Punchy Punches

It took me a little while to get around to venturing into using punches, and now I use them on almost every project, which is particularly handy when a challenge is around punches like over at Stampin' Royalty at the moment.
I've seen these Onesie cards featuring on a few blogs over the last year or so and thought they would be good to make for a friend who has recently given birth to BEAUTIFUL twin girls. I like to make a card for each baby, both different as each baby is unique. The 'press studs' at the bottom were a handy way to use up a few retired eyelets too :) I've kept them quite simple, with most of the details being punch-derived.

I couldn't resist posting this little cutie for this challenge either. I love making this little stegosaurus!! This time he's featuring in Baja Breeze and Soft Suede (which are very boy-ish colours, so this fits with the criteria of Pile It On this week), with DSP from the Level 3 Hostess Set - Hand Drawn Bundle. Details on what was used to make this little fellow can be found at this post.

And last but not least, here's a creation by Luana (remember, she's 3!) for her Nanny for Mother's Day!! I now have no loose hearts floating around the craft area!

Thanks for visiting!

hi Natasha,
I am sorry about McLinky, for some bizarre reason the change date was moved and it closed today, I fixed it and added your card.

Gorgeous cards btw... love that dinosaur.

Hi Natasha,

I love your blog, so much yummy inspiration. I am also in Karen's down line and she mentioned you are flying down for convention. Yeah!!! I just wanted to pop over and say Hi. I look forward to meeting you soon.
PS Maybe you can show me how to make that cute dino card. With three boys that will definately come in handy.
Cassie xoxo
