An Ornament Punch is not just for Christmas!

Well we have snow again so I am getting some bonus time with my stamps! Just as well really as I have lots of cards I want to make!

Over the next couple of posts I am going to show you some non Christmas projects you can make using your Ornament Punch from Stampin’ Up! I love the shape of this punch and I love that there are stamp specially designed to go with it, they make putting ideas together so fun.

Now today would really not be the weather for it, but sometimes I dream of floating around in a hot air balloon, beautiful blue skies ... and how fun would it be in a balloon that was this pretty?

The balloon was stamped from Delightful Decorations and the lines to the basket are drawn with a Stampin’ Write Marker. The background clouds were made by swirling ink on a dauber around the edges of a punched out scallop oval.

Next I am going to share a card inspired by one my wonderful friend Jules showed at Convention – the kissing fishes! How adorable are these two!

I have also used a punched out small heart for their lips, small circles and a five petal flower for their fins and tails.

I will be back with more ideas to show you that your ornament punch is not just for Christmas soon. In the mean time keep warm and happy stampin’
