Can you believe you can make these ten totally different cards with just the Postage Stamp Punch?
Let’s start with just using one punch. This cute snowman from the Snowman Magic Bundle comes with sunglasses and lots of other accessories – so a well dressed snowman for any occasion. Layering it on the mesh background made with the Chic Dies (which coordinates with the Season of Chic Stamp Set) keeps the focus on this single punch.
This Spotlighting technique makes a card really stand out. This Adventurous Journey stamp set is perfect for masculine cards and for any outdoor enthusiasts.
To make the card, stamp a second image on a scrap piece of cardstock and punch out the part you want to highlight. Color just that postage stamp cut out and attach it to the card front with dimensionals.
Now – for Two Punched Postage Stamps on a page.
An easy way to highlight one of the punches is to stamp your image on one, then tuck a second one cut out with Designer Series Paper just behind it.
Now to Three Punched Postage Stamps!
Lining up three in a row on a 2-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ piece of cardstock makes an easy focal point for a card.
The patterned papers on this card are from the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper (one of the free choices with a $100 order in July and August).
Laying three punches pieces on a white card base creates a lovely background for adding a die like this Splendid Stems Die. The sentiment is from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set and when you bundle these two items, you save 10%.
This dramatic background paper is from the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper.
Adding rectangles cut from coordinating cardstock just a bit bigger than the postage punch creates a different look.
Both the houses and the the background paper are from the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper (one of the free choices with a $50 order in July and August).
Here the punch was used six times – three for the stamped images and three for the cardstock pieces put behind them. Since they are the same size, they are placed at an angle and you see the edging on two sides.
On to Four Punched Postage Stamps!
Four is an easy number to work with. Use any size paper and arrange the punches along the edges.
This is the same card design – just turned on its side.
Instead of lining up the postage stamp pieces the same direction, try this. Turn each piece so two of the rectangles are vertical and two are horizontal. On this card, they are also placed closer together.
Lots of Punched Postage Stamps!
There is no limit to what you can create by arranged a bunch of these pieces in different ways on your cards. Here is one way.
This is the Postage Stamp Punch that was used on all of these cards!
