Fun with Punches

It is my turn to lead the "demonstration" at stamp club.  I've seen some great use of little punches with a Less is More thread on the internet. So I've made a lot of samples to show at club and am having the members bring odds and ends of papers, small "pearls" and rhinestones and their small punches for a Play with Punches Day. Here are my quick samples:

The theme for stamp club is Artist Trading Circles. I cut paste paper I had previously made into circles that were just smaller than 2-1/2" (that was the size of the circle die I have). Stamped a French script stamp with black dye ink over the paste pater.  Inked the edges with black dye ink. Added some decorative paper ribbon and large bird cut outs. Added a tiny yellow rhinestone to the birds eyes.

Asian ATC

The theme for 9ATC Group is Asian. I stamped an Asian style crane in black into onto cream textured origami paper layered it onto red and white origami paper and layered that onto black card stock. Added a strip of black card stock with a gold decorative sticker and then added 3 gold colored floral bits.
