Re-Return of ShowCase Monday

Hello everyone!

Hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. I have been very busy stamping away and as I did I decided that I should make a couple of cards for Showcase Monday. This time around I am not showcasing stamps but actually punches!

If you know me you know I have a thing for circles be it stamped dots,circle cards and of course my circle punches.

Here is my first card I actually didn't even stamp I used designer paper from the "Pink Flamingo" collection. I used my 1 1/4 circle punch to get 4 circles then my 1 3/8 punch to get my Whisper White circles. Used a yumo Chocolate Chip card base and pulled out my Scrap folder and thats where I got my Tangerine Tango piece of cardstock and matted that one Whisper White and to add a little extra punch I used some Kraft Taffeta Ribbon.

I really like this sketch of this card because it can be used for any occasion and I think its really a wonderful way to create something pretty with little material and you can use your scraps up too.

Now on to my 2nd card today. This one I did use a stamp set BUT actually I don't have this set but one of my Stampin'addict (coolest site EVER) sisters who RAK'd had sent me some of the cute little images from Forest Friends that is now available from the Occasion Mini. (working on some other cards WAIT till you see SOOO CUTE! lol) I had to use that so sweet little owl for a card.

Another thing I love is Kraft Cardstock I CAN NOT get enough.I love how you can dress it up dress it down what ever you want you can get with Kraft cardstock. Here I used both my circle punches (1 1/4,1 3/8) but I also used my scallop punch to add the last touch for the sweet owl. I pierced the flower and added my little image used Baja Breeze and paper pierced it and matted it on Chocolate Chip. Then using Kiwi Kiss I created the little border for the bottom of the card with my scallop border punch. To bring together the Kraft and Kiwi Kiss cardstock I used my Satin Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla ribbon. Let me tell you to get that little bow just so well it took a while! but I do love how it turned out.

Well I hope you enjoyed my little creations showcasing punches and hope you will take out your punches and make your own beautiful cards. I shall be back Wednesday with my Diva Challenge card. Don't forget about the blog candy I'm offering I am actually looking to see if I find more stuff to add!
