Debbie's interchangeable punch challenge closes on the 25th September, so you still have a couple of days left to get it finished and e-mailed in for your chance to win a fabulous Fiskars "True Love" stamp set.
If you missed it, here is the link to the challenge post.
I have started collecting the fabulous Interchangeable Punch Cartridges, so it was fun for me to play along and make some stepper cards to share.
The Interchangeable Punch is a wonderful innovation by Fiskars - the cartridges are easy to insert & remove, they stack neatly, hardly taking up any storage space at all AND they are beautiful designs too!!!
LOTS of other fabulous Fiskars punches were used to decorate these cards. The sparkly flowers are the small Flower lever punch, large butterfly is Flit On By LE squeeze punch, the small butterflies are the small Butterfly lever punch, two different birds including LE Flight and LE Bird Is The Word squeeze punches, with the one sitting in the Branching Out squeeze punch nest having its' wings clipped off using my Micro-Tip scissors. In case you're wondering how I made my punchouts sparkly, I ran them all through my Xyron Create-a-sticker, pressed firmly, ran around the edges with my Embossing Stylus, peeled off the clear layer then smothered them with glitter.
I hope you enjoyed the cards I have made using my Interchangeable Punch Cartridges and I look forward to seeing your projects being shared here soon ... don't forget, entries close 25th September.
What - you don't have an Interchangeable Punch yet???
Time for you to head on over to the Spotlight FaceBook page, print off your 25% off coupon and head down to your local Spotlight store with your coupon & VIP card and bag a bargain ... or two!!!
PS - Both cards were made using the Stepper Card Bases from Fundamentals (currently on sale at Spotlight in packs with expanding envelopes) and they stand a HUGE 8 1/4 inches tall!!! The alphas are my 1st ever pack of DIY Thickers - you peel off the top layer and smother it with glitter, then peel off each alpha and apply it to your project. We have three nieces with birthdays within ten days and I'm making them each a stepper card. You have now seen the 1st two. Sadly the alpha pack only has three p's, so I have improvised with the sentiments for each one - Happy Birthday, Celebrate and Party Girl, with Party Girl still in progress.
