VC Rocks Punches Galore Build a Blossom Butterfly



Hello and welcome to the August VC Rocks blog hop.  This is our final hop for this year, so I hope you enjoy it!  On this hop, you will see lots of creations made with Stampin' Up punches. 

You can begin the blog hop by going to http://www.vcrocks.blogspot.com/.  You can also go to Patrice Herrera's blog, "My Little Patch of Dirt."  Patrice is a great stamper and friend! 

I have to admit, punch art is not my gift.  99% of the time, I really can't look at punches and see how to make other shapes with them.  However, the other day, I saw some butterflies in a magazine and they reminded me of one of the "Build a Blossom" petals.  So, I stamped and punched out four petals, and sure enough, it made a butterfly!   


I am really happy with how it turned out and can see a whole herd...or flock...or a bunch of butterflies made in pinks, oranges, and yellows.  :)

I hope you've enjoyed my stop on the VC Rocks Blog Hop! 

Happy Stamping!


I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:

Build a Blossom and Inspired By Nature Stamp Sets
Garden Green and Elegant Eggplant Classic Inks
Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Wisteria Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant Card Stock
1/8" Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon
1/4" Garden Green Grosgrain Ribbon
Large Oval, Scallop Oval, and Blossom Petals Builder Punches

Now, be sure to visit Karen Gibson's blog "Krafting with Karen."  Karen is another amazing stamper and a friend!

This is so cute and I love your color choices. I am just the same way as you. I can't visualize anything different with a punch other than what it orginally was meant to be. Thanks for the fun.
