Have you ever been working on a card and you just don't have quite the right punch for the job, well this week's "Quick Tip Tuesday" will help you discover more options. I was working on some quick 3" x 3" Valentines cards and wanted to punch out my sentiment with Stampin Up's "Word Window Punch". It was too large from my small 3" x 3" card, so I altered the size of the punch. Here are the steps to how I did it:
Stamp you sentiment, in my case it was the saying "Be Mine".
Next I place into my punch where I wanted the front part of my sentiment to appear.
Take a sticky not and attach sentiment to the tip.
Place back into punch from the top and work it to your desired location.
Punch out. Here are the two pieces that I ended up with.
Finally, place sentiment on you card. Below are several examples that I used this technique with.
Here is a video from, Dawn's Stampin Thoughts, that explains using punches in alternate ways.
I hope you enjoyed this quick tip and be sure to come back on Wednesday to find out our winners.
