get!

I will admit, I am probably the last person to use die cuts, but I challenged myself to try it with this card. I used the thinlets set that goes with the birds, and I am glad I did! Wow, they really work well, and save a lot of fussy cutting time. Gives me more time to color!

What's fun with using the die cuts, is I can pop up a lot more of the bird parts. The Crazy Things accessories are so much fun to use to add more personality to these birds.

Stamp "happy birthday", add some bright yellow embroidery thread, layer it onto blue and lime green (his favorite color) and the card is ready to give to my young friend. I hope he likes it!

So, I wonder what you will stamp and punch this week? Won't you join us in the challenge? Be sure to check out all of the wonderful DT creations here, they amaze me with their ideas!

Time to get out your punches and die cuts and and join us in the fun!  A random winner is chosen every week to win a generous $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp!
