I've gone punch crazy...

I'm loving the new Three for You punch kit :). As promised I've been making a bunch of cards to share with you. Although I have to apologize... this is going to be a long post!

First off here is the kit in all of its glory including the free Love Notes. It is lovely, just lovely. As a bonus... the stamps are already die-cut, which means that you do not have to trim them.

The first card is a simple square card (4.25" x 4.25") that utilizes the punch kit and several other punches (love the scallop circle).

Supplies used: Three for You Punch Kit; Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Apricot Appeal and Barely Banana cardstock; Basic Black ink pad; Porcelain Prints designer series paper; scallop circle punch; 1" circle punch; Paper Piercer and Mat Pack; Stampin' dimensionals; Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.

The second card has a more contemporary feel to it... I keep thinking of Ikea when I look at it. Not my usual style but I like it.

The third and final card that I made uses more of the Porcelain Prints designer paper (trying not to hoard the paper!) and some Blue Bayou double-stitched ribbon. Just a note... I let the flowers wander a bit instead of centering them on the circles.

And now for some other news... all stamp sets in the Holiday mini catalog (available September 1st) will be die-cut just like the Three for You Punch Kit. I'm thrilled by this! It definitely speeds up the process of putting your stamp sets together, which means more time for stamping. Woo hoo!

If you are a visual person and are having a difficult time picturing die-cut stamps, here's a picture just for you!

It's also a sneak peek at one of the Holiday Mini stamp sets: Autumn Harvest.

Later gators... and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
