TSTR - Baby It's Cold Outside!!!

I recently got a new punch from The Stamp Pad...the little boutique where I teach card making classes. I love border punches but I don't normally use "shaped" punches because they take up to much space in my crafty area (other than circles & squares) but I fell in love with it the second I saw it and couldn't wait to put it to use!

This week The Shabby Tea Room challenge is PERFECT for my darling little punch :)
Challenge rules: use white, green, silver and a red bow

With my darling new little punch and the most perfectly matching image from Bugaboo, I easily re-created this little scene :)

I wanted the image and swag to take center stage so I decided to go with white on white. I scored the card base to ad texture and not only popped up the square panel but also popped up the Bugaboo image that I punched out using a scallop circle punch. My new little leafy sprig punch made the perfect little holiday greenery swag when I added several under the little red bow.

Have you ever browsed the Bugaboo web site? They have darling images for everything and are soooo easy to use. The image downloads directly into "my pictures" on my computer and I print it out (I put normal white cardstock in my printers paper tray) in whatever size I want just like I'd do with a regular picture. You color the image with markers or pencils just as you would a stamped image...easy peasy!!


  1. Tina this is absolutely adorable!! I have a little leafy sprig punch too, aren't they the sweetest little wispy things!! Great job on this one girl ;)

  2. Tina I love your gorgeous card! I love the scored background, the image and the greenery you added with the bow! :)
