Stampin up perfect punches pizza box
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!"

  1. The Happy Birthday and Joy at Christmas cards are my two favorites. The colors are so crisp and makes the images stand out. Thanks for sharing.

  2. My fave is the Thanks card in black and blue. Thanks for some inspiration to make these cute little cards so vibrant!

  3. What a wonderful project Mike did! I love the bright colors – they pack a lot of punch in a 3×3 card!

  4. I always love Mike’s stuff. There’s a certain amount of order and balance, but a good dose of pure creativity, too! Thanks for letting us see his talents.

  5. Hey Mary,

    He does great work. I have followed his blog and I love his work. Thanks for featuring him. Good ideas!!!

  6. 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

  7. Mike is always an inspiration, he has created some amazing work recently. My personal favorite? The congratulations card – love the matting on the modern label punch. TFS!

  8. These cards are fabulous. I’d like to know what punches Mike used to back the Congratulations, My Friend, and Happy Birthday sentiments. I don’t recognize them as Stampin’ Up punches. Thanks in advance.
