Punch Art Blog Hop

 Punch Art Blog Hop
 "" Tab Punch"

Hello and welcome to the inaugural South Pacific punch art blog hop!!!
We are a group of Stampin Up demonstrators from
Australia and  New Zealand who love our Stampin Up punches. We have gotten together to showcase a whole heap of fantastic ideas of ways to use the punches that you can purchase from Stampin Up.  We hope we will inspire you and encourage you to use those punches in new and beautiful ways. Please leave a comment and let us know what you think to go in the draw to win some yummy scrummy punch art blog candy (this offer not available to su demos)

 If you are here then you may have just come from  Amys  blog, If you have just hopped on here then Grab a cuppa and hop aboard  and work your way around the blog hop for some punch art inspiration....
 Ok My punch I have chosen to showcase is the tab punch:

Project #1

A post it note "clipboard"  which has magnets on the back to put on the fridge. The tab punch is used on the top to form the "clip" of the clipboard.

Soft suede is clear embossed with the woodgrain background stamp.  Newsprint DSP is the paper on the clipboard.  Remember stamp (also used on post it notes in corner) is from the new set word play. 

Cupcake Shop

Cupcake base is the tab punch as is the frosting of the cupcakes,  the scallops on the canopy of the cake shop is also created with the tab punch.

The label under the sentiment is the tab punch, cut in half and restuck together to fit in the bottom part of the card

1st cupcake has crystal effects on the frosting, 3rd cupcake has crystal effects on the cherry to make it all shiny - yumm!!!

White gel pen creates the creases on the cupcake patty pan
Project #3
Evening Dress

Made with all tab punchies, black embossing on black punchie, Dazzling diamonds on the skirt.  The neckline is made using the tab punch but on the side.

The white border has the corners punched out with the tab punch also. The black base cardstock has black embossing around the border using the priceless stamp set.
