Pinking Hearts Corner Punch: fun tip

Hi All,

Here’s a quickie post to show you something fun I did the other day with Stampin’ Up’s new Pinking Hearts Corner Punch.   This punch was originally featured in the now expired Occasions mini but luckily it’s still available for order as it’s on the list Stampin Up released to demonstrators of Continuing Product.

Using the Pinking Hearts Corner Punch alone (click on the pic for a larger image)

AND

Combined with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch

The bottom of both pieces was achieved by taking a strip of cardstock and instead of placing the corners of the paper in the corner punch in the usual way I placed the corner punch end on along the strip of paper.   Makes a neat new kind of border don’t you think?

The Pretty in Pink piece (aren’t you glad that’s one of our continuing colors :D) was punched with only the corner punch.  The Whisper White piece (part of the new Neutral’s Collection) was first punched with the corner punch along one side and then the border punch on the opposite side then cut with my trimmer to a smaller size.

As you can see by the close ups I still need a little practice using this punch (though not bad for a first attempt – lol!)  but overall I like the Victorian look this kind of border has.  Amazing what a little punch can do.   And cut to the appropriate sizes I think the smaller pieces (like the white one) will make an interesting sentiment layer for a special card.

Stay tuned to see what I end up doing with these pieces.  Might be cute on a side step card don’t you think?

Hugs and blessings – Jean
