ICS Blog Hop, Passion for Punches, Christmas Cards

Hi Crafty Friends!
Welcome to September and to the ICS Blog Hop.
Tonight it's all about the PUNCHES!

I am so excited about all the punches in our new Holiday Catalog, that I decided to feature them in this month's Christmas Card Class.

How cool is this? Three cards and not a die in sight! Let's take a closer look.

My number one favorite punch is the in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. This is such a cool kit! Stamps, ink, and a super cute punch. Add some lovely DSP ( Joyous Noel) and the poshest ribbon ever (Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8" Reversible Ribbon) and you have a quick and lovely card.

You must buy this Christmas Bulb Punch! It's so fun! And really, really easy. The only stamping on this card is the sentiment. I punched the lights from card stock and the end of the lights from Silver Foil paper. The sentiment comes from the coordinating stamp set, Making Christmas Bright.

Another punch getting lots of use from me is the Sprig Punch. I love it. It punches a two sprigged sprig (?!) which can easily be snipped apart for fun layering.  All the stamping for this card is from the Feathers and Frost set.

Hmmm...If you haven't noticed yet, I am really enjoying all the new punches we have. And I'm super excited to share them with my crafty friends in class next week.
