4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #9 - Punches/Dies!

Good morning everyone! Welcome back to another challenge from 4 Crafty Chicks. It's my week to host the challenge and I picked punches/dies for my challenge. I was super doooper excited to try my hand at making gorgeous pansy flowers using the butterfly punch from Stampin' Up! There are sooo many tutorials out there on how to make them. I chose the technique that I saw on It's an Inkin' Stampede....and let me just say - they are FUN and EASY, PEESY to make! I will definitely be making more of them to put on my cards in the future!

My card also qualifies for the following challenges:

ABC Cards - 'G' is for GLITTER
Creative Card Crew - punches

Stamps: Verve; Paper: Bashful Blue, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi; Ink: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Concord Crush, Versafine Onyx Black; Accessories: perfect dots embossing folder, nestabilities, butterfly punch, 5 petal flower punch, jewel brads, dimensionals, glue pen, dazzling diamonds glitter, black marker

I hope you make some time to sit and get crafty with us CHICKS this week! There are so many things you can do with punches/dies. I cannot WAIT to see your wonderful creations. Be sure to link your card, scrapbook page or 3D altered item on the 4 Crafty Chicks blog for your chance to win this week's prize donated by Melissa.

Happy craftin' and good luck!
