Creative Card Crew - Punch It!

It's time for another fortnightly challenge @ Creative Card Crew!  "Punch It" is always a fun theme, as so many of us use one type of punch or another with every card we make!   There is a wonderful prize up for grabs this time too, Fred She Said is sponsoring for the next two weeks!!!

Stamps: Fred She Said (pumpkin bouquet)
sentiment - SU! so many sayings set
Papers: SU! cs, K&Co dp
Ink: Copic/Prisma markers
Other: Nesties, reg. hole punch, crop-a-dile punch,
dyed ribbon from Moe Joe Designs.

  • I used my regular handheld hole punch to punch around my scallop circle nestie die cut for a fun new look
  • The small orange dots were punched with a crop -a- dile.  I put a drop of SU! crystal effects on each for a 'faux' brad look...they look a bit more 3D IRL.
  • The fabulous dyed seam binding ribbon is from Mary Duffek of Moe Joe Designs...she has an Etsy store with delicious little affordable goodies!!  yum!  
 The rest of the Crew has some gorgeous inspiration to share...
