New Stampin’ Up! Pretty Postage & Punch

Stampin up summer mini catalog postage stamp punch card idea
Ahoy!  Ready to "sail" into a new week with a fresh Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO187) and a little punch art?  After a touch of experimenting with the soon-to-be-released Stampin' Up! Postage Stamp Punch (available May 1 in the Summer Mini Catalog), I came up with a sailboat card idea for my grand nephew's birthday.


  • Stampin up punch sail boat birthday card idea The right sail is simply the Postage Stamp Punch cut in half (diagonally) and the left side is half of the remaining half.
  • The little snippet of Daffodil Delight across the the Pear Pizzazz "hull" was created using the the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  It's the part you don't normally use.  Sweet accent.
  • The large Peach Parfait Scallop was produced with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die.  It's not in the catalog but available in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog Carryover List.
  • "24-7" is a sneak peek of the Pretty Postage rubber stamp set, available May 1 in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog.
