Yesterday was my Art of Punch Art Class.  The first card is basically a color update of the Simple Tulip Vase I posted in April.  It was requested for the class, so I just did a little update on it.  Since I used the new Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder that will be available beginning July 1, I thought you might like a sneak peek!  Over the next couple of days, I will post the other two cards we made at the class.  Enjoy!

  • Stamp Sets – Teeny Tiny Wishes (#115370, $36.95)
  • Card stock – Whisper White, Ballet Blue, Almost Amethyst, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst Patterns DSP (retired)
  • Ink –  Ballet Blue, Pretty in Pink Classic
  • Punches – Extra Large Two-Step Bird (#117191, $15.95), Ornament (#116794, $15.95), Wide Oval (#112082, $15.95), Word Window (#105090, $15.95), Modern Label (#116630, $15.95)
  • Accessories – Stampin' Dimensionals, Rich Regal Brads, 2-way glue pen
  • Tools – Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Folder (#120175, $7.95 preview from new 2010-2011 catalog) 
Items in red are retiring at the end of the month, June 30, 2010 or while supplies last for all but stamps.

For the tulips, I used the versatile Two-Step Bird Punch.  Each flower uses 2 or 3 of the bird wings.  For the stems, I used the Wide Oval to cut "on-the-edge" and "above and around" as in other punch tutorials posted here.  The vase is the Ornament Punch with the bottom snipped off.  Enjoy!
