What's your favourite retiring punch?
Sadly for me it will be the Bunny Builder Punch... I love the set this punch co-ordinates with Best Bunny - they have some super cute expressions. I'd look forward to seeing you create a card with a retiring punch and add it to our Facebook page using the link over on the right.I started in one direction and ended up in another! I found in my stash a Happy Birthday die which had been cut twice, once in Blushing Bride and once in Basic Gray, mounted together slightly offset then covered in Dazzling Diamonds, and I needed to use it. That meant I needed to alter the piece I had started with as my greeting no longer fitted in the space I'd intended it to go in.
I began with a piece of Twinkle Twinkle DSP and used another retiring punch - the 1 1/4" circle punch - to cut three circles. I stamped 3 bunnies in Soft Suede onto Whisper White cardstock, coloured their ears and chest with Stampin' Blends then punched them out with the matching punch. I adhered the bunnies in place and mounted them onto Coastal Cabana cardstock which was added to a base of thick Whisper White cardstock. I trimmed my Stampin' Dimensionals to add to the back of the diecut and placed it onto the front of the card.
It did make it a hard one to photograph but looks fab in real life.
That left me still looking at my original piece of Wood Textures DSP which I am super sad to see retire. It already had 3 circles punched out of it, so I created another card as above using Fresh Fig for the mat. The greeting is from Best Bunny - stamped in Soft Suede, punched out with the Darling Label punch, popped onto Stampin' Dimensionals with added Rose Metallic Thread and stuck to the card.
