Darling Label Punch Box!

Stampin' Up! Darling Label Punch Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s card was created with the fun new Darling Label Punch Box! I’ve been excited to show this to you. It’s a cute tin filled with crafting must-haves! It includes the Darling Label 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, the Darling Label Punch, a clear stamp block, and 2 Mini Stampin’ Spots of ink!

Item No. 146855  $45

This stamp set and punch work together perfectly! The stamps cover most reasons for sending a card (happy birthday, thinking of you, thanks, etc.) Just stamp, punch, add to a card base and you’re done!

For my card I placed my punched label over a piece of Whisper White card stock embossed with the Lovely Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this embossed flower, it makes a nice background for the sweet thank you label.

You may wonder how I created the label with the flower and leaves protruding out. Actually it was easy! I stamped the label four times, three times out of Petal Pink card stock and once out of Lemon Lime Twist card stock I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. One Petal Pink image was punched with the Darling Label Punch, one image was used to fussy cut the sentient and set aside, and the flowers on the last of the Petal Pink images were colored with a Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker and then cut out with Paper Snips. The leaves on the Lemon Lime Twist image were also snipped with Paper Snips. I layered all the pieces together to create a three-dimensional label!

So, I bought this punch box just for myself 🙂 but it would also make a beautiful gift for any crafter, or any crafter-to-be! 

Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to hear what you think of this Punch Box ~ please leave me a comment and let me know!

The designer series paper is a lovely combination of flowers and ferns. In order to show you the paper I’ve made three notecards, each using a different one of the papers. They would sure make a lovely gift set for someone 🙂

Stampin' Up! Tropical Escape - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The colors used are Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce. They make a beautiful combination, don’t they? The flower and the little palm leaf were stamped and then cut out with coordinating dies. The “thank you” sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce.

Lemon Zest Thank You!

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest - prettypapercards - stampinupDon’t these citrus fruits look so refreshing? This is the first time I’ve played with the Lemon Zest Bundle and I love it! The Bundle consists of the stamp set and the coordinating Lemon Punch ~ a wonderful combination!

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest Thank You - Peggy Noe - stampinup

North San Diego County where I live is the perfect place for citrus trees to grow. We have lots of lemon and orange groves in this area. At my house we have one Meyer lemon tree in our backyard and it’s had some pretty blossoms on it. I’m hoping for a few nice lemons, just like the ones on this card!
