Paper Crafting Blog Hop - A Peaceful Deer Sale-A-Bration

 

Welcome! It's time for another great blog hop! Our August Paper Crafting Blog Hop is featuring punches---YAY! This hop features a group of talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you featuring our theme this month, so be sure to stop at each of our blogs. You may have arrived from Sandy's blog. She had a great project!



Building a "Peaceful" Deer

Are you like me? While I like die sets that cut out images from a stamp set, I really enjoy the ease and time saving benefits of a punch---especially when making multiples.


I had SO much fun getting "punchy" with the DEER BUILDER punch!  Doesn't this deer just look so playful?! 




I love that you can get this punch as a bundle with its PEACEFUL DEER coordinating stamp set. And that there is special coordinating Designer Series Paper, called PEACEFUL PRINTS that is available for free with a qualifying purchase ($50 in the U.S.) during August - September 2021 while supplies last




My punch project is a card I made recently for a Sale-A-Bration swap showcasing the August-September 2021 Sale-A-Bration free items. I thought the punched deer created such a nice focal point on its own that it didn't need to be stamped. I chose to punch the deer and antlers in Basic Black cardstock to create my deer silhouette. This gives you a very quick way to add a focal element without having to stamp the deer---and then punch---for when you want to save a little time (great when multiple cards are your goal 😉). 

Let me know what you think of my holiday card using this punch and all of its coordinating products!
