Playing with my Punch Pals

I knew when I first saw this set in the new catalog I had to have it! Sad part is I haven't had much time to play with it yet...but so far I do know it is very versatile and fun to use. I love the snowman and penguin images the best. I made this card using the same colors and some left over sparkley paper I created after making my first punch pal card seen here. (The description of how I created the background with the Emboss Resist technique is also described in the post.) I saw a super cute card on SCS and that inspired the layout I used here. I thought it was so cute how she cut out the snowmans head and had it popped up in the middle of the "tis the season" stamp, so I just had to try that too.

Unfortunately the colors are a bit off because I photographed the card rather than scanning it. I had hoped the photo would show more of the sparkle from Irridescent Ice embossing powder I used for the background on the main image. I think this color combo is a bit different than what you would traditionally think of for Christmas colors, but I like it.

Stamps: Punch Pals, Bold Snowflakes Jumbo wheel
Card stock: Sage Shadow, Lovely Lilac, Bashful Blue & Glossy White
Ink: Black Stazon, White Craft, Lovely Lilac, VersaMark, various to watercolor
Accessories: Silver eyelets, Blue gingham ribbon, Vintage brads, Ticket Corner, Scallop, 1-3/8", 3/4", 1/2" circle punches, Aqua painter

Have a great day!
