Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Does the title Pleased as Punch have you intrigued? Well, of course I am pleased as punch that my private class last night with a group of newbies was such a success, but this post is about some pretty awesome paper. The reason it is called Pleased as Punch is that it coordinates with four, yes four! different punches and stamp sets. I love that! It is also fresh and bright and oozes springtime, which is just what we are starting to love for at the end of February.
Pleased as Punch
Yesterday I did a short video showing you all the coordination that is possible with this beautiful Pleased as Punch paper. You can see it here if you missed it on my Facebook page The Pampered Stamper. This paper coordinates with the following bundles:
- Timeless Tulips
- Under My Umbrella
- Thoughtful Blooms (a free saleabration offering)
Timeless Tulips Card
Here is my first card (no time to make the rest yet) that you can also make at coffee and a card on Tuesday, or you can watch me make it during my Facebook live Tuesday night. This is NOT a Jackie original. I totally cased this beauty from Lynn Dunn, and you can see her card and lots of other great ones here. I rarely case cards for my blog but this one was perfect for my needs and sometimes life happens.
All the sentiments come from Timeless Tulips and I love them all. Great font and also perfect for the banners that I think work so well on so many cards. Sentiments were stamped in pear pizzazz. The tulips and the leaves are simply punched out of the paper. I think the polka dot tulle ribbon is an ideal match for this card, it reminds me of spring and pretty girls’ dresses and hair bows. Nostalgia!
Stitched Nested Labels
I figured I better put the name of those great dies in big letters so you don’t miss it! That is what I used for the background behind these tulips. This is a fantastic product that I think every stamper should own. If you want to see another great use for these dies, check out this popular blog post for a very unique card.
Did you know that you can do a search on my blog? If you want to see more cards that I have made with the stitched nested labels, just type it in the search box and hit enter. What a great feature to help you in your creativity.
Happy Mail Contest
You might get sick of me, but I am going to keep asking for cards for Gerard! The last happy mail contest was so much fun and I am even more excited about this one, because it will be such a surprise for him. There is something in it for you too of course. Everyone who sends him a card will get a chance to win a masculine stamp set of your choice out of the mini catalog. I will also blog about your card and do a video of Gerard opening all of them. How much fun is that?
Here’s the address: Gerard van der Sar, c/o Jackie Bultje 81 Delaware Avenue, Chatham, Ontario N7L 2W3.
