The supplies used plus one white pompom to stand in a for golf ball from the Assorted Pompoms pack and patterned paper from the Country Club package…paper snip blades were run along the garden green mat to give extra interest. I got a little crazy with the number of Stampin’ Write markers I used. I got ’em, may as well use ’em. I love how saturated the colors are when using these markers.

ICS Blog Hop Passion for Punches!

Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase our Passion for Punches! You may have arrived from Deb Naylor’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

My starting point was the strip of leftover Garden Impressions designer series paper. I highlighted the colors in the paper with the inks. Snippets of daffodil delight ribbon brighten the look and remind me of the sun.

The ruffled embossing folder used on the garden green cardstock adds a little interest. The Pretty Label punch fits the sentiment stamp perfectly even though it was not officially designed to do so. Take a look at your punches. They may fit other stamps in this way too.

All the supplies used plus the Big Shot machine…
