Carmen’s Cute Punched Critters

You should have seen all the cute little punched animals that Carmen DeBruce brought to Stamp Club last Friday!  Well, wait…you can…I took pictures of her entire zoo!

Aren't these little creatures simply adorable!  The pictures don't do
them justice because she added their parts with Dimensionals, so they
are 3D!  Too Cool!

Now, please note, that I am simply "assuming" which punches were used, and you all know the hazards that assuming can cause.  For more details, you can purchase the tutorials.  I will post the link to the complete instructions when I get it from Carmen.

I am continually amazed at the versatility of Stampin' Up! punches—who knew you could create SO many characters by layering some simple shapes!  And, you can use them for a variety of projects—on cards, as accents for scrapbooks, to embellish boxes and bags, as nametags, as magnets, just to name a few ideas!   Too Cool!

But, wait, there's more!  Carmen didn't stop there!  Oh no.  She took the punch art to another level by combining punched shapes with the Build-A-Bear Bigz Die.  Stay tuned for those tomorrow.

Thanks, again to Carmen for allowing me to share your cute critters!
