Punch Art Week of Power – Favourites & Tea

So much love in this post!  Starting with punch art .. I love my punch art … though I’ve come to realise that my punch art isn’t limited to just punches.  I also use quite a lot of ‘die cuts’ – created using framelits, thinlits & edgelits (and of course my trusty Big Shot).  Anything that creates a shape contributes to ‘punch art’.

The main punch art shape for this card uses the Curvy Keepsake Box Die to create a cute little mug – what a great idea and a versatile use of an already popular die.  Tea is a favourite of mine (have you noticed?), as is the Keepsake Box!  This punch art idea was found on another favourite – Pinterest and comes from Vicki Hayes (who is on the Artisan Design Team).  You can see it here.


I am also loving participating in challenges at the moment.  They are a deep well of inspiration & guidance to give you a start on a project or card.  This card was inspired by sketch #158 at Freshly Made Sketches and the colour combination/photo inspiration over at Just Add Ink #236 (two of my favourite weekly challenges).  What are your favourites of the moment?  I confess that my top loves change regularly.  It makes sense though – there’s so much to love!  Kelly x

  1. This is a gorgeous card, Kelly! I was impressed, too, when I saw Vicky’s use of the Curvy Keepsakes Box. Love the little tag hanging over the edge of the cup, and the white embossed background is a beautiful backdrop to your lovely main panel. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week. 🙂

  2. This is great Kelly, l’m with you, love being able to use my dies for other things..:0) Loving that little teabag tag too! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  3. This is lovely Kelly – fresh and elegant – just like a cup of tea should be 🙂 Using the tea bag tag for the sentiment is just the cutest touch. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. Very cute card – I like the boarder down the side and the cute way your have created the tag. Chantell JAI
