  3. I have to say the owl is my favorite too. I didn’t think it would be, but how can I resist something so dang cute?!?!

  4. Wow, which punch isn’t wonderful? I love punches, but my favorite right now would be the Decorative Label punch.

    A girl can never have too many punches!!!!

  5. I too love all the punches. I also enjoy your blog so much. Your cards are so nicely done and I can tell you put a great deal of thought into them. Thanks again for a wonderful blog.

  6. I’m with you. I love the decorative label punch! I am also a big fan of the snowflake punch right now.

  7. That’s like asking me to choose my favorite child!! I love this blog – your creativity is truly inspiring!

  8. Natalie Cannon

    I love the heart punch. It’s just the right size and I can use it in so many ways. A card can always use a little love.

  9. I love them all, but my new fav is the huge circle punch! You can do so much with it! Thanks for sharing your talents with us:)

  10. I love all of my SU punches that I have but I use my photo corner one the most. I love to layer them. Love your blog and seeing all of your creative ideas.

  11. My personal favorite is definitely the owl punch. I have been haing alot of fun with large bird punch recently but the owls have such fun faces!!!

  12. I think today my favorite punch is the owl……tomorrow it might be the butterfly!

  13. I love the new decorative label punch. Mine just came in on Friday.

  14. I have a lot of SU punches that I love, but I would have to say my absolute favorite is the Ornament punch. I love how I can create fast and fabulous holiday cards with this punch as well as tree ornaments, and gift tags. Although coming in a close second is the recent owl punch – it’s so cute and you can customize with patterned or stamped papers.

  15. When I first saw the “two step bird” punch, I didn’t like it at all. A friend of mine purchased it, and I freaking love it! So much versatility to it!!! I use it all the time now.

  16. My favorite punch right now is the butterfly but I love all of them.
    MaryC

  17. I’m not sure which one is my favorite, but my most used one is the Butterfly punch…Love your blog.

  18. Debbie Gordon

    Favorite punch…I love punches and use them on most every card I make. My current favorite is the Extra Large Tag. I use it as a tag, but probably more as a dimension on my cards. I love using it layered, with a hole punched at the top and running ribbon through it.

  19. I have to say it is the owl punch! It is so cute and you can do other things than owls with it! Love, love, love it!

  20. I also love the Owl Punch…but I can get so many different uses out of the three hearts punch.. like buying the paper place mats and using the heart punch one end of them, and then using the hearts that are cut out sprinkled all over the tables. We used this idea for my mom’s 70th birthday which is on Valentines Day… you can use the heart punch on cards, letters and stampbooking… all sorts of ideas… thanks for all you do…

  21. Definately the owl punch but before the owl punch it was my scallop circle punch. I love the versatility of it.

  22. Lynne Hurlburt

    My favourite punch today is the Two Step Bird Punch but it could change in an instant. I love it when a punch is so versatile. Have a great day. Hugs n’ Stuff, Lynne

  23. kathy amstutz

    Who doesn’t love the owl punch??? It’s my fav right now, too, but it just recently the bird punch. That’s the joy of this hobby; there’s always something new & fun that I want/love/need!! Thanks, Mary, for a chance to win your yummy blog candy and, as always, for the constant inspiration.

  24. I love SU punches. My favorite punch today is the curly label punch. We used it with the movers & shapers for a darling card. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards with us.

  25. SADLY WE DONT HAVE THE OWL PUNCH BUT I DO LOVE THE TINY TAG PUNCH THAT IS ONE OF MY TOP 3 PUNCHES.

  27. I LOVE the owl punch! I’m not really much into punches but this one is fantastic, makes quick and easy cards and has so much character!

  28. Sandy (redstampinsam)

    Hi Mary – I’m looking forward to dressing my owl up for the holidays. There are so many costumes for Halloween, and I think he might want to be a turkey or Pilgrim, and yes he is begging to be Santa or Rudolph!!! My ornament punch is also itching to be used in the many ways I have seen online recently. I’ll be buying your favorite on the 19th in one of the SU Sale Bundles…So much fun!

  34. Connie Gregoire

    That is truly a hard question. I love all my punches. I think the one that I am using the most right now is the modern label punch. I seem to reach for that to put a sentiment on the front of a card more often than not. The owl punch is truly a lot of fun too!

  35. My favorite punch so far is my 2 step bird punch. I’m relatively new to stampin up and find it quite addictive!

  38. Terri (blindstamper)

    I think the decorative label punch is awesome, but I’ve been using the scallop circle a lot for the puffy flowers. Love all the punches!

  39. While I love all the SU punches, my favorite by far is the owl punch. Thanks.

  40. All of the SU punches are awesome, but my favorite one for making Christmas cards is the Decorative Label Punch. It’s just so pretty and perfect for the holidays.

  41. I love the decorative label and curly label equally! You can get so much use out of these punches on any card.

  42. I just used my scallop circle punch on a card but really love all my punches. I don’t have the adorable owl punch though…it’s on my wish list πŸ™‚

  43. Righ now mine is the ornament punch, but like you could change from week to week! Thanks for the chance to win!

  44. I think the scallop oval in my favorite. Great for sentiments.

  45. My favoriate punch is the “Modern label” coupled with the word window. thanks

  46. I’m so loving the Owl punch! I like the new design of the punches. SU! Rocks!

  47. I love the punches that go with stamps like the ornament and butterfly punches. But as I become more accomplished with the scallop border and corner punches, they move up my list as well.
    Love seeing your blog notice pop up in my email and am also always eager to view your little 1 minute tutorials you’ve started. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity, Mary.

  48. My favorite right now is the new decorative label punch. I cannot wait to make tons or christmas tags with it!

  49. I’ve been an owl and bird lover for so long, so naturally I love both of those punches. The owl, though, is probably at the top of my list, and he’s great with the (retired) “Owl Together Now” set. (That bag is why I love, love, love the bag you’re offering!). And for basic punches, I love the modern label. Thanks for offering so much blog candy – it’s very sweet of you! Hoot Hoot Hooray!!

  50. The owl punch is so versatile. He can be dressed up in so many ways.

  51. My all time favorite and “go-to” punch has to be the scallop circle punch. Can’t even image not having this SU punch. (but a fast second would have to be the new Owl Punch) Thanks for all your fabulous post Mary – Your blog ROCKS!

  52. Hi Mary, Happy Fall!
    This is hard…my favorite, other than the circle punches that i use SO much, would be the Curly Label Punch! πŸ™‚

  53. Jeannette Dailey

    WOW. That is hard to do. I have just about all of them. I would have to say the one that I am using the most right now is the owl punch as I am turning it into a ghosts for Halloween.

  54. Theresa Pingel

    I am torn between the owl punch and the good old reliable scallop punch! They are both so versatile and useful! Thank you for a wonderful site and blog. I absolute love your one minute videos, you are truly inspirational!

  55. I like the ornament punch I’ve seen a lot of different things made with it

  63. My fav is so sime yet I use it for so many projects… the corner rounder! I have used this punch too many times to count, and it’s still sharp and effective.

    That two-step owl punch is super cute! I’ll have to get one. πŸ˜‰

  64. I agree – the Decorative Label Punch is so great! I love how easy label punches make adding a little extra flair and decoration to cards…

  65. So many. Love them all for what each one can do.:>

  66. I love every single punch but the one I use the most is the Curly Label punch….or the scallop punch…..or the word window punch…or the circle punches….Oh, dear!

  68. My favorite SU punch is the scallop circle.

  69. I love all my punches! I guess I use the various sized circles the most though.

  71. I love all the SU-Punches. But my favorite at the moment is the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

  72. My fav punch is definitely the Two-Step Owl Punch. It is THE most versatile punch yet. I can’t believe how much mileage I got out of it and how much fun it is to use!

    Marcia

  79. I love how the SU punches coordinate with their stamps. The one that I continually use is the Curly Label punch and also the tab punch. Totally awesome punches.

  80. Mary Frances Adams

    I love the owl punch, for now, anyway. I’m sure Stampin’ Up will tempt me with something else in the near future!

  81. I’m a huge fan of punch art and have always loved owls, so I fell in love with the owl punch right away. It’s so versatile and I’ve used it a ton.

  83. Amy G. from PA

    I love the scallop circle punch because I’ve used it so many times. However, at the top of my wish list is the owl punch – it’s just too cute! Depending on what’s on your site, my punch wish list gets shuffled over and over – thanks for the great ideas!

  84. love them all but just ordered the owl punch!

  85. Jeannie Barron

    I love the new decorative label punch. I am having lots of fun with it, but I really love all of Stampin Up! Punches.

  86. Rebecca Torres

    Stampin’ Up punches are the best! They are a staple in my craft room. I have learned how to creatively use punches to get a variety of exquisite looks. I can’t live without circle punches. I love the scallop punches. The butterfly punch allows me to quickly put together a nice card and despite the specificity of the ornament punch, it is actually very versatile. My two new favorites are the boho blossoms punch and itty bitty shapes punch. These are the newest additions to my collection and I can’t wait to play with these punches. Thanks for your inspiration Mary!

  151. Stephanie Daughtrey

    Mary, I love love love the owl punch. Although, I don’t have it. I want it, but I have to wait a little while to
    get it. If I have to pick out of the ones that I have is the scalloped circle punch. I use it alot. I also
    Love my rods that I bought to put them on. (hmmmm so really cool Stampin zone/loft) gave me that idea. Thanks Mary.

  152. So many fun ones to choose from, but I’d have to say the bird punch is my fave right now. Close seconds are the owl and the scallop circle.)

  153. Love the owls. The punch and the one that wakes me up sometimes in the middle of the night. I sneek a peek as he usually is sitting on a deck post. He is magnificent.

    Thanks for offering candy and all you do for us.

  154. I love the scallop punch it is so versatile and makes everything just more fun.

  156. My favorite punch is the scallop punch. You can use it in so many ways and it is good to layer.

  157. Sharon Swindell

    What a generous blog candy ~ thank you for the chance to win! My favorite punch at the moment is also the two step owl punch (probably because it was recently added to my collection!). However, the punch that I use the most has to be my word window punch. Paired with the Modern Label Extra Large punch, it adds such a elegant touch to my cards.

  158. Cheryl McAskill

    My favs are:
    2 Step Bird Punch (used the leaves for Pumpkin Card)
    Oval punch with the Scalloped Oval Punch(love layers)
    Modern Label punch (for most sentiments)
    Bat punch (Halloween cards)
    Owl punch (versatility for making other things)
    The rest are just as good, just not as often!

  159. The owl punch has to be my favorite right now, however, I do use the oval and scallop oval punches quite often.

  160. My favorite punch is still the scalloped cirle — tried and true

  161. My favorite is the scallop circle punch – I consistently reach for that one over and over again. Although I’m hoping to get the Decorative Label punch soon as that is tickling my fancy too. πŸ™‚

  162. My favorite is the circle scallop punch. I love to make flowers with it. I also use the other scallop punches a lot. I just bought the two step bird punch and I love it as well. I so much appreciate all the great ideas on how to use the punches. Thanks for all your inspiration and the chance to win!

  163. My current favorite punch in the Ornament punch. It is very versitile and can be used for many other ideas. I must say I’m not a big owl fan and when the punch came out, I stated that I wouldn’t be getting it. However, now that I’ve seen sooo many wonderful ideas made with the punch (and some cute owls as well), I just broke down and bought it. So when that arrives, I may have a new favorite! Keep up with the great ideas, I look at your blog daily.

  164. My favorite Stampin’ Up punch is probably the Boho Blossoms punch, but I haven’t received my new one yet, so that could change πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity for blog candy!

  165. That is a hard one! My favorite punch today is the decorative label punch. Last week it was the two step owl punch! I love punches and use them on a very regular basis!

  166. I think my favourite is the two-step bird punch…I love the bird but the leaf and branch is very useful as well.

  167. My favorite punch? Has to be the scalloped circle punch. It’s my “go to” punch for a lot of projects and cards.

  168. The Decorative Label Punch is going to be at the top of my list now. It just seems to be just right for Thanksgiving and Christmas time.
    As always, thank you for sharing your creative cards and your wit. I almost always seem to smile/giggle when I read your descriptions.
    Blessings,
    Leslie

  171. The modern label punch is my favorite, because it goes with everything.

  172. My favorite is the “Curly Label” punch. It’s really a barbed quatrefoil, which is also the shape of my Phi Mu sorority pin. It’s had a lot of use in my world!

  173. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies πŸ™‚ SU has so many wonderful punches and such good quality too – love them! I have the own and bird two step stamps on my wish list as I know I’ll love them! However, since I don’t own them yet my two go to punches are the border punches. Love the scalloped and lacy border punches. Just got the ornament punch and am loving that one too. Like I said, so many punches so little time LOL!

  174. The “curly label” punch is my favorite. It’s really a barbed quatrefoil, which is also the shape of my Phi Mu sorority pin. It has had a lot of use in my world!

    Amanda McCann

  228. OMG, I can’t make a decision. It used to be the bird punch until the owl punch came along. Before that it was the scallop circle punch, because there is just so much you can do with one.

    But for today, I’ll have to go with the ornament punch. It’s fantastic for Christmas, but it also makes a wonderful vase all year long, a cute fish, and a gorgeous flower.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  229. Hello. My favorite punch is the Border: oves et festons. It’s very feminine. It’s in french and I don’t know the name in English. I speak French so, excuse me if my English language is not very good. Thank you for your blog. I like it very much. Celine from Quebec province.

  230. Looks like the owl punch is winning. I don’t have that one but may need to get it now that I see the rave reviews. I love my eyelet border punch…..you can use it for every season, make your own ribbon with it,and use brads with it too to bling it up. Love it…right next to my scallop border punch which is soooo versatile too. This blog candy looks yummy. Hope I win. I miss the old catalog’s selections. I wish they could keep everything from year to year. Happy Stamping !!!!!

  231. Sorry to sound like a broken record, but the 2-step owl punch is my current favorite…so versatile! Of course, Stampin Up doesn’t make a bad punch..they’re all great! Love your site, Mary.

  232. all of my SU punches are well used however I seem to be reaching for the modern label punch more frequently over the past month!

  233. I have to say with all these “holidays” coming up the decorative label punch is my go to punch.

  234. My favorite is the scallop circle punch. I use it all the time.

  235. I would have to say that I love the scalloped and circle punches the most, they fit with so many of SU’s stamps and I love the versatility of the owl punch.

  236. Christi Sheroky

    I love ALL of Stampin Up’s punches. I love the oval punches because you can layer them with the scallop oval punch. There are just so many combinations you can choose from.

  237. I like all of my SU punches, but my two favorites are the decorative label punch and the bird punch–I use those leaves all of the time, and the wings make the best tulips!

  238. Chris R. from Iowa

    I guess I don’t actually LOVE any of my punches but there are a few I use a lot. I made the cutest little purses out of the rounded tab punch though and made 3×3 cards that were so cute. So, maybe that is my favorite. I don’t have the owl one. I think the ornament punch will get a work out this Christmas. I have the extra large decorative label punch on order and that might end up being my favorite. Of course, I ordered the Tags Til Christmas set too! Anyway, love your blog and look forward to it daily!

  239. I love the two step bird and can’t believe all the creations I have seen folks do with it. I also use my scallop border a lot.

  240. Mary i have to say that I love the scalloped and the circle punches the most because they fit so many of SU’s stamps. I also love the versatility of the owl punch, too!

  241. The Owl is on the top of my list lease days also! I am currently making magnets with them for my sons class! Thanks Mary for the chance to win!

  242. My most fav punch right now is… The Heart Punch & The Scallop Punch. I really enjoy your website!!

  244. Partial to butterflies, so love that punch!

  245. I love the new 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch and the decorative label punch in the holiday mini!

  246. I really love the bird punch; the leafy branch makes it so versatile too. The owl punch is at the top of my wish list now! Can’t believe the owl design is so “in” at the moment; I used to be a collector of all things owl back in the early seventies.
    I enjoy your blog; you have great taste.
    Kari

  247. It has to be the two step owl punch-there are so many uses for it!

  248. my favorite stampin up punch…the scallop border punch, i love it!!

  249. I love the 2-step bird punch right now as I’m currently creating a holiday card with it. But to be completely honest with you Mary, there are sooooo many Stampin Up punches that I love (read: want). I bought four of them in the old style on June 30th just so that I wouldn’t miss getting them. And to think that I told myself that I would NOT get into buying the punches. I have three racks of them hanging in my stampin closet and am in need of a fourth!
    Thanks for the chance to win some cool blog candy.

  250. De Williamson

    The owl has so much impact and since it is the new kid on the block I love it. A close second is the modern label. Love your site Mary…thanks for all the great inspiration.

  251. I am really liking my new Extra Large Curly Label Punch! I’m trying hard not to use it on EVERYTHING right now!!

  252. Leslie Jensen

    It’s a tie between the scallop circle punches and the eyelet border. I use both way more than I should.

  253. My favorite SU punch is the two-step owl as it is my newest and I am loving [email protected] It is so exciting to have a new punch and I just love that it creates two layers!

  254. Right now I am a fan of the scallop border punch… it is the perfect accent for any card and any occasion. Love it!

  255. Hi Mary!
    What fun blog candy! My favorite is the Two-Step Owl punch! I use it ALL the time!

  266. Do I really have to pick just one ???? I don’t have the Owl punch yet, but I do have the Bird punch which I love. But I also use so many on a daily basis such as the ticket punch, scallop oval, curly label… I could go on and on. Thank you for a chance to win the great blog candy.

  267. My fave changes every time I use a punch – right now it’s the spiral punch because I just altered some notebooks and the spiral holes aligned perfectly with the wire spine. Before that it was the curly label punch because I just made some cool post-it note holders for Halloween. And BEFORE that (and this was just before lunch today), it was the small/large tag punch combo. Sigh – I love them all …

  268. My favorite is the ornament punch….it can be a fish, on the side; a vase, upside sown with the point cut off; OH and also an ornament!!

  269. Patricia Gessner

    I actually love punches so choosing a favorite is really difficult. Maybe the two-step bird punch, maybe the owl punch, maybe the ornament punch…..My favorite is the punch I need to use at any given moment. Would be lost without SU punches.

  270. My favourite punch is the new Decorative Label, every time I use it, I think how did I ever live without this.

  280. My favorite punch is the scallop oval extra-large punch. I reach for that every time I need to add a sentiment. It’s so versatile.

  287. I do love all the punches, but my all time favorite punch is the tag punch. It’s an older one I know but I just love it!

  288. Oh My Goodness! They are ALL so wonderful but I’d have to say the new “Decorative Label” punch is my favorite right now…it’s so versatile!!

  289. I’ve loved the owl punch since it’s debut. But as time goes by, I am amazed how so many creative people have created so many different things from it…. than just a beautiful owl. Thanks for the opportunity to win the goodies.

You cut off the feet on the white piece and I used the google eyes with an orange heart and placed it on the bare branch tree. It is posted on my website and all the ladies that I’ve done workshops and Halloween stamp camp fell in love with the punch. Can’t wait to show them the Penguin.

  301. Of course by popular demand it is the owl punch. I think that is everyones favorite. There is so many things you can make with it. Thank you for a chance to win your yummy blog candy.

Love your site Mary–so much inspiration here!! Thanks for a chance to win. πŸ™‚

  309. How can you pick just one? I forever have my scalloped ones out using them for something. I’ll go w/ that. Nice blog giveaway πŸ™‚

  310. I am with you-if you ask me in a month or 2 I may have a different opinion-I loved the 2 step bird punch then SU introduced the 2 step owl punch-it quickly moved into 1st place with me!!

  311. I also love the bird punch. After seeing some of the cards you posted using it I had to buy it.

  312. My favorite is the Butterfly punch followed by the modern label punch πŸ™‚ I haven’t gotten my Decorative Label punch yet, but when I do its sure to be my new favorite!

  313. I enjoy your blog daily, Mary. Thanks for keeping us inspired,informed,and educated with your beautiful creations and your helpful tips and tricks! Although I have almost all of the SU! punches(past and present) I think one of my favorites is the scallop circle punch (#119854). I have the “old style” but will replace it with a new one if it retires or wears out. I love it for layering circles and to use on 3D items.

  314. Guldara Kirwan

    I love ALL SU punches and always feel bad when some of them get retired… One of many favorite ones is “Curly Label” punch. Love your website for inspirations and ideas!

  318. I agree with many in saying that the scallop circle punch is a favorite for sure. However I’ve become quite attached to my fancy flower XL as I’m making some beautiful roses with it.

  319. SU punches are awesome. I would say my favorite is the owl and bird. They really can make a card pop. Thank you.

  320. You have a wonderful blog. I understand when you say, for this week, my favorite punch is…. Right now mine is the owl punch as well. It is really cute and can be used to make more than just owls.

  321. Hi Mary, thanks so much for the chance to win. You make it hard though, LOL, can’t pick a punch!!! But, I guess in order to qualify I must, so I pick the scallop edge punch from last years sellabration. It adds such elegance to any card!
    Happy stamping!!!!

  322. My go-to punch has been the scallop trim border punch. But I just ordered the owl punch… can’t wait to play with him!

  323. I love the tag punches! I use them often to add a small saying with ribbon.

  324. My go-to punch is my scalloped edge punch. It always adds such a great touch!

  325. What a difficult question- I would have to say the owl and the bird punch are tied as my fav. Thanks for our daily dose of inspiration.

  326. I love all the punches but my fav is the Birdie (2 step) punch. It’s a quick way to make a card and look so elegant.
    Ter πŸ˜‰

  327. michelle james

    my favorite is the large scallop circle! i also love the large bird punch! but i really love youre blog πŸ™‚

  328. The modern label punch is my current favorite. Gives just a bit more room for sentiments, etc. I use the rails from Ikea for storage for all my older style punches (got the idea from your pics of your crafting room) but am about out of wall space……SU keeps making cute punches I just gotta have!

  329. My favorite has got to be the owl punch. I don’t currently own it but it will be my next punch purchase.
    You can do so many different things with it.

  330. I use the scalloped circle a lot,but after reading all the comments on the 2 step owl it will be myase next purch

  331. Jan Schoenfeld

    I would have to say my favorite punch is the Two-Step Owl as it is so versatile.

  332. That is so tough to answer. There are so many great punches. I do love the new decorative label punch, but I use my scallop circle the most!

  333. I love all SU punches, my favorit is the Owl punch.
    I love your blog.
    Greetings frpm germany
    Inge

  334. I love my scallop circle punch. Use it all the time to make flowers.

  335. I like the owl punch as well! I haven’t used it much yet, but I love all the samples I have seen!

  336. Love ths Blog Candy, any chocolate in there? Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us all. PLUS I had to post, could not end it with 333, lol.

    God Bless

  337. Lisa Allington

    I love the round scallop. It is so versitle. i use it the most and always difdferent.

  338. I would love to have the owl punch, but I guess my go-to punch is my scalloped circle.

  339. Shirley Adiaz

    I love the scallop circle punch! You can stamp on it, you can make a flower out of it, you can use it as a tag, you can make different embellishments out of it. Its uses are endless =)

  340. I really like the heart punch. I make a lot of anniversary cards and this punch makes it so easy to add a heart or two. Love your blog and all your ideas. So creative.

  341. I have so many SU punches I have to have two drawers to contain them all and really need to start a third! So to come up with a favorite is a hard task. I guess the one I use the most is the word window punch or is it the combination of the oval punches with the oval scallop punches. I really can’t pick a favorite. I guess it is just what falls out of the drawer at the moment!

  342. I love the Christmas ornament punch and am anxuious to try the flowers you can make with it too! I am new to your blog and I want to thank you for the wonderful tips you share with us!

  343. I love the owl punch. I’ve seen so many cards that are a “hoot” but also if you turn the body of the owl upside down it makes a really cool ghost.

    HI Mary:

    The decorative label punch is so elegant. It can be layered on itself slightly off center to add dimension and a pop of color.

    Happy Stampin’!
    Marlene Heringer

  345. My favorite is the new Decorative Label punch. I love the lines and design it creates all by itself! Thanks for the giveaway.

  346. The two step bird punch has been my favorite lately.

  347. The owl punch is my absolute new favorite! The possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing such great ideas!!

  348. I have to give a hoo haw to the arrow punch. I do a lot of scrapbooking and those little arrows come in VERY handy for pointing out interesting (and sometimes embarrassingly funny) details in a picture. Those little guys are just fun.

  349. I love the big scallop punch that you shared how to make the beautiful flower with. What a great way to make something different out of a scallop punch!

  350. I love the 2 step bird punch. Love the style, and makes a quick card when in a hurry! Add a couple of embellishments and you can be done. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance Mary!

  351. I really like the scallop circle punch. I have made the flower that you demonstrated and it worked great as well as many ideas using the scallop circle punch. I think your web site is the first I check each morning to see what beautiful card you make next.

  352. I love them all but use the Modern Label & word window probably the most.

  353. My favorite punch is the Owl Punch- it’s a multi-tasking punch and I’ve used it for wedding cards, anniversary cards, birthday, thinking of you and get well cards! Kudos to Stampin’ Up for creating this punch!

  354. i love love the scallop circle, i would love to win.

  355. I love the scallop circle. You can do so much with it.

  356. Melissa Velasquez

    I love all the punches but I seem to always use the scallop punch and now with the bigger one even more.

  357. I am obsessed with the new 2 3/8″ scallop punch. It’s fantastic. I do have a minor love affair with the scallop oval as well…just sayin.

  358. Hmmmm…..what to choose??? I use my circle punches a LOT and my scalloped oval. It’s a tie between those two. Thanks for the ‘candy’ Mary–but then every day is candy on your blog!

  359. Hard to choose just one punch, as I love them all. But lately I’ve been using the Scallop Trim border and corner punches on a lot of my projects. They make a great mat for a focal, and pretty edges, too.

  360. I love all the stampin up punches, but my favorite is any punch that can be used with a matching stamping – especially love the new Holiday mini set perfect punches! A great new stamp to use with the Ornament punch.

  361. Judy from California

    Love, love everything you do. My favorite punch is actually two punches: Modern Label and Word Window. I use them and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set on almost every card I make. Thank you for all of your ideas.

  362. The Dotted Swiss Scallop Border is a great new one to layer onto my cards.

  363. My favourite would have to be the good old scallop circle punch although the large butterfly comes in a close second.

  364. How can I choose just one punch? I usually layer my punches, the word window, modern label, curly label & oval go great together, and I just love my 2-step bird punch. The ornament punch has so much versatility. I love using my punches to make other things too. I love every punch I own and I covet the punches I don’t own yet.

  365. I would say my fave (or most used) is actually 2 punches, the word window layered on the modern label punch. It’s great for adding a sentiment and I love layering. Although I just got the new decorative label punch and I am sure it well be getting much use in the near future!

  366. I could not give up a single one of my punches, I love them all but I am with you…my favorite at least for now is the decorative label punch. It adds such pizazz to my cards.

  367. I really like the owl punch

  368. I love my punches for creating dimension and adding sentiments. I love the owl punch and all the great samples I have seen using it. Thanks for the wonderful blog and the opportunity to win blog candy!

  369. I don’t have the owl punch, YET, so my favorite is the bird punch. I am really having fun with this one!
    Thanks for the chance to win some yummy stuff!!

  370. Wow….what a giveaway……..
    My favorite punch at this time (I change my mind as soon as a new one comes out LOL) has got to be the owl punch…it also can double for a ghost which is great for the Halloween season!

  371. I love my circle punches. They can be used for any type of card! I

  372. I love all thing punches. If you can imagine it you can punch it.

  373. The modern label punch is probably my favorite – or at least the one I go to the most. It works so well to layer with other punchs to really create a focus point for my sentiment.

  374. I love the Decorative Label punch right now. But actually I am in love with all the wonderful punches that SU has. They are all so versatile and fun. It also depends on what is being shown if that is my favorite of the day.

  375. I love the Owl punch. You get a lot of “punch” for your penny because you get several punches in one….several circles, a heart punch and you can get creative with Mr. Owl’s body and use it differently. However, I am with Mary on the Decorative Label from the Holiday Mini. Its my new fav right now.

  376. The curly label is still my fave, but I adore the ornament punch too!

  377. Terri Isferding

  382. I love to use the scalloped circle punch, it’s so versitile.

  456. I’d have to say at the moment the bird punch as you can do so much with it …………. closely followed by the scallop circle punch but I really love all Stampin’ Up! punches they make cards look so much more professional.

  457. I love the ornament punch. From making love fish, doll faces, to actual ornaments, it is proving to be very versatile. But I am beginning to be very fond of the owl punch as well.
    Thanks, Donna

  458. My favorite punch is the two step bird punch from last year. I love all the stamps that go with the punches from stampin up.

    Gotta love the owl.

  475. you’re right! the owl punch is a “hoot”!
    i love it! (i only love it from far away since i don’t have one… but i tried cutting something like it with scissors. turned out quite well… adding wobbly eyes is always good)

  477. The two step bird punch is my all time favorite. But like most everyone else, I love all my punches. Thanks for your wonderful blog too!

  478. I’m madly in love with the 2 step owl punch – but my go to punch is the one that looks like eyelet lace. It adds just the perfect little touch and is great peeking out from the bottom of a strip of ribbon πŸ˜‰

  479. Tough decision but I will say that owl punch is my favorite until I change my mind again.

  480. How can I chose just one punch. I find myself making cards using at least three punches on each one. I love how they all coordinate together.

  481. Good Morning! I would really like to say the scallop corner and boarder were my favorite, but I can never line them up right, so I would have to say my favorite is the butterfly! Thanks for all of the wonderful tips and ideas!

    I really enjoy using all the punches that I have, but definately don’t use them “enough” – However right now I think I like the bird punch – since it also has the branch with leaves that you can use alone. Love your website.

  498. Oooh candy. We love candy. I think that my favorite punch has to be the bird. I haven’t used it much yet. So, I just want to add that my most used punch has to be my scallop circle. It just seems to be one that I end up using all of the time.

  499. I love the Modern Label (extra large) because it fits so many stamp phrases!

  500. My favorite punch used to be the Two-Step Bird Punch and have used it lots. But after seeing the decorative label punch, I believe that will be my new favorite. Never did get the owl punch but haven’t ruled it out entirely. Thanks for the awesome blog candy offer!

  502. Penny S. - Hawaii

    I have to say that I have quite a bit of punches and love them all but my the owl because it is so versatile with the option to change up the pieces to any owl look different. I’d also have to say I like the decorative label punch too it allows you to either go casual or fancy on the inside. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and have a wonderful rest of the week. Aloha…
