Punch Art Blog Hop

I am in several Yahoo groups for stamping and scrapbooking. It is a great way to share and meet other people who are as obsessed as I am! I recently joined one that is for Stampin' Up demonstrators who love punch art. We are having a blog hop today featuring (of course) Punch Art!

If you logged in earlier today and wondered what was up with my post, I put the names and links in yesterday but had a meeting and I was going to finish when I got home but the internet was out then and still out now. I'm sitting in the Chick-Fil-A parking lot using their wi-fi! I made a magnolia using the Ornament Punch that I wanted to share with you today. I put it on one of the Fancy Favor dies and it is a little large for that, I'll have to find something larger or maybe one of the explosion boxes would look great with this flower on top.

I used 18 or 19 punches, punched from glossy white cardstock for this flower. I sponged the edges of each with Pretty in Pink ink and arranged them around a 1 3/4 inch circle punch. It takes a while to ink them all but it goes together pretty fast after that. Rhea Anderson came up with this great idea but I saw it on another blog and copied it from there. If you want the directions, go to Rhea's blog and look on the right toolbar.

Very pretty example of these flowers. Wish I could these - it seems to be in the "can't make a pie shell" category! :) I just signed up to follow your blog. Thanks for blessing my day. :)
