Gettin' Punchy, Squared with Pop Culture and Renaissance References

More punches.

More, more, more. How do you like it? How do you like it? More, more, more....

Wow. That is just...sad.

But the card isn't sad at all.

Nope. It's merry.

I have a LOT of square and circle punches...including scalloped squares and circles. They take up a lot of space. But unlike my friend Leslie who got rid of her punches (and has a serious addiction to collection of dies), I'm keeping them. For me, they're worth the space.

Today's card offered a chance to use three square punches and some of the baker's twine that I had to have, but now I know not how I shall use it.

The end of that sentence sounds like Shakespeare.

To be, or not to be...that is a really lousy question. To stamp, or not to stamp...that's a no brainer.

May your Labor Day weekend be inky. And safe. And free of Mommy ADD.

stamps: Hero Arts
ink: SU real red
paper: Papertrey white and kraft
accessories: baker's twine (Papertrey), dimensionals, square punches


  1. Very cute card. I love red and white for Christmas.

    I'd never get rid of my punches. Yes, they take up a lot of space. But I can get out a punch, punch the shape, and put the punch away in the time it takes me to find a die. AND if I need multiples of the same shape, in a race against a die machine, rolling a single die through multiple times, my punch would win hands down. I like the effort of making a card to be clean, simple and f.a.s.t. I find dealing with dies too faffy for my slightly OCD personality.

    While I love my dies and own several of them I'd choose a punch over a die almost any day. I find myself redoing a card design just to avoid having to get out a die. And this in spite of the fact that my dies, machine, etc are all at the tip of my fingers.

    I find myself using my red and white bakers twine all the time. Especially at Christmas and Valentines day. Almost any card can handle some twine wrapped around it, tied in a knot or bow without being too fussy or over done.

  2. Your card is such fun. The Kraft and baker's twine are perfect together. The sentiment placement is great grounding.
