Simple Stems & Scalloped Tag Punch

February 3rd, 2014


I had the honor to be invited to a gueststar of Dawn Olchefske for the month of February. I am still at awe for receiving such an invitation. Today's project is the first one I am sharing and there will be 3 more to follow. Whenever a new catalog comes out it is always hard to decide what to get first, as I love everything. The Simple Stems, Scalloped Tag Punch, and Peaceful Petals are all items from the new Occasions Catalog that are now available for you to purchase. I love punches that can be used in a different way and the Scalloped Tag Punch gave me the chance to try it in a bit of unusual way. The video tutorial is below and you will see how easy it was to put this card together. Stop by my store, grab your punch and give it a try. You will love it.

Happy Stamping!

  1. This card is just beautiful!

  2. great job!! I enjoyed your video very much and I look forward to others in the future! What were the two different colors which you used on the two cards--the ink with which to stamp the flower? Thank you again.

  3. Miriam, I saw your card made here with the 'scalloped tag punch', that I recently purchased, somewhere out there in the blogesphere and couldn't find it again. I'm so happy your card has been shared so I can make it following the steps in your video. You did a great job! And now I'm off to pick out the colors I want to use for my card and I'll be back to watch it again. Just a little side note ... I love the color of your nail polish!
