He's a force on the stamping scene.  I'm proud to have Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Mike Funke as part of my Stampin' Pretty Pals.  His projects are clean, simple and always impeccable.  His Stampin-Style blog it a favorite to many for his amazing talent and easy to follow tutorials.

Stampin up perfect punches happy birthday Mike created the Mini Pizza Box and set of six 3 x 3 notecards (plus Mini Square Envelopes–not shown) above for the Stampin' Pretty Pals swap at the Stampin' Up! Convention last July.  I was a lucky recipient.  Starting today, he's put together a three part tutorial, sure to help you master the pizza box . . . including how to produce custom sizes.  I'm ready to go to "school!"

  8. Another great job by Mike! His colour choices are always so vibrant. My favourite is the Happy Birthday card!

  9. Hi HW Queen:

    Actually, Mike used 100% Stampin’ Up! He used the Movers and Shapers Punch Windows (115953–works with the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die 114506) which coordinate with SU Punches for “Thanks” and “Congratulations”. He used the Movers and Shapers Holiday Windows (116821) for “My Friend” and Lots of Tags (114508) Sizzlits for the “Birthday” card.

    Hugs, M
